Julie Mader’s Colorways Collection directly transcribes her time spent exploring the Pennsylvania Wilds.

Give your sweetheart a wearable piece of artwork, made with the inspiration of nature! Colorway options currently available are canopy, chicory, milkweed, red maple and local honey.
.2 oz Maple Sap Sucker

Hand Stamped Copper Hot Air Balloon Adventure Pendant Hammer Texture
Let's go on an adventure! The cut blank is hammer textured, stamped, filed, sanded, ground, tumbled, buffed, oxidized and then sealed with renaissance wax. These playful hot air balloon pendants are a wonderful accessory for everyday wear. Where will love - the adventure of a lifetime - take you?
Pennsylvania Wilds Outdoor Discovery Atlas
Speaking of adventure, why not plan out a trip in the PA Wilds with your loved one? A Pennsylvania Wilds Outdoor Discovery Atlas can be the inspiration you need to visit somewhere new… or an old favorite. The atlas provides travel tips and planning resources, ideas on things to see and do throughout the region, and navigable maps.
Beeman's Beard Care Kit
Valentine’s Day is for men too! Don’t forget about that special guy, and treat him to a pampering kit for his facial hair. This kit includes everything he’ll need to style his facial hair, with beard balm, oil, wax, and special wooden comb, all in a neat gift box. With vetiver, rosemary, and lime essential oils, these products have a manly yet not overpowering smell. Beeswax, the not-so-secret ingredient, keeps things natural and local, produced at Rich Valley Apiary.
Small Town Night Club Shirt
Would your sweetheart rather head out to the woods instead of a crowded nightclub? For many nature lovers, a campfire under the stars is one of the most romantic places to be. Show your loved one how well you know them with this gift… and promise them a night under the stars to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
Pink Heart Pendant
This pink heart pendant is as sparkling and eye-catching as your loved one! Josh Smith from Valley Glass Art creates these unique pieces in the PA Wilds, using borosilicate glass to make jewelry that is both durable and truly one-of-a-kind. Give that special someone “your heart” this Valentine’s Day!
Make sure your lips are perfectly kissable for your special someone with this soothing lip balm. Rhianna Speck from Side Door Soaps makes sure that every ingredient is something that she would feel comfortable with her own family (and their sensitive skin) using. These lip balms are available in flavors like Creamsicle, Black Java, Peppermint and Mint-O.
Ruby-throated Hummingbird Jabebo Earrings
Is your loved one really into nature? Maybe they’re an environment educator, scientist or just an outdoor enthusiast? These Jabebo earrings are unique in several ways! For one, they are made using recycled cereal boxes. In fact, on the reverse side of the product, you can even see the cereal box that was used in the making of the earrings. However, the artwork itself is also eye-catching. Although the earrings go together, the images are mismatched, sparking curiosity and interesting conversations.
PA Wilds Grocery Tote
Instead of wrapping your present in paper or a bag that will later be thrown away, why not opt for a reusable tote instead? The bag itself can be a gift that can be enjoyed later, and you can still fill it with some special Valentine’s Day treats for your loved one.
