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).

Send Flowers

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.

Treat Her -- or Him -- to a Day at the Spa

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.

Watch a Romantic Movie Filmed in Cleveland

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.

Share a Cooking Class
