You can really get to know someone over a cup of coffee. Not only is a coffee date cheap, it is also less intimidating if you are just starting to date around Valentine's Day. 5th and Main Coffees will be a great place to sit down, sip some delicious brew and talk while munching on some baked goods. Plus, if the date goes well, you can know their coffee order to surprise them with a cup in the future!


Flowers are something every lady secretly, or not-so-secretly wants on Valentine's Day. The sentiment fits so perfectly with the holiday that if you don't know what else to get, this is the safest option. Murray is full of amazing florists. Murray's Florist just opened on the court square and worth a look! Wilson's Florist, Flowers by Whitney, Festive Touch and Cherry Tree Florists are a few more options to consider.
