It’s Sugar
10 Cooper St. #100C, Downtown Santa Cruz
If your valentine has a sweet tooth, a sense of humor, and likes nostalgia, you can’t go wrong with It’s Sugar, the downtown candy store that has a lot of gag gifts as well as crazy treats. There are giant versions of your favorite sweets, Ruth Bader Ginsburg socks, mugs, sample candy boxes from past decades, and plain goofiness, like a box of only the marshmallows from Lucky Charms.

1329 Pacific Ave. , Downtown Santa Cruz
For a present to share when the kids are gone, we suggest Camouflage, just across Pacific Avenue from It’s Sugar. Lingerie and cute outfits are out front; risqué stuff you want to keep in brown paper coverings are in the back of the store. You are sure to find some romantic items there.
