last minute Valentine

I’m not sure about you, but I’m still tired from Christmas. Just thinking about going big for another holiday makes me want to curl up for a nap. If you’re feeling the same way, I got you, girl. Check out a few of these easy last-minute Valentine ideas to make it as painless as possible. From cards and treats to send to school with your little ones to easy date ideas with your love.

Let’s start with my favorite last-minute go-to for all. the. things: Amazon. If you’re a fellow Amazon lover and Prime member, here are a few of my favorite heart-themed finds:

Now for the local-lovers quintessential flowers and sweet treats. If you’re a fan of a good subscription service and love having fresh blooms around, check-out (or give your partner a little hint hint to) The Little Posey. It’s an adorable weekly, monthly or quarterly subscription service for flowers of succulents in Central Austin. You can also send your favorite sweetie a delivery of the freshest blooms of the week for as low as $35.

And for the sweet treats, my go-to Austin-originals are an online (or app) order of Tiff’s Treats cookies or stopping by Chocolaterie Tessa for some hand-crafted, delicious chocolates. Tessa’s a fellow Austin mama herself and has an array of assorted boxes for the big day. I seriously have dreams about her salted caramels they’re so good.


And lastly, date night! My husband and I quit going out for dinner for Valentine’s dinner years ago. Between crowds, reservations and fancy price fixe menus, it wasn’t for us. Our tradition is to either roll sushi or cook dinner at home together. Costco always has great surf and turf deals on seafood and steaks and H-E-B sells everything you’ll need to make your own sushi. Another super easy idea is to use that free trial coupon you’ve got laying around for a meal delivery service like Blue Apron, Hello Fresh, etc. 

What other ideas do you have to keep Valentine’s Day easy breezy?
