Downtown Lubbock Gift Guide: Valentine’s Day
Downtown LBK • February 1, 2023
We’ve all felt it before. You know what we’re talking about. The insurmountable pressure that comes with gift-giving–especially on a day dedicated to expressing your love for a special person in your life. Luckily–and we’ve said this before–Downtown Lubbock has it all. No matter what kinds of gifts your partner or loved one enjoys receiving, these local DLBK spots are here to save the day and ensure you have a romantic Valentine’s Day.
1308 Broadway St.
If your Valentine has a sweet tooth, Sweet Creations is the place for you. From cookies and cupcakes to pies and custom cakes, Marsha at Sweet Creations does it all. You can order ahead of time, so you can personalize a sugary gift for your loved one or stop by on Valentine’s from 9 am- 2 pm. P.S. Marsha also does breakfast sandwiches that we think are to-die-for… for all the other days of the year.
1106 Ave. J
If your partner enjoys a classic bouquet of flowers for V-day, Tucker Floral is a must-visit. Self-described as a studio that transforms “the mundane into shamefully beautiful floral art,” you’re sure to win a few brownie points with this one. Order ahead of time to help create a stunning arrangement that features your loved ones’ favorite flowers and colors. Choose from different sizes of arrangements and vases to create the perfect gift. Tucker Floral is a local favorite, so waiting until Valentine's Day may be a little risky. Make sure you call ahead!
1701 Buddy Holly Ave.
If you’re more of an eclectic gift-giver, Jux-Ta-Posh is sure to have a one-of-a-kind piece for your S.O. The local store that calls their inventory “an unexpected combination of salvage and style” carries everything from bedding and decor to antiques and items that are “Jux for Men.” Prices range pretty widely, so you can feel confident shopping within your budget, while finding a stunning gift that shows your love for its recipient. And to make it easy, their website even features a “gifts” tab. Check it out for a bit of inspiration!
511 Ave. K
If you and your partner are more of an experiences couple rather than a gift-giving one, plan a date to visit the art galleries at LHUCA. LHUCA says their goal is to “bring insightful, thought provoking exhibitions that will deepen your understanding, appreciation, and connection with the arts.” How incredible would it be to share that with someone you love? LHUCA features four different galleries that host local, national, and international artists. You can check out their current exhibits here. And if you see a piece, fall in love, and want to take it home–you can do that too! Gift? Check!
If you’re worried about planning a date now, don’t. We’ve got you covered there too.
