Last Minute Valentine’s Day Ideas

By Thedreamery

Last Minute Valentine's Day IdeasOh Valentine’s Day, the day of love. Everyday should be one you share love to not only your significant other, but those closest to you. Then again it’s always nice to show, and receive, it a little bit more some days. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be stressful or break the bank either. So I decided to share some affordable, yet intimate ways to spend Valentine’s Day with your beau, as well as some last-minute gift ideas that would make for a perfect Valentine’s Day.

1. Give the gift that gifts all year-long with a monthly subscription. What woman wouldn’t love her very own Birchbox. As for the men, Dollar Shave Club is an easy and fast idea, plus their quality razors get shipped right to your guy’s doorstep for as little as $1 a month! If you haven’t heard about their services, I’m sure your guy has seen their funny video. Not your typical Valentine’s day gift, but why not, every man needs a good shave, plus there’s nothing more simple than razors, and men like simple. I know my guy has been talking Dollar Shave Club up.

2. What girl and guy doesn’t love lingerie, I for one treat myself to a new piece just for myself from time to time. Just make sure you know your girl’s size. Victoria’s Secret have sweet and dreamy pieces. Babydoll via Victoria’s Secret

3. Sometimes baked goods are the only way to your love’s heart. Hand pies shaped into hearts are adorable, and can be filled with their favorite flavors. But a basket full of goodies wouldn’t be bad either, Mouth offers curated gift sets with indie food products. They’ve got unique bites for all tastes and interests, not to mention a bunch of great options for Valentine’s Day.

4. If you and your partner like to get your drink on, find a fancy bottle of your favorite booze and serve it up with these yours & mine glasses. Recreate your own custom glasses with this easy how to. There will be no denying this gift is the perfect pair, just like the two of you.

6. Girls love flowers, but if you didn’t order flowers already most last-minute bouquets won’t be special, so what’s better than a bouquet you can eat. Create a bouquet with macarons for the your gal, or one with mini liquor bottles or craft beers for your guy.

7. Have a gourmet dinner…at home. If you haven’t made a reservation, it will surely be hard to get one now. But I prefer a home cooked dinner at home with J, and it makes it much more romantic too. Pick a meal you both really love, cook it together, and make sure to include some of these aphrodisiac flavors. Start your meal with a wine and cheese tasting, then get dressed up {or just be as comfortable as having an indoor picnic}, then light some candles, and put some music on. Really savor your meal, and talk well into dessert.

8. Indulge in a movie marathon. Valentine’s day is on a Saturday this year, which is the perfect excuse to wake up lazily, have breakfast in bed together then spend the rest of the day catching up on shows or watching movies you both love. Want to make it even more fun and cozier, bring out the kid inside you both, and build a fort. If you happen to live where it most likely will be snowing, there’s no better way than to snuggle with your love all day.

9. Dance the night away. Take a dance class together and learn to salsa. Or get dressed up and head to your favorite nighttime spot, just the two of you. Your attention will be only on your love, plus all the moving you’ll be doing together will definitely put you in the mood.

10. If you’ve just started seeing someone new, it can be difficult to decide what’s right to gift. I read this on M Loves M, and I thought it was such a cute and fun idea. Each person starts with $10, then heads to the dollar store and buys as many random gifts they can for the other person. It will be fun and interesting to see what the other will find. Definitely a Valentine’s Day you won’t forget.

11. Recreate your first date. Go back to where it all began, if you can take the trip to where you had your first dinner or shared that first kiss. Even if you have to fly somewhere to recreate those memories, it’s will be totally worth it.

12. Share sweet nothings. Leave your partner simple love notes throughout the day with sweet words on how much you love them, what makes them pretty, making a promise to take over an annoying chore, or tell them how much you love that they laugh at all your jokes. Those sweet nothings are just so romantic when written. Everyone deserves to be told all the ways you love them.

At the end of the day, Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be a big fuss. Even if it’s a simple handmade card, dinner at home or a movie night in, remember to be love and share love this Valentine’s Day.
