Gift ideas on Valentine's Day

It’s Valentines Day! Congrats, you truly did put off your gifting until the last minute.

Sorry (not really), but you’re pretty much stuck with whatever is on the shelf at the grocery or department store.

You are lame.

But all is not lost; we’re here to help. And since you don’t have any other recourse, we’ll list not just one but 10 more last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts that you can pick up on February 14th.

10 Ultra-last-minute Valentine’s Day Gifts

1. A gift card to her favorite restaurant

You’ll be taking her there anyways, but this will serve as a promise to future dates together, which she will love.

2. Flowers & chocolate

Yes, it’s cliche. But it’s cliche for a reason – many gals love it! You can go traditional with a bouquet, or go modern with a succulent or orchid.

For chocolate, just about any store will be brimming with boxes of chocolate. You can go the easy route, or take it to the next level by getting your chocolates from a local artisanal shoppe. She’ll appreciate the extra effort.

3. A stuffed animal

Teddy bears are totally classic. But you’ll be able to find a wide range of stuffies at any department or toy store.

But let’s help you get beyond the last-minute traditional teddy. Does she love playing Pokemon Go? How about a stuffed Pikachu. Is she a sci-fi nerd? You should be able to find something in a Star Wars theme. You know what she likes; hit up a toy store or gaming shop to find something unique at the last minute.

4. Wine

That’s an easy one. Go to a local store, wine shop, winery, etc. and pick out her favorite.

5. Local food/beer/specialty items

In our area, we have famous cheese, chocolate, beer, and wine. It’s a simple matter of driving downtown and shelling out for some good quality local foods or beverages. I’m sure your area has plenty of things she’s always wanted to try.

6. Romantic photo session

Contact a local portrait photographer and arrange for a couple’s portrait session. She’ll be thrilled, and this will let her know that you think she’s beautiful enough to be a model.

You don’t even have to arrange everything with the photographer (or even choose one – she might already have one she particularly likes), just give her a card with a note letting her know she’s getting a photo session. Be sure to check out the costs in advance so you know what you’re getting yourself into!

7. Clothing & accessories

There’s probably a few t-shirts, hoodies, coats, hats, purses, belts, socks, etc. that she’s mentioned she wants. Whatever it is, pick it up for her along with some chocolates at the local department store.

8. Coupon book

Coupon book gifts are classic, simple, and meaningful. Be sure to choose ideas that are actually important and helpful to her. You can DIY or go printable style.

9. Tickets

Find a fun, unique, or romantic event and get tickets for it. Last-minute movie tickets or gift cards are ok, but think about going the extra mile.

Pick a local festival, a nearby (or far away!) concert of a favorite band, or go to the theater for a play or musical for a truly memorable night.

10. DIY Valentine’s Day gift

A DIY is a great way to show you care. Check out this list or maybe this list and also this one for plenty of DIY Valentine’s Day gift ideas.

Keep in mind that many DIY projects take several hours plus some resources. Plan on running to a craft or hardware store plus a chunk of your afternoon.
