Valentines day 2015 is around the corner, and I can’t say how happy I am that everything is set for next weekend.
- gifts bought
- cookies baked
- flowers ordered
- table booked
- cards written
Well, the last point goes for private ones, as I have to write a few more for customers and maybe some more at the Loveletters Event on Friday (here).
Why does that come so easy? It took me more than ten years to find trusted stores and locations for such yearly events. Every now and then one is exchanged by a new fav, but I try to have a backup-address for everything. To be honest two or three, otherwise I wouldn’t write a blogpost at the moment, but going nuts.
So here comes my small ‚give a little Love with small thoughtful gifts‘ list:
As for chocolate I recommend Xocolat in the 1st district or their brand-new dependance in Hietzing (corner Lainzerstrasse/Altgasse) and their handmade chocolate bars made in Vienna. I had one with Maldon Sea Salt for Christmas. Heavenly!
My trusted high-end pastry maker since 20 years: Gerstner, who has a new store too: the Gerstner Beletage. You can enjoy a wonderful afternoon there with coffee, cake and gift-shopping under one roof. (previous buys: here)
If you like it more homemade style, then you should visit Karin Mayers little Cake Store ‚Die Süsse‚ (Phorusgasse 8). She offers some cute little gifts aside the amazing, fluffy Orange-Cupcakes, just to mention one sweet highlight.
For flowers: I am a ‚just pure roses – that’s all junkie‘, and for that matter I am lucky to get them as a present. You won’t regret to visit ‚Wilde Rose‘ (13, St.Veitgasse – U4 station: Unter St.Veit).
And don’t forget: Write more Love Letters, or even a little love note. It will be very much appreciated! And who knows maybe we are gifted with a romantic sunset too … Have a wonderful Valentines Weekend!
