The Best Picks for Last-Minute Valentine's Day Gifts, According to Celebrity Designers Bob and Cortney Novogratz
It seems like everyone’s always looking for last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts. If you’re anything like us, you roll into a few birthdays after the holidays, which are always the next focus. And between settling back into a work routine and getting kids into the groove again, Valentine’s Day gifts seem to be the last thing on our minds — until the day suddenly creeps up.
Robert and I have put together a few great gifts at all price ranges for couples of any age. Whether you have seven kids like us, or are just starting to build your lives together, here’s a fun list of ideas for your special someone.
1. Vinyl Me, Please Subscription, $100 for 3 Months, plus a $25 store credit
For the music lover, this cool gift is a subscription that delivers an album, a print and a cocktail recipe each month. This may be Robert’s gift this Valentine’s Day — music is such a passion of his that he took the money he had saved up for his first car and bought a set of Bang & Olufsen speakers instead.
2. Love You More Pillow, $33.99
We think wordplay is one of the quickest ways to bring humor and life into your home. Freshen up your bedroom with this fun pillow from Wayfair.
3. Tasting Room Wine Subscription, $23.99 for 2-Bottle Club
Whether you drink anything you can get your hands on after a long day, or you’re just trying to learn a little more about wine, this is a gift both you and your partner will enjoy.
4. Ivory Skull Rug, $249
So many special moments are spent cozied up on the couch binging on Netflix. Give your feet a treat with our masculine meets feminine Skull Rug. Whether you’re decorating your first home together or sprucing it up, you’d be surprised how one small thing makes you feel like you’ve done a full renovation.

5. Rose Patch, $15
Everyone loves roses. Go for one that will last longer than a week. (Bonus points if it comes on a cool new leather or denim jacket.)
6. The Picture Book Club, $11.99/month for a 12 month paperback/board book subscription
Our youngest, Major, is definitely out of the picture book phase — his favorite time of year is when the book fair is at his school — but for those of you who are lucky enough to still have babies, give your family the gift of a picture book subscription for the newest love of your life.
7. Quiet Time
Everyone’s so busy these days that a moment without distractions is practically nonexistent. Give the gift of an uninterrupted walk in the park (no cell phones allowed). It’s free and it’s one of the best things you can do for yourselves.
Whatever your budget and whatever you decide to get for your favorite person, remember that all that really matters is that you tell your partner you appreciate them for all they do. Give them that acknowledgment and you’ve already made their day.
