Sure, the historic snow storm that teared through the region could be used as an excuse to why you didn't get a superb Valentine's Day gift for your significant other, but, it's a stretch, and why bother going through the hassel?
Head downtown this morning as soon as the stores open and net a perfect, one-of-a-kind gift for your Valentine.
GIFTS FOR HIM
1. SOMETHING TO WARM UP HIS COLD WINTER NIGHTS
Consider a fine sipping liquor for your gentleman. Haley’s Wines and Spirits can recommend something great, including old favorites, new finds, and a few distilled locally.
2. THE WRITE IDEA
Scribe offers fine pens for all his important hand-written documents, which with any hope will include a love letter or two – to you!
4. LET THE SUN SHINE IN
Marblehead Opticians offers an extensive line of fashionable and functional sunglasses to frame every face. Surprise him with a gift that promises sunny days ahead!
5. THE WAY TO A MANS HEART…
Why cook? Select a complete gourmet dinner from Shubie’s or a selection of treats from Candy Pop Sweet Shoppe Light the candles and voila! Romance.
GIFTS FOR HER
Treat her to a luxurious day of beauty at Dayle’s European Skin Care & Day Spa. Choose from a variety of packages, including the Sweet Chocolate Stress Release.
2. BIG THINGS IN LITTLE PACKAGES
Bobbles & Lace offers affordable trinkets for every style. Choose a delicate necklace or some funky new earrings; she’ll be thrilled at the site of the little pink package!
3. CUDDLE UP
Why go out on a cold winter’s night? Instead surprise her with a romantic movie from Chet’s Video (we strongly recommend Truly, Madly, Deeply). Haul out the blankets, turn down the lights and settle in for a night of romantic movie magic.
4. PRETTY AS A PICTURE
Give her something as beautiful as she is. Consider a piece of original art from Brush Strokes Gallery. Choose something from the heart and hers will be delighted.
5. CAN’T FIND THE RIGHT WORDS?
Consider a book of love poems or a classic love story. The folks at Spirit of ’76 have a wide selection of literary gifts to tickle her funny bone or play on her heart strings.
Above all, remember: it's truly the thought that counts!
