Did you forget that it’s Valentine’s Day? Really busy at work and hoping that there is a heart-shaped box of chocolates left at the drug store when you fly through there later this evening? Can’t stomach the idea of spending hundreds of dollars on the same-old, same-old flowers, candy and greeting cards – but haven’t thought of a good alternative yet?
If you’re looking for last minute Valentine’s Day gift ideas – we have some suggestions that are great alternatives to traditional gifts and will have you looking like a romantic pro!
Silk Flowers for Valentine’s Day
Don’t you hate spending $50-$100 on a bouquet of flowers just to throw them away in a week (or less!). Give your special someone a long-lasting bouquet made of silk flowers. The cost will be about the same – but she’ll be able to keep them forever.
Last minute gift tip: Instead of stopping at the florist or floral counter at the grocery store to fight the crowds and hope to get a decent selection – head to JoAnn’s, Michaels or your local craft store to grab a bouquet of long-lasting silk flowers.
Sexy Red Shoes
We’ve yet to meet a woman who doesn’t melt over a great pair of red shoes… or a man for that matter! So, for a sexy gift for both of you, take a peek at her shoe size and grab her a pair of red hot heels:
Last minute gift tip: Instead of cards, flowers or candy – stop at your local department store like Macy’s, Nordstrom or Lord & Taylor and pick out a pair of red shoes. Even if your Valentine isn’t into heels – a fun pair of red flats, tennis shoes or even slippers are a fun gift.
A Massage – for Later
Getting an appointment for a massage today is probably out of the question – but that doesn’t mean you can’t get her a gift certificate for a massage. That way, you can enjoy a quiet evening together now and then she can book her massage later when she has time to relax.
Last minute gift tip: In most areas, you can find massage services offered by reputable salons and yoga studios. Or, if you’re near travel destinations like golf and ski resorts and casinos – you’ll find that some of them will have a spa that offers massage services. Many of these establishments also offer online gift certificates, so you don’t even have to stop at the store on the way home from work!
