Be a Lowcountry Valentine: Ideas from local designers made available online

As if finding a Valentine wasn't stressful enough, once you get one, you've got to order flowers, go to the drugstore to pick up a card, and if you really want to go the extra mile, go to ANOTHER place to pick up chocolate. Phew. I'm tired already.

But fear not lovebirds, the smart kids over at Lowcountry Valentines are aiming to make it easier for all of us.  A one stop shop online for all things Valentines, you can purchase flowers, a card, chocolates, and unique gifts all in one spot, for prices that would make cupid sing.  And it will delivered to your special someone in the Greater Charleston area - on Valentine's Day - for a low flat rate.
