At one point or another, we’ve probably all given -or received – the box of chocolates, dozen roses, or heart-shaped locket (you know the one). And while it’s really the thought behind the gift that counts this Valentine’s Day, give your special someone something that’s truly special – with a last-minute gift that says I love you (while avoiding the obvious).
Want to really impress your sweetheart? Then gift them something that isn’t quite so expected. You’ve still got time to find something fun, functional, or fully indulgent this holiday – and we’re showing you how! All these ideas are available for two-day shipping, so you can still get them in time for V-day.
Keep scrolling to see 8 ideas for last-minute gifts (that avoid all heart-shaped cliches).
