Five Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Sometimes the typical flowers and box of chocolates aren’t going to cut it, so what else can you get to make sure your gift is satisfactory? This list will breakdown five gift ideas varying in price range.


A Homemade Card $

This seems like a simple gift, but if you put time and effort into a heart-felt card, it can have a very positive impact on your recipient. All this takes is a plain card which can be found at an arts and crafts store, and a few decorations such as ribbons, stickers, or fake flowers. In total this project would come out to about $10.


Bath Bombs $

Bath bombs are loved by many because they are a fun way to enjoy a relaxing bath. All you have to do is drop it in the tub and watch as it dissolves into the water. Lush offers many different kinds of bath bombs and even have a few Valentine’s Day specific ones. Prices vary between $5 and $15 but most bath bombs are under $10. Since this product is generally a one time use, I would recommend buying more than one.


Sugarwish Treat Package $$-$$$

Sugarwish offers a variety of treats including popcorn, candy, cookies, snacks, and even dog treats. This can be a great gift for anyone this Valentine’s Day because of its versatility. Boxes come with anywhere between two and twenty four treats,and prices range from as low as $25 to $130.


Personalized Photo Book $$-$$$

Create a photo book filled with pictures of your favorite memories together. Shutterfly offers a wide range of book templates and customizations so you can really make it special. Books start at $20 but can increase in price based on size, amount of pages, and type of paper. This is a sentimental and nostalgic gift that I am sure will be cherished for years to come.


Precious Pearl Scented Candle $$

Candles are a great gift for any holiday and especially Valentine’s Day since they can be used for ambiance, decoration, or just to freshen up a room. Precious Pearl’s candle offers up to 30 hours of burn time and contains a pearl and pendant which are slowly revealed through the melting wax. There are many different brands that offer a candle similar to this one, and they vary anywhere from $20-$70.
