Weckerly's Ice Cream in Fishtown is offering Conversation Heart Ice Cream Sandwiches for $6 each in honor of Valentine's Day. Gifting your special someone the ice cream treat is one sweet way to show them you care, but there are tons of other delicious gifts available in Philly, too.

Valentine's Day is almost here, but don't be one of those people rushing to the nearest drug store at the last minute for a card and overpriced flower bouquet. You can do better than that.

Your special someone deserves a thoughtful gift and, luckily, Philly offers lots of options. Below are delicious treats you can purchase for your date that will wow them (and their tastebuds).

Conversation Heart Ice Cream Sandwiches from Weckerly's

For Valentine's Day, Weckerly's in Fishtown will offer conversation heart ice cream sandwiches. 

Chocolate or vanilla ice cream is sandwiched between two handmade, iced shortbread cookies and each is decorated with a message of affection. The price is $6 each.

They're available for pre-order through Weckerly's website but also can be purchased in the Fishtown shop from Friday, Feb. 7, through Valentine’s Day.

Wine Dive is selling Valentine's Day gift boxes.

Wine Dive, a new bar and bottle shop on South Street, is offering three different Valentine's Day gift boxes that can be pre-ordered online and picked up on the holiday.

There's a gift box with Dottie's Donuts and a "wowler," which is a wine bottle filled via the draft system at the bar and corked and sealed for carrying out. Another gift box, the "Netflix & Chill," has movie theater candy and a wowler.

Wine Dive even has a gift box you can share with your BFF. It includes two wowlers and flasks.

Olympia Provisions Salami Bouquet

Maybe your special someone isn't into flowers and sweets ... and is more into meats. Don't stress. There's a gift for them available through the Di. Bruno Bros. website.

You can order a bouquet of six "stems" of Olympia Provisions' award-winning salami.

Aurora Grace 15-Piece Bonbon Gift Box

Philadelphia's Aurora Grace is offering a gift box filled with hand-painted bonbons that can be ordered through the Di. Bruno Bros. website through Tuesday, Feb. 11. Flowers can be added on to make the gift extra special.

If that doesn't work for you, you also can visit their shop at 517 S. Fifth St. to browse their delicious selection of artisan treats.
