‘Tis the season of love! The grocery store shelves are filled with stuffed-bears gripping plush hearts, and the card aisle is currently an explosion of pinks and reds. But this year, rather than give your significant other the same card you bought last year, but forgot, so you bought the same card again this year, and now they’re annoyed because you made so little effort, give the love of your life something special. Give them something unique that you can only get in the Rocket City.
Here are 5 unique gifts from the Rocket City that say “I love you!"
Bouquet from The Paper Petals Co.
Beautifully realistic paper bouquets handcrafted right here in the Rocket City! You can find their studio inside Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment.
