Has Valentine's Day 2013 taken you by surprise? Or have you been looking for just the right way to celebrate? Here are some last-minute suggestions from Island businesses on Facebook:

Gifts and cards

  • Is your loved one into yoga, spirituality and natural living? Sanctuary at 42 Circuit Avenue, Oak Bluffs posts "Keep us in mind for gifts that warm the Heart- We are open for Valentine's Day- Wed. and Thurs. from 11am-5pm."
  • You can buy Lisa Vanderhoop's humorous "Seadogs" Valentine cards at Chilmark's Sovereign Bank branch, she said in an email to Patch.
  • Vineyard Vines has a free "Whalentine" card you can download and print yourself: Click here if your sweetie loves pink whales.

Flowers

  • "Did you know that if you buy any vase from Rainy Day you can receive a coupon for 10% off any flowers from Morrice Florist?" posts Rainy Day, 66 Main Street, Vineyard Haven.
  • Stop & Shop has topped up on bins of flowers at both locations. Figure about $15 a bunch, plus tax.
  • "We have some absolutely beautiful rose bouquets for your valentine. As you would expect, a great price at $24.99/Dozen. While they last!" posts Tisbury Farm Market & Vineyard Grocer.

Sweets

  • Chilmark Chocolates is open; you can also find sweet Valentine treats at Island spots including:
  • Not Your Sugar Mama's, 79 Beach Road, VH
  • The Scottish Bakehouse, 977 State Road, VH
  • Vineyard Haven Public Library, which posts "The cupcakes are ready! The cupcakes are ready! 3:30 tomorrow...don't forget!"

Dinners and experiences

  • Cafe Moxie, 48 Main Street, Vineyard Haven posts: "Valentines Day Dinner starts @ 5:30 p.m call for reservations 508-687-9140."
  • Harbor View still has a few spots for its package: Book a prix-fixe dinner, $150 for two, at its Water Street restaurant and get a free room for the night in the famed hotel: www.harbor-view.com.
  • Bite on the Go, 7 Circuit Ave., Oak Bluffs posts: "VALENTINE'S DAY is tomorrow already... Just few tickets available... Call 508-250-3233 (Valerio) SPECIAL DINNER WITH DJ MATEUS PLAYING ROMANTIC 'TIL LATE NIGHT!"
  • Park Corner in OB wants us to know that "spots are filling up quickly" for its V-Day dinner.
  • For more romantic dinner ideas, the Martha's Vineyard Times has a round-up of Valentine's Day dining here. You can even get a sitter for the kids at the MV Chowder Company in Oak Bluffs, writes the Times' Kaylea Moore.

D.I.Y.

  • Edible Vineyard has a recipe for Pavlova, a crunchy meringue with whipped cream and fruit: "Light, fluffy, decadent, fun, delicious. Show your Valentines how much you adore them with a Pavlova!"

Hello and congrats on the new job! New Moon Magick-Enchanted Chocolates has lots of heart boxes filled with Almond Butter Crunch, Pirate Food and Truffles. Our Valentines Sale is back- 1 free lollipop with each 1/2 lb purchase and 20% off vintage jewelry!

I see Kathleen beat me to it, but New Moon Magick's Enchanted Chocolate is hands down the best chocolate on earth. There are even chocolates with love spells! It's the real deal, dark chocolate with a high cacao ratio, so it's delicious and great for your heart- what possible better Valentine could there be?

Thanks Philip- you're the best! Also, forgot- chocolate dipped strawberries!
