I used to be a bit bah humbug about Valentine’s Day, but I figure with so much hate in the world, why not go towards love? However, that still doesn’t mean I actually plan to plan for the day. Right off the heels of the holidays, I am still rather last-minute when it comes to gift buying. With just a little over 2 weeks left, you might think roses, a Russell Stovers Chocolate assortment or something silly and cheesy on Amazon are all that’s left for you, but you’d be wrong. I have found some of the best Galentine’s and Valentine’s Day gifts that will arrive on time.
Best Galentine’s and Valentine’s Day Gifts 2024
Why not make a special Valentine’s Day drink? This pink House Alchemy Hibiscus Rose simple syrup is simply delicious and is made with hibiscus flower for a deep and earthy tone and rose which adds complexity and aromatics. Try this drink: mix 1.5 oz of vodka with 1 oz Hibiscus Rose Syrup and 1 oz fresh lemon juice and serve over ice. Other flavors and recipes can be found on their site. Or make your own.

5. Lavanila Sugar Cane Fragrance, $48
When Laura Mercier Vanille Gourmande Eau Gourmande come out in 2006, I just had to have it. I called it “man glue” because literally men would always comment on it.

Delicious. It’s also a natural healthy fragrance free of harsh chemicals.
