Valentine’s Day is arguably one of the most polarizing holidays. You either love it or hate it. There’s very little in between.
Whether you look forward to pink hearts every February or think it’s a silly Hallmark holiday, 55% of consumers will spend $19.6 billion for the holiday, according to the National Retail Federation. Now that’s a lot of money!
If you’re getting ready to shop for your sweetie this Valentine’s Day, we’ve got some options to show you. From frugal to extravagant, these romantic gift ideas are sure to please, with price points to fit any budget.
Silk pillowcases are not just a luxurious bedding option, they’re also a beauty tool.
The silk fibers prevent frizziness and creasing in your hair while sleeping and maintain moisture levels in you skin. It’s known as an anti-bedhead tool and has been linked to anti-aging.
Both the save and splurge options are technically machine washable, although the Zimasilk pillowcase advises hand washing or getting it dry cleaned.
At Home Date Nights
This option is for the couples who like to spend their date nights at the house. You can do that? You sure can!
A date night might be staying in to play a game, make a craft or cook a meal – but the important thing is you’re doing it together.
Date Night In, our save option, is a cookbook that gives you over 100 recipes to try with your Valentine. The splurge option allows a bit more variety with a monthly subscription box. Each month you’ll be sent a new date night idea, complete with meal ideas and snacks.
Men’s fashion often gets the short end of the stick when it comes to accessorizing. There just seem to be more options for women than men – especially in the jewelry department. But watches are one area where guys can have a little fun with their style, which is one reason why a watch makes a great gift.
Both of these options are sleek and minimal with a stainless steel mesh strap.
Candles have become synonymous with romance and relaxation, but they’re not necessarily known for being inexpensive. Perfume scented candles can be well over $50, especially if you’re buying a larger candle.
Luckily, Anthropologie has beautifully scented mini candles for $14 with Valentine’s Day themed colors and sayings engraved on the lid. The Diptqyue options gives a slightly more classic scent (rose) that’s perfect for the holiday.
According to the National Retail Federation’s 2017 report, nearly 50% of Valentine’s Day shoppers plan to buy candy for their loved one this holiday. Candy makers everywhere are thrilled by this news, and so are valentines with a sweet tooth.
Go fun and fruity with Sugarfina’s Kiss Me Sugar Lips or stay a little more traditional (but still fun with molded shapes) and give your treat-loving valentine a beautiful box of gourmet chocolates.
Wine is a Valentine’s Day staple. Whether you’re buying a bottle for the toast at a romantic dinner or partying with your closest friends this Valentine’s Day, these options will be welcome at any celebration.
The HelloFresh Wine Club can keep the party going past Valentine’s Day too. It’s a subscription box you can have delivered to your sweetie each month!
Whether you’re having them delivered to your valentine’s office or bringing them to dinner, flowers are a sweet and romantic gesture.
Gone are the days of traditional red roses. Your love is unique, so opt for something out-of-the-box like our save option, a pink mini orchid. For the couple whose love is timeless, you can keep the tradition of red roses, but update them with a sleek black box display that will last your sweetie a whole six months!
No matter what your budget, you can find a Valentine’s Day gift that shows your special someone just how much you care. What will you be saving (or splurging) on this year?
