Last-Minute Valentine's Gifts With Next Day Delivery

13 February 2018


Oh, the panic of having to buy a last-minute gift - whether it's your long-term girlfriend announcing "we're doing more than just cards this year, right?" despite you both JUST DOING CARDS for the past six years, or a new love interest you began seeing at the start of February dropping "I can't wait for you to open your present!" when you've got them precisely nada... we've all been there!

In the case that you're in a similar situation right now (or you simply forgot - don't worry, I won't tell) then you're in luck, as I've compiled a gorgeous guide and ensured that every item is available with next day delivery, along with an Instagram story packed full of extremely cute V-Day cards that you can write sweet nothings in.

£10 and under
Of course you don't have to spend a penny to make someone smile and feel special, but if you would like to get them a nice gift then that doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg either. I'd highly recommend checking out Jayne Tapp Design for personalised keepsakes - this The Day We First Met wooden card is such a sentimental gift that can be cherished forever. These adorable little Map In A Bottle keepsakes are under a tenner and are guaranteed to win you a big 'awww!' when your partner opens it up to see a tiny piece of vintage map that details a memorable location of your relationship.

Being in love does often feel like you and your significant other are in a little gang together, so why not celebrate that friendship with these Awesome People Club trinket dish and socks? If you live together, these marble and copper alphabet coasters with the initials of your names would be the perfect place to put your mugs of coffee when you're curled up on the sofa together watching Breaking Bad. If your wrapping skills need more than a day to nail, Oliver Bonas also offer gift boxes for £5.

If your favourite human is an avid reader and you'd like to give them a more love-focused book, This Modern Love by Will Darbyshire is a number one bestselling compendium of 21st century love and Love Notes by Tyler Knott Gregson is a simple and beautiful paperback of typewritten romantic poetry.

Are they a beauty addict? You won't go far wrong with any of these: Crabtree & Evelyn Rose Hand Therapy for hands you'll want to hold for even longer, Glossier Balm Dot Com in 'Rose' or 'Cherry' for lips you'll want to kiss even more frequently and the Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb from the LUSH Valentines range for... having a bath together, pretty much. Giant version here! On the subject of Glossier (get 10% off here), I have to mention the You fragrance as they have truly blessed us with the most sexy, salty and addictive scent - it's verging on an aphrodisiac and they've just launched a solid version, too.

£30 and under
Personalisation adds such a special touch, and Lisa Angel have such a beautiful range of jewellery - my favourite is either the Sterling Silver Interlocking Circles Necklace or the Beaded Bar Bracelet, both of which you can add your own touch to. Use code 'MEGSAYS15' for 15% off until the 28th February 2018 online or in-store (there are two in Norwich here, definitely give them a visit!)

How amazing would it be if you could see a map of the night sky at the exact pinpoint instant that you and your love met? Look no further - Posterhaste create Personalised Constellation Maps to commemorate a place, date and time along with a message of your choice. You'll need to order an unframed poster to ensure that it arrives in time, so use Valentine's Day Eve to pop into town and get it framed if you can - it'll look gorgeous mounted on the wall, there to remind you both of that fateful moment in time!

Everyone loves a good date night, but if dinner then the cinema is getting a little tired - can't believe I actually just typed that, dinema is the best - then perhaps consider giving the gift of inspiration with these 52 Date Night Cards. These cards feature date night ideas from the adventurous (go for a drive, making only left turns until you reach somewhere interesting) to the naughty-but-nice (pretend to be strangers at a bar) to the cute (go out for dinner and only eat dessert)... simple, and a great way of spending quality time together.

Seeing as lingerie is usually a classic go-to for this particular holiday I didn't feel this post was complete without! The best of the best are Agent Provocateur and Victoria's Secret, however if you're looking for a nice set under £30 then head to Freya Lingerie or Boux Avenue - they're currently running an offer for a free pair of knickers with a matching bra, so you can treat yourselves to this super pretty red Chloe set for just £26.

The Ted Baker Pretty Pearl collection is currently on a 3 for 2 offer at Boots so you can get the Body SoufflĂ©, the Body Spray and the Body Wash and still have some change with a twenty. The Body SoufflĂ© is my personal favourite - it leaves the skin silky soft and smelling like roses! You can find Ted Baker's full Valentine's gift selection (for him, for her and for anyone) right here


£50 and under
I'm a firm believer that you can never go wrong with a candle, and the Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede Home Candle is one of the most deliciously romantic and warm scents out there. Jo Malone also do bespoke gifts which you can find here, and their Valentines selection is here. Another candle that I'm completely in love with at the moment is the Crabtree & Evelyn Home Comforts, it honestly smells so divine and inviting that I can't image anyone who wouldn't love it - Will is obsessed!

Fragrance is another 'always welcome' pressie, and the Guerlain Mon Guerlain Eau De Parfum is a real beauty. Inspired by Angelina Jolie, this floral and oriental scent is beautifully feminine and has all of my favourite notes - jasmine, vanilla, lavender and sandalwood. Escentual also stock the matching shower gel and body lotion, too.

A gift that keeps on giving is the Look Fantastic Beauty Box Subscription, as you can spend as little as £15 for a one-off box or closer to £40 for three months of sell-out beauty must-haves - who else can say that their other half got them a Valentine's Day present that's still arriving in the post weeks and weeks after February 14th? I go through the entire contents of an LF beauty box here if you're interested in reading more.

Last but not least is a Daniel Wellington watch, my personal pick is the Classic Petite Melrose, although they're currently running an offer where you get this super sweet heart charm when you purchase any leather watch - I'd go for the Classic Petite Sheffield.

There we have it! Whatever your budget, I hope this post helps you find the perfect present for the apple of your eye and that you have a wonderful Valentine's Day together. If you're like Will and I and you just do cards, head over to my Instagram and watch my story for lots of seriously cute card options. Peace and love!
