Valentine’s Day isn’t just “around the corner” anymore – it’s tomorrow. So there’s not a lot of time left for making plans, picking out that perfect gift and finding a card that conveys just the right message and emotion. But even though you have less than 24 hours left (and counting!), it’s not too late. Here are some last-minute gift and travel ideas that are so good, your special someone will think you’ve been planning it for weeks!

Last-minute getaways


Nothing says romance like a quiet getaway for two in a luxury hotel suite. Believe it or not, these great rooms aren’t all booked up yet – there are plenty of great getaways still available at affordable prices on Hotel Tonight. Want to go the extra mile? Hotel Tonight has even more luxurious “Highroller” rooms that include over-the-top suites, penthouses and private villas. We’re not talking about motels off the interstate here – these are seriously fancy getaways with stunning views, spa-like amenities, wet bars and more. 

If you’re not impressed with Hotel Tonight’s selection, why not try to put together a last-minute getaway of your own? Check out Expedia’s last-minute deals page for some great hotel and travel deals. Leave the snow behind for a quick getaway to a Cancun resort, a four-star Miami hotel or a Puerto Rican golf resort. 

Last-minute Gifts

Amazon Prime Now

If you live in a major city like New York, one of the best places to find a last-minute gift is Amazon. The company offers free 2-hour delivery for Prime members in 10,000 cities between the hours of 8AM and midnight or one-hour delivery for $7.99. Live in a different city? No sweat – Postmates and Instacart all offer same-day delivery in cities across the country.

If same-day delivery is not an option, check out the unique Giftly gift card service. The app allows you to pick a gift for someone from any store or online shop and send a notification immediately to your loved one. They then choose how they want to receive the gifted funds (credit card or PayPal.) Then when they go to buy the item or service gifted, the amount of the purchase is immediately credited to their card or PayPal account.

Because the merchant isn't involved, you can gift anything from any shop or online merchant that accepts credit cards or PayPal. Dinner and a movie? Airfare and casino chips? Spa day with mani-pedi? Giftly has you covered. Just make sure the recipient doesn't try to use a debit card.

Not great at picking out gifts yourself? Take a look at MySubscriptionAddiction. The company offers a directory of gift box subscription services, including a whole section on Valentine's Day gift ideas.  

Last-minute Cards

JibJab Valentine's Day

Let’s be honest: e-cards aren’t for everyone. But if your Valentine has the right attitude (or if you’re snowed in and can’t get to the Hallmark store), you might want to create a humorous video card on starring you and your partner. And if you’re really cheeky (or just looking for something fun to post to your Valentine’s Facebook wall), check out the brutally funny selection at Someecards.

For a more serious e-card, you might want to take a look at the selection at Punchbowl. You can choose from one of their pre-existing designs or add your own photo to create something unique. What we really like about Punchbowl, though, is the ability to add a gift card from popular retailers like Amazon, Sephora or Home Depot.

This is a conversation you need to have with your wife

From Josh Kirschner on February 16, 2019 :: 12:36 pm

You need to have a conversation with your wife about why she thinks you’re doing these things. From there, you can figure out what is actually going on. Is it possible someone is pretending to be you on these various accounts? Sure. Is it possible there isn’t anything going on and she’s using this as an excuse to get out of a marriage she’s not happy in? Maybe. Without more info, there’s no way to resolve this.
