Gift-Giving Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a time for joy and a time for romance. But that doesn’t come before you figure out what gift you should get and finding the right gift can be challenging. That’s why we put together a list of gift-giving ideas that are sure to put a smile on your valentine’s face.

No matter what budget you have to work with, there is a great gift at every price range. Take the stress out of finding a gift and use any of these ideas to make this Valentine’s Day a memorable one.

Picnic (Free)

The beautiful thing about a picnic, aside from the fresh air and views, is that you don’t need to plan an extravagant meal. The picnic itself will be memorable, so it doesn’t matter if all you have to pack are a few sandwiches and cheap wine.

Find a nearby park or outdoor area with beautiful views, and it won’t be hard to set the mood and have a good time.

Love Letter (Free)

Sometimes, the best things are free. Show your valentine how you feel about them through a thoughtful letter and it’ll be sure to have a strong impact. 

You don’t need to use fancy paper or an envelope. You can say things you should have said a long time ago, or even something you never said before. Writing a love letter may be difficult, but that’s part of what makes it so special. 

Virtual Cooking Class ($0-$50)

If you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate, a virtual cooking class might be just the thing you are looking for. You can find a free cooking tutorial online or pay a small fee for a live cooking class.

You can share the experience of preparing dinner and you’ll have a delicious meal at the end of it. It’s a great way to spend time indoors and it’ll be an experience you remember for years to come.

Chocolate Bombs ($5-$20)

Almost everyone thinks of buying chocolate on Valentine’s Day, but chocolate bombs aren’t your typical chocolate. They typically consist of an outer shell of chocolate and a creamy filling of your choice.

Chocolate bombs are inexpensive and look really cool paired with hot cocoa, a teddy bear, or some flowers. You also have a lot of options to choose from for toppings and fillings.

Bath bombs ($5-$30)

By now, you’ve probably seen an eye-catching video of a bath bomb dissolving in water. They jet vibrant colors on all sides, leave behind a pleasant scent, and turn plain bath water into a conditioning mixture.

This is the perfect gift for anyone who appreciates self-care and the cool designs most bath bombs leave in the water. The price range for bath bombs will depend on how many you decide to buy and where you buy them from, but they are generally affordable.

Candle ($5-$30)

Candles never go out of style. They can be romantic, relaxing, beautiful, or even just functional. You can also easily find a great candle on a budget if you look hard enough, or you can increase your budget for something extra special.

Make the gift of a candle more personal by choosing scents and colors you know your valentine will like. It shouldn’t be hard to do because of the sheer variety of candles out there. Department stores and beauty shops also double down on their candle sales this time of year.

Special Picture ($10-$50)

Do you have a special photo on your phone or saved somewhere on your social media? If you do, then you already have the perfect gift. All you need to do is print the photo and frame it.

Your budget will largely depend on how extravagant the frame is and how big you decide to make the photo. You can use a photo from your first date, a trip together, or something that reminds you both of a special day.

Flowers ($20-$100)

You can never go wrong with flowers, but you can go really wrong depending on when you buy them. If you try to buy flowers on Valentine’s Day, you’ll be hardpressed to find good looking flowers at a good price.

Your budget for flowers will largely depend on the kind of flowers you buy, how they are prepared, and where you get them from. Make sure to do your research before buying your Valentine’s Day flowers.

Host a Movie Night ($0 – $100)

How much you spend hosting a movie night will depend on how many people you have over and what you decide to provide in snacks and refreshments. An easy way to cut down on costs would be to have other couples bring their own refreshments.

You can also rent a residential dumpster to make preparation and clean up a breeze. All you have to do is fill the dumpster and our JCS Group team will take care of the rest. It’s that easy.

Jewelry ($50-$200)

There are two ways you can go about this. You can either pick the jewelry yourself or have your valentine pick it out. If you don’t plan on spending a lot of money, I highly recommend that you pick it out yourself to avoid making it feel like a bargain hunt.

You have a lot of options when it comes to buying jewelry. Pay attention to the style that your valentine wears and try your best to find something you think they will like.
