Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Text

There are countless ways to say “I love you” and show someone that you fancy them. You can proclaim it in song, say it, wistfully, in a love poem, or (our personal fav) you can plan a surprise date to the museum, connect with one another and the artwork in the galleries, and grab a few enticing sips and snacks on the rooftop bar. 

We’re here to present a few other ways to tell someone you love them. (And that special someone could be you).

The items we selected from the MCA Denver shop are from local vendors that make their products with love, and we think that—if you’re going to gift someone something—there’s no better choice than to pick out an item from a maker near you.
