Valentine’s day is just around the corner. The holiday may have slipped your mind since we’re in the middle of a pandemic. But don’t fret, there’s still time to plan a date or get a gift for your special someone. Below, we’ve assembled a list of romantic discounts and gift ideas—almost all of the featured companies have discounts for health care workers. And if you don’t have anyone to celebrate with, or you’d like to get yourself a Valentine’s gift, we’ve put together a few less-romantic (though maybe more desirable?) gifts as well.
Flower discounts for health care workers
On Valentine’s Day, roses cost twice as much as they normally do. Nurses and other health care workers can cut into the holiday market with exclusive discounts.

The deal: 35% off orders for nurses and first responders
Urban Stems offers beautiful bouquets and other gifts such as plants and vases as well. If you’re a procrastinator, they also have same-day shipping.
The deal: Use code “farm fresh” for 20% off your order

Other Gift Ideas
Not everyone wants flowers or jewelry. That's especially true if looking for a Galentine's day gift or a gift for yourself. Here are a few other gift ideas—some elaborate and some simple.
