Cooks of Crocus Hill
Minnesotans are fortunate to have several locally owned, high-end kitchen specialty stores.
Flowers, chocolate and jewelry stores are featured preeminently as Valentine’s Day rolls around each year, but when you’ve found that special person in your life, these items can seem cliche. Give this day of love a fresh spin with these unique gift ideas that make the most of great local options and put the emphasis on time together.
Competition between retailers is fierce to get your money this holiday season, but some are calling Amazon’s tactics unethical.
Getting married can also mean a home full of new “stuff” to enjoy once the reality of marriage sinks in. But do you want to buy local or go to a “big box” store? We’ve found a few great local shops where any couple can register for all those toaster ovens and tongs. And we also offer links to national chains in Minnesota that offer gift registries. All of the options offer online purchases, making it easy for gifts to just show up at your doorstep.
Food is a hot topic and food lovers are embracing new and unique ingredients. The problem is, where can an average person find some of these specialty ingredients? Whether you are planning a dinner party or a simple night at home, this list will help you find the right ingredients to make your meal special.
Not everyone has someone to spend Valentine’s Day with. And among singles, some of us feel sort of liberated by that.
