Another suggestion is Edgars Bakery. The window cases are just gorgeous filled with much yummy delights. From cookies to lemon bars (My fav) to cupcakes and petifores, you cannot go wrong with a little treat from Edgars. http://www.edgarsbakery.com/
...............................................Or...make a cake yourself. Handmade gifts are the best way to go (in my opinion) hands down. I really hate, no despise, uh-lothe Valentines day and it is becaue of the commercial expectation to give. That being said, do not expect me to be saying to folks, go out and purchase jewels or other bogus stuff (sorry. No. I am not a member of the Heman Woman Haters Club. I know I will be bashed. Sorry my sister girls but tis true..). To me though, that stuff is really unnecessary and over the top in the grand scheme of things. But something homemade such as a card, a poem, a picture, something to remind a loved one of a special memory or homemade treats or dishes (sSee Bama's recipe below!!) is sure to score points. With me it does anyway. I would much prefer to have some homemade cookies and a kid made card to any diamond ring or otherwise. Because material things don't matter, but making memories does. It really shows you put forth effort, thought and love into coming up with a clever idea and making it. Neatness does not count. Effort counts.
Hope this helps. I am not Dear Abbey, so if all fails, don't blame me....but if all goes well, leave some feedback. Hope your over commercialized pointless day tomorrow is a good one. Happy V Day....
