Finding the perfect gift for your boyfriend, husband or secret love can be a challenging task, especially when time is not on your side. 

Let's explore creative and thoughtful last-minute gift ideas that are sure to put a smile on your boo's face.

Here is the ultimate list for you:
  • Build a basket 

Head down to your local store and pick out some of your partner's favourite items. Double brownie points if it’s red, white or pink, sticking with the Valentine's Day theme. Choose all of their favourite things to add to this basket 

  • Something practical that he wouldn’t buy for himself 

From robes to water bottles and even a great beard trimmer. Getting your partner something that will make their life a little easier will go a long way in warming their heart on the day of love.
