If you're anything like me (a chronic procrastinator) than you might be in a last-minute-gift-predicament. When all else fails, a thoughtful, handwritten card is always a good go-to of mine. But if written-word isn't really your thing, here is a fool-proof list for last minute and local gifts. Whether you're shopping for your partner, family, friends, or even yourself, this list has a few ideas to help you out!

• 
Macaroons from Hamlin Bakery
This is the perfect Valentine's Day gift for anyone you might be shopping for. Locally made treats sure do beat store-bought candy and these chocolate covered strawberry and strawberry cheesecake flavors are sure to hit the spot. 

• Curated Gift Boxes from Made in Corpus Christi
This awesome local brand is all about promoting the talent and creativity we have here in the Coastal Bend. Made in Corpus Christi decided to make your shopping needs a little easier this season with curated gift boxes! Each box features various products all designed and made right here. Quantities limited. 

• Rosé, Rosé, and more Rosé
A good ole' bottle of wine makes for a fun and tasty Valentine's Day gift. Whether you're celebrating with your friends, your partner, or heck, even yourself, this is a great purchase. Head over to our friends at Italian Cowboy and they'll help you pick out the perfect bottle. They're open until 6 PM today and tomorrow! 

• Accessories from Four Chicks in the Park 
The team over at this local shop have curated a lovely collection of Valentine's Day inspired accessories. From jewelry and wallets to shoes and bags, they're sure to have the perfect gift just waiting to be bought. 

• Pandora Valentine's Jewelry from Gatherings
A charm bracelet is the gift that keeps on giving! If your partner doesn't already have one, buying one now can help you start a new Valentine's Day tradition so you can buy new charms each year. Perhaps they already have one. If so, you can buy new charms to extend their collection and make a new memory. Head over to Gatherings and they'll help you find the perfect match for you. 

• Earrings from Shop L&RK
Our friends over at Shop L&RK always have the best earrings in stock. Their team curates an excellent selection and this multi-colored beaded pair is certainly no exception. With different styles, shapes, sizes, colors, and materials, it's almost impossible to leave the shop without buying something. 

• Statement Decor Piece from Alexis Hunter Interiors 
We are too obsessed with this brass "I Love You" Sign Language Hand from Alexis Hunter Interiors. This gift would make an excellent addition to anyone's bookshelf or desk! Plus, it will serve as a constant reminder to the one you gift just how much you love them. 

• Heart Shaped Goodies from Hanley Wood 
From heart-shaped storage items to heart shaped vases, Hanley Wood has all your love-inspired decor needs just in time for Valentine's Day. Stop in and find the perfect knick knack for whoever you're choosing to celebrate with. 

• Candy Kiss Bath Confetti from Jewels 
Do you have a lover of self-care to buy for this Valentine's Day? This heart-shaped confetti would make for the perfect bath time in spirit of the holiday. Stop into Jewels and buy any of the three packs they have!
