Valentine’s Day is around the corner and is a perfect opportunity to show your loved ones how much you love them. But V-Day can be a problem if you are on a tight personal budget. Don’t worry. Valentine’s Day is not about how much money you spend; it is the thought and effort that counts. Expressing your love doesn’t have to leave you broke, but showing up with nothing but a smile won’t help either. Here are some inexpensive gifts perfect for Valentine’s Day. 

1. Cards

Love notes are the oldest Valentine’s Day gifts, dating back to St Valentine, who left a love letter to his jailer’s daughter before he died. Today, however, you can buy a card with a pre-written love message from a store. There is a wide selection of cards, and you can choose one with a message that suits your relationship status best. You can also a card printed with your message or design and print one at home if you are a computer whiz. As long as the message is genuine and personal, a card is a great romantic gesture, even if it cost you $5.

2. Candy

You can never go wrong with candy on Valentine’s Day. In any case, people expect sweet things on February 14. Candy gifts are inexpensive, but even better, candies are easy and fun to make. For less than $10 you can make amazing candies for your special someone. Making candies yourself is even better because it is more personal than a heart-shaped box from the store. It shows you put effort and thought into the gift.

3. Fruit baskets

Fruit baskets make incredible gifts, particularly to people who are well-off. Instead of gifting a monetary gift that has no personality, a fruit basket that includes the recipient’s favorite fruits and healthy snacks would be perfect.

4. Flowers

Another traditional token of love, flowers are a perfect gift to express love, and they won’t cost you much. Flowers date back to the 1700s and were used to send coded messages. Roses indicated love, and it is not surprising that roses are very popular for Valentine’s Day. However, although roses are the flowers of love, they are not the only romantic variety. Others include: 

  • Peonies – associated with bashfulness, prosperity, and romance. Some people even believe peonies bring good luck.
  • Matthiola Incana – these flowers represent beauty that doesn’t fade. They also symbolize a lifetime of happiness. 
  • Red Chrysanthemum – they are associated with love and passion
  • Pink Asters – these flowers represent sensitivity, love, and charm. 
  • Ranunculus – they symbolize charm and attraction

Get your special someone flowers, but be sure to tell them their meaning. With even $40 you can get beautiful flowers. 

5. Jewelry

Gifting jewelry to pledge love is a great idea, but aren’t jewelry expensive? Well, jewelry can be expensive, but I’m not talking about that jewelry that will cost you $2500. Some jewelry will not cost more than $100. Some inexpensive varieties include handmade jewelry, vintage jewelry, and costume jewelry.
