Stumped on a last-minute gift to give your one-of-a-kind, wonderful sweetheart for Valentine’s Day? Try these gift ideas. Whether you plan to celebrate on the day or the weekend, she is sure to appreciate their timeless beauty.
1. Exotic Gemstones
If you want to go all out for your special someone, why not get an exotic gemstone like tanzanite? This rare precious gemstone is from the African country of Tanzania. Fun fact: tanzanite costs less for its rarity compared to other gems like rubies and sapphires. Their beautiful clear violet hue goes great with jeans and formal attire.
2. Her Favorite Birthstone
Gifts of jewelry with the valentine’s birthstone is a longstanding tradition. Did you know that the concept of birthstones comes from ancient biblical times with Aaron’s breastplate? It continues today with the modern list of birthstones by the American Gem Society.
3. A Painting of Flowers
Fresh flowers can make anyone smile, but a painting of flowers lasts a lot longer! Floral art is available in many price ranges, and styles from watercolor to impressionism. Just like real flowers, floral art pieces feature many kinds of flower species. You can even get creative and pick floral art according to the language of flowers.
4. Art You Can Wear!
Original art is beautiful in your home. And original art you can showcase on the go is even better! These pendants are perfect for the animal lover or arty person in your life. They even have genuine gemstone beads.
5. Pink Sapphires and Diamonds
This gorgeous necklace and earring set will look absolutely stunning for valentine princesses! Seven prong set, rhodium plated single cut diamonds are with each pear cut pink sapphire. Bonus points if her favorite color is pink.
6. An Adorable Figurine
If your sweetheart isn’t the jewelry type, a beautiful figurine is a great option. This Southern Belle is from England and crafted entirely in porcelain. Seaside Art Gallery has many other figurines too to suit diverse tastes.
7. Diamond Ring
We saved the best for last, of course…an amazing diamond ring! A perfect Valentine gift for those brave enough to pop the question. Seaside carries a number of diamond rings in different cuts, carats, and sizes. This one is a 14 carat two tone gold in a solitaire style. Its clarity is S12 and has a G color appearance.
Whether it be a diamond ring, original art, or an adorable figurine, Seaside Art Gallery is your destination for quality last minute Valentine gifts. Shop online or stop by the Gallery today to pick it up. She will certainly be impressed with your good taste!

Rebecca Latham is in her studio surrounded by the artwork she’s creating. Her favorite household cat is curled up next to her keeping her warm... with a rolling purr. With her paintings in sight, you can feel the knobby pines, the downy swans, and the wiry coat on the fox kit as she brings them to life on canvas.
It is in this setting that Rebecca shares the journey that brought her here.
