The 'oh, shit' guide to last-minute Valentine's Day gifts

Valentine's Day is Friday and you haven't bought your sweetheart a gift yet? Consider your ass saved.

In case you've managed to ignore the red and pink candy displays at every convenience store in the city, we're here to remind you that Valentine's Day is right around the corner. It's happening on Friday, in fact. And even if you've already made your dinner plans for the evening, don't forget about a gift. Yes, you have to get a gift, too. And even if you wait until the last minute to pick up a present for your date, these gifts (available in Chicago stores) won’t reek of last-ditch efforts. Translation: There’s still time to buy something more thoughtful than a box of chocolates.
