I am ashamed to say that I waited until December 24 to do ALL of my holiday shopping this year. It came down to the wire, but in the end I was victorious, and all the wrapping was done by 10 p.m. (in gift bags of course)! Although I got away with it, I told myself never again! Next time I have to buy gifts I’ll be organized, I’ll have a plan, and most of all I won’t wait until the very last minute.

Well…it’s less than two months later and already that dream is dead, with February 14 only two days away.

If you believe Valentine’s Day is an elaborate conspiracy between chocolate manufacturers and greeting card companies, that’s great, but I doubt that gets you out of any gentlemanly responsibilities this week. With that in mind, I present the Procrastinating Dude’s Guide to Valentine’s Day.

If you’re going the flowers route, our local Baltimore County florists are some of the area’s best. Be sure to shop local, and order IMMEDIATELY!

Delicious Treats
If your significant other has a sweet tooth, Baltimore County has some of the best local businesses offering fine chocolates and baked goods that are sure to please.

Romantic Dining Deals
Normally, spontaneity can be romantic, but on Valentine’s Day, you’ll want reservations!
Many great local restaurants, bistros and cafes offer Valentine’s Day specials and menus. Impress your special someone by trying one of the many fine Baltimore County establishments.
