Is it just us, or does it feel full-stop impossible that we're already rounding the corner to mid-February? Believe it: Valentine's Day is fast encroaching (even if it feels like you ​just​ got your Christmas gifts sorted). Since our current times have put the kibosh on date nights at Michelin-starred restaurants, the art of the V-Day gift is all the more important this year, whether for your live-in significant other, your Galentines, or your quarantine crush. If the holiday snuck up on you, fear not — here are a few surefire Valentine gifts that'll still get to your (or your beloved's) doorstep in time for the 14th.

Anaya Pink Marble Salt + Pepper Holder with Spoon, $75

Pink marble feels especially appropriate for a v-day gift ... but rest assured, your Galentine will use this year-round. (Just be sure to include a punny note about how she's the salt to your pepper.)

Sara Weinreb Valentine's Day Thinking Of You Care Package, from $40

To be honest, we struggle to think of anyone who ​wouldn't​ benefit from some tea, chocolate, and bath salts right about now.

Flotsam + Fork Forged Oyster Knife, $45

You know what they say about oysters. If you're planning to enjoy some seductive fruits of the sea with your date this v-day, a handsome French oyster knife is a nice (and practical) gift.

The Aesthetic Union "Letterpress Is For Lovers" Subscription, $10/mo

For friends or family who are far away (or just for anyone who always needs to have a fresh print on their gallery wall), The Aesthetic Union's new letterpress subscription entitles your recipient to a new piece of hand-printed art every single month for just $10. (A very worthy investment, in our book.)

Esker Plantable Candle, $85

Truly the gift that keeps on giving. When the hand-poured soy candle — with notes of palo santo, rock rose, and cedar — is all gone, your giftee can use the included seed-embedded paper to grow basil right in the chic terrazzo vessel.

Rentrayage Vintage Pink Wine Glasses (set of 2), $35

"Rose-colored glasses," indeed.

Coravin Wine Preservation System, $329.95

This nifty gadget allows wine enthusiasts to pour a glass of wine without having to remove the cork — that way, wine can be saved and preserved without an added expiration date.

Jeremy Ayers Pottery Handmade Mugs Set, $80

Perfect for breakfast in bed ... with a "you complete me" motif that's charmingly minimalist.

Mr. Black Single Origin Ethiopia Coffee Liqueur, $48

Just in case you wanted to spike that aforementioned coffee.

XGIMI Mogo Pro Indoor/Outdoor Mini Portable Projector with Harman-Kardon Speaker, $550

Is there anything more romantic than a home screening of your favorite movie? This compact (and aesthetically pleasing) projector gets great reviews for its wireless operation, sound quality, and easy direct-streaming abilities. Just add popcorn.

The Citizenry Celeste Chunky Merino Throw, from $495

Snuggle up with this and the above "home theater" setup, and you've got yourself a date.

Stone & Beam Modern Rustic Ceramic Planter, $24.99

Deliver this with a plant already securely inserted. (May we recommend a fiddle leaf fig?)

Maude The Nightcap Kit, $34

Oleamea Olive Oil Gift Pack, $21

An everyday upgrade for platonic pals and lovers alike, a good bottle of olive oil — or better yet, two — can make a big difference in the kitchen.

Diptyque Limited Edition Graphic Candle Trio, $120

A playful graphic pop reinvigorates Diptyque's most beloved scents — and makes for a top-notch way to spoil someone.

Kohler Moxie Showerhead + Wireless Speaker, $199

Because nothing says love quite like a fully hooked-up speaker system in your shower.

RabLabs Vida Wine Gems, $100

Store these in the freezer and then pop them into wine for an instant chill without fear of a watered-down flavor.

Avaline Wine, $19.99

And, if you need a wine to pair the gems with? Look no further than this bestselling vegan wine from Cameron Diaz and Katherine Power. The Avaline lineup includes a crisp White, a fresh & zesty Rosé, a bold yet delicate Red, and most recently, a dry and refreshing Sparkling wine (but we gotta say we're partial to the Red).
