A Brewster's Millions' Valentine's Day

Need suggestions for a romantic gift idea that can be ordered online and delivered in the East Bay (SF) area, this afternoon. Caveat: there needs to be little trace left of it by 6 pm, so flowers are out. I know it's the last minute but the situation only recently emerged.

I don't understand what you mean whey you say "little trace left of it by 6pm". So something perishable and will be finished by 6pm? Or something that takes only a few minutes out of the day like a Candygram?

Yeah, do you mean that it needs to disappear by 6pm?

Order a pizza?

Sounds like someone's a cheatin'. Haha j/k...and you can usually order chocolates as well as flowers at some local flower shops around V-day. Maybe google a couple and give them a call to see if they offer that?

Response by poster: Yeah, I guess I mean perishable.

Check Safeway.com to see if they can deliver in that window, then you can have any grocery item you can think of.

Ice sculptures probably aren't available on this kind of short notice, but that's the first thing that popped into my head when I thought of "disappearing presents."

Some sort of ____gram would probably be best, as it's a service rather than a good.

There are plenty of hoity toity cupcake-themed bakeries these days that deliver. You could find a bakery to delivery half a dozen fancy cupcakes in pink, white and red frosting. They usually come in a pink box, which helps.
