While you can never go wrong with a last minute dozen red roses from the one of the white tents setup around the neighborhood markets, there is something about adding a one of a kind box of decadent sweets and a handwritten card that makes the Valentines Day extra special. You can pick up a pretty pink box of Godiva, order some M&Ms with a custom love message or visit one of these local spots for some utterly delicious goodies that will wow your sweetheart…. and you are supporting local businesses in and around the Dallas area!

Looking for some Rose, Lavender, Red velvet or Strawberry cheesecake macs, Chelles got your covered. If you didn’t know.. French macaron (with one ‘o’ not two) is an almond meringue cookie filled with different flavors. They are made from almond meal, so they are gluten free… While you pick up a dozen of these beauties from their craft kitchen, make sure to try their chocolate covered Oreo – it is addicting.

This is a local all time favorite for desserts like Tiramisu, Black forest or Oreo cake inside Suburbia. They have amazing baked goodies- almond croissants that are flaky and filled with almond cream that is not too sweet, just perfect. You can find Asian options like red bean cakes as well. They also have a good selection of French macarons, no fancy packaging but they taste awesome.

This specialty pie shop in Bishop Arts District serves up handmade pies that changes with the season, we think their Doctor Love which is a red velvet chess pie with the texture of a brownie and flavor of velvet cream cheese will take you Love up a few notches. One can never go wrong with the Classics like Lord of the Pie- a deep dish apple pie or The Drunken Nut- an elevated version of a classic Texas pecan pie loaded with pecans, bourbon, brown sugar, and butter.
