Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Love of all kinds are in the air here in Downtown Frederick. We’ve located some shops around downtown that will help you find that perfect gift, in addition to restaurants for your perfect date night!
First, take your partner out for some shopping! For your friend that loves glitz, stop by shops like Frederick Coin Exchange (offering 14% off jewelry purchase) or Time Bomb Tattoos (offering 20% off solid gold and organic body jewelry). Colonial Jewelers also has some amazing jewelry in romantic styles, and Ec’clectibles just received matching “his and hers” tied bracelets, perfect for new lovebirds.
Do you know someone who loves to look good? Help them start off February right by visiting Skin Care Pro Group because they’re offering a 60 Minute Custom Facial Gift Card for $60 until V-Day. Maven Beauty Bar and Indelli•Belle are also offering some great deals on lash extensions. Plus, get a free box of chocolates with a $50 gift card purchase at Artisinal Hair Company ($15 blow-outs and styles all month long, too).
A girl can’t have too many clothes, right? Three downtown businesses would love to help you find a cute outfit for a Valentine’s date night. Stop by Pearl to get 25% off a piece of clothing from their spring collection, or hop over to Alicia L for 25% Off All Kendra Scott, Shelia Fajl Earrings, and silk scarves. Additionally, Velvet Lounge will be hosting a Bend in the River Farm floral pop-up on 02/13 and 02/14, plus 40% off one regular priced item from 2/14 until 2/17.
Is your partner what we call a “foodie?” Lebherz Oil & Vinegar Emporium has made some Valentine’s Day Olive Oil & Vinegar Samplers for your favorite sweetheart! This is the perfect gift for your foodie partner because it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Someone who already has everything can be the hardest people to shop for this Valentine’s Day. Businesses like Curious Iguana and Savage Soaps make giving so much easier. Swing by Curious Iguana to pick up a Blind Date with a Book! Different books are wrapped in paper, so you’ll never know what you’ll get. No Peeking! After your long day of walking downtown, you might want to swing by Savage Soaps before heading out to pick up a Curated Valentine Gift Box Set, so you won’t be smelly for dinner.
You can never go wrong with the classic Valentine’s gift of nature’s own creation – flowers! On the 13th and 14th of February stop by the Velvet Lounge to experience their Bend in the River Farm floral popup, or beat the rush and surprise your love a day early by heading to FAV Flowers! Just mention that you saw this promotion and receive 10% off your purchase and take home a bouquet on February 13th.
After all that shopping, you and your partner are going to need something to eat! Luckily, Downtown Frederick businesses have some great Valentine’s Day specials that you won’t want to miss.
Serenity Tea Room on W Patrick St is offering both a 5 course and an 8 course meal on Valentine’s Day. We guarantee you’ll be stuffed afterward, but in case you aren’t, VINI CULTURE is offering some great refreshments. Stop by for 2 Draft Beers + Pub Pretzel w/house made beer cheese for dipping ($15), 2 Evolucio Late Harvest Dessert Wine + One Dessert to share ($20), or, my personal favorite, a Bottle of Sparkling Cava or Malbec + Baked Brie ($30).
If you really want to impress your date, make your reservations now at VOLT and be prepared to indulge yourself and a loved one with an exclusive tasting of 10 courses of culinary delights prepared by Chef Bryan Voltaggio. Call VOLT at (301) 696-8658 for further information.
If you’ll be around during the week, be sure to swing by Hippy Chick Hummus. The week of Valentine’s Day, they’ll be offering Dark Chocolate Coconut Hummus, Kombucha with strawberries for two, and a lunch special hippy chick “tasting” menu for two. Delicious!
If you’ll be around after Valentine’s Day, also stop and check out The Muse. They have fun craft nights every month, so even if February’s has already passed, it’ll give you another great reason to come back and visit.
Pedego Frederick is offering 10% off a Gift Card for your Valentine that can be used towards bikes & accessories, tours & rentals, in case the weather on V-Day won’t be warm enough. Frederick’s Visitor Center also has some cool, Frederick and Maryland merchandise for those loved ones far away besides their awesome interactions for families coming to visit!
These are just a few ideas in Downtown Frederick, and there are tons more! However you choose to celebrate Valentine’s Day, be sure to spread the love near and far. Happy Valentine’s Day from Downtown Frederick!
