A weekend away makes an ideal romantic surprise gift. Consider one of Northeast Ohio's many bed & breakfast inns
or perhaps a fall weekend in Amish Country
. There are also a charming selection of bed & breakfast inns on the Lake Erie Islands
, a great choice for a summer or fall getaway.
Give Chocolate--Always a Favorite

Northeast Ohio has two chocolate factories--Malley's Chocolates
on Brookpark Rd. (and with numerous retail outlets throughout NE Ohio) and Harry London Chocolates
in Akron. Both offer a diverse selection of romantic chocolate gifts, including Malley's hand-dipped chocolate strawberries at Valentine's Day
For an easy online chocolate gift, consider the luscious double chocolate brownies
from Legal Seafoods (pictured at left).
Whether it's a handful of daisies or two dozen roses, few things are as unexpected and delightful as receiving flowers. Order yours from one of the many Cleveland florists
or Akron florists
or order online from vendors such as 1-800-Florals
A relaxing day of pampering makes a great gift. It's usually something that a person wouldn't splurge on themselves, which makes it doubly appreciated. Cleveland offers a number of elegant day spas, from Mario's International in Aurora to Charles Scott Salon in Rocky River. Or, give a SpaFinders gift certificate and let your sweetheart choose his or her own spa.

Okay, so Cleveland doesn't have "Casablanca" or even "Sleepless in Seattle," but there are enjoyable couples movies that were filmed along the North Coast. Pick up a copy of "A Christmas Story," that holiday classic, or the 1960s comedy, "Fortune Cookie" with Jack Lemmon and Walter Mattheau. There's even Spiderman-3 for superhero enthusiasts.

Sharing an activity can be romantic--especially if that activity involves food. Northeast Ohio offers a number of cooking schools and classes. Sign up for one together or give a gift certificate to the school.
Pick a Pair of Tickets to the Theater

Sharing a theater event or concert is a great way to spend an evening with someone you love. Consider tickets to a Playhouse Square
event, theater tickets to the Cleveland Playhouse
or Karamu Theater, or perhaps tickets to a concert at Quicken Loans Arena.
