Valentine’s Day is almost here. And if you haven’t acquired some gifts to give yet, then chances are you need some help. So here are some lovely stress-free last-minute charitable gifts you can give this Valentine’s Day. Even if you already have items to give, it’s always nice to add something extra that can help others.
See below for our list of Last-Minute Charitable Gift Ideas For Valentine’s Day.
Here’s what you do: Make a charitable donation online — in some instances you can do so in the recipient’s name — then print out an e-card or other message offered. You can add this to an existing gift or give it on its own. If you want, you can run a Walgreens or CVS (some kind of pharmacy type place), grab a tiny box of chocolates and/or tiny teddy bear, put it together with the charitable gift message/print-out into a pretty gift bag (add tissue paper if possible to pretty it up), which will make the presentation lovely and not make it seem like you waited till the last minute.
Oh, and these are tax-deductible! And you’ll be helping others, while giving the gift. So, it’s a win all around.
