Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and whether you’re in a 5-year relationship, happily flying solo but celebrating with friends, or looking to show a potential new love interest that they’re on your mind, finding a special gift can be a challenge. Of course, there isn’t one perfect Valentine’s Day gift – it all depends on the relationship and who you’re shopping for.
From subscription boxes to local goods and Hill Country day trips, here are some ideas for the sweetheart in your life.
You really can’t go wrong with chocolate on February 14. It’s a classic gift and just about everybody loves a little something sweet now and then. Delysia Chocolatier in Austin offers specialty chocolates for all occasions with vegan, gluten-free, kosher, and nut-free options. Because everybody deserves to enjoy good chocolate.
Faith, Hope & Cupcakes is a Kyle bakery that’s sure to satisfy your sweetie’s sweet tooth with some seriously delicious cupcakes. There’s even the option of a Valentine’s DIY cupcake box, so you both can decorate and enjoy your treats together—a perfect date night in!
A floral bouquet might not be a new and revolutionary Valentine’s Day gift, but it’s a classic. Always has been, and always will be. The Kyle Flower Shop has a skilled floral design staff capable of creating the perfect arrangement for every occasion and event. Not surprisingly, this is one of the shop’s busiest times of the year and it offers a range of bouquets from classic roses to lilies, carnations, and everything in between. Looking for something a little more unique? The staff is happy to work on custom pieces that are sure to impress.
Subscription boxes are one of the fastest-growing sectors of retail with the market expected to hit $65 billion by 2027! What makes them so appealing is that there’s a box for just about every interest out there and who doesn’t like getting a mystery box of goodies in the mail?
Food boxes ranging from cheese to coffee, nuts, and even oysters are a popular favorite. There are also boxes for hobbies such as jigsaw puzzles, needlepoint, gardening, and fans of true crime novels.
Something Adventurous (or Relaxing)
If you’re looking to create some new memories with your significant other, consider opting for a weekend getaway – or even just a day trip. Kyle residents are fortunate that we’re close to some pretty fantastic places that are less than a few hours away.
Fredericksburg is a popular travel destination with several wineries, downtown boutique shopping, and historical attractions. And just a little over an hour’s drive from Kyle is Shiner – home of Shiner Beer! The pride and joy of this small Texas town, a visit, and a tour of the brewery are a must.
South of Kyle you’ll find New Braunfels. With its outdoor attractions, live music venues, and restaurants delivering local flavor, it’s easy to see why it’s a popular close-to-home weekend getaway.
Sometimes the perfect Valentine’s Day is simply a romantic evening with someone special at home. If you’d like to learn more about finding a home in Kyle, contact the Crosswinds team today.
