Inspiring Gift Options
The abundance of storefronts in downtown Davidson makes finding the right Valentine’s Day present a breeze. Stop by Davidson Provision Company, an outdoor retailer and general store in one, or browse the incredible selection of tailored fashions at MINE by Sandy boutique shop. Any trip to Davidson calls for stopping into our Village Store where you’ll find an amazing variety of gifts in a charming setting. Of course, it wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a decadent box of chocolates, so we recommend stopping by the Davidson Chocolate Company.
