Valentine's Day is days away and if you're reading this... its actually not too late. Last minute gifts doesn't have to be as blatantly cliche, as that teddy bear from your local drug store or flowers from the gas station. If you play your cards right, your Valentine will never know you were one of those people combing through the internet, days before, searching for a Valentine's Day clue.
Unless your valentine is an avid chocolate candy lover, please, I beg you, stay away from boxed chocolate. It's unoriginal and requires very little thought. Instead, go for gourmet cookies, brownies, or a cookie cake. These are good alternatives for a Valentine's Day staple.
