Chocolate and sweet treats, Nevada City, Ca

EarthSong Flowers, Nevada City Florist

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, have you thought about how you’re going to celebrate?  There are so many great things to do, see, eat and buy for your loved one locally.

For the sweet tooth, you can buy DeGroot truffles from Nevada City Truffle Shop, chocolate covered strawberries from Nevada City Chocolate Shoppe, ice cream from Treats, a bar of Cello Chocolate, a cupcake from Emily’s Catering Pop Up Bakery, a s’mores kit from the Inn Town Campground or something sweet from Lazy Dog Chocolateria.

If you’re looking for flowers stop by the Nevada City Florists EarthSong Flowers, located next door to Fudenjuce.

There are some great local shopping options in Nevada City from My Favorite Things, Neva CoKitkitdizzi, J.J. Jackson’s, Gray Goose, Abstrakt, Judi’s or Nevada City Crystal & Glass.   Downtown Grass Valley offers gift options in Mint, Cult of Gemini and Yuba Blue.  Or perhaps you want to get creative and make your sweetheart something special at The Artist Workshop or Junk in the Trunk.

If you’re thinking about eating out there are lots of great options in downtown Nevada City, grab a bite to eat and then maybe have a drink at The Golden Era and listen to Chris Crocket perform.

Although I do love the gift that keeps on giving; whether it’s a local wine club membership, a CSA to a farm, the Ol Republic Growler Club.  Or maybe you want to give someone an experiential gift; a guided fishing lesson, an art class, a ticket to a local concert, Chef’s Dinner at Tess’ Kitchen.  Maybe this Valentine’s Day you want to book a trip for a future adventure (like a room at the Inn or a campsite at the Inn Town Campground).

And now the giveaways, why not share the love and have 5 different prizes?  Post a comment for your to chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Earth Song Flowers, a $20 gift certificate to Cult of Gemini, a $10 gift certificate to Yuba Blue, a $10 gift certificate to Treats or a bag of Valentine’s Day coffee from Carolines Coffee.  Winners will be announced on Tuesday, February 14th.  *Edited to say the winners are….   EarthSong Flowers: Deanna Wagner, Cult of Gemini: Amanda Gray,  Yuba Blue: Kelly Santos, Carolines Coffee: Donna Cobb and Treats: Jenn.

    This blog is so helpful! I’ve been wanting chocolate covered strawberries, but didn’t know where to get them. I’m going to be making a trip to town now that I know where to go!

    We are going out to New Moon Cafe for our Valentine’s Day date… but our secret is to go out a day or two after to avoid the crowds.

    Thanks for the tips around town, and as an AmeriCorps volunteer it’s hard to make these fabulous and tasty treats work in my budget. This year, some other SNAP volunteers are getting together for a wine and movie Galentines night 🙂 Local chocolate and wine included!
