By now, most people have their Valentine’s Day shopping taken care of. Not you. You like to live on the edge. It’s okay. We’ve all been there. Sometimes, the most romantic time of the year can be overwhelming. Luckily, I’ve put together this list for last-minute gift-givers like you. With gifts this good, they’ll never know you waited until the last minute. The best part? You’ll get rewarded with Cash Back from Ebates while shopping for all the best products.
A gift card through Ebates
If you waited until the last minute to shop for that special someone, a gift card is the safe choice. You can get a gift card from just about any retailer, but you’ll also earn Cash Back if you buy one with Ebates. Who doesn’t love getting paid to procrastinate?
I discovered these chocolates when I lived in Los Angeles, and I have been hooked ever since. There is a lot of chocolate floating around during this time of year, but few will come close to the taste of John Kelly Chocolates. It’s the truffle fudge in the center and the sea salt sprinkled on top that makes them so special. Tell your recipient to enjoy a thin slice with a glass of wine or champagne. They’ll thank you later.
Hess is a world-class winery in the hills of Napa Valley, California. All of the wines from the estate are fantastic, but Allomi is truly something special. Not to mention the price point is spot on for a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift. It’s the wine I reach for most often, and it never disappoints.
Need an easy gift for a coffee or tea lover in your life? Make it Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. They offer a huge selection, fast shipping and discounts if you’re ordering in bulk. Your Valentine will think of you each time they take a sip.
This little bottle is full of stress-relief magic, and it’s a perfect last-minute gift idea. It contains a blend of essential oils, including peppermint and eucalyptus, that’ll help your Valentine combat all of life’s stressors. Origins recommends applying it to your neck, earlobes or temples, but I like to rub a little between my fingers and breathe in and out a few times. Instant relaxation.
When it comes to last-minute gift ideas, a massage is an obvious choice. Go above and beyond with a float therapy session, which I think is far more relaxing than a massage. It’s also a unique experience. You literally float in a tank of shallow epsom salt water for an hour at a time. The salt is said to draw toxins out of your body, and the isolation from the outside world helps to calm your nerves. Try Groupon and LivingSocial for great deals on a float therapy session.
If you’re really in a pinch for a last-minute gift, lottery tickets are the way to go. You can buy them at almost any convenience store, and the various price points work for any budget. Just be sure to make a pact with your Valentine to split the winnings if they hit it big.
