Restaurants

A dinner date might be predictable and cliche, but so what? Restaurants tend to see higher than average sales on Valentine’s Day. Splurge on a fancy place… if you remember to make reservations!

Jewelry stores (and Pawn Shops)

Who can resist a quality piece of jewelry? A necklace, ring(!) or a sophisticated timepiece can make excellent tokens of affection for that special someone.

Candy Shops & Bakeries

Sweets are the most popular of Valentine’s gifts. Show your sweetie you’re sweet on them with an assortment of sweet sweets!

Lingerie, personal care & clothing or department stores

Maybe you’d like to see someone special in a special something? Or maybe you’d like to wrap yourself up in something special, for that special someone to unwrap? Either way, lingerie is a steamy Valentine’s choice whether you are the giver or receiver.

Florists

Flowers will always be in fashion. They can brighten up someone’s day and really are appropriate at any relationship level. Friend, family, flirt, or fun…if you have someone you’re not sure what to get, but want to make them smile on Valentine’s Day, some beautiful flowers could be just the ticket.
