Valentine’s Day is just a few days away! If you are still searching for that perfect gift that won’t break the bank, then check out my $20 and under gift ideas below.

Whether your valentine loves coffee, journaling or flowers there is something for everyone!

1. Whole Foods Dozen Roses

If you love to give flowers on Valentine’s Day but don’t want to spend a fortune, check out Whole Foods Market. They always have the lowest price on flowers!  For 2024 they are running Double Dozen bunch roses for $24.99 for Amazon Prime members!! (running 2/7 to 2/14 only)

2. Potted plant

If you like the idea of flowers but want something that will last longer, consider giving a potted plant to your valentine. Some really pretty potted plants include Ficus Bonsais, Spider plants and Ivy plants. You can find most of these at Home Depot or a local garden store.

3. Photo Book or Framed Photo

You may be thinking how in the world am I going to get a photo book a week before Valentine’s Day but I have a solution! If you know your valentine would love a new photo book or framed photo for their desk, drugstores like CVS and Walgreens can make photo books in as little as one day plus they are offering up to 60% off right now.

4.  Leather Keychain

Valentines Day isn’t about getting them something big, instead sometimes the perfect gift is something they will use everyday.  A great idea is a custom leather keychain.  Personalize it and this is a great gift for a guy or girl.  Many even ship for free.

5. Anything Monogrammed

You really can’t go wrong in the south if you put a monogram on it!  I love this wood circle monogram on Etsy and many are around $18 shipped.


6. Coffee Mug or New Coffee

This one is for the coffee lovers out there! Make a custom coffee mug with both of you on it, or pick a picture from a recent trip you took together.  These are around $12 through Walgreens right now.

You can also find fun Coffee Samplers for less than $20.  We really like this 10 pack Door Country Sampler for $19.99.

You can make your own coupon book or use a free printable coupon book.
