February is almost upon us, so here's your reminder: Valentine's Day is February 14, just like every other year. You're three days away. Did you get that present yet?
You're running out of time – and excuses. But don't fret. No need to go find whatever is left on the picked-through drugstore shelves on the evening of February 13 for your wife, girlfriend, partner, mother, daughter and/or best friend forever. We put in all the advance work for you. What if you had a list of thoughtful gift ideas, from a bouquet of flowers to fancy chocolates. Then you checked to see what was in stock and available to ship.
Hey – there's no shame in looking around for deals. It shows you cared; it shows you put thought into the gift and had a process. And, of course, it shows that you saved money too. Doesn't that sound like a great idea?
Our shopping-expert friends at our sister site CBS Essentials thought so. And not only that, they put together a list of things that you can buy online right now for her. Consider it your early Valentine's Day gift. Read on for the recommendations.
