The 15 Best Valentine's Day Gift Ideas Under $25
Saying "I love you" doesn't have to be expensive. Spread love (and laughs) with these unique and budget-friendly Valentine's Day gifts for your favorite person.
I don't know about you, but my wallet still hasn't fully recovered from the holidays — and now Valentine's Day is swiftly approaching. So this year, in a mutual effort to stick to our budget, my wonderful husband and I have shamelessly agreed to set a spending limit of just $25. And to be honest, I kind of love it. It's just enough cash to get creative with our gifts but not enough to do any damage.
In fact, don't tell him this, but I've already started shopping around and found so many heartfelt (and hilarious) options for $25 or less. Here's a list of my 15 top picks, just in case you want to steal them for your own sweetheart.
Celebrate your love of Schitt's Creek and each other by gifting your person a coffee mug inspired by David and Patrick. The microwave-safe cup is crafted from smooth ceramic, available in two different sizes and can even be customized with a personal note in your own handwriting.
Turn watching movies together into a special occasion with this fun scratch-off poster. Your partner will love scratching off the silver squares to reveal classics like Citizen Kane and Vertigo, as well as contemporary favorites like The Lord of the Rings, Mean Girls, Moonlight, WALL-E and more.
If your S.O.'s always snapping photos of you two together, tug on their heartstrings with an iPhone case that doubles as a picture frame. The case comes in sizes 6/7/8, 6+/7+/8+ and XR and XS Max, and features a slot for a special Instax Mini image.
If your heart's desire is always seeking advice from the stars (or comparing your Zodiac signs for compatibility), then gift them a copy of Love Match: An Astrological Guide to Love and Relationships. The large hardcover book is inclusive and queer-friendly and covers everything from flirting and dating to cohabitation and long-term commitment.
Long-distance relationships can be tough. But thanks to this custom portrait keychain, your partner can always keep you close. The one-of-a-kind gift is hand-drawn with acrylic paint onto a glittery resin heart and will arrive in time for Valentine's Day if you order right now.
In the language of love and appliances, a regular mini waffle maker says that you like each other, but a heart-shaped mini waffle maker says that you're totally committed. Take the next step and treat your love to this small but mighty-cute machine, then spend the morning making breakfast.
Show off your excellent communication and collaboration skills with a personalized puzzle that you can complete together. The 252-piece set costs just $20 and will make an incredible keepsake for their coffee table. And best of all? You can customize it with up to 17 photos.
Haven't defined the relationship yet? Hit your Bridgerton-loving S.O. with this hilarious candle, and they'll get the idea. The custom label features the now-iconic line "I burn for you," along with Daphne and Simon's first touch. And it's available in three different scents.
Cheers to a romantic night in with your person! Pay tribute to the place you first met or an incredible vacation you took together and treat your partner to a spread on this skyline cheese board. The smooth stone slab is crafted from slate and available in cities like Boston, Chicago, Denver, New York and San Francisco.
Fresh flowers are nice, but it's hard to beat something permanent. This year, skip the traditional bouquet and hand your loved one a signet ring featuring their favorite flower. You could also engrave the disc with your birth flower or the flower that represents your anniversary.
Get to know each other and the night sky with this swoon-worthy book for amateur stargazers. Together, you'll flip through hundreds of high-gloss pages; learn all about shooting stars, planets and constellations; and be able to spot celestial bodies on future camping trips or in your backyard.
Sometimes the best gifts are new experiences. If you and your sweetie live somewhere that gets a lot of snow, surprise them with this twisted peppermint tube and an afternoon of sledding. The tube is crafted from PVC vinyl, so it's easy to deflate and store and has two side handles for a comfortable ride downhill.
If ever there were a gift to splurge an extra $5 on, it's this. If they miss traveling the world together, give your sweetheart a special way to relive their favorite memories with this personalized reel viewer. The package contains a code to redeem one reel with seven images, but you can purchase another for just $14.95.
