I love love! This is not a unique thought or statement (in fact, I’m pretty sure old Valentine’s themed blog posts of mine have started with this sentiment as well lol). But I do, I love it. Always have. Always will.
Whether it’s romantic love or friendship love. Familial love. Whatever. It’s lovely.
So I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day (or week, or month? lol no month is probably too much).
Usually I put together a blog of Things To Do for Valentine’s Day (which I may still do) but this year I decided to switch it up with a more sweet treats-focused post that also hopefully brings your attention to small businesses who would surely love your Valentine’s orders this year.
I’m excited to share ideas for ways you can sweeten this year’s Valentine’s with what I’ve found so far, and excited to add even more sweet treats from even more Edmonton businesses as we get closer to Feb. 14! I hope my guide helps you with your romantic plans (or platonic gifting to pals!)
Sweet Treats for Valentine’s Day (2021):
Where to Order in the Edmonton Area
A few notes to keep in mind:
- Please pay attention to order deadline dates! General rule: ordering too early is much, much better than ordering too late. Don’t delay or you’ll be disappointed!
- If you’ve got suggestions for Edmonton area sweet treats to add to this list, let me know!
- This blog post focuses on SWEET TREATS (some savoury within boxes that contain sweets lol but primarily sweet treats/desserts). You can also find Edmonton restaurants offering savoury Valentine’s themed meals as well but that’s not listed in this post.
- I have not tried all listed businesses so I can’t personally vouch for them based on experience. If they’re on this list, it’s because I think what they’re offering is cute or works for Valentine’s Day, and they are based in and serve the Edmonton area.
- If you order from one of these spots after seeing it in this guide, let me AND the business know! I don’t get anything from it—I just like to know when my blog helps businesses :)
