Like it or not, Valentine's Day is upon us. And whether you're flying solo or looking for a little something special for your someone special, luckily, retailers do not discriminate. Here, the best Valentine's Day deals and specials to shop now. 

  • Eric Buterbaugh's Gift Special

    This Saturday through Tuesday, L.A.'s favorite floral designer Eric Buterbaugh will be hosting a Valentine's Day Pop-Up Shop featuring special floral arrangements and gifts at his Melrose flagship store. 

    Pickup red, white and pink tulip arrangements ($100), a classic bouquet of red roses ($200) or a gift box complete with a cashmere travel wrap and an EB Candle. If you're feeling extra generous, a gift box and bouquet of red roses can be yours for $895. 

    The shop is open Saturday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.

  • Gary Baseman x Coach

    Artist Gary Baseman has collaborated with Coach on a menswear collection fusing his signature vintage-inspired prints on a range of bomber and moto jackets as well tees — and now the collection can be yours. 

    The Gary Baseman x Coach pop-up shop is open now through March 7 at Bloomingdales at the Beverly Center.

    “We’ve worked with Gary Baseman previously, but this time we’ve taken American iconography — Surfer, Hawaii and Western — to create imagery that disrupts those ideas, weaving a mischievous, unexpected thread through familiar, nostalgic references,” said Coach creative director Stuart Vevers. “The collection overall is less wholesome but still remains true to all of Coach’s values with a more extreme take.” 

    There will only be 5 pop-ups at Bloomingdale's locations throughout the country (L.A., SF, Chicago and two in NYC), so grab the collection while you can.

  • The Office of Angela Scott Sample Sale

    If you're feeling blue this Valentine's Day, how about some fresh kicks to lift your spirits? 

    On Feb. 23 and 24, The Office of Angela Scott is hosting its end of season sample sale at the Cooper Design Space in DTLA. The self-described "luxury punk" footwear brand ($350-$675), which has been worn by cool ladies like Solange and Cate Blanchett, adds a bit of flare to traditional shapes via funky finishings and embellishments. A pair of classic oxfords, for example, is done up in a metallic leather with tassels. Get 'em while they're marked down.

  • Daft Punk's Pre-Grammys Pop-Up in L.A.

    You don't have to get lucky in order to get your hands on some Daft Punk swag. The electronic music duo is setting up shop in Los Angeles from Saturday Feb. 11 through Sunday, Feb. 19 at Maxfield Space in L.A. — the same venue where Vetements hosted its "Dry Cleaning" pop-up event on Thursday, and where Off-White's Virgil Abloh held his pop-up last holiday season. 

    But you can bet that Daft Punk's shop will be harder/better/faster/stronger than the rest. Their first-ever pop-up will feature a retrospective of archival set pieces, props, wardrobe, artwork, photography and robot helmets on display for the first time as well as a range of limited-edition items created by a selection of Maxfield's esteemed designers — including Gosha Rubchinksiy, Enfants Riches Deprimes and Off-White.
