Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gifts, Including Cheese Straws!

Posted on

Yes, it’s true — Valentine’s Day is right around the corner… er, we mean, it’s tomorrow. Already it feels like 2018 has flown by. We’re midway through February and the token day of love is but a few hours away! Perhaps this year has been so crazy for you already, and you feel like we were just ringing in the New Year yesterday. Not knowing exactly where we are in the years results in one thing: not remembering important dates. Yes, we mean Valentine’s Day. If you have felt like you’ve been on a time crunch since January 1, 2018, chances are you didn’t see February 14th sneak up on your so fast. Maybe you haven’t had the time to plan any elaborate Valentine’s Day plans, or perhaps you and your significant other have postponed the celebrations for the upcoming weekend when you both can carve out some time for each other from your busy schedules.

And we get it. Life can become overwhelming and busy, and sometimes within the chaos we forget to show the one we love that we, well, love them! But whatever your (last minute) plans are this year, whether you’re choosing to celebrate on a later date or are going to get dinner and exchange gifts on Wednesday, it’s important to show up with something meaningful to give the one you love.

But before you get nervous and think we’re suggesting you go out and purchase the biggest diamond earrings you can find, let’s be clear about one thing — we completely understand that life can get hectic, so we’re choosing to celebrate love with small, meaningful gifts this year. Even if you pick up a good bottle of wine and treat your significant other to a home cooked meal, they will greatly appreciate the gesture and enjoy the time with you just the same.

So without further ado, here are a few last minute gift ideas to treat the one you love to a simple, yet incredibly meaningful Valentine’s Day.

Bouquet Of Flowers

Frankly, you don’t want to show up to any Valentine’s Day celebration without a handful of flowers. When it comes down to it, it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t appreciate a large bouquet of blooms. That said, this year we’re encouraging you to push the envelope and find some perfect petals that aren’t red roses. Sure, red roses are romantic, sweet, and a true staple on February 14th, but treat your special someone to something a bit more unique, like beautiful lilies or even roses in a different color!

A Handwritten Letter

Few things are as meaningful and endearing as receiving a handwritten letter. And this is the perfect gift to give if you are feeling pressed for time. Find a beautiful card that they will love and take 10 minutes to share their love and appreciation for them in your life. The thoughtfulness behind this gesture will be remembered for years to come. 

Cheese Straws

Yes, you read that right. While your mind may not immediately jump to “cheese straws” when you think of a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift, think again! When it comes to gifts, the best ones are the ones that are edible. And instead of settling for another box of chocolate (you can buy chocolate, too!), add a twist and order them a tin of cheese straws from 350° Cheese Straws. The best thing about gifting cheese straws is that you can gift them at any time, before or after Valentine’s Day, whereas receiving a heart-shaped box of chocolates is only applicable within a few days of February 14th.

If you’re choosing to celebrate Valentine’s Day on a later date, invite our cheese straws to the festivities. Trust us, you won’t regret it. Order a tin of cheese straws today!
