Valentine’s Day Gift Guide: Flowers, Chocolate, Jewelry

In my mind, there are three big categories of Valentine’s Day Gifts – flowers, chocolate, and jewelry. But they can get so expensive! Did you know that the average American spends over $100 just on Valentine’s Day gifts? Yikes.

So today I’m going to share with you some not-so-pricey options for great Valentine’s Day gifts. (Ladies, you might want to forward this post along to your husbands/boyfriends.)

First one’s easy. You can order beautiful floral bouquets from or FTD for as low as $19.99 plus shipping. You could also up the romance factor by picking out a bouquet at your local florist or grocery store and hand-delivering the flowers yourself. I’m told you can buy a dozen long-stemmed roses at Costco for $15. No need to break the bank here!

If ordering online, you can add a box of chocolates to your online order for about $10 at either ProFlowers or FTD. It just does not get any easier than this! Or you could head into your favorite local chocolate shop – mine is Great Lakes Chocolate, their dark chocolate caramels are to die for – and pick out a box of your love’s favorite chocolate delicacy.

Last but certainly not least is jewelry – the #1 gifted item for Valentine’s Day. Whenever I think of jewelry, the first image that pops into my mind is Audrey Hepburn eating her breakfast at the Tiffany’s storefront with Moon River playing in the background.

Tiffany’s Valentine’s Day collection is obviously gorgeous. What’s not to love? Oh, the prices? Right…

Moving back to more budget-friendly waters, Etsy has nearly two million jewelry items available online, and many retail for well under $50. How gorgeous is this necklace? Or these earrings? Our friend Lisa of Studio Jewel has her own Etsy shop there too.

Did you want a greeting card to accompany your flowers, chocolate, and jewelry? Head into your local Dollar Tree where you can find a great assortment of cute greeting cards on the cheap.

There are so many fun ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year without racking up a ton of credit card debt. What do you have planned?

Disclosure: I was not compensated in any way for the above guide, but I am of course hoping that my darling husband will visit any of the retailers above… and soon 😉
