Gift guide

Last-minute gifts for the uninspired

Want to get flowers but don’t want to be boring? Central Market is offering 17 different varieties of red roses, including the popular half-red, half-white ‘Latin Lady.’ If the relationship hasn’t quite progressed to the ‘red roses’ stage, Central Market is also offering 43 other color choices, as well as less intimidating tulips and daisies.

Does your sweetie have a sweet tooth? Paciugo is selling imported Italian chocolates, nougat and lollipops for under $3, as well as cartons of their famous gelato. Take home a frozen treat to heat things up later.

Alone on Valentine’s? Feeling a little?angst? Stop by Barnes&Noble and buy “Hell Hath No Fury,” a book of letters from women who just experienced a breakup. Topics range from the silent treatment to the infamous ‘just friends’ speech. Men, beware.

Looking to kick-start your libido (or maybe your Valentine’s)? Look no further than M. Bountiful, a florist with an edge that offers Aphrodite, an herbed soda that guarantees to ‘fuel passion.’ The self-proclaimed aphrodisiac is brewed in small batches from exotic herbs and vitamins. The soda’s Web site, www.erosdrinks.com, offers alcoholic drink mixes to liven up the evening. Our favorite? The ‘Damned Tart,’ a mix of one ounce cinnamon schnapps and two ounces Aphrodite served over ice in a sugar rimmed glass. Shaken, not stirred, please.
