Best Boutiques for Your Valentine’s Day Shopping
February 5, 2019
Your Hyattsville apartments are nestled between unique shops and creative studios.
Great gifts are sincere, well-suited, and totally unique. Show your partner how much you care and support the small businesses around your Hyattsville apartments at the same time by buying your Valentine’s gift at one of these shops.
Petals Ribbons and Beyond is just north of downtown Hyattsville. With a huge variety of flower types, colors, and arrangements (plus their eponymous ribbon decorations) this shop is a catch-all for your flower needs. For a Valentine’s event, or to make an even bigger impression, consider Flowers by Ellen. It’s owned by veterans of the floral industry, with decade of experience.
You already know about Fleisher Jewelry, an exquisite handler of gold, silver, and gems, but you may also want to explore Grand Jewelers at the Mall at Prince George’s. Grand Jewelers represents a collection of two small shops that each have their own distinct style. You’ll find Pandora, which is releasing a brand-new line of heart shaped accessories for the occasion, and ALEX and ANI, which has a younger, more bohemian vibe.
Harper Macaw is the quintessential indie chocolate operation. They have dozens of chocolate bars with traditional flavors and clever combinations alike: coffee, bourbon, and bordeaux as well as butter toffee and sea salt, and earl grey and dark chocolate. Their primary mission is mouth-watering chocolate, but you can smile a little wider knowing that part of their proceeds go to rainforest conservation. Second, consider Chocotenango. Chocotenango’s claim to fame is its bean-to-bar operation that’s totally local. They’ve placed in every International Chocolate Awards since 2016. And each headline bar has its own name like Maya, El Puro, and Zanzibar.
Experience Love Together
Classes, tours, and other experiences-as-gifts are becoming more and more popular. Why not extend this trend to Valentine’s Day and experience love together? Sign up for art classes at the Pyramid Atlantic Art Center or Art Works Now. Take a challenging yoga class at Love Yoga to spark the fire. Or go on a snowy stroll at Bladensburg Waterfront Park.
Maybe your partner is a fine jewelry admirer or a passionate painter. Maybe they’ll appreciate a box of sweets for the local chocolatier, or prefer a bouquet of roses. Whatever makes them smile, you’ll find it nearby. That’s why residents love living at ROSS’ downtown Hyattsville apartments. Take a tour today and experience true convenience anew.
