Good morning CLE! Happy hearts week. I have to say that Valentines Day is truly one of my favorite little holidays. It’s filled with chocolate and glitter, everything pink and pretty and whether you have a hot sweetie or an afternoon girl date planned, love is in the air all around.
I tried to find a few little special gifts/places that you might find interesting as good places to score a gift for your special person for Valentine’s Day…this Friday guys. Good luck and enjoy.
Indigo Perfumery : If your sweetie loves a pretty scent then you’ve got to stop by the lovely new perfumery on the Westside. I went by there the other day and was blown away with all of their international perfumes for sale. I tried a few on and really enjoyed a fragrance inspired by the English Actress “Tilda Swinton” called “Like This.” It wasn’t overly floral but had a twist of something different. Besides all of the amazing perfumes, they also offer candles and even make-your-own-scent workshops, all wonderful gifts for your love this Valentines Day.Lilly’s Chocolates : If your loved one has a sweet tooth then this Tremont establishment has the perfect solution for your Valentines Day gift. Lilly’s not only offers the most exquisite chocolates, don’t forget about there amazing selection of bubbly, beer & wines to go!
Urban Orchid : While I am typically a “Heinen’s flower girl”…for special occasions I can’t say enough about the creative flower masters at Urban Orchid in Hingetown. Urban Orchid creates more than just a dozen log-stemmed roses, they are so creative you’ll love what they whip up for your loved one. I’ve sent a few bouquets to friends around town and I’ve got to say not only were they stunning and unique, they were delivered on time and at a good price point. Remember, this is their busy week…get your orders in today!
Oceanne Jewelry : This lovely local jewelry artist makes the most charming pieces that will tug on the heart strings of every romantic. While she does many area shows, she also has a wonderful Etsy shop where you can explore her work and choose the perfect piece of bling for your babes.
Cleveland Clothing Company : This Cleveland-pride retailer has released a few new products for the holiday week. Check out this “Haute in Cleveland” pullover that every sassy Valentine should have. Besides apparel they also offer wine glasses, posters, tote bags and more, a great place to get some gifts for the Cleveland-lover in your life.
Gatherings Kitchen, L’Albatros & La Petite Triangle : Looking to stay in for the evening but don’t want to have the evening centered around cooking? Call the team of chef’s at Gatherings Kitchen for an exquisite to-go option. We picked this dinner up last year and it was packaged so thoughtfully not to mention totally delicious. Call today to reserve your dinner. Then there is my favorite for wine and cheese L’Albatros in University Circle. I’m not sure if they will still have reservations available, but if you are looking to impress you should try your hardest to get yourself a table for Fridays holiday. My other choice for a romantic dinner out would be La Petite Triangle in Ohio City. For a sweet or savory crepe this lovely french-infused restaurant oozes romance. Same goes for them, not sure about reservation availability I would call right away!
Just a few recommendations for the happy hearts day holiday. Whatever you do or whatever small gesture of love and affection you plan to give your sweetie, the simple words of “Happy Valentines Day” will melt any heart. Happy Monday everyone hope your week is wonderful.
