Below, find great last minute Valentine’s Day gift ideas for him and her. These thoughtful gifts from Scentbird, Amazon, Drizly and more work within a variety of budgets. And you can even buy some of them day-of.

Gift a Scentbird subscription



If you’re stumped on what perfume or cologne to pick out for him or her, try a Scentbird subscription. Here’s how it works: 8 mL bottles are filled with fragrances from brands like Marc Jacobs and Versace. That equals about 140 sprays of perfume. Your loved one can test different scents, one bottle a month, without having to commit to a full bottle. Choose from a 3-month, 6-month or 12-month subscription.

Three Scentbird bottles cost less than one full-size perfume, at $44. And if you gift a 6-month or 12-month subscription, you’ll even receive one or two free fragrances yourself, respectively. Your loved one will receive an email notifying them of your subscription gift, so this idea even works if you’ve procrastinated until Valentine’s Day.
