If you're ever looking for a cutting board shaped like the state of Minnesota, I Like You is your place. The colorful gift shop in northeast Minneapolis selling "small things for a prettier life" is a trove of locally made goods. The astroturf carpet creates a fun place for kids to play while parents shop for unique kitchenware, jewelry, and a collection of Minnesota-to-the-core T-shirts that say things like "It's nice to be nice." The shop is owned by friendly locals Sarah Sweet and Angela Lessman, whose tattooed arms and quirky style fit right in with the eclectic mix of goods they sell. Everything in the store is chosen to appeal to our Twin Cities audience, making I Like You the perfect place to find a gift for your mom, dad, girlfriend, or even your grandmother. We'd be remiss if we did not mention the greeting card collection, which is worthy of a best-of category in itself. The cards are hilarious and selected to make even the most emotion-averse Minnesotan feel warm and fuzzy inside.
