Staff Pick: Thinking Outside the Box (of Chocolates)

If you’re looking to buy a one-of-a-kind gift for your Valentine who has it all, check out Blue Morning Gallery for jewelry, original cards made by member artists and plenty of gift ideas that go beyond the standard bouquet of flowers.

While the Valentine-themed window places an emphasis on jewelry—and even though there are some masculine pieces—there are other gift options for males.

“The display window also has appropriate art by other member artists including tile art by Mark Schmitt,” said member artist Connie Wendleton. “Mark’s tile work in the gallery also includes collegiate sports themes, most suitable for sports-loving guys or gals. Also, appropriate gifts for men are the turned-wood pieces by Dick McNeil.”

Scattered throughout the entire gallery are other distinctive gift options. Special gift wrapping will also be available.

“The entire gallery displays work that would make terrific, unique gifts,” Wendleton said. “From large paintings and photographs to small pottery pieces and with prices ranging from over $100 to as low as $8, there’s something for everyone and every budget.”

As a special Valentine’s date, take your sweetheart to Blue Morning Gallery on Friday, February 8 to meet the participating jewelers, enjoy treats and let them pick out a gift (or two).
