The Best Valentine's Day Gifts

Updated on April 17, 2011

Don't wait until the last minute to buy your loved one a special Valentine's Day gift. Red roses are cliche and overpriced if you order the week before the big day. A box of chocolates, even Godiva chocolates, isn't going to make a good impression. It's easy to buy a great gift, if you use your imagination a bit and plan ahead.

Try something different this year. Just not a Snuggie.

A spa visit is always appreciated, and they all have gift certificates. There are too many treatments and kinds of spas to mention, but there's one that will fit your budget if you look. Gift certificates can be done for massages, facials, pedicures, a "day of beauty" with multiple treatments, or you can choose a specific price point gift card, so that you can choose the amount and then he or she can choose the service. That's right ––real men get massages. Your man loves you to rub his back, why not let a professional do it for you?

Kick up you heels!
Dance lessons. Everyone hates to be the wallflower couple at the wedding because they feel like 4 left feet on the dance floor. Lessons are fun, they burn calories, they give you a regular "date night" to look forward to, and at the next big party you'll impress everyone with your waltz, foxtrot, swing, tango, or disco moves. Look in your area for a studio--lots of them have customized programs, and many are inexpensive.

It's the thought that counts
Something handmade. Even if it isn't handmade by you, something unique makes the gift feel more heartfelt, and if it brings back a special memory for the two of you, so much the better. A handmade gift can be easier to make than you think, no matter how craft-y you are. Gift baskets can be personalized as well.

Unique Gifts
There are great sites that offer funny, unique and offbeat gifts, uncommon gifts, "of the month club " gifts that keep on giving throughout the year, or for a few month period. If you have the money, there are luxury gifts, unique gifts and opulent gifts. And sites that offer a bevy of gifts at all prices. A personalized gift is meaningful, but please for the love of God, no coffee mugs.

You don't have to make it look like you stopped by the local Walmart to get a last minute gift because you forgot all about him or her until after work. Mark your calendar, February 14 is approaching!
