We’ve made planning a whole lot easier when it comes to your next date with your special someone! Check out our list of all that Downtown Shakopee has to make sure that you and your significant other can make any special occasion one to remember!

Bring them coffee

A great way to surprise your love is with a good cup of joe or hot chocolate at work. Munkabeans has you covered. Stop in and get a drink to go or waste some time away chatting over a warm beverage.

Frame your moment

Have a favorite picture of you and your significant other? Get it framed at First Avenue Framing; a perfect gift to show how important that moment was to you.

Get dressed up

Whether you’re going out for Valentine’s Day or a special dinner, everyone enjoys when their beau gets dressed to the nines. Men can visit Bill’s Toggery and ladies can stop by Shelly’s Boutique, Stacked Consignment, First Avenue Boutique or One Sexy Biker Chick to get the perfect outfit for your night on the town.

Don’t forget to get a haircut at Saks Salon or Frank’s Barbershop (appointments required). How about a mani-pedi at CA Nails (which could be a fun couples date night!).

Local rules

If you’re looking for a perfect gift made in the region, First Avenue Boutique is your place. Stop by for bath bombs, essential oils, clothing, décor and so much more!

Good eats

Going out to eat is a great way to relieve the stress of food preparation and clean up. Downtown Shakopee has food for every palette. Make sure to call ahead for special reservations at Bravis, O’Brien’s Public House, Pablo’s Mexican Restaurant or Turtle’s Bar & Grill.

For full effect, start with happy hour and/or end with a nightcap at Shakopee BrewHall or Babe’s Place.

More of a morning person? Wampach’s is famous for their breakfast.

Put a (wonderful piece of jewelry) on it

What girl (or guy for that matter) doesn’t like a good piece of jewelry, money clip, or other accessory? Real Gem Jeweler’s has amazing options to fit every need.

Support your local teams

Got a sporty sweetheart? Head over to Valley Sports to pick out some of their favorite gear and maybe some for you to! Who doesn’t love matching outfits in support of their favorite team?!
