Romantic Gestures – A Thoughtful Gift for Any Valentine (and any Budget)

If you’re looking to dial up the romance to ensure Valentine’s Day has a bit more fanfare this year, these local artisans and merchants serving the Heart of Bellevue community are as savvy as Cupid’s arrow and can swiftly guide you in the right direction. Splurge or shop thrifty, there are swoon-worthy gifts abound that make a statement!!


Whether exotic blossoms or velvet roses by the dozen are up your alley, these florists have plenty of tasteful bouquets to shower your partner, friend or relatives with affection! Check with each vendor for details on contactless delivery options and mobile orders. For extra suave points, grab a greeting card from Paper Source with the perfect sentiment, from silly and simple to full-blown ballad.

PS: is your love not the flowers type? Consider a glassybaby votive - each one is handmade and entirely unique, it's a perfect (and reusable) way to gift a bit of color.


From pendants to pearls, these exceptional jewelers have all your accessory decisions covered. Seasoned design associates are standing by to field all your questions, from popping that infamous one, to custom engraving queries and other specially tailored details suited to your specific size, wallet and occasion.


Last but certainly not least, no Valentine’s Day celebration could ever be complete without the literal icing on the cake – scrumptious desserts! Choose from bold, cosmopolitan flavors inspired by confections from around the globe, to the reigning champions of the season – chocolate, in every variety imaginable. ·

Added Bonus: Plan a Staycation Downtown

Commit to total rest and relaxation with an exclusive holiday weekend package at one of three hotels in the downtown core: Hyatt Regency Bellevue, The Westin Bellevue, and W Bellevue. Plan your sweet escape for the weekend and delight in extra perks like a $100 Bellevue Collection gift card (per nightly visit) and a bottle of bubbly, stemless flutes – plus espresso for two at Dote Coffee Bar for the morning! Plus, consider the Hilton Bellevue's Valentine's Day package, complete with an in-room dinner and wine special.
