If the thought of even beginning Valentine's Day shopping is causing you to panic, we can relate. It's hard to think of a gift that expresses your love for a person. But breathe deep because gift ideas are in abundance from international retailers. Get inspired, and start your search from some of our favorite shops!

Shopping Valentine's Day Sales: Discounted Categories

Retailers ramp up Valentine's Day sales on the days closest to the holiday to lure last-minute shoppers. If you're not pressed for time or just looking for a good deal on something for yourself, make sure to visit your favorite brands for potential deals. Here's what you might find on sale.

  • Luxury Brands

    Does your Valentine love luxury brands? You may be in luck because retailers like to offer deep discounts in the early weeks of February. Last year, Michael Kors offered up to 70% off select merchandise.

  • Amazon Valentine's Day Gift Section

    The Valentine's Day Gift Section may turn up with savings on random gifts, but the discounts are worth it. Last year, Amazon offered huge discounts on top brands right before the holiday. The entire FitBit brand was up to $50 off, luxury watches were marked down, and many Anker products were on sale.
