This year, Valentine’s Day lands three 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 at the holidays, not for her 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 always 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 2024, 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 this robe gives “wrapped up in a cloud” vibes when wearing it, and really, what more could you want for your lady love?

2. Slip pillowcase

Help her banish bedhead with a silk pillowcase. Heck, get yourself a matching one while you’re at it!

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 partner that they may never ask for is a weekender bag.

This one, from Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell’s brand Béis, looks chic and has a pocket on the back that fits over your luggage handle.

Warning: Will induce wanderlust, so get ready to plan a trip sometime soon.

5. Etsy Female Body candle

This candle is definitely a that girl favorite.

Plus, you’re supporting an independent artisan on Etsy!

6. Christian Dior Lip Glow Oil

Show her you listen when she tells you about the beauty trends going viral on TikTok.

This lip oil has been viewed over 1 million times on the app, so it’s clearly got something going for it.

7. Byredo Gypsy Water

Byredo is best known for its bougie af candles and perfumes, like this super-sexy scent with notes of notes of bergamot, lemon, pepper and juniper berries.

Plus, it will look so chic on her nightstand. Total no-brainer.

8. Old Navy pajama 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 cute and comfortable matching pajamas.

9. Etsy Valentine’s Day card

You don’t have to break the bank on Valentine’s Day.

She’ll appreciate a cute card that you didn’t get at the drugstore, especially if there’s a sweet, thoughtfully-considered message on the inside.

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. Nike Dunk sneakers

If your love loves sneakers, consider gifting her a new pair in Valentine’s shades.

12. Shashi ‘Eros’ bracelet

Keep the gushy romance stuff at bay and opt instead for a subtle piece of jewelry.

This chain bracelet is the perfect layering piece and super trendy right now.
