Last Minute Valentine’s Day Ideas To Save Your Ass! You’re Welcome!

Didn’t make plans for Valentine’s Day, and now you’re sweating it?!

We’ve all been there.

The good news is that it’s not too late to make a great impression on your significant other this Valentine’s Day! San Diego is full of cool places and products that can be had at the last minute, and still make you someone’s hero!

You’re welcome!

Handwrite Your Valentine’s Card

Skip the grocery-store bought Hallmark card! One of the easiest ways to score brownie points is to write a thoughtful note on real high-quality stationery!

Head to SoLo on Cedros or Pigment in North Park and pick up something memorable.


Hit The Beach!

Sure, it’s chliche. But so what?!

You can’t go wrong with a romantic walk on the beach. Bring some blankets and a wine picnic…you win.

Pick Up Flowers

Again, skip the grocery store and pick up flowers at a real flower shop. Trust us…the difference will be noticed!

Allen’s Flowers in Liberty Public Market and Downtown is a great choice!

Pick Up GOOD Chocolate

San Diego has some amazing chocolatiers! Grab something special from Eclipse:

Or David Bacco…

Or Chuao…

Or Sweet Petite Confections…

Stroll Through Balboa Park

An evening stroll through Balboa Park is just about as romantic as you are going to get!

Stop into Prado for a glass of champagne while you are there.

Does That Special Someone Love Beer? Head Here…

The Eppig Beer + Eclipse Chocolate Pairing


Or the Valentine’s Day for Beer Lovers event at Quartyard!

Snuggle Up To A Classic Romance Movie

Bonnie & Clyde will be playing tonight in the outdoor courtyard of The Headquarters tonight.

Bring a blanket and get some wine from one of the local restaurants…snuggle up and enjoy!

Bonnie-and-Clyde Movie 2

Bring Little Italy Home For Dinner

Can’t Cook? No problem! Little Italy makes it easy to pretend you can and still get all of the brownie points.

Step one, pick up fresh, made-from-scratch pasta and homemade sauce at Bencotto Italian Kitchen.

Next, grab a special, lesser-known bottle of wine at Vino Carta.

Finally, pick up some gelato at Pappalecco to put the finishing touches on your wonderful dinner!

Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂
