Need a few last minute cute valentine’s Day gift ideas? I have compiled a few ideas to start you thinking on what you might want to get in the next couple days.
For Candy Lovers –
I know there are many cute, standard, and popular choices for candy at your local store so here are some ideas to add to include with your heart shaped box of chocolates.
1. Giant Gummy Bear
Here is a giant gummy bear on a stick only $12.95 from giantgummybears.com. The one in the photo is the Valentine’s flavor version, but they have many flavor options for you to choose from. They also offer a larger bear around $30 depending on your flavor choices and a giant gummy bear bowl with a hole in his tummy to act as a candy bowl for $149.95.
2. Chocolate Dogs by Palmer
This year Palmer has a few different valentine offerings including a couple different dogs like the one pictured with different love sayings in the heart above the door. I am not sure if they are all the same type of chocolate (this one is double crisp), but I saw them at our Meijer so they should be available at your local grocery store as well. You can buy this guy online for $3.95.
3. Various Chocolate Animals
Made from the highest quality chocolate you can choose from a teddy bear, turtle or frog for $15.o0 each from Le Chocolatier.

The bears are made in Vermont, are fully jointed, and come with a lifetime warranty (meaning you can send your bear back to the factory to the “bear hospital” for repairs free of charge even if your dog decides to try and eat it).
