Sure, the historic snow storm that teared through the region 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 hassel?
Head downtown this morning as soon as the stores open and net a perfect, one-of-a-kind gift for your Valentine.
