Choosing the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day can be a bit of chore - and even more of a chore when you’re on vacation! Rushing around the Disney parks this time of year to find a last minute gift can be frustrating and extremely expensive if you’re not careful!
Whether you're celebrating Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day, here are some great last minute gift shops to visit:
Walking into Basin is a lot like walking into your own private oasis. The store is vibrant and full of soft smelling bath bombs, natural bath soaps, salts, and body scrubs. They’ve made it easy to shop for Valentine’s Day this year with a variety of soaps and bath bombs bursting with Mickey shaped petals. Plus, everything in this store is affordable with items less than $5 and you won’t have the burden of packing it up because most items are small and easy to travel back home with.
Their Valentine’s Day collection this year includes a cute heart shaped soap with pink and red Mickey shapes inside, a pastel Mickey soap, and more.
If you’re staying at The Grand Floridian, you’re in luck! Basin has a location there as well making it even easier to pretend you had master planned your Valentine’s Day gift the entire time.

If your loved one is into Disney Bounding, this will be the perfect store for them! Tren-D has a variety of clothes and accessories themed to all of your favorite Disney characters, rides, and elements. The Star Wars collection in this store is amazing this year and is sure to have your Valentine swooning!
Ever After Jewelry Co. & Accessories
Ever After Jewelry Co. & Accessories is a dream for anyone looking to feel as shiny as Tamatoa with all of the Disney flair you could ever imagine. Ever After Jewelry Co. & Accessories features the newest Disney x Alex & Ani bracelets, the newest Loungefly bookbags, Minnie Ears, and much more. Our favorite HOT item so far this year is the exclusive Harvey’s green poison apple handbag that you can only purchase at Ever After!
This beautifully handcrafted bag is made with recycled seatbelt materials and completely animal friendly. The sparkling green at the top “drips” down into a skull shape and perfectly contrasts this striking red bag. Inside, you’ll find an adorable print of the seven dwarves and is perfect for any Snow White fan!
These are just some of the best places to rush to and grab that perfect gift on Valentine’s Day. Don’t forget, you are at Walt Disney World - so some night time fireworks and a box of popcorn may be all you need to have the perfect evening.
One of my favorite “must-do’s” at Disney Springs includes walking into UNIQLO. If you’re Valentine loves Disney clothing that’s just a touch of Disney and very comfortable, they’ll love anything that you pick up from this store. Not only can you find a cute Mickey shirt for $10 in here, they make their shirts breezy and perfect for those scorching hot days at the park!
Looking for your typical flowers and chocolate? You wont find that here - but you will find the most decadent and rich chocolate experience on property! The Ganachery allows you to choose from a variety of gourmet chocolates big and small with some shaped like everyone’s favorite little mouse!
This is a chocolate shop best experienced in person, so I would make sure that you take your loved one with you when to take a visit to The Ganachery.
... or just enjoy the atmosphere.
Though you may be trying to rush around and find the perfect gift for your sweetheart this year, don’t forget that you are at the most magical place on earth! Sometimes, a perfect evening is best spent walking around the parks after the fireworks, grabbing some popcorn, and just taking it all in.
