Why not just DIY?

Sometimes the most thoughtful gifts are the ones you make yourself.

Homemade sangria kit. For a fun and boozy gift, try putting together a homemade sangria kit. You can find a pitcher, red or white wine (depending on your partner’s preference) and some fruit to set the stage for a fun and creative Valentine’s Day gift.

Rustic chic picture frame. Get your hot glue gun out for this fun gift. Make an open concept picture frame by attaching four pieces of wood and then stapling two pieces of string across the back. Add decorative clothespins with photos of you with your love and decorate to taste for a sweet and inexpensive DIY gift.

Homemade cookies. Sometimes classic is good and there’s nothing like the smell of warm cookies filling the house. If you’re not a pro-baker, try picking up a cookie recipe book from Amazon.

Nerdy gifts you’ll love.

Nerdy gifts can be a great way to make Valentine’s Day personal to your partner’s unique interests.

Graphic tee. Why not get your significant other something they can actually use, like a t-shirt? Make it personal by picking one that they’ll get excited about.

Plush bouquet. Some people give their partner flowers, but here at finder.com we personally think a bouquet of the solar system or corgis is much cooler. Check out these amazing plush bouquets from ThinkGeek. Whether you’re dating a Star Wars’ enthusiast or a unicorn lover, there’s sure to be a bouquet to suit them.

Star Wars cuff links. Why not gift your partner this pair of cuff links, which feature an interaction that’s as romantic as it is iconic.

Shop ThinkGeek for nerdy gifts

One of a kind: Unique gifts.

For a loved one who’s not quite the flowers, chocolate and romance type, try one of these unique gifts.

Board games. Although a board game isn’t a conventional Valentine’s gift, it’s a pretty great one. Unless you purchase the first ever board game for one, you’ll have a brand new activity that you have to do with your other half. Skip the old, boring games like Monopoly and get a game like What Do You Meme? or Wit’s End for a night of fun and laughs.

A surprise vacation.If you want to really spice it up, try booking an increasingly popular mystery vacation. You pick the budget and the dates and find out where you’re going once you get to the airport.

Pancake batter mixer.This suggestion is only for relationships with a sense of humor. Why not buy a pancake batter mixer? It’s completely unclear what it is and will elicit an interesting discussion, plus your partner will be able to make you perfect pancakes whenever you stay over.

Inexpensive gifts for romance on a budget.

A copy of your favorite book. This one is easy and romantic. Pick up a copy (or just order one on Amazon) of your favorite book and gift it to your love with a personalized message written inside the front cover.

A succulent. It’s fun to do a project together, and keeping a hard-to-kill plant alive is a great one.

A framed photo. One of the best cheap and thoughtful gifts I’ve gotten is a framed photo of my husband and I together. With options easily available under $5, there’s no reason why you can’t give this sweet and easy gift.

Bridging the gap: Long distance relationships.

Delivery flowers. It’s hard to maintain a strong relationship if you feel disconnected from your partner. Help them feel a little closer to you by ordering delivery flowers to their home or work. It will make your partner feel special and like you’re involved in their day-to-day life.

Key chain. We use our keys everyday, so buying a key chain is a good way to give your partner a reminder of how much you love them. This couple’s key chain from Etsy is perfect for long distance relationships.

A dual zone watch. If you live between time zones, you know how annoying it is to constantly calculate the time difference. A dual zone watch is a thoughtful gift for your long distance partner that will solve this problem.
