Is it February 13th already? That means tomorrow is Valentine's Day—and you totally forgot about it until now. Between work, snowstorms, and binge-watching shows on Netflix, it's kind of understandable, but in no way is any of that an acceptable excuse. Even if she says she doesn't want or need gifts, you'll at least earn some brownie points if you surprise her with a little something that proves you care. So bundle up, run to the mall (we all know you played hookie from work today) or add the following to your Amazon cart. What's that? Aw, we love you too. The Power-Couple Workout>>>
While many women love to pamper themselves, the fact of the matter is that it costs money to do so. Money that they might not want to spend on themselves. Surprise her with a gift card to her favorite nail salon so she can go get a mani/pedi. Not sure how much this stuff costs? A safe bet is $50. Insider tip: If you live in the NYC area, a cool salon is called Valley Nails . If she's into fashion or beauty, she'll love it there. ($50, nail salons nationwide
You may think you're being slick by picking up the first thing you see at your favorite jewelry chain, but newsflash, fellas: Women can tell. Instead, go with something classic—but not generic—like this silver beaded necklace by Lauren Ralph Lauren. Bonus? It's less than $50!

A Gift Card to Her Favorite Store
You should probably know where your significant other likes to shop, but if not, ask her friends, family or just check the label on her shirt. There is no such thing as having too many clothes and with spring (hopefully) coming soon, she'll be happy to have the opportunity to give her wardrobe an update.
A cheap, quick, but equally as great gift is David Sedaris' audiobook, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls. It's so much better listening to the author read his hilarious stories in his own voice than reading them yourself. It's a perfect for the woman who commutes to work and loves to laugh.

Conair Curl Secret
It's a known fact that women take forever to get ready. Help her speed up the process with the Curl Secret from Infiniti Pro by Conair. Long story short, it curls hair and does most of the work for women—all they have to do is place hair in the "curl chamber," press a button, hold, and done. Even that sounds more complicated than it actually is. You, sir, just bought yourself an extra hour...that she'll probably end up wasting on makeup and bathroom selfies. ($99, drugstores nationwide)
A little fruity but clean-smelling, this Lacoste perfume is something you'll love as much as she does. The best way we can describe it is that it smells like happiness. Pure happiness. ($43, kmart.com)
Uh oh—every restaurant you Googled is either booked or ridiculously expensive. What should you do? Quickly overnight this Omaha Steaks dinner to your house and cook her that romantic, candlelit dinner she's always wanted. ($69.99, omahasteaks.com)
Slim pickings at the local drugstore? Record a special message for her via Skype. Get creative and don't worry about being too cheesy—it's Valentine's Day. Just make sure to add in "You better not Instagram this!"
