Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and we’ve got some great local ideas and a fabulous giveaway for one lucky individual. Karin, at The Magickal Florist has offered up one dozen red roses, the Valentine’s Day Classic Bouquet, to one lucky commenter (read terms and conditions below).
What does your sweetie want? Chocolate covered strawberries from The Chocolate Shoppe? Neva Co Artisan Boutique has a great range of locally made handmade goodies, perhaps pick up some Sierra Sweets Chunky Toffee, handmade “Flying Heart” felted broach or wooden “my valentine” plaque.
Not that one needs Valentine’s Day as an excuse to eat chocolate, but if you were looking for a little help justifying some truffles, stop by The Truffle Shop. The special heart shaped box of a dozen DeGroot mini truffles is sure to be well received. If you’re looking for a vegan alternative, stop by Treats and check out their truffles (or ice cream, but it’s a bit harder to wrap up a delicious bowl of salted carmel gelato).
Downtown Nevada City has so many gift ideas, photos above including Valentine’s Day ideas from Maiden Lane, Kitkitdizzi, Abstrakt and La Cache Jewelry. So whether your sweetie wants a Brighton pen, Organic Cotton tote, Hobnail Candle or a piece of jewelry, Nevada City has something for everyone.
J.J. Jackson’s has an entire wall dedicated to Valentine’s Day cards, although I’m rather fond of the heart rocks. Maybe you’re looking for something a bit more fun, check out The Chocolate Shoppe candy treats.
And if you think your Valentine would rather have a little pampering, send him or her down to Bel Capelli Salon and Spa.
I decided to add to the giveaway and in addition to the flowers I’ve got box of Indian Springs Wines infused chocolates, a homemade card by Erin and a special Valentine’s Day wine label and coupon for 15% off a bottle of wine from Indian Springs Wines*. Please post a comment on this blog post about your favorite Valentine’s Day treat, is it a card, chocolate, flowers or something else? I will draw the winner on Tuesday, February 12th. If you don’t have a sweetie to give the roses to, Karin and I both think that you can always give the roses to yourself, just remember they must be picked up on or before Valentine’s Day.
