Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is on its way. But don’t panic: Downtown Norfolk has you covered, from start to finish! 


Perfect Presents

It used to be easy: cut enough hearts out of pink construction paper for all of your classmates, then just sit back, relax, and enjoy some candy. But now, it’s time to step up your game. No pressure, right?

Luckily for you, Downtown has something for everyone, from the classic to the unique and one-of-a-kind!

  • If you haven't already gone, you are missing out on all the local, handmade goodness that is Selden Market. There are so many gifts here that you can only get here, like unique modern jewelry, curated retail, modern decor, quality locally made leather goods, and more. And with weekly pop-up retailers, there is always some new gift idea to be discovered. Check out all the tenants at Selden Market.
  • Looking for something as sweet as your sweetheart? The Rustic Tart offers an array of amazing pastries, or grab a dozen delicate and scrumptious French macarons from Hummingbird Macarons & Desserts. Give the gift of delicious s'mores without the hassle of assembling a camping tent by stopping in at S'mores Amore in Selden Market and picking up a modern take on the classic treat you know and love. While you're at Selden Market, don't forget to grab a gluten free, keto and diabetic friendly treat from Baked AF. And don't forget all of Pop Culture Gourmet's amazing popcorn combos; you're sure to find something for the sweet, salty, or savory fan!
  • MacArthur Center features one million square feet of amazing retail offerings, insuring that you will be able to find anything you need for Valentine's Day.
  • For your One-Of-A-Kind Valentine, check out Prince Ink Print Shop for unique, only-in-Norfolk gifts, including T-shirts, notebooks, footballs, and more.

  • Not a sommelier? Leave it to the pros: the folks at Tinto Downtown Norfolk in Dominion Tower can help you find the prefect wine to go with your date plans! Too busy to stop by?

Order your favorite bottle and a mixed cheese & charcuterie board, and let the good people at Tinto deliver it to your car out front (or even to your desk if you work in the same building).

  • With sections for fiction, poetry, history, biography, boating, travel, current events, and more, Prince Books is like a bibliophile’s heaven. Seriously.
