Thoughtful and Affordable Valentine’s Day Gifts

Valentine’s Day gifts don’t have to be expensive to be nice or thoughtful. While stores and businesses like to tell you that you need to spend a lot of money on Valentine’s day, there’s actually many gifts that don’t cost a fortune and are still bound to make your significant other feel special. Check out my list for ideas on what to give your significant other for Valentine’s day!

Photo Book

One nice gift you can give to your significant other is a photo book. You can either buy an album, and fill the album with pictures that you’ve printed out or design a photo book with services like Shutterfly or Snapfish. You can design a nice quality photo book for less than $20. The best part about a photo book is that it’s personalized and filled with great memories. Make sure to look for coupon codes!

Photo Gifts

Photo gifts such as mugs, jewerly, or phone cases with personalized photos on them are also a great gift idea for recreating memories. You can also look online for cool gifts that you can make with pictures.


There’s nothing that says “I love you” more than baking or cooking for someone. Take the time to cook a nice meal for your significant other or bake desserts. One easy and nice dessert idea is to make chocolate covered strawberries! They look great, and are delicious too.

DIY Gift Basket

Another idea for a Valentine’s Day gift is to put together a gift basket for your significant other. You can pick out some snacks that they like, warm fuzzy socks, a nice mug and wrap it all together in a nice basket or box as a simple and thoughtful gift. There’s tons of great ideas on Pinterest as well.

Get Crafty

Bring out your DIY and crafty side, and make something for your signifcant other. A homemade gift shows that you took the time to make something special for your lover. The best part about homemade gifts is that you can personalize them.

Some ideas for gifts you can make:

Scraves, hats, bath bombs, candles, jewerly, gloves, quilt/blanket, painting, pillow case, socks

Write a Poem or Song

If you’re a good writer or musician, you can write a poem or song as a gift on Valentine’s Day. A personalized poem and song is both thoughtful and special.
