Valentine’s Day Kitten Grams from Spokane’s Kitty Cantina are back! Last year, Kitty Cantina was able to raise over $500 for their Disadvantage Kitty Sponsor Program (DKSP), which helps to change the lives of senior kitties and cats with special needs.
So what is a Kitten-Gram? It’s a digital Valentine ‘card’ featuring one of Kitty Cantina’s adopted shelter cats, complete with a witty kitty pun!
As someone who ordered… quite a few… last year for my husband, it’s such a delight to see your recipient read and appreciate a Kitten-Gram! Some are sweet, some are sassy – and some are designed specifically for your ex(es). Check out the Kitty Grams and place your orders here!

Anthesis Co. Flowers
Of course, for many of us, Valentine’s Day isn’t the same without flowers! Show them you care with ‘can’t live without it’ size flowers from Anthesis Co.. While supplies last, order a Valentine’s Day Flower Hat Box from Anthesis Co.
You will want to place your order early though – they sell out quickly!
Winc Wine Subscription
Do you have a wine lover in your life who seems to have, and know, every wine? Or maybe your loved one likes wine, but doesn’t know what type of wine is their ‘favorite’ yet. Give them a gift that keeps giving with a Winc wine subscription!
Winc has you take a short survey to help identify the type of wine you like, then sends you 4 bottles of wine in 1, 2, or 3 month subscriptions. You can subscribe for as long or as little as you like, and you can review each wine to let Winc know what you love – and don’t love – to get a better match next time.
Is your sweetie more into sweet treat bouquets vs. flower bouquets? If so, then check out Fruit Bouquets dipped strawberries! You can choose from traditional chocolate dipped strawberries to ‘gourmet dipped fancy strawberries’ with nuts and more.
You can also order a traditional edible fruit bouquet, which comes with tons of fresh fruit and chocolate goodies. Find the perfect gift from Fruit Bouquet here!
Looking for a delightful gift basket, but not quite sure what to get your loved one? Visit Weav for local gifts, like this Garland Mini Gift Basket (my personal favorite!). You can also choose from tasty treat gift boxes, housewarming gift boxes, and one off gifts to create your own basket!
