Flowers, candy, a giant gorilla clutching a heart. Maybe it’s the thought that counts, but this year, why not ratchet up your Valentine’s gift-giving game? A handmade Valentine’s Day gift tells your sweetie, “I made this with love, just for you” instead of “I stopped at the pharmacy on the way home”. We dare you to up the ante, Southwest Michigan romantics, and we’re making it easy: just show up at one (or all!) of these four fun-filled Sunset Coast events and you’ll have a blast – plus go home with a candle, painted wine glass, paperweight or vintage-inspired card to impress a special someone on your handmade Valentine’s Day gift list.
