Galentine's and Valentine's - We're Fans of Both Days
Celebrate with those most important to you even if you can't see them in person.
“We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn’t matter, but work is third.” Leslie Knope, Parks & Recreation
February is thought of as the month of love. With the creation of Galentine's Day by a fictional character about a decade ago and the enduring Valentine's Day, it's a good time to celebrate those you love even if you can't see them in person this year. Jumping on a zoom call, sending a gift or even a text brings us all a little closer this month.
We've rounded up some shops where you can find gift bundles and baskets. Pick up and hand-deliver or send something to a friend, family member or significant other.
Evimero Marketplace is located along Canton Street and features fair trade and artisan gifts. Every item is handmade, ethically sourced and supports makers in the United States and around the world. Several different bundles are already curated or you can create your own custom bundle.
Find fun wine baskets at Deep Roots Wine Market & Tasting Room. They come with a bottle of wine, some snacks and a wine bag. Check out their offerings to find your perfect gift.
Valentine's and Galentine's are the perfect days to treat yourself, your friends and those you love to a special treat. How sweet it is to pick up a donut, a truffle or a cookie knowing who it's meant for (even if it's for yourself). What dessert is your love language?
Chamberlain's Chocolate Factory has every chocolate-y goodness item that you could want. You'll find truffles, chocolate covered pretzels, caramels and so much more. This year, they're offering Fondue for 2 that you can make at home. Make sure to preorder as they'll run out.
When you step into I Canita Cake, you know it's going to be good just from the scent of sweet treats. Try their delicious cookies, pie bars, and cake bites. They're offering cookie decorating kits that would be so fun for the whole family to do together.
Anyone else just love donuts? They're something that can be shared with friends and family and just a great way to treat yourselves to a little bit of sweetness. Sarah's Donuts makes a variety of delicious hand-made donuts that you need to try. You'll be so glad you did.
