(KGTV) — If Valentine's Day seemed to sneak up on you quickly this year, you’re not alone.

Thankfully, the internet is ripe with ideas to help spark an idea or copy as your own. (Don’t worry, we won’t tell.)

If it’s the eleventh hour and you find yourself rushing around to grab that last-minute gift, here are some suggestions:

Flowers and candy: You can't go wrong with the classics. And thankfully, most grocery stores offer both flower and candy. Don't be afraid to splurge and throw in that special Valentine's Day balloon.

Gift cards: The gift of a gift card spells "last-minute," but you can frame it in a touching way. Couple it with a sweet card and look for somewhere you know they'll love to shop.

Bouquet of treats: Flowers are great and all, but some people prefer to feed their sweet tooth. Take your love's favorite treats, snacks, and even libations and put them together in a special bouquet of goodies.

Dinner date: We're not talking a dinner date out (though that is acceptable), but rather, cook dinner for date. The quickest way to the heart is through food, right? Take their favorite meal and spoil them!

A token from the past: Have something from a date long ago, perhaps a keepsake from the first time you met? Show them how much you care and make a gift out of it.
