I know it's kind of early to be thinking about this, but it certainly can't hurt to mention it: Valentine's Day is about four weeks away. Do you know what you're getting your woman?
Yes, I know — you're probably going to wait until the last minute to pick up a bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolates. But let me tell you, a box of chocolates is a bad idea, especially if she made a new year's resolution to lose some pounds. And the flowers will die.
Be a little more unique than that, OK? And here's my suggestion: Head over to the Jewelry Artists of Charlotte pop-up shop in Ballantyne Village, which features original creations by more than 20 local jewelry and accessories artists, such as the one pictured below.
You're really lucky that the pop-up shop is still around, you know? Originally, the shop, presented by I.C. London, was going to close after the holidays, but, because of its success, is going to stick around until Feb. 27 (hours being Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.).
So when Valentine's Day comes around, your gift better be pretty awesome. After all, I gave you more than enough of notice to be thinking about it.
A woman who hopes her man is reading this.
