Forget today was Valentine's Day? Or just forget to get a gift in general? No worries, TODAY Shopping has you covered!

Instead of showing up empty handed or buying last-minute, overpriced flowers from the store down the street, get your loved one something they'll actually enjoy - on a gift card. There's no reason gift certificates can't make a perfectly thoughtful present, and you can actually print out a bunch of them straight off Amazon.

Here are 12 of the most creative (and useful) options we've found for Valentine's Day 2018.
