Six Last Minute Valentine Gift Ideas
Oh no! You just realized that Valentine's Day is tomorrow. How does someone forget Valentine's Day? I used to think when people used the excuse they forgot that they were just being lazy. But then life happened and I *almost* found myself in the "I forgot" situation this year. Being in trouble with your love isn't a place any of us want to be and thanks to E! News and their last-minute gift ideas, you and I might just be able to avoid that scary place this year.
Yes, this is sort of a lazy gift, but it's better than not giving anything at all. If you're planning to order flowers today for delivery tomorrow, you need to brace yourself because the flowers aren't going to be cheap. Not by a longshot.
Chocolates are pretty much on the same level as flowers unless the person you're giving them to is obsessed with chocolate. Instead of just handing over a heart-shaped box of chocolate, make it look like you at least put some effort into your gift and also grab a sweet card, writing a heartfelt note.
I know, but wait! You probably saw the word "jewelry" and about had a mini panic attack, but you don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on jewelry. Do you realize that those Alex and Ani bracelets sell at local jewelry stores for around $25 and they'll even wrap it up for you? It's true!
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. I think most women would agree.
If you and your Valentine love music and are always singing together, 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. I have to issue a warning, though. Make sure you look up the lyrics before you put the song on the CD. Take for instance the song by the Police, "Every Breath You Take." A lot of people think that's a love song, but it's not. It's really a creeper song.
Yeah, this is a lazy gift but will do the trick in a pinch and the good news is that most gas stations and drug stores sell gift cards. Just make sure that the gift card you buy is for a place your love will actually go to. Step the gift up a notch by putting it in a nice card.
