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. While the shop is taking a short winter break until January 30, make sure to order as soon as they’re back in action to get your gift in time.

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.

Bold Version

Show your beau that you really listen and gift them a poster of a local site they adore. Designer Victor Coreas offers posters featuring destinations like Breakneck Ridge, the Walkway Over the Hudson, Storm King Mountain, Lake Minnewaska, Overlook Mountain, Bear Mountain, Hunter Mountain, and the Gunks on his Etsy site. The designs are simple, yet evocative, making them the perfect addition to any room in your Hudson Valley home. Check out Coreas’ website for more regionally inspired designs.

Hudson Valley By Jackie

Top Pick: Hiking Journal

For the partner whose heart beats for the Hudson Valley, look no further than this hiking journal.

Pine and Poem Custom

Location: Red Hook
Top Pick: Personalized Family Print
Price: $24+

For the OTP that just welcomed a new addition, this too-cute family print is a sweet way to celebrate the occasion. Show your sweetie how over-the-moon you are about the happy family announcement with a personalized footprint work that you can cherish forever. Prints can be customized by footprint, font color and style, and child’s name and date of birth, so feel free to swap out the Valentine’s Day colors for something that suits your style (or your nursery colors).

Cheyenne Mallo Pottery

Location: Olivebridge
Top Pick: Lake Awosting Cereal Bowl

Price: $48

Cheyenne Mallo’s work combines two things we love: pottery and the Hudson Valley. Her mugs, spoon rests, candle holders, and trays bear the topographical maps of areas in our region, making for visually stunning, Valley-inspired wares. We love the Lake Awosting Cereal Bowl, but if you’re willing to spend a little extra for your Valentine’s Day gift, take a look at Mallo’s mugs ($54) with Catskills-inspired designs.

Scripted Fragrance

Location: Warwick
Top Pick: February Birth Month Flower’s Scripted Story
Price: $24

This Orange County Etsy maker crafts soy wax candles with hemp wicks. Each fragrance is made with real ingredients and essential oils. The birth month collection captures the essence of unique flowers, and February’s edition celebrates the delicate primrose. If you’re looking for something less seasonal for a Valentine’s Day gift, try the brand’s ode to the Hudson Valley.
