Need a last-minute Valentine's Day gift? How about one with a local twist?
These three gifts are available today at Blumz by JR Designs in Ferndale, all part of the shop's 'Local Love' promotion:
Beer for My Tulips: This is a beer growler from Woodward Avenue Brewers that will have tulips duct-taped to it. Then take it to the WAB where they will fill it with beer. Offered at $24.99. This gift is "for that man or woman who doesn't necessarily want the traditional," said Blumz marketing manager Maggie Derthick.
A side of cheesecake: The shop has also partnered with Peteet's Famous Cheesecakes in Oak Park. Add a half-cheesecake to any floral order for an additional $16.99. Cheesecake flavors available at Blumz include strawberry delight, key lime, red velvet and sweet potato.
Marlee & Me: This arrangement (starting at $75) will be wrapped in a handmade scarf from Marlee’s by Tapper’s. The contemporary-style arrangement (see photo at top right) includes hydrangeas, roses and orchids.
"We just think it's really highly important to spread the love of our Michigan businesses," Derthick said of the idea for the Local Love gifts. For more information, call the shop at 248-398-5130 or visit their Facebook page.
