Valentine’s Day gets a bad rap for being a Hallmark-created holiday or a day to grab a lame Whitman Sampler from CVS, but for many it’s the perfect time to show off their creativity in honor of a loved one.
Many Portsmouth artists also create unique gifts this time of year. Many of these artistic items are available to purchase on Web sites such as Etsy.com.
Featured in the photo gallery above and listed below are a few Valentine's Day gift ideas found this year on Etsy.
