Here is a list of things to help you think outside the (chocolate) box for Valentine’s Day gifts for your sweetie, here’s a list of places to go shopping, wine, dine, and be merry in Hartland!
- Try spas like Reflections Salon & Spa, Michele's Salon & Day Spa in Brighton or Awesome Chiroprator or Salon 3 in Hartland.
One of the easiest ways to please your Valentine is to create your own gift basket filled with things they love. This can include flowers and chocolates, gift cards for Tyme Well Spent, and a gift card to Biggby Coffee, Kahuna Coffee or Leo's Coney Island. Or you can create a movie lovers basket by purchasing a large popcorn dish from Meijer or Walmart along with a box of popcorn, popcorn seasoning, a box of their favorite candy and a movie or two. If you can't find a movie you think they'd like, you can gift them a subscription to Netflix so they can enjoy a variety of movies and television shows.
- Try goodies from Marv's Bakery, Just Baked, Kathleen's Cookies, or Grand Traverse Pie Company
