Forget delivery: 4 stores with great last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts for same-day pickup

If you tend to shop last-minute for gifts and perhaps just realized Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (and you missed guaranteed delivery already), have no fear. There are plenty of stores that offer same-day pickup where you can find a lot of unique, fun gifts for your sweetie. These are stores that almost everyone can access, and they provide a variety of options that don’t scream “last-minute,” so you’ll score points on this most romantic of occasions.

Target is the holy grail of shopping. You can get everything you need to make your significant other a nice meal at home and pick up a couple of gifts while you’re there. They have heart-shaped pillows, amazing-smelling candles, fuzzy socks, and even an adorable  heart-shaped mini waffle maker. You could also pick up a frame and put a favorite picture of the two of you in it. If you see something on Target’s website that you love, make sure to click in to see if same-day pickup is available at a store near you before you click “Purchase.”


Walmart may not be on the top of your mind when you think about Valentine’s Day gifts for your loved one, but they have two things going for them that many stores do not — a huge variety and same-day store pick up. You could show them your love through the gift of caffeine or Gucci perfume. While you’re there, don’t forget to pick up a card so you can write a little love note and earn even more points.

Kohls has a ton of options for your Valentine. Sure, there’s jewelry, perfume, and slippers galore, but if you really want to impress your love, please consider this Cuddl Duds blanket. It’s a combination of plush and sherpa and comes with five different heating settings so your precious will never get cold. It’s the perfect gift to order and pick up, and we promise you will be getting praised for your solid choice for years to come.

If your loved one is into makeup, skincare, or perfume, a gift from Sephora is the perfect way to say, “Treat yourself.” You can shop online and pick up in stores, and if you have no idea what they would like, they have gift set ideas online. You can also never, ever go wrong with a gift card because half the fun of Sephora is spending hours perusing the website or store. They also have “Bestsellers” and “Top Rated by Community,” so give it a shot and watch the love pour in.

These stores not only save last-minute shoppers, but they also boast a variety of gifts so you’re sure to get it right on this most important day of love. Plus, it’s way more fun to show up with your gift in hand so you can see your valentine’s expression when they open it.

With the pandemic, same-day pickup is getting more and more popular, so there will be even more options in your community if you have local stores you’d also like to support. Go on their website or give them a call in advance so you’re not celebrating the holiday empty-handed!
