Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Your boo never need know that you waited until the last minute to get the gift. Huge thanks to IfOnly, Dogeared x Postmates and Modern Citizen for taking pity on all the slowpokes out there—€”by offering same-day delivery in San Francisco. Looks like a happy Valentine's Day is in your future, after all.

Here's the download...


We can't even. IfOnly's decadent Valentine's Day Chocolate from 21 of the Top Chefs in America is worth every penny of its $75 price tag. Wait, hear us out—every unique confection was created by a superstar, including the likes of Michael Mina, Traci Des Jardins, Gary Danko, Tyler Florence and José Andrés; plus a portion of the proceeds benefit the James Beard Foundation.

Alternatively, there's a 9-piece collection for a more palatable $32. Buy either collection online (select SF delivery at checkout) before noon on Friday, and you'll get it hand-delivered for free. Note: €”delivery does not cover every zip-code in the city.


It’s #SpeedofLove to the rescue: For just a $1.99 delivery fee, get Dogeared’s gold-dipped Infinite Love ($60) necklace in your hands the same day you buy via Postmates. This special service is available on purchases through Sunday, Valentine’s Day, with delivery between 10am and 7pm. No need to worry about wrapping paper, either, as the pendant comes in a lovely gift box.


Starting tomorrow and through Valentine's Day, the local e-tailer known for its "classics with a cool twist" clothing is offering free UberRush for SF delivery, plus a complimentary mini bouquet designed by Ampersand, for orders over $150. (Use code Ampersand at checkout). There's a lot to love here, including gorgeous accessories and home décor items.

Another option that will require more effort on your part? Hit up the showroom during its special hours: 10am to 5pm, Friday through Sunday. Modern Citizen's showroom is located at 2762 Octavia Street.
