Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and you ended up waiting until the last minute.

Simpsons Time to Panic Meme

Don't panic! We have 6 gift ideas to make you the hero your SO deserves.

1. Chocolates

Skip the large box of mass-produced chocolate. Hazel Hill on Kansas Ave. downtown offers a variety of freshly made chocolate treats (and caramel apples)! They have bagged goodies, boxed chocolates and glass assortments readily available for pick up.

2. Jewelry

If your partner needs some new bling, there are several jewelers who are sure to have something that catches your eye (and your SO's heart).  Briman’s Leading Jewelers, David’s Jewelers, Calhoun's Jewelers, and Donaldson's Jewelers all have wonderful selections of diamonds, gemstones and gold (aka items that can get you off the hook). 

3. Wine

Stop by The Prairie Fire Winery retail store in Brookwood Village. You can sample wine with the guidance of experts and select a bottle (or two) for later. You can also head over to Crooked Post Winery or Glaciers Edge Winery for more local options.

4. Art Lovers

If you're shopping for a crafter, satisfy their need to create by securing them a spot in an art class. Leaping Llamas, Prairie Glass Studio, Paint Therapy Uncorked and Pinned offer multiple classes and projects all year round.

5. Clothing & Accessories
