Valentine Showcase 2010-Plus Giveaway!
I love the creative world that is encompassed in Etsy.com. As I've come to buy and sell there I've seen so many wonderfully unique things that you just won't find elsewhere. Not to mention, the mass produced commercial items these days just don't say "I love you" for Valentines, to me they just say "Here's your obligatory gift". Having worked for a florist shop last year during Valentines I can tell you that Valentines is the absolute worst time to buy roses as the quality is sacrificed by growers and shippers for quantity.
I decided to compile this multi-post showcase from ideas I've collected and hours of thoughtful searching. While I tried to get a wide variety of items, the selection will of course be somewhat biased by my personal taste, so if you don't find just the right thing here for your Valentine, hop on Etsy and search around, I guarantee you'll find something! To view more information and more/larger pictures of each item, click on the appropriate link below the picture.
