Today is Valentine’s Day and many people are celebrating all over the world. For some it is a holiday which is old hat and for others, it is their first. No matter your experience level, some folks are scurrying to get the perfect gift for their special love. If this is you, relax! Just because you waited until the last-minute does not mean you cannot give a great gift! Here are 3 ideas for anyone who has not yet gotten their Valentine a gift.
- Edible Arrangements: You can still order an edible arrangement of chocolate covered strawberries or other assorted fruits. Because it is fruit, it will still be fresh, but you may need to pick it up yourself as delivery may not be guaranteed.
- A Mixed Music CD: If you have a music lover on your list, making them a CD of all their favorite songs is perfect. You can do this at home and it is cheap and your Valentine will love it.
- Pre-Paid Gift Card: If you are just not sure what to get but want to impress your sweetie, get them a pre-paid gift card. This will allow them to buy when they want and will take the pressure from you. Just think..a gift card will not melt, wilt, have calories or not fit, so they are the greatest last minute Valentine’s Day gift!
If you are looking for a great pre-paid card to buy, the Vanilla Gift card is great. The Vanilla Gift card is accepted by retailers who take Visa and MasterCard and are available in denominations of up to $500. You can find the Vanilla Gift cards at most retailers who sell prepaid gift cards and you can choose from a variety of designs and themes.
You can use the Vanilla Gift card immediately and there are no purchase fees. I used my Vanilla Gift MasterCard while I was in Chicago and it was great! I used it to buy my coffee, newspapers, dinner and some gifts for the kids. One USA reader will win a $25 Vanilla Gift card by answering this question in the comments below:
