2月 4, 2021by Taylor Dodson0

Happy February! With the first month of the new year under our belts, it feels like we’re suddenly in the midst of another holiday season. For a short month, there sure is a lot going on!

In just over a week, Valentine’s Day will be here (preceded by Galentine’s Day on the 13th, of course). If you’re looking to celebrate but aren’t sure how to do so from the comfort of your home, look no further! Below, we’ve shared a few recommendations of our favorite local businesses that are ready to add a special touch to your holiday weekend.

Sweet treats, anyone?

From chocolate-covered fruit to personalized smash cakes, there are dozens of options when it comes to choosing a celebratory dessert. Whether you opt for a sampler of smaller goodies, like cake pops, truffles, or cocoa bombs, or go all out with a custom cake, you really can’t go wrong in exchanging love notes over a plate of yummy goodness. 

Try getting a box of frozen bananas topped with candy or nuts and a drizzle of your choosing from Lea Lana’s Bananas. Or, grab yourself an order of caramel apple nachos from The LeMay Sisters Treats, who also serve alcohol- and CBD-infused berries! 

No matter your cravings, there’s a sweets shop in town for you – guaranteed.

Embrace some flower power!

Flowers are one of the oldest gift recommendations in the book. They make for a lovely surprise no matter the time of year, but especially when it comes to holidays revolving around romance! There are plenty of flower and plant shops throughout Las Vegas, and they often sell other sweet gifts as well.

Support a family-owned business by placing an order with Flowers By Michelle. Heart-shaped succulents, colorful floral arrangements, and home goods are all available at this shop, which is powered by two passionate sisters! Or, fall in love with large teddies and preserved flowers courtesy of Lindo’s Flowers on Charleston. This shop offers roses galore, in a multitude of beautiful colors!

More cheese, please!

Charcuterie boards are a longtime favorite for at-home dates. They give you a chance to flex your creativity as you collaborate on the design of your board, and the end result tastes amazing! Putting together your own selection of meats, cheeses, fruits, and nuts from the grocery store is a great way to customize everything to your liking and have a truly DIY experience. 

On the other hand, if you’d rather leave the design work and cheese curation to the pros, you may want to reach out to one of our favorite charcuterie shops in town, like Cured & Whey. With fantastic customer service and a true dedication to their craft, Cured & Whey always provides an excellent platter of goods and truly explosive flavor combinations!

How about a drink?

Charcuterie boards tend to pair nicely with wine, but even if you aren’t interested in our previous recommendation, a nice bottle is a great way to celebrate a romantic holiday regardless. Vegas Valley Winery, the sister property of Grape Expectations in Henderson, is actually the only winery in Las Vegas. Here, tastings, winemaking courses, and a variety of events ranging from painting sessions to yoga classes are all on the menu!

Got Galentine's Day on the mind?

May we also recommend Lucy’s Waffles & Ice Cream? Waffles are a major part of the Galentine’s Day tradition, after all! You won’t believe all of the wicked combinations available, from PB&J waffles to maple-bacon extravaganzas.
