Sure, the historic snow storm that teared through the Watertown area 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 hassle?
Head into the village centers this afternoon 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 or a robust glass of wine. Arsenal Wine and Spirits or Magnolia Wine Company can recommend something great, including old favorites, new finds, and a few distilled locally.
2. GET ACTIVE
If you are shopping for an athlete, why not head over to Sports Authority or Golf Town.
Consider the gift of relaxation and stress relief with a 60-minute gift certificate for a massage. Try Tranquility Day Spa or Lily's Massage.
Randy's Car Wash and Perfection Car Wash will get you car shining. If you're not sure what your guy would like, a nice gift certificate to an auto store could work, too.
5. THE WAY TO A MANS HEART…
Why cook? Select a complete gourmet dinner at one of Watertown's many restaurants.
GIFTS FOR HER
1. BIG THINGS IN LITTLE PACKAGES
You can't go wrong with jewelry. Check out Marcou Jewelers or Almoda Jewelry for a great gift she will love.
2. DATE NIGHT
Why go out on a cold winter’s night? Instead surprise her with a ticket to a show or concert at the Arsenal Center for the Arts.
3. DAY OF RELAXATION
Give her a day of relaxation with a gift certificate to one of Watertown's spas and salons.
4. CAN’T FIND THE RIGHT WORDS?
Looking for something besides candy and flowers, try getting her something nice at Victoria's Secret or something to make her feel and smell nice from Bath and Body Works.
5. GO TRADITIONAL.
CVS and Stop & Shop have the traditional Valentine's Day chocolates and goodies.
Above all, remember: it's truly the thought that counts!
