Or maybe that's the smell of Valentine cookies.
For all of you (mostly men) who have asked me, "What day is Valentine's Day?!?", IT'S FEBRUARY 14. Every single year. Same day, always. Now that we've cleared that up, let's talk about what sort of treats you should give your friend/coworker/crush/boss/mom/dad/dog walker/spouse. We have treats appropriate for just about anyone in your life. You can add the secret love note, sappy card, or snarky Valentine message as you see fit.
AWESOME FRIEND: Better Than Flowers (Lavender Sea Salt) shortbread hearts + a Red Hot Red Velvet tiny cake.
CHOCOLATE LOVING COWORKER: Bittersweet Love Sandwich Cookies
ABOVE COWORKER THAT IS TOTALLY OBLIVIOUS TO YOUR CRUSH ON HIM/HER: Add a "Hot Stuff" hand decorated conversation heart to those sandos, and check out the reaction.
BOSS: A box of hand decorated shortbread hearts, plus an order of Valentine cookies for the office. Universally cute, and shows your team-building holiday spirit.
MOM: A"LOVE" brownie and box of dipped shortbread hearts. Mom probably says she doesn't like sweets, but secretly loves icing as much as the rest of us.
DAD: Bacon Date Cornmeal shortbread minis (good man cookies) and a "Hug Me" conversation heart. Everyone needs a good Dad-hug once in awhile.
DOG WALKER: A bag of Valentine confetti cookies, because when you see dog sh*t all day long, you probably need some extra sprinkles in your life.
SPOUSE (or future spouse candidate): "Honey, I Love You" shortbread hearts and a ganache drenched red velvetheart cake. Have a romantic night and eat some cake.
Pick up treats at any all of our retail locations in SF, on Good Eggs, and at various pop-up events in Portland! Be the office hero and book your order early for Friday 2/12 celebrations. Order for shipping by Wednesday 12/10. Visit us at our usual 555 California Street concourse tables Thurs 2/11 10am-4pm and Friday 2/12 8am-sellout. Farmer's Market Saturday 2/13 will be filled with heart-shaped treats.
Sweet Valentine's Day, lovely people!
