Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? The sweetest holiday of the year is only just a week away.

We know our readers might be in need of some lovely inspiration in the form of locally made goods. So, we’ve curated a few Michigan made items we think will help inspire your holiday next week. Below are some ideas for your holiday.

Enjoy and remember to share with us if you’re shopping local. We love to support Michigan made goods.

BonBonBonMade in Hamtramck, Bon Bon Bon’s chocolates are certainly a work of art. Their team of internationally trained confiseurs use classic French techniques to make a variety of lovely chocolates. The flavors come in all sorts of creations. For Valentine’s Day, you can find a variety all in it’s own.

BustedIt’s quite often we hear that the city of Detroit was missing basic retail clothing. This has been an opportunity for entrepreneurs to start new businesses. Busted is one of these company’s, formed out of the basic need for underwear. The retail shop has a variety of lovely choices for those looking to spice up their gift this year.

A Baker’s TaleBaked in Ann Arbor, and sold online or in their store in Birmingham, this company blends fairytale magic with their sweets. Known for large cookies, their gourmet products are also made with all-natural ingredients. Check out their Valentine’s Day specials here.

Valentine VodkaValentine’s Distillery in Ferndale, one of Michigan’s largest craft distilleries, is clearly a go to drink choice for this holiday. The distillery has been winning numerous awards for their different Vodka’s, Gin’s, and Whiskey’s. The company is growing, announcing this week a new distribution to 67 Applebee’s stores across Michigan.

Traverse City Cherry Wines. We all know that some of Michigan’s best made wine hails from the west side of the state, especially Traverse City. The cherry wines offered by some of these makers are sweet and made from home grown cherries. The Grand Traverse Chateau Cherry Wine is one of the most popular ones, making a great gift for Valentine’s Day.

What other locally made gifts could you see doing well this holiday?
