Cobb County has all the big department stores that other counties in Georgia have. However, we are lucky to have some smaller shops that feature uniquely made products from local store owners.
These unique local gifts range from handmade jewelry to sweets and treats. The options in Cobb County will cater to all different budgets and price ranges. Let’s take a look at a few of our favorites that are right in our neighborhood.
The Rustic Market
We love the Rustic Market as it has several locations in the Cobb County area, and it has a wide range of gifts and specialty items. If you have no idea what to purchase as a Valentine’s Day gift, walking into the Rustic Market will certainly clear things up for you.
The housewares and kitchen items, like the Mr. & Mrs. mug set, are a great choice for those that enjoy spending time in the kitchen. There are also personal items in the boutique, like hand crafted bags, shawls, and even jewelry.
With the Rustic Market catering to a wide range of styles, there is something here for everyone. In addition, your budget does not need to be within a certain range as there are both large and small gifts.

Mettle By Abby
If you think that jewelry is overdone as a Valentine’s Day gift, think again. A local artist in Woodstock, Georgia, by the name of Abby, hand forges every piece of jewelry she makes. If you want something unique that features 14k gold, diamonds, gemstones, or sterling silver, you can find it.
One of the most interesting things about the jewelry that Abby makes is that she incorporates nature into many of the pieces. Although Abby does not have her own shop, all of this handcrafted jewelry is available at David Douglas Diamonds and Jewelry.
Take a look at some of the unique pieces on her website as well, including the Iconic Birthstone collection. With the Mettle By Abby jewelry, you won’t be wondering whether or not your partner already has one of these pieces; they are all incredibly unique.

A Cacao Affair
Don’t worry; we didn’t forget about chocolate. After all, what is Valentine’s Day without a sweet treat? One of our favorite unique locally made Cobb County Valentine’s gifts is the ability to create your chocolate box and have it delivered in the local area.
A Cacao Affair has been around for more than five years and offers everything from fruit and nuts to chocolate bars and truffles. However, the ability to pick out the individual chocolates for your special someone and have them delivered is a really great benefit.
The smallest box available has four chocolates, and the largest is 25 pieces of chocolate. Don’t forget that although A Cacao Affair specializes in chocolate, they have lots of other handmade treats to cater to any taste preference.
Price Range: $5-$250

If you are afraid that a box of chocolates as a Valentine’s day gift may not be unique enough, you haven’t seen the creations at Chef Brulee. These candies and treats are almost too beautiful to eat.
With the Chef Brulee candies, expect colorful designs hand crafted to be beautiful and delicious. However, the in-store experience is one we highly recommend. You can also put together a box of custom chocolates on the Chef Brulee website.
The chocolates offered at Chef Brulee can be shipped to many locations across the country. If you are trying to find something that will work long distances, this is a great choice.
