12 Last-Minute Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Her
This year, Valentine’s Day lands two days after the Super Bowl, meaning it’s probably best to sort out a gift for your S.O before the big game.
That is, if you’re invested in both the outcome, and the longevity of your relationship.
So, listen very carefully when I say this:
Women do not want heart-shaped jewelry from the chain store at the mall from their boyfriends and husbands.
Not for Valentine’s Day, not for Christmas, not for their birthday…okay, you get the point.
Great! Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about what womwn really want.
Personally, I would like my boyfriend to yell at a slightly lower decibel while playing Xbox after 10 p.m., but in lieu of that, a fun and romantic present will be welcome.
And before you come for me…if you and your significant other don’t want to do gifts because Valentine’s Day is a dumb corporate holiday invented to promote materialism, fine! If you’re single, no worries!
But my love language after Words Of Affirmation is Gift Giving, so I’m all about showing affection with a little something special for my guy, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with hoping for the same thought and intention in return.
Whew! Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. Where was I?
If you are in need of a last-minute present for your longtime love or freshly official boo, I’ve racked up a list of fool-proof gifts for a very special V-Day.
Below, 12 last-minute Valentine’s Day gift ideas for her:
1. Skims robe
It’s 2023, so I don’t have to tell you we’ve moved beyond sexy lingerie for Valentine’s Day, right?
Instead, help your girl get cozy as hell on V-day with a soft, comfortable robe.
Say what you want about Kim K., but everything I hear about this robe is that it feels like you’re wrapped up in a cloud when wearing it.
Which is why this has been on my wishlist for the last year (someone tell my fiancé please).
2. Slip pillowcase
Help her banish bedhead with this silk pillowcase from Slip.
3. Best Self couples intimacy deck
The prompts in this card deck are meant to help you and your S.O. connect with one another.
Great for spending quality time together when you’re done scrolling TikTok on the couch side by side.
4. Beis Weekender tote
The best gift you can get your S.O. that they may never ask for is a weekender bag.

8. Naadam Cashmere heart set
Remember what I said about not wanting heart-shaped jewelry? Stay with me here: that doesn’t apply to clothes.
There’s something sweet about an understated heart print, especially on cashmere!
Oh, and there’s matching socks, too!
9. Bogart Smoke and Roll Pack
If smoking is or used to be a part of your lady’s lifestyle, consider gifting her this new brand of high-CBD, low-THC cigarette-style smokes.
Hollow tip filters give them the smooth pull of a pre roll with the classic hand-feel of a cigarette.
10. Art Deco coffee table book
Want to move away from clothes and accessories? A beautiful coffee table book always makes a great gift.
The Art Deco book is a perfect neutral, so it will likely look great on any book shelf or coffee table.
Plus, it’s a great conversation piece. When you get sick of looking at the same four walls, you can dream about where you’d like to live next!
11. Savage Lovecast “Magnum” subscription
If your love loves podcasts, consider upgrading her favorite to a premium subscription.
She’ll get access to bonus episodes, maybe a Discord server where she can chat with other fans of the show, and more.
There’s plenty of podcasts that offer higher tier offerings, like Dan Savage’s Lovecast, all about sex and relationships (perfect for V-Day!).
12. Alexa Leigh black heart bracelet
Keep the gushy romance stuff at bay and opt instead for a fun beaded piece.
