Valentine’s Day Gifts Under $50

posted in: Gift Guides, Holidays

Valentine’s Day is around the corner! If you’re looking for something special for that special someone, I’ve got you covered.  I found 19 gifts under $50 that will make your sweetheart feel loved and appreciated.  

Air & Anchor Love Makes the World Go Round Adjustable Bracelet ($38)

This adjustable push-button bracelet is so comfortable that your Valentine may never take it off!  Available in Vintage Gold or Vintage Silver finish and made of recycled metals. Made in the USA.


Beautyologie Limited Edition Fair Trade Equals LOVE Box ($40)

This box of fair trade, ethically-sourced goodies will make a lovely gift for your sweetheart or Galentine.  The box includes a hydrating facial mist with white tea extract, rose quartz rosewater, and Persian lilac extract, as well as a nourishing tinted lip balm with nutrient-rich moringa, cocoa butter, and amino acids, a lovely-smelling lavender cypress candle, and a decadent, certified organic Moka Origins Tanzania 72% Dark Chocolate Bar.


Chefs Life 3 Bottle Gift Box ($39.99) 

I love this trio of yummy oils for dummies (my term)! Each bottle clearly states what the oil blends should be used for, i.e. for cooking, for finishing and for blending, so even a novice home cook can feel like a pro. The bottles are nicely designed and come packaged ready for gifting.  


Dazzle Dry CEO Mini Kit ($38)

If she does her nails at home, she is probably on the hunt for long-lasting polishes that rival the salon. This kit includes everything she needs for a lasting, fast-drying manicure including CEO, a fabulous Valentine red (other colors are available). Dazzle Dry is woman-owned and the products are hypoallergenic and free from reactive ingredients and animal by-products.


DEMDACO Giving Heart Cotton Decorative Throw Pillow ($40 on Amazon)

This fuzzy heart is a lovely addition to a bed or couch, and it’s slightly weighted, perfect for hugging. An excellent gift to your partner if you travel a lot or for someone on your list who might be missing a loved one. I gave one to an older relative who is a widow and she finds it very comforting. The pillow measures approximately 11 x 2 x 10 inches and is available in several colors, including cranberry red and soft pink. 


Effie’s 3-Pack Biscuit Sampler ($19.50)                                                                   

If your sweetie likes treats that aren’t cloyingly  sweet, I would highly recommend this biscuit sampler, which includes one box each of Original Oatcakes, Cocoa Biscuits, and Pecan Biscuits. The award-winning biscuits are reminiscent of digestive biscuits that are favorites in the UK, but they are lighter and flakier. It was all I could do not to eat a whole pack at once! 


ESW Beauty Milky Delights Luxe Skin Treats ($20) 

This set contains a selection of ESW Beauty’s popular sheet masks, which contain essences of clean ingredients to soothe and nourish parched skin. The set includes the best-selling Matcha Almond Radiance Milk Mask, Vanilla Oat Nourishing Milk Mask, and Strawberries & Cream Soothing Milk Mask, all of which are compostable!


GODIVA Gold Collection – available in Dark or Milk chocolate ($43.00 on Amazon)

You can’t have Valentine’s Day without chocolate! Every bite is a winner in this 22-piece assortment, which is available in either a Dark or Milk variation. So many yummy flavors to choose from; all in the fine quality that we expect from Godiva. 


Grey Bandit Mini Heart Choker ($40) 

This adorable gold-plated mini heart choker is a piece that she can wear all year long. It’s adjustable between 14-17 inches, using a pull adjustment similar to those on bracelets.


Hallmark Wine Night Valentine’s Day Socks and Wine Glasses ($34.99)

This cute set is ready-to-give in a festive red box covered in X’s and O’s. The set includes two pairs of X-and-O socks and two stemless wine glasses with the message, “cheers to love” on one and “cheers to us” on the other. The best part…because it includes two glasses and two pairs of socks, you receive gifts, too! 


Lace Charms (prices vary)

Sneakers are more on-trend than ever, but they could stand to be dressed up a bit if we plan to sport them at the office! This line of unisex sneaker charms allows your Valentine to accessorize and personalize their sneakers with statement-making adornments, like chains, jewels, and metal accents. I like the mix & match packs, like the Gem Pack and Remix Pack, which contain a variety of charms (now $25, regularly $45).


Lazy One Valentine’s Day PJs ($21.99 and up at Amazon) 

Your sweetie will love these Valentine-themed PJs! You can even treat yourself and/or the kids to a matching pair if you’re in a matchy-matchy mood. The PJs are cozy, soft, and durable, thanks to a 100 percent combed cotton knit. They are also pre-shrunk and feature a no-fade design, so they really hold up.  


LectroFan Micro2 Sound Machine + Bluetooth Speaker ($34.95 on Amazon)

This palm-sized gadget functions as a sleep sound machine and a Bluetooth speaker all in one – great for travel or to ward off your partner’s snoring. The Sleep Sound mode offers five digital fan sounds; four variations of white, pink, and brown noise, and two ocean surf sounds, all non-looping. In Bluetooth mode, any audio can be streamed from a phone/laptop and calls can be made with the built-in microphone. 


NYCpretty x byFRANKI Hats ($30)

A fun collab with trendy accessories brand byFranki and fashion maven Christine Bibbo Herr, (aka @NYCPretty), these pretty, pink beanies and trucker hats feature a shimmery black heart, for the perfect blend of feminine and edge. I’m loving my hot pink beanie – it makes heading  out into the NYC cold that much easier.  


Predatory Plants Cape Sundews ($12.99) 

This carnivorous Cape Sundews plant will be a unique addition to an existing plant collection, or a cool gift for someone who likes unusual things. The plant is easy to grow in a variety of conditions and it will be happy to eat any unwelcome flies and gnats that are flying around!   


ROAM Homegrown Galentine’s Day Gift Box ($44)  

This self-care set is ready-to-gift and includes a water-activated French clay facial mask, organic candies, a lavender soy candle and matches, a lavender body oil, lip balm, and bath salts and a personalized card. The products are handmade in Austin, TX with clean and cruelty-free ingredients.


True Story Foods Food Lovers’ Charcuterie Bundle ($49.99)

Food boards are all the rage so why not give one to your favorite foodie? The bundle includes two packages each of artisan uncured Genoa Salame and Heritage Breed Prosciutto, a package of the popular Kurobuta Heritage bacon, and a heart-shaped bamboo cutting board. Also included is a guide to a Valentine’s Day evening in with charcuterie beverage pairings and servings tips from from this fifth-generation, family-owned company.


Valdo Marca Oro Brut Prosecco Rosé DOC ($19.99) 

This Glera grape and Pinot Noir blend is a well-balanced, slightly dry bubbly that pairs beautifully with pasta, fish dishes, or tartare, according to the brand. I would add that it provides a nice counterpoint to a sweet dessert. A perfect beverage to kick off your romantic night! 


What do you Meme “Let’s Get Deep” ($19.99 from Amazon) 

These conversation cards will spice up your Valentine’s day (and night!).  The cards are divided into three categories: Ice Breaker, Deep, and Deeper, and feature probing questions that will help you get to know your Valentine better, whether you’ve just met or have been together for years.
