WASHINGTON — Looking for something special for that extra-special someone?

Flowers and chocolate are always a good staple but this year why not take your gift giving up a couple notches and give something truly unique. 

How about flowers that last all year long? Or a nice relaxing evening full of self-care? Does your special person have a green thumb? Or like to pretend they do? 

Check out these fun and unique gift ideas from small businesses for Valentine's Day (or any day of the year). 

For a Romantic Night-in with your sweetie!

What’s more perfect than snuggling up with your special someone, turning on your favorite movie and snacking on some Pop on the Block Popcorn! That sounds like a perfect date night to me!

Wrap yourself up in the comfort of a Simply Organic Bamboo blanket! Simply Organic Bamboo products are crafted from organically grown 100% bamboo viscose. Bamboo is softer than cotton, helps you stay cool all night, is eco-friendly & non-toxic. Simply organic Bamboo products are also ideal for those with sensitive skin or allergies as bamboo naturally repels mold, mildew and dust mites!

Pop on the Block is a family-owned small business and offers more then 50 flavors of popcorn! From spicy to savory to sweet concoctions, there is something for everyone! Pop on the Block also uses high-quality, non-GMO, and Kosher ingredients at their store!
