WEB EXCLUSIVE It’s the season of love—and that applies to both showing love for local businesses and your significant other, which we’ve made easy with this local gift guide for Valentine’s Day. Support these local businesses while surprising your girl, guy or pals with the perfect gift, curated just for them!

Vita Vite Date Night Wine Basket

This cute gift basket from Vita Vite makes for the ultimate couples (or girls!) night in. With a cocktail recipe book, a bottle of fine wine, a cheese board and cutlery set, a wine tumbler and a wine-themed candle, you’re set for the perfect evening of romance. This may sound cheesy, but it makes for a grate night in. A gouda pair, one might say. 😉

Vita Vite also has a great gift shop with everything from comical mugs and witty wine tumblers to sparkling cocktail recipe books and more. You just can’t go wrong.

Dinner from The Butcher’s Market

Get ready for a hot night in the kitchen with beef bourguignon, a classic French dish and the perfect romantic dinner for two, using The Butcher’s Market‘s burgundy wine steak tips and mushrooms. The market’s easy slow-cooker recipe makes sure you’re freed up to spend the rest of your night–ahem–not in the kitchen.

Peppertrain Jewelry

These fun earrings, handcrafted by local jeweler Kaitlin Ryan at Peppertrain Jewelry, are the perfect addition to any outfit. Buy them for your galentines! Buy them for your girlfriend! Buy them for yourself! (Everyone needs a pair.) Check out Peppertrain’s website for more unique handmade jewelry.

Tea from Tin Roof Teas

Get your hottie some hot tea, because what cold, stressful winter day isn’t perfect for winding down with a warm sip? Get it while it’s hot at Tin Roof Teas in Cameron Village—there are tons of unique teas from which to choose, making it easy for you and your boo to cuddle up on the couch together with each of your preferred brews for a relaxing evening.

Coley Home Robe

Speaking of unwinding, give the gift of relaxation to your SO this Valentine’s Day with this lightweight Palm Robe from Coley Home in Charlotte. It comes in three different colors and makes for the perfect loungewear.

Bracelets from Zass

These edgy jewelry cuffs are handmade from recycled materials by a mother-daughter duo right here in Raleigh. Support Zass by snagging a pair or two for you and your gal-friends (they’ll look so cute during Galentine’s brunch). And be sure to check out Zass’ Valentine’s Day collection (for a limited time) here.

Heart-Shaped Wreath from Logan’s Garden Shop

Flowers are nice and all, but they come and go so fast, and, let’s be honest, they’re a little basic this time of year. This heart-shaped magnolia wreath from Logan’s Garden Shop presents a unique and gorgeous alternative that will last way longer.

Blue Water Spa Gift Card

There’s not a single person (that we can think of) who wouldn’t enjoy a spa day. Enter Blue Water Spa! Gift cards can be redeemed on all medical spa services, including Botox, dermal fillers, laser treatments, CoolSculpting and spa services. Go as a couple—or treat yo’self—and have yourselves a dayyyy.
