I've always been a gift-giver. Growing up, I was a proud owner of You're Invited to Mary Kate & Ashley's Christmas Party and their song "Giving is Getting" totally changed my life — I distinctly remember listening to it and thinking, "it is better to give than to receive! They're right!" So basically, I've been training for last-minute Valentine's Gift ideas my entire life.
Valentine's Day is meant to bring you and your partner closer together, but sometimes, the stress of planning the perfect date and finding a thoughtful gift can actually pull people apart. In the midst of busy day-to-day schedules, work projects, and unideal weather, people often find themselves in a bit of pickle: it's a day or two before, and the bottom drawer where you usually hide your partner's Valentine's Day gift is still completely empty.
Luckily, there are plenty of quality last-minute gifts out there you can get your significant other for Valentine's Day, from a craft beer-making kit to Kama Sutra massage oils to a USB that's in the shape of a mix tape. And even better, all of the thoughtful items on the list below are time-sensitive (aka rush delivery), cost-effective, and guaranteed to make your significant other swoon.
