3 Last-Minute Valentine’s Day Gifts

Jamie Chen

We’ve all been there. It’s a few days out from Valentine’s Day, the hallmarked day that is supposed to garner and celebrate love, and you’ve got no idea what to do. But let’s be honest, Disney movies and rom-coms didn’t prepare us for the stress this day inevitably brings! 

But… you’ve got the help from your most reliable and veracious friend: the internet.

Store-bought flowers and generic chocolate boxes don’t quite embody the momentous, spontaneous, bubbly feelings you feel when you look at them. This year, celebrate love with these simple, yet thoughtful gifts that are sure to knock your loved one off their feet! Though it may be last-minute, you’re about to make this Valentine’s a day that even Aphrodite would approve of.

1. Orchestrate an at-home spa day for the both of you

No matter what your partner says, everybody is in need of a self-care day. Bath bombs and cucumber face masks are customary ingredients in alleviating stress and burn-out, while also inciting romance and recovery. And all you need to do is take a quick trip to Target to grab some spa-day essentials! Here are a few things that just might win over your lucky Valentine: lavender-scented candles, rose petals for the bath, bath bombs and scrubs, sheet masks, hair masks, and body oils. From the comfort of your own home, shower your partner with the care and love you both deserve. 

2. Learn each other’s love language

Have you ever noticed that your partner shows their love differently than how you do? Dr. Gary Chapman, author of The Five Love Languages and counselor, describes five different ways that people can say “I love you” without even saying those three words at all. Those five languages are Physical Touch, Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Gift Giving, and Acts of Service.

Don’t get lost in translation -- this Valentine’s Day, the most romantic gesture is sitting down and truly listening to one another. This practice of deep empathy can allow your relationship to blossom into greater levels of understanding and connection.

So what are you waiting for? Grab a bottle of wine, lay out a board of fancy cheeses and fruit, and crack open your laptop. Take this quiz to find out how you can best love and support your partner!
