Want to know one of the sweetest things you can do for your valentine? Make their life easier by taking the guesswork out of the gift exchange!

It’s easy: Simply send them a link to this post with a message like, “Hey, honeeeeey … I know how hard it can be to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. So if you’re looking for ideas, here ya go! … P.S. You might want to order these, like, NOW. Mmmkay, love youuuuu!”

Yes, the big day may be just a little over a week away, but there’s still time to find that perfect present if you act FAST.

Whether you’re hoping to give or get one of these gifts, here are 10 romantic last-minute gift ideas — in case you need a little help.

An eternal rose

Want to feel like a Disney princess AND save a little money on those V-day flowers? Forget that bouquet of roses that wilts after two days — this 100% real rose comes specially preserved behind a beautiful glass dome and lasts for 3 to 5 years. 

With a variety of colors available and a 4.7-star average rating on Amazon, you really can’t go wrong with this one. (Unless, of course, you make the mistake of assuming this means you don’t need to buy your valentine anything else for the next 3 to 5 years…)

A cute and modest new Valentine’s Day dress

When’s the last time you said, “Um, no thanks, I DON’T want a beautiful new dress. But thank you!” Yeah… we didn’t think so.

Ladies. Love. Dresses. They just do. Especially when those dresses are not only cute, but they’re comfortable and made from high-quality fabrics that love you right back.

Any of these stunning and modest Brigitte Brianna dresses are sure to please, but we’ve highlighted a few of them on our Valentine’s Day outfit guide from last week.

Of course, if you’re not a dress gal (and no shame if you’re not), there are plenty of tops, bottoms, and accessories out there to make all your Valentine’s dreams come true.

A heavenly soft blanket 

Give the gift of luxurious comfort this Valentine’s Day! These plush and cozy blankets from Minky Couture are perfect for a movie night at home or a romantic getaway under the stars. It’s the closest thing to a wearable hug you can get. (That’s right, Snuggie. You heard us.) 

One word of caution: Your valentine may be more in love with this blanket than with you after you give it to them. 

A SexyModest robe in any color

Brigitte Brianna Luxury Robe in White

Keeping with the comfort theme, we’ve GOT to include the Brigitte Brianna Luxury Robe, which comes in 8 different colors — including the gorgeous new white version!

Yes, we saw the SNL skit about robes too, but this is no ordinary robe. Its silky-soft, buttery fabric feels like heaven on your skin while still keeping you covered and SexyModest.

If you really want to level up your gifting game, try combining this beauty with some bath bombs or candles and you’ve got yourself the ultimate Valentine’s Day home run.

Two tickets to paradise

This one really swings for the fence, but if you manage to pull it off, you will officially be crowned the winner of Valentine’s Day.

Imagine the look on your sweetheart’s face when you slide an envelope across the dinner table that contains a couple of airplane tickets to a sunny getaway destination for two! (Just the thought of it makes your heart flutter, doesn’t it?)

Of course, you’ll want to be careful with this one. Coordinating schedules, making sure you’ve got the PTO (and the money)... these are all good things to plan for ahead of time.

But if your circumstances allow, we say DO IT. Carpe that Diem and hit the road. You won’t regret it!

Brigitte Brianna Tote Bag

If you DO plan to travel anytime soon, then you’ll probably need a tote bag that can keep up. Well, the Brigitte Brianna Tote Bag is a gal-on-the-go’s best friend. So what makes this tote stand apart from your average, run-of-the-mill bags?

In the words of one reviewer, “The tote is well made, but the game changer for me is the pockets. They are perfectly accessible for phone, keys and sanitizer and the rest of the bag is huge and open. Other totes do not have these pockets.”

Besides that, it’s “totes adorbs.” (We had to. Sorry if you threw up a little.)

A couples massage

Look — winter is stressful enough without throwing a global pandemic on top of everything. You might think this is a cliché gift, but if ever there was a good time to get a massage, it’s NOW.

To take it one step further on the romantic scale, try a couples massage. Plus, experts say that a good massage releases oxytocin (a.k.a. “the love hormone”) into your bloodstream...

Doesn’t hurt to stoke those flames of affection a little!

Date Night in a Box

Finding it hard to carve out time for just the two of you these days? Well, you can start bringing the fun to YOU with this gift. 

Even before people were spending an inordinate amount of time in their homes, lots of couples started trying out this “Date Night in a Box” idea — and it actually sounds like fun! (Think of it as something similar to Brig’s “Favorite Things” subscription -- but for couples.) 

Several companies have jumped on the “date in a box” bandwagon, so depending on your interests, you might want to shop around for the type that best suits you and your partner. 

This is a good one for couples with kids, couples who lack fresh dating ideas, or couples with agoraphobia.

Hunt a Killer

If you’re the type of person who gags at all the lovey-dovey stuff, but you and your sweetheart sure love a good murder mystery, then here’s a good alternative to the date box idea. (We can’t promise it’s the more *romantic* option, but hey — to each her own.)

The Hunt a Killer box is “like an escape room delivered to your door every month.” You’ll sort through the evidence, decode ciphers, and piece together clues to solve the crime — but it’s not for the faint of heart. You have to take a short quiz to see if you qualify.

Brigitte Brianna Cosmetic Case

When you give the gift of the Brigitte Brianna Cosmetic Case, you’re not just saying, “Hey, I heard you like makeup -- here’s a bag!” 

You’re saying, “Hey. Let me make your life 5,000 times easier by presenting you with the cutest, most functional, versatile and easy-to-clean high-quality vegan leather case that will make all of your cosmetic dreams come true. ...Also, I love you.” 

It’s a pretty powerful statement, but this cosmetic case says it all.

Of course, if you want to fill it with 100% made in the USA, paraben-free, cruelty-free, gluten-free makeup, then you will have achieved perfection.

What do you think?

We feel fairly confident that every woman out there will enjoy at least ONE thing from this list. (Pro tip: it's also a good idea to include chocolate in some form.)
