Candy and cards, flowers and teddy bears, you can’t swing a stick in a store this time of year without bumping into some garish red display hawking Valentine treats. And I guess that’s okay. It is the continuation of a long tradition that crowns February as the month of love and romance. According to one frisky legend, the original theme of Valentine’s Day descends from an ancient Roman fertility celebration in mid-February each year. But the day didn’t get its famous name until a kindly priest called Valentine was martyred on February 14, 270 AD and later sainted, thus becoming an eternal symbol of love, marriage, romance, and oh yeah, greeting cards. But that’s enough history for today, as you may have some last minute shopping to do. Here are three last-minute gift ideas for your preparedness enthusiast Valentine.
