7 Last-Minute Valentine's Day Gifts



While chocolates and flowers are welcome tokens of affection any day of the year, Valentine's Day requires a little more thought and investment than a last-minute trip to the bodega.
But, as it happens, the holiday has snuck up on us again. Don't have a gift for your special someone, or want to snag a present for yourself? (We're not judging!)
We picked our favorite last-minute gifts for V-day. (Just remember, overnight shipping does wonders.)

Valentino Mini VaVaVoom Leather Shoulder Bag

This lipstick-red bag is a treat, no matter the giver. Studs and gold hardware give the classic silhouette a downtown edge, even if uptown's more your scene. Use it as a clutch or sling it over your shoulder (more optimal for hand holding, we say).

We'll never turn any gift from the iconic British brand away, but jewelry specifically we greet with open, enthusiastic arms.
