With Valentine’s Day this month, you might be thinking that the usual kinds of gifts just aren’t special enough for that someone special in your life. If you have an incredibly sweet sweetheart, you won’t want to miss some of the local sweet shops and great destinations when you visit Lenoir & the NC Foothills for a great treat. There are several options if you’d like to do something different this year. Here are three that should go over quite well for showing your sweetheart just how much they mean to you.
Hole Lotta Doughnuts in Lenoir & West Jefferson
Hole Lotta Doughnuts has two locations. One is at 308 Morganton Blvd. SW, Lenoir, North Carolina, and the other is at 211 Backstreet, West Jefferson, North Carolina. It might seem a bit odd to consider doughnuts as a sweetheart gift, but when you get a look at the size of their doughnuts, you’ll realize there is no better idea than to have one in hand as the start of a great day. Their incredibly fluffy, handcrafted yeast doughnuts are made without automation, so they can be larger and higher quality than standard doughnuts. Add in that they are made with a “hole lotta love,” and you can see why they’d make a great gift for your sweetheart.
The Flour Shoppe in Lenoir
The Flour Shoppe is located at 810 W Avenue NW, Lenoir, North Carolina. This small, family-owned bakery on the square in downtown Lenoir has a wide variety of sweets to satisfy any sweet tooth.

Don’t hesitate to ask for something customized so you can make a great impression on your sweetheart.
Blanca’s Cakes in Hudson
Blanca’s Cakes is located at 2441 Norwood Street SW, Lenoir, North Carolina. You will adore the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere and the sweet spirit of the owner of this quaint eatery and bakery.
