JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Here are some fun and unique gift ideas for this Valentine’s Day. All of the items were featured on the Morning Show Wednesday, February 3rd.


Instead of a box of chocolates, how about a box of soaps? These 4 handmade soaps are made from 98% natural ingredients and smell like amber chocolate, a chocolate bar, fudge brownie and raspberry drizzle. They are made in Georgia and retail for $28 at uncommongoods.com

Next up we have a Beer Can Trap. These are laser cut wooden maps that hold beer bottle caps. You can get Florida or any one of the other states. You can also pick up a map of the USA for slightly more. They are made in Tampa and you can find them for $34.95 on thegrommet.com

Jewelry is always popular and we have these pretty sterling silver stack rings from Chamilia. They have 28 designs to choose from including a classic style, birthstones,  words of love and solitaires. The rings feature genuine Swarovski crystals, zirconia or Italian Murano glass. They are priced between $30 and $70 and are available for purchase at all three Espling jeweler locations in Jacksonville. 

Kelly Hennessey is a local artist who creates tiles and sells them at Riverside Arts Market every Saturday, in addition to Etsy and Facebook. The tiles are all hand-painted ceramic bisque and are then fired at Doing Dishes pottery. The tiles can be displayed in wooden frames, easel backings or even with wire hangers. They retail from $16-$40 and custom orders are welcome. Kelly can also take photos and fire them onto a plate. The tone will be sepia. You can find Kelly at RAM, or email her at 365tad@gmail.com  

Finally, ditch the roses this year and give something that will last a little bit longer. A heart succulent garden is low maintenance and also romantic. It comes from gifts.com and retails for $39.99. Today there is a coupon code for 15%.  It contains succulents and instructions. For more info go to gifts.com.
