Austin Gift Guide: Valentine's Day

Updated: Feb 2

While you’re shopping for Valentine’s Day gifts this year, don’t forget to show small businesses the love they deserve, too! Whether your gift-giving style is more traditional or unique, we’re sure you’ll find the perfect present for your special someone at one of these locally owned spots in Austin.


Whether you’re shopping for an engagement ring or a simple pendant this Valentine’s Day, be sure to pay a visit to Benold's Jewelers. For 90 years, the consultants at Benold’s have been providing excellent customer service to the Austin community, personalizing their approach to every one’s unique situation. Benold’s will stop at nothing to ensure that each of their guests never has to settle for second best, which is why they offer pieces at varying price points and financing options so you can pay your gift off at your own pace.

Chocolates + Baked Goods

Chocolate for Valentine’s Day may seem cliche, but that’s only because you haven’t been doing it right if you haven’t been getting it from Edis Chocolates + Bakery! Swap the generic heart shaped box for an assortment of locally crafted truffles customized to your partner’s flavor preferences. Choose from 40 different flavors in quantities of two, four, six, 12 and 24, or check out their other items which include baked goods and chocolate covered fruit!

Foodie Flight Passport

If your Valentine loves food as much as you love them, Jettset Local’s very own Foodie Flight Passport is the perfect gift! For only $25, passport holders can take $10 off their ticket at 25 featured restaurants that are all locally owned in the Austin area. If you think about it, gifting a Foodie Flight on Valentine’s Day is like gifting 25 date night IOUs while taking away the hassle of trying to decide where to go out to eat!

Fab Flight Passport

Nothing says “I love you” quite like giving the gift of relaxation. Similar to the Foodie Flight, our Fab Flight Passport also features 25 locally owned Austin businesses specializing in beauty, spa and fitness. For only $30, give your Valentine $2,000 worth of free and discounted services ranging from blowouts, to spray tans, to yoga classes and more!


For nearly a century, King Florist has been the city of Austin’s go-to for all things floral arrangements. Offering a number of reliable methods for order placement and same day delivery throughout Central Texas, you can rest assured that your Valentine’s Day bouquet is in excellent hands this year if you order through King Florist.

Cards + Unique Gifts

While it definitely is the words inside that count, it wouldn’t hurt to put a little extra effort into the exterior of your Valentine’s cards this year! Paper Place has been locally owned and operated by women in Austin for 40 years, over which time they have mastered the art of selecting fine paper products to stock their shelves. In addition to cards and stationary, you’ll find trinkets like journals, candles and even bath and body products that you can pick up at the same time to complete your gift!

Partner Massage

If you’re looking for an experience that doubles as a gift, Myo Massage and Movement offers two different services for couples in addition to their offerings for individuals. While the regular couples massage allows each participant to select their service and receive it in the same room as one another, the Romance Retreat takes it a step further with time allotted at the end of the massage to enjoy chocolate and wine with your loved one in the private lounge. Either way, you can’t go wrong enjoying some well-deserved relaxation time with your partner this Valentine’s Day!
