It's better late than never when it comes to Valentine's Day gifts.
Here are a couple creative ideas for gifts—including some that you can pick up locally and others you can order online.
GIFTS FOR HIM
1. SOMETHING TO WARM UP THOSE COLD WINTER NIGHTS...
Consider a fine sipping liquor for your gentleman. Someone Grand Cru Wine Merchants, Courtyard Wines or Wisma can recommend something great.
If you're not sure what your guy would like, a nice gift certificate to one of the Lake Bluff or Lake Forest auto stores could work, too.
3. THE WAY TO A MANS HEART…
Why cook? Select a complete gourmet dinner at one of the many Lake Forest and Lake Bluff Retaurants.
GIFTS FOR HER
1. BIG THINGS IN LITTLE PACKAGES
You can't go wrong with jewelry. Check out any of the jewelry stores in Lake Forest or Lake Bluff for a great gift she will love.
2. DAY OF RELAXATION
Give her a day of relaxation with a gift certificate to an area salon or spas. There are so many around.
3. GO TRADITIONAL WITH FLOWERS or CHOCOLATES
If you are looking for specialty chocolates, check out Sweet's. And, for flowers there are plenty of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff possibilities.
Above all, remember: it's truly the thought that counts!
