This Valentine's Day, show her you're (literally) nuts about her with necklaces from Turtle Love Co.

I’m constantly on the hunt for great local gifts to give when a holiday approaches. When we think about Valentine’s Day, roses, chocolate and a cheesy floral card are the obvious choices. But when I think of Valentine’s Day, I’d rather receive a nice piece of jewelry over a teddy bear. Who’s with me?!

Maine-based jewelry company Turtle Love Co. has a new collection just in time for V-Day called the “I’m Nuts About You” necklaces. Choose from a Bronze Peanut Necklace, Silver Pistachio Necklace or Silver Almond Necklace, for just $60-$62 each. And they’ll even wrap it for you, free of charge. The necklaces are crafted exclusively for TLC, cast from real nuts on sterling silver chains.

And just think of the pun possibilities for these gifts: I’m Nuts About You, You’re the Peanut to my Butter, You Drive Me Nuts, You Crack Me Up, You Understand My Inner Nu, Let’s Tie The Nut (okay, that one is a stretch)…but let’s keep them coming.
