22 Inexpensive Valentine’s Day gifts

Looking for perfect Valentine’s Day gifts on a budget? At the time of publication, we scoured catalogues and websites to find 22 perfect Valentine’s Day gift ideas for your loved one this February 14.

Silk Pyjama Set

Smooth and soft, cool and silky. Who doesn’t love the look and feel of silk? Give your Valentine the romantic gift of comfort this February as you spend the most romantic day of the year cuddled up on the couch in your new PJs in a variety of colours. Better make the popcorn before the movie starts!

Alchemist Luxe Exfoliating Cubes

These exfoliating cubes are as easy as massage and rinse after shower time. Give the perfect gift of healthy skin and choose the scent that’s just right for the one you love.

Deluxe Picnic Set

Nothing speaks of romance like a mindfully packed picnic for two outside. Put your culinary skills to the test and make some sandwiches, a salad, some drinks (and add in a few cheeky chocolates) and celebrate another day of love together. Just Google “places to picnic near me” to find the perfect location. And with Valentine’s Day in Australia being in the thick of summer, there’s no harm in setting up a picnic indoors, taking out the bottle opener and cracking open a bottle of wine.

Scented Diffuser Set

To quote Shakespeare, “Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet?” Umm, probably. But would it look as lovely as a floral diffuser set from Target?

Bath Bombs

Bath time is a sacred time. They smell beautiful and it’s fun to watch them dissolve when you drop them into the water. Pair it with a candle and an uninterrupted hour to soak and your loved one will be more relaxed than they’ve ever been.

Scented Candles

While drawing your Valentine a bath, light a fragrant candle to evoke the atmosphere of a luxury spa.

Valentine’s Day Red Heart Balloon

Imagine your Valentine coming home to the gift of a single, helium filled red heart. Sometimes it’s the smallest gestures that say the most.

Valentine’s Day jewellery

Jewellery is a staple for Valentine’s Day but that doesn’t mean you need to spend hundreds of dollars. Kmart has some beautiful pieces of jewellery and an impressively wide range to choose from.

Fun socks

Socks may not seem like the most imaginative Valentine’s Day gifts, but socks with hearts and other fun designs on them have a way of putting a smile on your loved one’s face.

HoMedics Quatro Mini Massager

Tight shoulders? Sore feet? Stiff neck? Sounds like your Valentine needs a massager. Relax them with a battery-powered DIY mini-massager and feel the tension lift from their shoulders.


Who doesn’t love a warm pair of fluffy slippers? Sure, Valentine’s Day is in the middle of February, possibly the hottest month of the year, but we can never be too prepared for winter.


The best thing about giving your loved one a gift is that they’ll be reminded of you every time they use it. Buying them a new wallet/purse will surely put a smile on their face every time they grab it before a long day.

Mini waffle maker

Who doesn’t love waffles? Treat your loved one to some mini waffles for breakfast this Valentine’s Day and you’ll be sure to win some brownie, er—waffle points.

For the music-loving Valentine, this splash-proof portable speaker is perfect for listening to Romantic Ballads on Spotify in the bathtub or on a romantic picnic together.

​Classic Polarised Sunglasses

For the Valentine who only has eyes for you, these polarised sunglasses will reduce glare while also protecting their baby blues (or greens, browns or hazels) from UV exposure.

Loose leaf tea

Tea has always been a popular drink of choice but it always tastes much better when you brew it yourself using loose tea in a diffuser. And what’s the fun of brewing a pot of tea if you can’t share it with the one you love?

Valentine’s Day Gift basket

Buying a pair of socks or a box of chocolates may not seem like enough on their own but by placing a handful of items into a gift basket, it’ll show that thought and effort went into it. Not only is it fun to pick and choose what to include in your Valentine’s Day gift basket, but it’ll show just how much you mean to them.

Photo in a frame

We can look at and share photos on our phones now but there’s something romantic about putting a beautiful couple photo inside a sleek frame and placing it on the shelf. Being able to look back on special moments together in this photo gift with a personal touch will help keep that spark alive for years to come.

Quality time

Presents are nice but if we’re looking for budgeted and thoughtful gift ideas, there’s nothing better than simply spending some quality time together. Go for a walk, make dinner together, rent a movie and watch it together in your pyjamas. Creating lasting memories is the greatest gift of all.
