Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (yes, we’re already nearing February!), and there’s no better time than now to start searching for a gift to give that special someone in your life.
Rather than waiting until the last minute and picking up the first box of chocolates you see or seeking out the last flower standing (it truly is a battle for the bouquets by then), take some time to check out our gift guide and plan ahead. It’s not just the usual that’s up for grabs, either. Get creative with your gifts by picking up one of LEGO’s incredible flower bouquets or creating cute customized Oreos to enjoy.
Below, you’ll find a selection of shopping options for Valentine’s Day, and hopefully, they help you find what you’re looking for.

When Is Valentine’s Day?
Valentine’s Day is one of those days that comes up quicker than you think. It’s on February 14th, which is a Tuesday. That’s only a few weeks away, which is why it’s important to start looking for gifts as soon as possible. Which leads me to…
How Early Should I Order Valentine’s Gifts?
Great question, reader, and I have an answer for you. If you’re buying flowers, places like 1-800 Flowers, FromYouFlowers, and ProFlowers offer Same Day Delivery on select bouquets. However, it can sometimes be more difficult, as selections will be fewer and far between, and even more expensive to wait it out until the day of, which is why it’s better to jump in now on purchasing your favorites that you come across.
If you’re buying some of the customizable treats that are listed above, it’s definitely better to place that order early. For the Oreos, according to their website, anything personalized takes 8-10 days to ship and the M&M’s can take between 5-7 business days.
As for the LEGO flowers, those can take between 3-5 business days for most of the sets. Especially with the LEGO Dried Flower Boquet up for pre-order, it’s best to get that settled now, just in case. This isn’t the case for every set, though, as some of them, like the Bonsai Tree set, can ship Same-Day through Amazon Prime if you’re a member. So it’s always best to double check. If you want to see even more LEGO sets worth picking up, make sure to check out our guide to the Best LEGO Sets for Adults.
There’s always the option of paying for express shipping with these purchases as well, but again, sometimes planning early and buying now is the easier route for both you and your wallet.
