Top Five Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gifts

You had a brief period of anti-establishment attitude this week, but now you’re thinking, well, maybe it wouldn’t hurt to get my darling a little something. You don’t want to be one of the schmucks who pays $60 for some roses (my first job was at a flower shop, the inflation on V-Day is CRIMINAL), or some drugstore teddy bear holding a balloon.

5. Plush Heart

Best if accompanied by a themed mixtape. Get the guts at

4. Board Game

Because sometimes, it’s okay to leave the internet and do real life things.

3. Food

People like to be fed–it’s one of those primal needs, you know? But good luck trying to go out or wrestle a reservation. Just have a picnic. PB&J, chocolate milk, and animals crackers? Or maybe grilled cheese and tomato soup? Even works for people in blizzards, because picnics can be done indoors. Just find some audio of birds chirping or something.

2. Headphones

Always welcome from music lovers, right? You need some for work and some for school and some comfy enough to wear as you fall asleep at night–so really, can anyone have too many pairs? If all else fails, they can just lay around and LOOK cool. There’s about a million different colors and styles to choose from at Karmaloop.

1. The Sims 3 and High End Loft Stuff Pack

You wish you could wow your boyfriend with a new TV or an iPhone or something shiny and in-demand… but like, who has the bucks for that? Do the next best thing. Get them The Sims 3 and they can pimp out their virtual world. The special 10th Anniversary gift pack includes three coveted items from The Sims and The Sims 2 games: The heart shaped vibrating bed, the electric guitar, and the aquarium.

Heart-shaped vibrating bed. Like you’re ever gonna see one of those and real life unless you forsee yourself on “The 20th Shot at Love with Tila Tequila.”

Happy Valentine’s Day, loves! Hope it’s a good one 🙂
