STAMFORD, Conn. -- Forget the mall for Valentine's Day. Stamford has enough local businesses to keep the "love" local. Here's a sample of gifts.

  • Stamford-based CAROLEE Jewelry has a very sparkling, very red Red Hearts collection as well as a new Gemstone Gardens line. Love it: www.carolee.com ; also try Stamford's Lord & Taylor.
  • How can you not love a mother/son business, especially when part of the proceeds go toward charity? Stamford residents Stevie D'Andrea and his mom. Sandy, run Jewels For Hope where the motto is "Look Great and Donate!" Among the popular items for Valentine's Day: A Swarovski pearl necklace (seen on FOX's "Bones") and crystal charity hearts. You can even pick a particular birthstone color. Love it: www.jewelsforhope.net ; also at C&G Crystal & Collectible in Stamford.
  • Someday, the sun will come out and when it does, you'll want snazzy sunglasses. Justin Street, co-founder of Stamford-based Canvas Eyewear , allows folks to upload their own images/graphics/designs and then get one super-individualized design custom-made just for them. Love it: www.canvaseyewear.com .
  • A little bling or sophisticated bauble without breaking the bank is what you can find at online retailer Madison & Mulholland Eyewear . Reading eyewear is the company's main focus though you'll also find other sophisticated eyewear, jewelry and accessories put together by Stamford resident Jane Ubell-Meyer. Love it: www.MadisonAndMulholland.com .
