Last Minute Valentine's Day Gift Ideas
Valentine's Day is tomorrow! Did you get your significant other a special something yet?! If you didn't here are three easy, affordable, and thoughtful last minute ideas.
1. Candlelit Dinner for Two
This is a very manageable last minute Valentine's Day idea. All you need is to place a to-go order with your significant other's favorite restaurant (or if you have time, cook their favorite meal), set the table, light some candles, pour a couple glasses of wine (or mix their favorite cocktail), dim the lights, and voila! A romantic dinner for two.
I love this idea because it takes place in your own home. No need to make a last minute reservation, you won't have to worry about social distancing, and what is more romantic than walking into your home and seeing a beautiful surprise candlelit dinner that was prepared just for you.
If you want to kick this dinner up a notch then go buy a single rose in a bud vase for your centerpiece. It's classy and shows that you thought of every detail.
2. Romantic Movie Night
This is another great date night that you can do in the comfort of your own home. For this idea all you need is a movie (maybe a rom-com or something super sappy), some sugar filled snacks to munch on, and a super cozy blanket.
The key is to have it all set up and ready to go beforehand. Really pay attention to the ambiance. Light some candles, fluff the pillows, drape the blanket, and have all of those delicious snacks out in bowls.
If you want to go the extra mile you can have a beautiful bouquet of flowers sitting next to the snacks. You could also have a bottle of champagne chilling and ready to serve.
3. Surprise Spa
This final idea is for the significant other that loves to be pampered. What you'll need for this spa experience is a clean bathroom (this should go without saying), some rose petals, candles, bubble bath, relaxing music, a fluffy towel or robe ready to go, and a glass of wine. Again ambiance is key!
Timing is key. If you beat them home and prepare all of this beforehand make sure you save filling the tub until the very last minute. It wouldn't be a very relaxing soak if the water is already lukewarm by the time they climb in.
There you have it! Three easy, affordable, and thoughtful Valentine's Day ideas. If you want to go the extra mile these ideas are great combined. It would be a Valentine's Day they will never forget.
