With Valentine's Day just around the corner, you may be looking for a gift to give your special someone.
While Dandelions and Birch Flower Shop offer bouquets aplenty, and the Boston Cheese Cellar and Tony's Market both have a wide array of fine chocolates, Roslindale also has plenty of nontraditional gift options for your sweetheart.
The Thrift Shop of Boston: give your someone a unique gift that shows how thoughtful you are. Check out the vintage book section for a weathered copy of a personal favorite. Find the perfect vase for the traditional bouquet. Pick up a pair of ice skates for a romantic date. Or browse the aisles of the shop, looking for that perfect item.
Redgine's Botanical Spirits: if your loved one needs a little pampering, stop by Redgine's for a prepackaged gift basket, or put together your own. From chocolate themed skincare to relaxing herbal teas, Redgine's has plenty of gift items if your someone needs a little TLC. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
