Looking for that perfect Valentine’s day gift but don't have a lot of money? Me too! I have tried to come up with a few ideas that could save you money, let me know if you have any ideas too, I'm coming up stuck with what to get my boyfriend!
Home made food gifts always go down a treat.. literally. I recently made this Rocky Road on a budget and you can find this recipe here . Wrap this in cellophane with a nice red bow, or pop into a nice gift box and you're good to go! You could also make cupcakes or salted nut crunch or cookies.. The possibilities are endless!

Alternatively if you have no time to bake something, you can always buy something edible. Chocolates and sweets are always a winner - well especially with me they are! John Lewis do a great selection of chocolates for under £5 and anything in a heart shaped box screams Valentines does it not?

Not on the high street is a great place for personalised gifts and I love these little 'bee-mine' seeds. Not only is this a practical gift, it gives you and your Valentine an excuse to do something together (plant the seeds of love). Great for gardeners and outdoorsy-types.
And last but not least, the best bargain of them all! These hearts filled with love are the perfect gift especially if you are on a budget. Not only are these designs great for Valentine’s day, they also make great anniversary or wedding gifts. The words and colours can be personalised to suit you, you could even add little phrases which mean something to the recipient or dates which mean a lot to you.
The print is only $5 (that's like £3?!) and what you do with it is endless. I have chosen to print mine and frame it with a cheap frame from Ikea. A fantastic bargain and a great gift that will last a lifetime.
Purchase your JPEG file here for just $5 for you to print and customise at your own will.
What will you be buying/making for Valentines Day?
