Last-Minute Valentine Gift Ideas | New England Living | Text by Stacey Marcus

In case you forgot to check the calendar, your partner requested that we remind you that Valentine’s Day is just days away. Maybe you got swept away with the Super Bowl or buried in work, but February 14 is fast approaching. Not to worry! We curated a list of great gifts that will make your partner’s heart go thump…

Score Brownie Points

If your partner is madly in love with chocolate, check out this special Valentine’s gourmet brownie sampler from Vermont Brownie Company. It comes in two choices of packaging and is filled with six decadent brownies: walnut chunk, peanut butter, triple chocolate chunk blondie, espresso, maple toffee crunch, and the company’s signature original.

Sing (and Sip) Brandy, You’re a Fine Girl

This Valentine’s package at the Kimpton Marlowe Hotel in Cambridge includes an overnight stay for two; warmed Remy Martin 1738 brandy served fireside in the Lobby Bar; in-room amenity featuring brandy chocolate truffles along with Vieux Carré cocktails; and breakfast the next day in Bambara Kitchen & Bar, where Chef David Bazirgan is serving up yummy ricotta pancakes with brandied bananas foster.

Harbor Cruise with Live Jazz

Enjoy Valentine’s Day weekend aboard a Classic Harbor Line’s Aphrodisiacs Tasting Cruise with Live Jazz. As the yacht Northern Lights cruises through the harbor, you and your Valentine will enjoy stunning views of Boston, an intimate three-course meal (paired with bubbles or beer) that includes local oysters, and live jazz music.

Paint the Town Red

Paint the Town Red celebrations welcome sweethearts every weekend in February with a full lineup of romantic culinary experiences scheduled at various properties and restaurants in the Kennebunkport Resort Collection (KRC). The roster includes an oyster shucking class with local bivalves and wine pairings, sushi making demonstration with sake tasting, and a tap takeover with Biddeford’s Banded Brewing Co.

Teach Your Honey to Ski

Take your bunny up to the Woodstock Inn & Resort in Vermont for a romantic overnight that includes a private ski lesson and post-ski cocktails!

Don’t Give Love a Bad Name

Raise the bar on your Valentine’s Day gift-giving game this year with help from Hampton Water and Winston Flowers. They’re pleased to offer a luxurious gift box that includes Jon Bon Jovi’s rosé, Hampton Water, alongside a cluster of fresh pink roses. What to call this collaboration made in romance heaven? The Bed of Roses gift box, of course!

Put a Ring on It

For those Romeos looking for the ultimate engagement experience, the Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, has an “Ultimate Engagement Package” that includes a two-night stay in the four-level Ocean House Tower Suite, a 2.5-carat diamond engagement ring, a professional photographer to record the proposal and engagement, a three-hour “Couples Experience” at the Five-Star OH! Spa, two dozen red roses, and a daily in-suite breakfast with endless mimosas made with Veuve Clicquot.
