Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Everyone loves throwing shade at Valentine’s Day.  It’s easy to claim that you want to skip the entire celebration (“who needs a commercial holiday to tell your lover she’s adored?”).  News flash: you are in denial that you’re about to dig deep into your wallet and shell out some pre-coital coin for Valentine’s Day booty. Despite the verbal agreement that you are “just doing cards this year” it's time to admit the truth, that she’s expecting some tangible representation of your affection. 

These last minute gifts are splendid surprises to ignite some Valentine's Day mojo that we promise your lover will love.
