Mel Heinrichs floral creations are modern, fun, and gorgeous. She has a knack for using unique flowers in her bouquets, making them way more interesting than the standard dozen roses for your loved one (although she’ll make those bouquets, too). Her smaller bouquets are perfect for teachers, friends, and neighbors. If you don’t plan to dine out this year, ask about her centerpieces to make your table as romantic as possible.

Any one of her classic designs would make great gifts, but she also offers ways to customize pieces for seemingly infinite possibilities. Jewel Ya designs are made with high-end metals and semi-precious and precious stones. If you are looking for a perfect “Galentine’s Get-together”, book her for one of her Make It & Take It parties. Each guest will have a blast and go home with 2 bracelets.

You can’t have Valentine’s Day without chocolate, but why the heart box full of mystery fillings no one really likes? Dottie started her candy business making lollipops (hence the name) but has expanded into a variety of sweets. She has chocolates, caramels, toffees, brittles, lollipops, and even candy shot glasses to make sure your sweetie gets their perfect sweet.
