You Don’t Need to Be a Poet
But sometimes just writing down how you feel about your partner means more than flowers or chocolates. Skip the Hallmark store and check out a local stationary shop, like Cute Buttons Gift and Paper Boutique in Cary. Pick out stationary in his/her favorite colors or find that unique design you know they will love. Not sure where to start? It’s okay to ask for help! These little details are what makes the difference, and many times these local shops will have great matching gifts if you wanted to add something extra.
Concert tickets are a great gift, especially when you get to share the show with someone you love. Whether you like checking out local talent at coffee shops and small venues or seeing more mainstream artists in stadiums – make an evening out of it and include dinner reservations or post-concert dessert at a near by eatery. For a list of upcoming shows check out Live Nation.
Sure you can buy jewelry from major brand, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! BUT you will find the most unique gifts by shopping at local boutiques and many times those items are one-of-a-kind. Places like Marketplace By: Gifts with a Heart are great because they have a selection from multiple artisan vendors around the area.
Be a Tourist
Yes, brewery tours and restaurant tours are popular among the visitors to the area but we often forget to explore our own towns and nearby cities ourselves! Taste Carolina and Triangle Food Tour are great places to start.
Plan a Staycation
Sometimes a change of scenery is a great way to recharge and reconnect. Groupon always has great deals, for instance you can get a room at the Ramada Plaza Nags Head Oceanfront – Kill Devil Hills for just $49/night (normally $67/night) or visit Asheville and stay at the 1847 Blake House Inn Bed & Breakfast for 2 nights for just $102/night (normally $145/night).
You still have time to find the perfect gift for your loved one – so make it special![ct id="ct_Address_text_c29d" property="title | description | value"]
