Six Last Minute Valentine Gift Ideas
Oh no! You just realized that Valentine’s Day is Sunday. How does someone forget Valentine’s Day? I’m not sure, but I had a boyfriend once who claims he did ‘forget.’ What’s worse, my birthday is Valentine’s Day, so he totally messed up all the way around.
I don’t want your entire day to be spent in misery, so here are six last minute gift ideas to keep you out of the dog house.
Sure, this is sort of lazy, but definitely more acceptable than nothing. Be warned though that since you’re ordering them today, they’re going to be insanely expensive. Order local too so that they get to him or her today. Arriving tomorrow is unacceptable.
Chocolates are on the same lazy level as flowers unless the person you’re giving them to is a chocolate-aholic. Then you’re good to go. But pair them with a card or something so you don’t look cheap.
You don’t have to spend hundreds. You can go to one of the big box stores and find a piece of jewelry that has a heart or the word “love” on it. Spend 20 bucks or so and you’re good to go. Or, you could pick up one of those super-hot-right-now Alex and Ani bracelets at a local jewelry store for around $25 and they’ll even wrap it up super pretty for you.
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. I’d have to agree.
If your love is the sappy type, this is perfect for them. Just put a bunch of love songs on a CD and when you give it to your love, tell them how each song reminds you of something special about them. BUT- listen to the songs first because you don’t want to include a song that you THINK is a love song but it’s. Take for instance that song by the Police- Every Breath You Take. Total creeper song that people mistakenly think is a love song.
Yeah, this is a lazy gift, but will do the trick in a crunch and the good news is that most gas stations and drug stores sell gift cards. Just make sure it’s to a place that THEY will like. If your woman isn’t into football, but you are and you get her a gift card to the NFL shop, that’s a gift for you and not her and completely uncool.
