Our Favorite Valentine's Day Gifts From Parma Heights Small Businesses

Valentine Postal Puzzles from Village Cards & Gifts, Parma Heights

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. This Valentine’s Day, consider making it extra special by stopping into local shops for some unique gifts that will knock their socks off. I personally think small shops have a better selection than the big places, and you are supporting your community. When you’re purchasing presents for your sweetheart, consider shopping at locally owned flower shops, card shops, sweet shops, gift shops and other Parma Heights businesses. For extra impact, check out the stores highlighted on the Parma Heights 2ND Fridays Facebook page for Valentine's Day promotions!!
