5 Last-Minute Valentine’s Day Solutions

From boozy cupcakes to spaghetti for two, these same-day services have your date night covered.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably already in hot water. But the good news is that these same-day services may be able to help you out with a quick turnaround that’ll get you sweets, gifts, and alcohol in time for your date.

Cupcakes and Booze

Crunkcakes, the liquor-infused cupcake bakery that operates out of Union Kitchen, has partnered with Klink, the urban alcohol delivery app, so that all orders placed between Friday at 5 and Saturday at 10 PM will arrive with two Crunkcakes. The two flavors are Buttery Nipple—vanilla cake with butterscotch liqueur and topped with Bailey’s Irish Cream buttercream—and Cowboy Coffee, Guinness chocolate cake infused with Jameson and Van Gogh espresso vodka fudge icing on top.

Monogrammed Gifts

What’s better than boxers for Valentine’s Day? Monogrammed boxers. Now through Valentine’s Day, Thomas Pink will have embroiderers in store to add complimentary same-day monogramming to your purchase, and will even pour you a glass of pink Champagne while you wait. The benefits of this service are twofold: It helps make a basic gift makes seem more personal, and it’ll make your SO think you actually put some time and planning into their gift. Thomas Pink, 1127 Connecticut Ave., NW; 202-223-5390.

Dinner for Two

Ordering in doesn’t have to mean you’re stuck with pizza or spring rolls–Seamless can bring you dinner for two from more than 500 restaurants in Washington. Light some candles and play some romantic music to create an environment that’s more inviting than an overcrowded eatery, and still get dinner from one of your favorite restaurants around town.

Last-Minute Dessert
