It’s just over two weeks to Valentine’s Day (aka: Galentine’s Day, Palentine’s Day, Meowlentine’s Day, whatever you prefer). And if you don’t already have plans or reservations somewhere with candles and roses, or if that’s just not really your scene, we’ve lined up some of the BEST events that are happening this year mid-February.

Basically, when it comes to love (and chocolate) we’ve got you covered.

Here is your Valentine’s Day Guide to greeting cards, gifts, treats, stays, and fun this February. And don’t worry, we’ve included some Anti and Alt-Valentine’s delights as well – just look for the ♥︎ or the 💔 .

See and Do

For Everyone

For Grownups

For Kids


Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to get out of the house and take a staycation at one of these North Shore hotels, whether with some humans that you love or even just to treat yourself!

Gifts and Treats

Wine, Chocolate, Tasty bites, Trinkets, Thoughtful Gifts, and Sweet Notes are a surefire way to beat the winter blues. And they can be romantic too, or just for you!



Sparkle and Shine
