Luxury and Valentine’s Day seem to go together! A beautiful way to show your love is with gift-giving. Many of our specialty shops in Downtown Covington or Downtown Social Circle can help you select the perfect piece of jewelry, an arrangement of flowers, or another luxurious gift.

For example, if your loved one loves to cook, head to Town Square Olive Oil. For the golfing enthusiast, consider the gift of golf or a golf clinic class from The Oaks Golf Course.
