Valentines Day falls on a Thursday this year and you can get some serious brownie points from your loved one if you gift them some sweet treats from Mt. Hood Territory to celebrate. Even more brownie points if you book them a fantastic suite for the night (or several nights) to make it a holiday getaway to remember. Mt. Hood Territory businesses are on top of it with romantic options throughout the area and you can bet your sweetheart's taste buds will salivate over the choicesSparkly and varied colored cupcakes from Kyras Bake Shop in Lake Oswego

Fat Cupcake in Oregon City is one of my favorite sweets stops because the cupcakes are insanely amazing, the staff is so fun and helpful and the shop is so darn cute. I can't decide on my favorite, it's between the Charlie Brown, the Goody Gracious or The Professional...so I just get all three. Kyra's Bake Shop in Lake Oswego is unique because it's a 100% gluten free facility and the owner is a bit of a celebrity, having won Food Network's "Cupcake Wars" series a whopping four times! Plus the menu is delectable. I'm not a person who generally eats gluten free foods but I was hooked after trying several items, meeting Kyra herself and feeling right at home in the shop's sparkly atmosphere. Another favorite is the Tollgate Bakery in Sandy. Anyone who's made a trip up to the mountain (or on their way back down) has stopped in to try a made-from-scratch pie, cake or pastry because their reputation for yumminess has proceeded them. (editor's note: The blueberry muffins are awesome! -J)   

To up the ante in the gifting department you could consider a romantic evening away, like a night at the Mt. Hood Oregon Resort where you can stay in a fireside suite and experience The Spa with their Winter Spa Specials. While you are there enjoy a scrumptious meal at Altitude Restaurant & LoungeTwo massage tables and candles for a couples massage at the Spa at Mount Hood Oregon Resort in Oregons Mount Hood Territory

If you want the trifecta, you should definitely hit Timberline Lodge & Ski Area for your overnight stay, skiing and Valentine's Dinner. This romantic multi-course meal from the award-winning Cascade Dining Room will feature incredible food, wine pairings and desserts, all while looking out the window to see the sparkling white mountain as the lights bounce off the slopes. Check out their overnight and ski packages for the combination that suits your needs best. Or watch the lights of the city reflect off of Oswego Lake from the balcony of your beautiful room at Lakeshore Inn in Lake Oswego. You're within strolling distance of many great restaurants and attractions. For even more romance, try snuggling up in a cozy bed and breakfast

Whatever you end up choosing, you really can't go wrong with Valentine's Day in Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory.
