Valentine's Day cartoon for last-minute gifts

Celebrate love and support small businesses! I curated affordable gift and card ideas for everyone, whether you're doing this holiday on your own, with a friend, a partner, a spouse, or even a "situationship." I included products and ideas from other small businesses, and of course, some of my own. Plus, these gift ideas are helpful for any occasion, so save this for later! There is also a video version below.


Keep the flame alive on Valentine's Day


Come on, baby, light my fire! Here are two fun creative candle options.


City Bonfires - portable mini fire pit


I bought everyone in my family (and myself) a City Bonfire for Hanukkah! You light it outside and it creates a mini bonfire. They have lids for special occasions and sell smores sets.

Evil Queen Candles


I found these soy "candles with attitude" through my favorite store in Queens, The Brass Owl, but they ship throughout the US and Canada. They have quirky candles for every occasion.
