Cute & Simple Valentine's Day Gift Ideas!

Believe it or not! Valentine's Day is only a few weeks away. If your on a budget, then you probably can't afford to give your loved ones diamonds and roses. This year, I've teamed up with Oriental Trading to provide you with a few Cute & Simple Valentine's Day Gift Ideas that are very affordable. All the products featured in this post can be purchased on the Oriental Trading's 2018 Valentine's Day Party Supply landing page.

Notebooks, Bookmarks, & Pencils!

Many people, young and old, love to write in journals and diaries. I recommend giving them the Fuzzy Valentine Notepads (retails for $14.99, but it's currently on sale for $11.98). The 5 3/4" x 8 1/4" notepads have 30 blank pages. The cover is made out of a fuzzy material. One package comes with 6 notepads; three notepads have hearts on the cover and the other three have a swirl design.

If you're going to give a journal as as gift, then I recommending getting some writing utensils to go with it. Oriental Trading has gobs of pencils and pens to choose from, but for this post I went with the Valentine Monster Pencils (retails for $4.49), which comes in a package of 24 pencils. Each pencil has a cute little monster on it along with a heart-shaped saying, such as "Eye Like You."

You might need to mark what page you're on in your journal, so I'm recommending giving a bookmark along with the notepads and pencils. As you can see in the photo above, I picked out the Peanuts Valentine Bookmarks (retails for $4.29), which comes in a package of 24 bookmarks, featuring either Snoopy, Charlie Brown, or Lucy.  There are five different sayings, "Be a Friend," "Be Sweet," "Be Mine," "Be Kind,"Be My Valentine," or "Be Huggy." The back of the bookmarks have a "To:" and "From:" spots.

Chocolate Roses

If you can't afford to give roses as a Valentine's gift, then your next logical step is to give a box of candy. Or you could give a mixture of both.

Pictured above are the Red Foil-Wrapped Chocolate Candy Roses (retails for $11.99, but is on sale for $8.98 per dozen). Each rose has a 14" plastic stem with leaves and a 2" chocolate rose that is wrapped in red foil. The chocolate rose is hollow and has a nice rich flavor.

Bears & Pillows

Besides candy and roses, one of the most popular Valentine's gift is a teddy bear. Prices and sizes of teddy bears vary, some are expensive and others are affordable. Oriental Trading has a cute 15" Valentine Stuffed Polar Bear that's currently on sale for $4.78. The white fluffy bear is wearing a bow-tie and is holding a red heart that says,"I love you."

Then there's the Red Heart Chenille Pillow (retails for $11.99) that would make a great gift. It measures 14"L x 14"W and features a chenille front and felt backing.

While I was looking for items to feature in this post, I stumbled upon the Angel with Heart figurine on the Oriental Trading website, and I instantly thought it would make an adorable Valentine's Day present. The resin figurine measures 8"H x 2 3/4"W. As you can see from the photo, the angel is holding a red heart. It's a cute little figurine!


Being the coffee lover that I am, I had to have one coffee related item for Valentine's Day! And it's the Red Heart Ceramic Mugs (retails for $8.49), which comes in a set of two 8oz mugs. The heart-shaped mugs are small, but well-made. They would make an excellent for any anyone who loves to drink coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.
