Valentine’s Day Gifts Under $50

posted in: Gift Guides, Holidays | 1

There are many wonderful ways to celebrate your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day, and you don’t have to dig deep into your pockets to do it! Of course, you don’t have to buy a gift at all if it’s not in the budget-making a card or taking care of the kids while your partner relaxes are free ways to say “I love you” – but if you’d like to get them a little something, I found a slew of gorgeous gifts that are under $50.

Beauty & Wellness

Ostrichpillow Eye Mask ($45)

Do you keep your sweetheart up at night while you’re reading or scrolling? This comfortable, 3D eye mask is designed to adapt to any head and face shape, and delivers a 100 percent blackout experience, no matter how bright your light is. 


Danessa Myricks Beauty Dewy Cheek & Lip Palette ($32)

If your love needs a dose of color, this palette is packed with four flattering shades of a creamy, balm formula for lips and cheeks. They can apply lightly for a sheer glow or layer for a prominent pop of color. There are two options, Dew It Flirty, which is brighter, and Dew It Undercover, which has more depth and is better for darker skin tones. 


Tocca Eau de Parfum Mini Discovery Set ($20)

She loves fragrance, but what fragrance to give? This mini set contains eight trial-size sprays so she can discover, mix, and match. Notes include Florence, which contains bergamot, pear, and gardenia, Giulietta, with green apple and pink tulips, and Gia, with pink peppercorn, tangerine, and Turkish rose. 


Go Gray Haircare ($13.97 at Walmart)

If your partner bit the bullet during the lockdown and embraced their natural gray, these products are an affordable way to support their journey. The are several products available to ease the tricky transition to grey and maintain glowing silver locks once they get there.  


Spongelle’s Heart Collection ($14 each)

A fun gift for a loved one who loves pretty scents and soft skin, these heart-shaped buffers are infused with sumptuously scented body wash.  There are four scents available: French Lavender, Freesia Pear, Sugar Dahlia, and Bulgarian Rose. 


Delicora I Heart You Hoops ($48) 

These 1” hand-hammered hoops are hypoallergenic 14k gold-filled. They are incredibly lightweight and comfortable – a joy to wear! For every piece sold, 20 meals are donated to fighting hunger through Feeding America. 



Walk Your Way Calm by Jennifer Walsh ($24.95 at

This book was written by Wellness Expert, Jennifer Walsh, in collaboration with Prevention magazine, and is a wonderful gift for your partner who needs/wants to get outside more. This book is all about walking, with over 100 purposeful walks and writing prompts; teaching us how to make the most of walks on the beach, in the snow, in the park, and more, and helping us to think differently about how we hold our bodies, how we breathe, and how we can stay present in the moment. Fun to do together or on their own. 


KNOG Blinder Mini Love Bike Light ($29.95 each)

These tiny front and rear bike lights have a cute heart graphic that will allow your love to ride safely at night and think of you at the same time! They are deceivingly bright for their size and have a number of different settings.  I like to attach mine to a backpack if I’m walking at night, too. 


BestSelf Partner Appreciation Notes ($15 for a set of 2)

In a relationship rut?  These tiny little books are a great way to get un-stuck. For 20 weeks, you and your partner will respond to the gratitude prompts, which take as little as 30 seconds to do. After 20 weeks, exchange journals and read all about how much your partner appreciates you!


Drinks & Eats

Bake Me a Wish Heart-Shaped Cookie Tin ($38) 

This online gourmet gifting company is the #1 seller of birthday cakes online, according to the company. And they’ve knocked it out of the park with these delicious hand-decorated heart cookies in a festive reusable cookie tin. The cookies are individually-wrapped, so you can take your time savoring them.  


Venchi Large Valentine Heart Assorted Chocolate Tin ($30 on Amazon)

A box of chocolates is an old standby, but they are often a mixed bag of flavors – many of which go uneaten. If your partner is a chocolate-lover, you cannot go wrong with these high-quality, foil-wrapped hearts in dark chocolate and milk chocolate in a vintage-style reusable tin.  


PoppyHancrafted Popcorn Valentine’s Favorites Bundle ($34) 

For something a bit different, this trio of flavored popcorn will satisfy their sweet tooth! The bundle includes Cotton Candy, Salted Caramel, and Dark Chocolate Cherry-flavored popcorn and each flavor is scrumptious! The set comes gift-wrapped in a “Made with Love” mailer and tissue paper.

Your seafood-loving sweetheart will be over the moon when they receive this box of delicious seafood.  From smoked salmon to fish fillets to Pacific White Shrimp flash-frozen at the source, Blue Circle’s non-GMO products are responsibly-sourced and contain no antibiotics, growth hormones, or synthetic pigments. You can even sign up for regular deliveries to treat them month after month. 


Jelly Belly 10-Flavor Valentine’s Gift Box ($7.99 or $54.99 for 10)

A fun one for your sweet tooth sweetie or for the kids to give to their Valentine’s, this jelly bean tasting box is packed with 10 seasonal flavors, including Jewel Very Cherry, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Chocolate Pudding.


Cozy at Home

Heather Donohue Crafts Felt Valentines ($22 on Etsy)

Give (or keep) a valentine that can be enjoyed year after year! These colorful felt hearts were created by the amazingly talented crafter, Heather Donohue. They have a hanging loop, so you can hang them on a door, in a window, an indoor tree…wherever!  There are lots of sayings available, but I love “Bestie” for your favorite Galentine or “Yes Dear” or “UR Cute” for your partner. 


Perry Boyce Fireside + Chill candle ($32 on Amazon)

From this Brooklyn-based hand-poured candle company comes the Fireside + Chill candle, which is sure to set the mood if you’re spending Valentine’s Day at home. The package is chic black ceramic with two wicks, and the unisex fragrance is a cozy blend of fresh cracked peppercorn, smoke, and wood with clove, amber, sandalwood, and a dash of pomander citrus.


DAVIDsTEA Hearts Colour Changing Nordic Mug ($26)

With this cool ceramic mug, your Valentine will think of you every time they pour a cup of coffee or tea. Like magic, the hearts change to black to red with the heat.  The mug is sturdy and stylish and the lid doubles as a saucer or a resting spot for their teabag. 


Well Told Stemless Wine Glass ($19)

If your love is the sentimental sort, give them a glass with a custom-etched map of the city or town where you first met, or perhaps their home city. I’m partial to stemless wine glasses, but there are lots of options, including whisky glasses, travel tumblers, and more. This gift is handmade, so order soon!
