Three MN-made V-Day gifts so you don't have to be thoughtful

Even though it's sort of weird to obsess over what to buy another man's lady, we did just that, and found three local gifts for your girl that say "I'm a great guy, I care about you, and I'm so secure with our relationship that I'm not even intimidated by Thrillist apparently knowing you so well"

Ride Pretty Print @ Big Table Studio While a poster isn't technically the most "romantic" thing, telling your girl she's pretty is, so why not supplement the weighty diamond necklace you got her with this 18x24in poster by Mpls artist Zara Gonzalez Hoang, available at St. Paul print palace Big Table Studio. $25; 375 Wabasha St N; St. Paul; 651.222.6428; BigTableStudio.com
Emily Ruth Terrarium @ Forage Modern Workshop These terrariums are to flowers what Batman Begins is to Batman Forever: updated, cooler, less Kilmer-y. So stop into Longfellow's sweet home furnishings shop Forage and grab one, which Minneapolitan Emily Ruth has lovingly seeded with green moss, naturally colored sand, and "other earthly objets d'interet". $45-$55; 4023 E Lake St; 612.886.3603; ForageModernWorkshop.com
I Heart MN Necklace @ Patina These little charm necklaces are hand-crafted by MN jewelry maker Penny Larsen outta recycled sterling silver. And there're hearts on them so they're mad romantic or whatever. $56; various Metro locations; PatinaStores.com
