Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (February 14th for those who need a friendly reminder!), and once again we find ourselves madly *in love* with our community as you all try to shop local whenever possible. It’s true, holidays make the best excuses.

Not only does the shop local movement help Buffalo and Western New York’s economy and local businesses stay afloat during this extremely tough time, it generally results in better gift giving. And that’s a fact, Jack!

There are so many great spots to grab Valentine’s Day gifts locally, and in addition to the popular (for good reason) flowers and chocolates, we encourage you to think outside the box with your gift giving in 2021.

Here are some fantastic Valentine’s Day gift and experience ideas from Step Out Buffalo’s advertising partners and friends:
