So Valentine’s Day is in TWO DAYS! I’m super excited because I have Marley after school that day. I’m going to make her a strawberry cake. It’s so nice to have more time to see her. But, back to the whole TWO DAYS UNTIL VALENTINE’S DAY thing.
If my last two years in retail have taught me anything, it’s that so many people wait until the very last minute to buy their gifts. Literally, the lunch hour on Valentine’s Day is so pack with people buying last minute ‘Oops I forgot!’ gifts. It’s all good, we all forget sometimes. So, if you haven’t remember to grab that special somebody a gift for Wednesday yet, here are four last minute gift ideas that don’t scream ‘I had ten minutes to grab something at the mall and had no idea what you’d want so I got you the same perfume/cologne I always get you’. Not that there’s anything wrong with gifting perfume or cologne (it’s actually one of my favorite things to receive!).
This will forever be put on all of my gift idea lists because they are the gift that keep on giving! Rocksbox is a jewelry subscription service that lets you borrow three super trendy pieces with zero commitment. But if you fall in love with something, you can buy it a member discount. I’ve been getting them for almost a year and I’ve bought several pieces. I’m so in love with this subscription box! Other great subscriptions include IPSY (super affordable), The Ring Boxes (for the engaged), Rent the Runway (for the fashion lover), and Fab Fit Fun (for the girl who has it all). They make lots of great options for men, too, including Trunk Club (for the well dressed), Wrist Society (all about watches), and Southern Cigar Co.
You don’t have to shell out crazy bucks for the Apple watch. There are several more affordable options like the Michael Kors Access watch which comes in several different styles AND you can get different bands to really switch up your look. If low key is more their style, check out the Fossil Q which has a slightly more laid back, casual look. Both of these brands offer the full smart watch option (touch screen, full app options, etc) and the hybrid option (no touch screen, full app options, etc).
Date Night Outfit
So we see this in movies all the time and it’s adorable. If you two have fun plans for Valentine’s Day, grab them a cute outfit to wear for it! Ok, maybe a whole outfit is a bit much, but a sweet note and a cute, new top or shoes left on the bed where they can find it? Perfect. Do you guys have plans to stay in? Grab some matching jammies or a cute couples tee. Or something a little more . . . . adventurous. *wink*
Let’s be honest, personalized gifts make it seem like you thought ahead! And so maybe your gift won’t be there in two days – unless you hit Things Remembered – but you can always wrap a picture of their present! Think personalized Nikes or Vans (maybe matching for the both of you?), or a cookbook filled with their favorite family recipes, a photo album of the two of you. Get creative with it and it there is no way they’ll think you waited until two days before!
