Valentine's Day is days away and if you're reading this... its actually not too late. Last minute gifts doesn't have to be as blatantly cliché, as that teddy bear from your local drug store or flowers from the gas station. If you play your cards right, your Valentine will never know you were one of those people combing through the internet, days before, searching for a Valentine's Day clue.
Unless your valentine is an avid chocolate candy lover, please, I beg you, stay away from boxed chocolate. It's unoriginal and requires very little thought. Instead, go for gourmet cookies, brownies, or one of those cookie cakes. These are good alternatives for a Valentine's Day staple.
This would also be a good opportunity to make your own baked goods and wrap it with love and care, using tools from your local craft store.
A good watch or a fitbit are very practical gifts. They're safe but useful. Don't overthink it and end up buying something that won't see the light of day after February 14th.
A care package is your chance to get crafty, and if the budget is tight, it's a way to be resourceful. Care packages are special because they're tailor made to showcase your creativity and the different ways you "get" your valentine. Grab a box, decorate it with wrapping paper and fill it up with everything from their favorite brand of socks to their favorite snacks. Be sure to add love notes.
