Just in time for Valentine’s Day in the region, shop these crowd-pleasing products from local Etsy vendors that all ring in under $30.

Wishbone Letterpress

Location: Kingston
Top Pick: Love Note for my Dream Boat
Price: $6

Whether supplementing another Valentine’s Day gift or simply telling someone you’re thinking of them, Wishbone’s giant selection of hilarious cards — along with those of a naughtier variety — are guaranteed to make the subject of your affection fall in love.

All cards are lovingly printed by hand on antique printing presses in Kingston, and the power couple making them may even inspire you to get a little more creative with your Valentine’s plans this year.

Feed Your Face

Location: New Paltz
Top Pick: Vegan Organic Hawaiian Red Sea Salt Caramels
Price: $14

If your sweetie has a sweet tooth, treat them to a box of locally made vegan caramels. These pink-crusted ones hit the spot with a dreamy balance of sweet and salty.

Not only are all the caramels dairy-free, gluten-free, corn syrup-free, and virtually soy-free, but they are all wrapped with yarn made by a fair-trade women’s cooperative in Nepal. In other words, it’s totally OK to pick up a secret stash for yourself as well.
