MI Money: Invest in Valentine's Day, Island-Style

You don't have to travel far to show how much you care.

Did you know that next Tuesday is Valentine's Day? Do you have dinner reservations, flowers, sweets or some other token of your affection to give your loved one? If not, don't fret. Thankfully, it's not too late to purchase a perfect gift from the heart. Here are some ideas that are sure to make your Valentine smile.

If you've already made dinner reservations for the big night, your advance planning efforts should be congratulated. If not, start dialing for your seating at one of our local eateries such as: Bennett's Pure Food Bistro; The Islander; Sushi Joa; Stopsky's; El Sombrero or .

What if your sweetie has a sweet tooth? Look no further than Oh! Chocolate. Their fabulous confections are sought after throughout the Greater Seattle area and beyond. If you're having trouble making a selection, you won't go wrong with the popular sea salt caramels, the key lime truffles or the dark chocolate champagne truffles.

Say it with flowers! Who doesn't like a beautiful, fragrant floral arrangement? Mercer Island Florist creates artful and gorgeous arrangements, but place your order early so you aren't left out!

If your sweetheart doesn't have enough time in the day, he or she might enjoy a few hours or a day of pampering. You can create a menu of services for your Valentine from one of the outstanding Island spas and salons. Get your gift cards at any one-or combine a few-of the following Island merchants: , Studio 904, Au Courant, Sophia's European Salon or .

You don't have to travel far or break the bank to give a meaningful gift to your Valentine, but a thoughtful remembrance is always appreciated.

We also enjoy Han’s Garden Restaurant. Whether it is for eating in or take out for either lunch or dinner, we think the food is quite good and a fine value. Dan and Pat Braman
