With Valentine’s Day a week away, you’re officially a procrastinator. Sure, a last-minute box of chocolates and roses make fine gifts, but there are some alternatives that are far more thoughtful. We’ve put together an exhaustive list of where (and when) you can get the best last-minute gifts. Read on for Michelle Obama–approved jewelry, luxe robes, and more — all which will arrive perfectly in time (or even early!).

These silver-and-gold-plated hoops from Bychari, a brand approved by Oprah and Michelle Obama, come in multiple sizes for lightweight layering, or you can channel Sade with a singular pair. We suggest the large hoops, which are just over two inches.

Free expedited shipping and $24 next-day shipping.

Consider this Skims dress, which has gone viral multiple times on TikTok. (And close to 500 five-star reviews confirm that it’s not just TikTok hype.) It’s often sold out but is still available now in a variety of colors and sizes.

$12 for two-business-day shipping or $20 for next-business-day shipping.

A gift that says you wouldn’t mind kisses.

Free delivery with Amazon Prime.

Friday, February 10, is the last day you can order from Catbird to have gifts arrive via UPS standard shipping. Fans of Catbird’s delicate fine jewelry will love this swan ring dish. Layer rings onto the neck of the solid brass swan or fill the holder with teeny chains and pendants.

Sticking to the classics? The Bouqs Next Day selection is filled with bouquets that will still arrive on time and steal anybody’s heart.

Next-day delivery on select items if order is placed by noon.

For lovers of all things tiny and dainty, this delicate under-$20 necklace makes the perfect gift. The minimal necklace is gold-plated brass and has racked up thousands of five-star reviews for its surprisingly good quality at such a low price. You can gift one with their initials, yours, or both.

Free one-day delivery with Amazon Prime.

The exercise dress gets a V-Day update with a psychedelic pink-marble print. They can wear it layered for an outdoors outfit or by itself indoors for their favorite YouTube workout video.

Any frequent shopper at knows (and has used multiple times) its convenient delivery options. Depending on the product and location, some items are available for same-day delivery or in-store pickup. We recommend this affordable and luxe pear-blossom fragrance with notes of white musk and apple wood that can be layered with other scents.

Same-day delivery or in-store pickup for select locations. 

When Rihanna said Savage X Fenty was for everyone, she really meant it. Among the lacy lingerie and everyday not-so-basic basics, there is a selection of boxers, briefs, and satin pieces to gift the guy in your life. Since comfort is for everyone, we suggest this smoking jacket in red. It’s available in sizes XS to 3X.

There’s probably no better way to store jewelry than in this small velvet jewelry box. While it comes in a handful of colors, we recommend red. The velvet and satin interior is perfect for storing their jewelry or gifting them something new.

Next-business-day shipping for a flat rate of $25 and same-day shipping in NYC and surrounding areas for $25.

From $40

A very condensed (and chic) “bouquet” of roses.

Something you both can enjoy: same-day delivery for champagne. There are many bubbly options on Drizly, but we recommend this holiday-appropriate rosé.

If there were ever a time to splurge on silky and lacy pieces, it would be now. Consider these very fancy pajamas from La Perla — available in three shades fit for the holiday. They’re made of silk satin and are soft and, of course, luxurious.

Free two-day shipping with ShopRunner ($79 membership) or free with select accounts including PayPal and American Express.

If your valentine loves taking a bath, they’ll like adding these CBD bath salts to their bathing ritual. Plus these won’t leave a ring in the bathtub, freeing them from the anxiety of thinking about cleanup.

For your tech-savvy valentine, Sony’s highly reviewed noise-canceling headphones will arrive this weekend with Amazon Prime. The wireless over-ear headphones have a built-in mic for phone (and Zoom) calls and playlists. With up to 30 hours of battery life, they can do it all.

Free delivery with Amazon Prime.

These shoes are beloved by celebs like Meghan Markle and Katie Holmes, because they go with pretty much everything. While you might be tempted to gift the classic Campo style, your stylish valentine probably owns them already. Opt for this flannel pair made from lightweight and recycled materials.

Available same-day with curbside pickup at select stores.

This massager will soothe your valentine’s sore muscles when you’re not around.

Nothing says “I love you” like a hand-crocheted cap.
