And do head over to your local jeweler for last-minute jewelry gifts.

We do! And it's not too late... While Valentine's Day is tomorrow, some online jewelry retailers (Blue Nile, Tiffany & Co., and Pearl Paradise, for example) are offering overnight shipping that ends later today. And do head over to your local jeweler for last-minute jewelry gifts. Today is likely the busiest jewelry shopping day of the month: a FedEx survey of 1,000 consumers found that 36 percent of Valentine's Day shoppers "wait until the last minute" to make a purchase.

From the FedEx survey:

The survey of 1,000 U.S. consumers found that gift-givers are much more likely to procrastinate on their Valentine’s Day gift purchases than Christmas, Hanukkah or Mother’s Day. Thirty percent finish their shopping just one day before Valentine’s Day (or later), while just 18 percent do the same for Christmas or Hanukkah. Ironically, 40 percent of those surveyed also believe that February 13 is too late to find a good gift for a spouse or partner.

The FedEx survey also found interesting differences between men and women on Valentine's Day gifting:

• When it comes to procrastination, men tend to wait longer than women to purchase a Valentine’s Day gift. About one in three men (35%) wait until February 13 or later to buy something for their valentines, compared to one in four women (24%).

• Women are eager to receive a little more than what most men plan to give this Valentine’s Day. More women tend to want jewelry (22%), gift cards (13%) and home-made gifts (12%), than men plan to give (13%, 8% and 6%, respectively).

• However, men don’t skimp on spending for Valentine’s Day. On average they spend nearly twice as much as women ($114 vs. $63).

So if you need some last minute jewelry inspiration, we recommend sticking to classic diamond jewelry gifts like earrings, bracelets, and pendants. And if you need more ideas, please visit our gift guide: Jewelry Gift Ideas for the Love of Valentine's Day.

A surprise of sparkle is sure to delight this Valentine's Day!
