Don't be that guy (or girl) charging through CVS on February 14 in search of a giant heart-shaped chocolate box. If Valentine's Day is important to you, or rather, if Valentine's is important to your partner, act early and order one of these gifts. You'll get extra points for planning ahead, I promise.
5. Belgian Chocolate-Covered Oreos (FTD). Blah, blah, I know it's so easy to make your chocolate-covered Oreos, but in the process you're likely to get so annoyed by the vagaries of dipping chocolate that you will end up severely resenting the recipient of this gift. Dipped in dark, milk, and white chocolate and adorned with red hearts, FTD's Oreos also make a good group gift, for example, to the office singletons.
4. Caviar Gift Box (CaviarExpress). Probably your best choice if 1) you have some Benjamins to spare and/or 2) you have really screwed up as a partner this past year. The gourmet box (shipped COMPLIMENTARY OVERNIGHT) includes blini, crème fraîche, two caviar spoons and your choice style of caviar. Those who are really in the doghouse should strongly consider adding some Dom Perignon or 2008 Vintage Napa Valley vodka.
