Last-Minute Valentine's Day Gifts That Are Actually So Sweet

Trying to find a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift that is seemingly thoughtful, unique, and um, not like you didn’t buy it a day before February 14 is nothing short of a challenge. But just because you’re running short on time, doesn’t mean you have to skimp out on the quality and creativity required for a gift when it comes to your Significant Other. So, here’s our (very useful) list of the top 10 romantic gifts you can buy within a day:

The Maeva Store

Whether it’s to create a soothing spa-at-home atmosphere or to set the ambience for a cosy night-in, scented candles from The Maeva Store are a fail-safe gift idea for your partner. The brand goes beyond just flirty rose-scents for V-Day. You also have these floater candles that you can put into a small pool or glass bowl and have them float around!

The Flora

This floral delivery service is your saving grace. No, really. You don’t even have to make the effort of going to their store. Just place an order and in a day, they’ll send across an artisanal arrangement that features lilac lilies, bright yellow sunflowers, deep red roses, fresh ferns, and whatnot. 

Jeweller's Street

On one of the bylanes of Commercial Street (aka Jeweller’s Street), an entire row of shops is dedicated to selling and polishing silver and gold jewellery. Statement pieces, that go perfectly with a formal dress or even a saree, can also be found easily here too. You can pick from their catalogue or if you have a particular design in mind, you can ask them to custom make it for you, and they’ll do it in minutes!

Quirq Station

Load up on cuteness and quirk at Quirq Station. Whether it’s a punny card from Card Affairs (Yoda One For Me is our favourite!), animal planters or a set of cute coasters, shop for anything from here and we're sure it'll make your Valentine's Day extra special.

Happy Belly Bakes

If bae has a sweet tooth, surprise them with Nutella cake, nama chocolates, chocolate eclairs and/or truffles from Happy Belly Bakes. And if you have room for more make the tough decisions of trying one of their cake pops, Nutella cakes, Belgian truffle cakes, lemon tarts, or one of each for the road!

Fresh & Handcrafted

There’s no such thing as too much beauty booty. So if you want to give your girlfriend a dose of all things cute and pretty, go for customised handmade artisan soaps and lotions from Fresh & Handcrafted. You can also get your own soap made with ingredients, colours, and fragrance of your choice. Their cupcake soaps are pretty and it's hard to not eat them (Don't eat them!). 


Finger Krafts

If you’re looking for the perfect symbol of love for gifting your significant other, Finger Krafts in Vega City is the answer to your prayers. The casting takes only about a minute and can be collected an hour after the moulding. Enough time to go on a movie date, too!

For the couch potato, they have the junk food hamper loaded with all things yummy. Personalized wine bottle labels, quirky shot glasses, chocolate wrappers, dare cards and gift hampers are also things they have on offer!

Coko Store

If bae is obsessed with the new wave of East Asian stores in town, head to Coko Store and pick something up. Plush animal-themed backpacks, bags, lunch boxes and books, their products look like they’ve jumped straight out of a Manga, or Anime series. Staying reasonable, they also have accessories like pins, badges, name tags and hair accessories that are cute just because they can be! You can’t go wrong with this one.
