Last-Minute Valentine's Day Gifts That Will Save Your (S)ass

Swamped with work and forgot to plan and buy gifts for your loved one? You don’t need to, just chill and choose one of these last-minute Valentine's Day gifts for bae. You’re welcome! 

Sweeten The Day

Make this V-day literally sweet with pastries and desserts! You can get a liquor cake customised from Sugar Brush or get cutesy cupcakes made by these home bakers and best cake shops in Chennai. We bet a serious sugar rush will make them forget the fact that you actually missed buying them presents for V-day! 

Hook Them With A Book

If your significant other loves books, get them some of the rarest books from Rare Books, a tiny yet adorable library operating out of a garage. You can even blindfold them and take them there for a date - bookish yes, but super cute. Shop books from one of these lending libraries and give them something they'll definitely cherish.
