25 Valentine's Day Gifts Under $25 That Your Partner Will Love

When you're in a relationship, the pressure to pick out a good Valentine's Day gift can be pretty high. The thing is, it always feels like you no sooner wrap up the holidays, before it's time to tap into your creativity — and your wallet — once again.

It can be tough to keep up with gift-giving expectations, but don't panic. The world is full of affordable Valentine's Day gifts that feel fun and special — and yet won't break the bank. Whether it's a pair of funny socks, a game you can play together, or even a piece of jewelry, the options are more abundant than you may realize. These 25 gifts, for instance, are all under $25, making them incredibly budget-friendly.

Keep in mind, though, that there's nothing wrong with spending quality time with a partner, writing a meaning note in a hand-made card, or giving your partner a bunch of flowers from Trader Joe's. As long as you give the gift with love and purpose, it'll mean the world on Valentine's Day
