The Budget Friendly Valentines Day Gift Guide

Looking for a Valentines Day gift for your significant other(s) that wont break the bank? With Valentine’s Day being a £1bn-a-year industry I’ve put together the ultimate budget gift guide, filled with both traditional and unique Valentine’s Day gift ideas.


Flowers = FREE

Freddies Flowers deliver fresh flowers across the UK. A bunch of Freddie Flowers will usually set you back £24 a week but using my referral code “EmmaJ28” you’ll get your first bunch for free! If your valentine isn’t likely to appreciate flowers then you could always send them to a family member or friend.

Lush Bath Bombs = £3.95

Lush have released some amazing emoji themed bath bombs to celebrate valentines day. Valentines day themed bath bombs include: ‘Love Boat’, ‘Love Token’, ‘Peachy’ and ‘Aubergine’.

DIY Valentines Card = Free

Why not make your own valentines day card by downloading a printable template and personalising it to your loved one. You can get some inspiration from these free printable cards.

You could upload pictures of the two of you together to give it that person touch or include an inside joke that only you two will understand.

Shopmium Ben & Jerry’s = Free

Shopmium is a mobile shopping app (available on iOS and Android) that offers a range of freebies and money off deals. I check the app every time I’m at my local super market to see what free food/drinks I can pick up (they’ve offered free chocolate bars and money off wine before!). When you download the app for the first time you’ll be offered a free full size tub of Ben & Jerry’s as a sign up offer, great for your valentine!

A Romantic Meal = £10+

My partner and I prefer to treat each other to experiences for valentines day rather than gifts. My favourite provider of getaways/meals/experiences is buyagift! They have a 60-day refund policy and offer free exchanges if you change your mind! Some of their most popular valentines gifts include spa days, 3 course meals and comedy passes.
