The Best Cheap Valentine’s Day Gifts (Mostly) Under $25

It is often claimed that love cannot be purchased with money, but on February 14th, it's important not to hold back when expressing your affection. Fortunately, there are numerous cost-effective methods to make a lasting impression on your loved one.

In this list, we've compiled our top picks for Valentine's Day gifts, most of which are priced at under $25, suitable for lovers, friends, and cherished family members alike.

A cherry on top

Luxardo's Original Maraschino Cherries, made in Italy, are a far cry from the neon alternatives in Shirley Temples. 

Soaked in Luxardo's cherry syrup and transformed through pasteurization and time, these cherries are a mixologist's favorite for classics like Manhattans. 

The syrup also adds a delightful twist to non-alcoholic fizz when mixed with club soda.

Oyster opener 

While the belief in oysters having aphrodisiac qualities remains questionable, we can't deny the allure of someone effortlessly shucking these delectable creatures. 

The Opinel No.09 Folding Oyster Knife features a sturdy 2½-inch stainless blade with a blunt edge, ideal for safely prying open shells. Its locking mechanism ensures finger safety, and it conveniently folds and locks into the wooden handle for storage or transport

candle-making kit

A candle-making kit so they can finally combat their Bath & Body Works obsession by making much more budget-friendly candles at home (added bonus, they can use up all those mason jars they've been hoarding for who knows what reason).

Lightweight, compact, this towel warmer adds comfort and style to bathrooms and bedrooms.

The book of love

This fill-in-the-blank book for couples offers prompts to uncover deeper connections and heartfelt sentiments between partners. 

In "What I Love About Us," prompts like "We make the best..." and "I still can't believe we..." inspire affectionate, revealing, and unexpected reflections on why you chose each other in the first place. 

Please note that this book is compact, approximately the size of a men's wallet.

An Embroidery kit


An embroidery kit perfect for beginners so they can dabble in creating intricate, hand-stitched works of art.

Embark on a creative journey with the Embroidery Art Kits, perfect for beginners and offering an all-in-one experience with ample supplies, easy-to-follow instructions, and the added touch of being an ideal gift.

Paper flowers


The Paper Love 3D Lovely Roses Pop Up Card appears as a typical rose-themed greeting card when closed, albeit larger in size. However, when you open it, it unveils a remarkably intricate and sizable arrangement of paper red roses. 

This card is perfect for conveying affection without overwhelming someone with a full-on declaration of love, making it an ideal gift for a crush or someone with whom you have an undefined connection. 

The personalized section is detachable, allowing your recipient to display it publicly without revealing the heartfelt words you've written.

Dash Mini Heart Waffle Maker

If breakfast in bed is a cherished part of your Valentine's Day routine, then you absolutely need the adorable Dash Mini Heart Waffle Maker. 

This little gem produces petite, 4-inch heart-shaped waffles.

While it may not be featured on our list of the best waffle makers and its indicator light might seem a bit puzzling as it flickers during cooking (as per the manual, this is how it regulates temperature), you can easily remove the waffle when the machine stops steaming, ensuring your waffle reaches the desired level of crispiness.

Dr. Jart+ Cryo Rubber Facial Mask 

The two-step mask is a fun and easy-to-use skincare product that's perfect for selfies and leaves your skin soft and supple, if only temporarily. 

Step one involves applying a collagen- and botanical-rich serum to clean skin, followed by step two, which entails placing a seaweed mask on for at least 30 minutes. 

The mask is cooling and aids serum absorption while keeping the skin hydrated. It's noteworthy that you can sip a beverage while wearing this Dr. Jart+ mask, a feature not common in most sheet masks.
Consider getting two for a co-masking session – ideal for a stay-at-home date night.

GiantMicrobes Heart Organ Plush

For the lover who seems to have everything, except perhaps an anatomically accurate plush heart, we have just the recommendation. 

Among the various stuffed hearts available, we particularly adore the GiantMicrobes Heart Organ Plush.

This plush heart is not only anatomically precise, with details like the pulmonary artery, vena cava, and aorta all accounted for, but it's also charming with its pink beady eyes and absence of a mouth. 

This heart makes an excellent companion for a doctor or nurse, someone in the process of studying for these professions, or anyone who appreciates quirky, inanimate companions.
