Kick Start Your Valentine’s Day With These Local Options!

We hope you caught your breath after the whirlwind the holidays season can be, especially when it comes to gift buying and receiving. While some still may have time to take it easy with the pocketbook, others are gearing up for the next holiday shopping spree—Valentine’s Day.

This day looks different for all couples: some enjoy a nice night in and some might look to their local retail community. We want to give you a push in the right direction to find the perfect gift, and what better way to make sure your partner gets what they want than by letting them choose with a gift card!

We’ve broken down some of our picks into a few categories for the best gift cards.


If you’re looking for something to freshen up, feel good and fight what the cold weather does to your skin, here are a few of the local businesses that offer what you’re looking for:

Honey B Soap Company

From unique and nourishing soaps to more skin, lips and face products, this local crafter has something for everyone!


Gift a visit to this recently opened facial bar, offering a variety of affordable and accessible facial services!

FACE FOUNDRIÉ opened in Fargo in November 2021, and is located right by our new office!
