Creative boutique gifts for Valentine’s Day

The thing about Valentine’s Day is that it can get a little predictable. Candy. Cologne. A lacy bit for the boudoir. Nice, but meh. This year, think outside the heart-shaped box. Visit a stylish local boutique and find something different, unusual, something your valentine will remember. Because your special someone is just that – special. Let them know it.
