Run out of Valentine’s Day gift ideas? Flowers too cliche for your liking? Or, let’s be real, you almost forgot that Valentine’s Day is coming up. Don’t panic; it’s not too late to pick up a gift that is well-thought-out.

Or if you’re reading this after February 14, they make pretty great make up gifts, too.





Give A (Unique) Bouquet of Roses

Eau Rose Solid Perfume, Eau Rose Hand and Body Lotion, Damascena Candle, and Eau Rose Hair Mist available at Diptyque, R1 Level

While nothing beats receiving fresh roses, Diptyque has blessed our olfactory systems with what could be the next best thing: a rose collection. The Paris-based fragrance house picked the most sublime roses from the French Riviera and Persia, and bottled them up as stylish scents. We couldn’t have asked for a better floral arrangement!

Make New Memories

Jo Malone, R1 Level

Scents trigger vivid memories. This year, why not use this scientific knowledge to associate a bottle of Jo Malone with fond memories of Valentine’s Day 2019? Just don’t forget to plan something fun or romantic to go with the scent. This combo is a surefire way to leave an indelible mark on your Valentine.

Write Love Notes

Kate Spade New York, R1 Level

Writing letters is a lost art. Bring it back to life this Valentine’s Day and stash handwritten love notes in, say, a red bag from Kate Spade New York. You’ll be giving more than just a bag. Think of it as a romantic gesture; an elaborate envelope for love notes and other sweet nothings. Or a lot of sweet somethings. (Yes, we mean chocolate.)

Any of these gifts say “I love you”, but only you can add a personal touch to make it unique and thoughtful.

Still looking for traditional fare like flowers, balloons, and sweets? Check out the Gift and Flower Fair at Truly, Madly, Deeply: A Power Plant Mall Valentine’s Day Celebration from February 8-14, 2019.
