Instead of running outside at the last minute to pick your Valentine a bouquet of winter cabbage, plan ahead and opt for a truly unique floral arrangement from the Greenery Patch (753 Queen West, 416-703-1880). This nifty little shop has its paws in everything from custom arrangements and weddings to chair covers and drapery. For Valentine's Day, find a variety of beautifully coloured rose arrangements. Choose from different-sized bouquets from $39.99 up, depending on stem length and variety. Other rare finds include green Fuji mums, Kangaroo Paws, blue hydrangea, beautiful Stargazer lilies and breathtaking orchids.

Looking for a James Bond moment? The super-savvy owners of Aren't We Naughty (3250 Dufferin, 416-783-6533, and others) have made it possible for adventurous Ontario couples to join the Mile High Club and have sex in the clouds. Participants enter a private executive lounge where they sip champagne and await their Cessna C310Q, whereupon the jet-setting couple are given a Naughty gift basket filled with sex toys to play with during their hour-long tour of the Toronto and Niagara skyline. Book your flight at any of the GTA's five Aren't We Naughty locations or online at www.arentwenaughty.com.
