Five Valentine's Day Gifts at The Store that Will Leave Your Loved One Feeling Oh So Special

by Skye Lucking | January 28, 2020

Avoid the last-minute rush and the fate of a ho-hum gift for your significant other. Instead, show your special someone how uniquely loved they are with hand-crafted gifts by Arizona artisans. The Store, an artists cooperative gallery at Mesa Arts Center offers a dynamic variety of options for one-of-a-kind gifting. 

Check out an impressive collection of jewelry from artists that range in styles from funky and colorful geometry of Kyllan Maney to the expertly inlaid mother-of-pearl pieces by John Finkey, and the rich and bold textures of Beth Benowhich.  

How about wearable art? The light and airy Habotaii silk kimono jacket, delicately hand painted by artist Marsha Blumm, is one perfect size for all. To add a splash of elegance, try the Italian Fiber scarves by artist Evelyn Gholson.  

Is your heart an open book? Artist Ann Upham’s collection of patterned books cut so their pages create words or imagery are beautiful and unique. For the maker in your life, The Store also offers a DIY mini-version of a heart pattern. 

Need a place to store jewelry? Try the handmade boxes by artist John Eugster, who has been working with wood for most of his life.  

Don't forget the card! Forget the grocery store cards--get a beautiful mini-art piece in The Store. Find a wide variety of options and choose the one that would appeal most to your sweetie.
