Some people have them custom designed and personalized. You may be too shy to speak the words of love, how romantic that a card can do it for you.
6 Last-Minute Gift Ideas
A last-minute gift idea that’s always available is flowers and it’s always appreciated as well. Orange Blossom gives the message of innocence, eternal love, and marriage. The beautiful Blue Violet means faithful and true, and the Red Rose says I love you. Any or a combination of these would make a thoughtful gift and Valentine’s Day more romantic.
Additional last-minute Valentine’s Day gift ideas include… A generous gift certificate, chocolates in a heart-shaped box, a romantic book of poems, a beautiful picture frame in a heart shape design, or even silky frillies chosen with care of course. Take care not to cut it too close in case you may need to order some of these items online and depend on shipping them to your recipient. The USPS is experiencing bottlenecks in certain states due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A romantic Valentine’s dinner makes a wonderful gift, this is something you could prepare yourself… Soft lights and a rom-com DVD would show how much you care. A gentle hug and kiss will help start a Valentine’s Day to remember. There are also many apps you can use to have a nice dinner delivered to your home. Those apps include GrubHub, DoorDash, Uber Eats, and Postmates. It’s no secret that many restaurants are hit severely hard by the coronavirus pandemic. With many states closing bars and restaurants’ indoor dining options, they have relied heavily on deliveries. Some of these apps are working to aid these hard-hit restaurants. For example, GrubHub has an option for customers to donate their change to the Grubhub Community Relief Fund at checkout. Donations go to charitable organizations supporting local restaurants and drivers impacted by COVID-19.
Got Some Time?
For those that plan ahead, pending availability due to the pandemic, a couple of ideas are a weekend break being pampered at a health spa or a special photoshoot including hairdressing, makeup and designer wear with a complete photo album to keep the memory forever.
