Valentine’s Day, like any other holiday, can get pricey pretty quickly. With that said, I love giving a little gift to my family and friends to show them how much they mean to me.

For example, I always get my kids a little something to open on the holiday. When Trevor was little, I usually gave him a Lego set or those Lego figures. He loved his little “guys” and played with them constantly. These days, I like to give him a new piece of red Phillies gear.

Kylie is a fan of soft, cozy things so a pair of fuzzy socks or a throw blanket is a go-to for her. But when she was younger, I always got her Breyer horses so she could play with a new “pony.”

None of these Valentine’s Day Gifts are big, but they appreciate the little token.

If you’d like to give a little something to your loved one this holiday, I have a perfect list for you. It’s filled with some affordable and meaningful gifts that you can share with your children, spouse or best friend.

If Your Valentine Needs To Relax

Help your dear family member or friend relax with a few of these picks. I’m sure we could all use some time to unwind!

Find the candles HERE.

Whenever I’m trying to relax, I’ll always have a candle lit nearby. And the “Home” candles from the Just Jill Shop are a great year-round scent!

These candles each burn for approximately 75 hours and when they run out, you can turn the jars into pot holders for plants.

When the weather is cold, there’s nothing I love more than dressing in a robe and slippers. Since I’m a fan of Dearfoams in general, I wanted to show you these Dearfoams Cable Knit Slippers.

They come in a few colors but the pink makes them perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Find the shower steamers HERE.

For the ultimate day of hair pampering, gift this adorable and convenient GoGo Mini Hair Dryer from Calista.

I remember the days when I read a book to my kids every night before they went to bed. I didn’t realize it at the time, but those are some of my fondest memories over the years.

If you have a young child or grandchild, I recommend the Llama Llama I Love You by Anna Dewdney as one of their Valentine’s Day Gifts. The rhyming is so fun and the meaning behind the words is even better.
