There are many ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day, whether you’re shopping for a significant other, child, galentine or someone else you love.

Many of our local stores have things to enjoy this weekend!

How about ordering flowers from Karin’s Florist or some food from Bobby’s Bagel Café in Oakton? They have heart-shaped everything bagels, but require notice for ordering.

You can also find more sweets at Cocoa Vienna or Cameron’s Coffee & Chocolates, a local nonprofit that employs young adults with special needs. They have a large shop to order from, but you can also find some of their products at Vienna Vintner. Because chocolate and wine — why not? Maybe you even add a trip to Mesmeralda’s Gifts in McLean, The Artisans or Craving for Chocolate.

My husband and I usually give a stuffed animal or book to our kids on Valentine’s Day, which means a trip to Bards Alley this week.

Looking for something a little more intimate? Don’t forget about Trousseau in town. Maybe some new-to-you jewelry at Just Like New?

Vienna and McLean are filled with local little shops to support. Remember to shop small and support local.

Hoping you have a great Valentine’s Day!
