Local Gifts for Your Valentine: Midwest edition

flowers and jewelry gift

“Roses are red, violets are blue, local gifts say ‘I love you!’”

Just a little more than a week left until Valentine’s Day! We’re rounding up flower arrangement and gift combinations from local businesses in this mini-blog series. With this guide, shopping local is almost too easy.

Today, check out the flower and gift combinations we love from Cleveland, OH; Columbus, OH; Dayton, OH; Chicago, IL; Detroit, MI; Leawood, KS; and Mitchell, SD.

Keeping with a non-traditional Valentine’s Day theme, these arrangements go beyond red roses with creativity and innovation. Peach instead of red, the addition of complementary colors, and upgraded vases are fresh ideas that still send a message.

Don’t forget to check out the other posts in this blog mini-series. Our Northeast editionWest edition, and Southeast edition are here to guide you this VDay!

Can’t pick an arrangement? Make your life easy by sending Designer’s Choice flowers. All you have to do is select a price point and color. Our florist partners will take care of the rest!
