Valentine’s Day is approaching, but if you’re on a budget, never fear! Something special for that special someone doesn’t have to cost a fortune – I’ve found $20 fantastic gifts for your sweetheart that are all $50 or under that are sure to make your sweetheart feel loved and appreciated.
FOOD & BEVERAGE
Lindt Lindor Pick and Mix Valentine’s gifts ($15.49 and up)
Lindt Lindor’s are some of my favorite chocolates, and I love their Pick & Mix options for Valentine’s, where you can choose from more than 20 flavors to include in your gift. Select 25, 50, 75, or 150 pieces in ready-to-gift packaging like a Valentine’s Tote, Gift Bag, Gift Box, or Heart! Some of my favorite flavor options are the Chocolate-lovers mix, Matcha White Chocolate, and Cheesecake. Yum!
This adorable, reusable metal candy box is shaped like a book, and inside, you’ll find a selection of delicious milk and dark BaciodiDama and Gold Caramel Cremino chocolates.
This set is the perfect compliment to their beloved brew. The set includes Grounds & Hounds best-selling Espresso-Infused Caramels, Chocolate-Dipped Espresso Beans, traditional Hot Chocolate, and the brand new Toffee Coffee Chocolate Bar. 20 percent of profits are donated to dog rescue organizations.
BEAUTY & WELLNESS
This Valentine’s-themed, limited-edition set will hydrate and plump dry and parched lips and depuff and brighten the eye area. The set includes 2 pairs of best-selling lip masks and 2 pairs of eye pads. 2x the fun!
If you’re going to buy your Valentine a lipstick, make it this one. The packaging is incredibly ornate with an engraved exterior (with a gold tassel!) and a clever locking system. The bullet, which is also engraved and tells a story, comes in several wearable colors in a soft matte texture infused with silk oil that evaporates to leave behind a finish that is non-sticky and transfer-resistant.
Dry lips are a constant in the wintertime, so this kit of three fan-favorite lip treatments will come in handy; one for the makeup bag, one for the car, and one for a favorite coat pocket! The set includes a pink-tinted Guava Mango Smoothie, a clear, glossy White Pitaya Coconut, and a soft beige Vanilla Almond Butter. They all feel and smell amazing.
The brand also has 2 cute Valentine’s Day sheet mask duos, The Dream Team ($9) and Pillow Talk ($9.50) – one nourishing treatment for you, one for your partner!
In the dead of winter, our skin needs a lot of TLC! This kit from clean beauty brand, Kopari, has what your sweetheart needs; a full-size Ultra Restore Body Butter, which is a fast-absorbing cream that provides intense hydration, Lip Glossy, which nourishes your lips with coconut oil and squalane, and a travel-size Golden Aura Body Oil with microspheric hyaluronic acid and pure 24K gold flakes, to leave skin soft and glowing.
NatureWell Watermelon Face Mask ($14.79 for two)
Looking for a gift for 2 Galentines (or one gift for her, one for you)? This refreshing gel mask has become one of my treatment go-to’s. It’s a cinch to apply and remove and it’s infused with watermelon fruit water and plant-derived squalene. And you can’t beat the price!

Beer might seem like an unlikely ingredient in soap, but it makes a surprising amount of sense; the amino acids from hops soothe irritated skin and the brewer’s yeast provides biotin, pantothenic acid, and other essential vitamins. This shea butter soap is made with Charms & Hexes ale from Maine-based Banded Brewing Co. and a natural, rose clay powder that exfoliates and gives the soap its pinkish hue while gently exfoliating dry winter skin.
This gift set contains a rose-scented soap bar, an organic cotton cleansing and exfoliating pouch, and a solid wood soap dish that helps extend the life of the soap. A variety of fragrance-free and fragranced options are available to suit your partner’s taste.
This duffle looks far more expensive than it is, and it’s an ideal size for a yoga bag, baby bag, or for use as a carry-on when traveling.

The wallet comes packaged in a gift box and is available in basic black and several vibrant colors.
APPAREL, FOOTWEAR & ACCESSORIES
Express your love with this sweet little heart necklace! The gold-tone plated necklace features a tiny, tilted heart on a delicate chain and it’s packaged beautifully – ready to give.
These delicate, handmade necklaces are mounted on a card with an inspirational message of care and encouragement that is harmoniously aligned with the healing energetics of the gemstone of your choosing. In addition to You Are Strong with black onyx & pearl, which is one of my favorites, other good Valentine’s choices are Nurture Your Heart, Self-Love, and I Love You.
