Valentine’s Day is right around the corner – Wednesday, Feb. 14. Luckily, there’s still time to impress your sweetie with something clever that won’t drain your wallet. Here are four unique but inexpensive ideas.
“What I love about you” journal
If you want to express your love but you’re no poet, this sweet little book is for you. Each page contains a fill-in-the-blank entry, such as “I love your taste in _____” or “I love the stories you tell about _____.” The structure prevents writer’s block, while the blanks allow you to customize the book to perfectly suit your partner. You can make it funny, romantic or racy, however, you choose. This book also makes a great anniversary gift. Available for $9.95 on Amazon Prime.
Gummy Xs & Os
Good ol’ Trader Joe’s never disappoints, and this Valentine’s Day is no exception. This year, TJ is offering gummy candies shaped in adorable X and O shapes. Packaged in an adorable old fashioned bag design, the gummies are clear, pink and red. Perfect for sharing with your love or playing a delicious game of tic tac toe. Only $2.99 for a 14-oz bag.
Pink Himalayan Salt Massager
Foodies and natural health enthusiasts will love this 6 oz round sphere made from 100% natural raw Himalayan crystal salt. Heat in the microwave or chill in the freezer to give your sweetie a hot stone or ice cold massage that eases tension. The stones also exfoliate and mineralize the skin, providing healthy magnesium and 84 other minerals and trace elements that alkalize the body. Sold at Urban Outfitters for $8.00.
If your Valentine loves astrology, American Eagle Outfitters zodiac mugs are a perfect gift. Each mug is a generous 22-oz size (that’s larger than a Starbucks venti) and features a lovely blue and gold constellation design. Inside each mug is a sweet message that says “get it, girl.” It comes in a nice box, too. Get yours for $14.95 at ae.com.
