This February 14th, treat your Valentine to a classic gift that celebrates the joy, passion, and inspiration our most precious relationships bring. You really can’t go wrong by gifting decadent chocolate, high-end spirits, or delightful bubbles. Here are the best Boulder shops for each of these Valentine’s Day classics.
Piece, Love, and Chocolate
Located on West Pearl, Piece, Love, and Chocolate has been supplying Boulder’s chocoholics with decadent delights for years. Known for its rich truffles, this shop creates variety boxes of all its most popular flavors. It even has a vegan/dairy free gift box option so everyone can enjoy these hand-crafted sweets.
This Boulder chocolate shop markets itself as bean-to-bar and invites customers to visit its factory to purchase thoughtfully-crafted chocolates. A husband and wife team lead this lovely business with intentionality, creating a more ethical way to produce and consume chocolate. Moksha ensures more profits are put back into the hands of cacao farmers. In fact, Moksha pays its farmers 50% over the market price of cacao. You’re not just getting awesome, organic chocolate, but you’re investing in the future of regenerative farmers, a conscious Boulder business, and the planet, as well.
Boulder Wine Merchant
Boulder Wine Merchant stands apart because it’s run by Master Sommelier, Brett Zimmerman. The shop houses special wines difficult to find anywhere else, and welcomes those with minimal wine knowledge to explore its aisles, chat with the staff, and leave with something delightful. Boulder Wine Merchant is a fantastic spot for crisp Champagne or for those wanting to try dry, sparkling wine from a different region.
