Let a Chef Do the Cooking

Staying in on Valentine’s Day? Cuddle up together and let someone else do the cooking. Whether surf or turf, salty or sweet, you’ll find unforgettable menus when you order takeout or delivery from Connecticut restaurants.

Bring in Special Treats

Pick up chocolate covered popcorn and potato chips from Chocolate Shell in Old Lyme, festive Valentine's Day chocolates from Bridgewater Chocolates in Brookfield and West Hartford, vegan truffles and cheeses from Divine Treasures in Manchester, charcuterie plates from Avon Prime Meats.

Go Crazy with Unique Sweets

Pick up photo-worthy sweets from Donut Crazy or any of these Instagrammable dessert spots or bakeries. Or custom engrave a romantic message on chocolates from Noteworthy Chocolates in Bethel. For an extra chocolate fix, take home something oh so sweet from any spot on the Connecticut Chocolate Trail.

Serve Love Potion Libations

Want to add some extra flair to your evening? Try these take-home libations from local wineries, breweries & distilleries. Or if you’re cutting back on the alcohol this year, try these fun drinks for when you’re not drinking.

Enjoy At-Home Activities

Turn your home into a spa date for two with products from local shops. Order Greek island-inspired soaps, bath bombs, and scrubs from Manos, or do a couples’ face mask complete with a spa-style mask mixing bowl from Isankofa.
