Valentines Day is almost here, and it is time to start searching for the perfect gift for your loved ones, significant others, or friends! Buying all of the traditional flowers, cards, chocolates, and teddy bears for everyone on your list sure can add up after all your shopping, which is why I am here to give you a list of great gifts, all with a perfect price.

Mrs. Rosales, a Religion teacher at Rosary Academy was asked what perfect gift she would like from her significant other an she stated, “While I love cut flowers, I would much prefer a plant. An indoor plant or even a plant like a rose bush I can put in my garden. A gift that creates a lasting memory!”

Any plant is the perfect gift for Valentines Day; they are super easy to take care of and look great in any corner or part of a room.

Who doesn’t love candles?! They smell amazing and are worth the price. Any candle would be a great gift and you can even add a gift card or box of chocolates.

  • Ghirardelli Assorted Chocolate Carmel Hearts Gift Box: $13.95

Chocolates are one of the most given gift to friends or loved ones, and they are perfect because they vary in flavor like dark chocolate, white chocolate and even come in different filings.

  •  Green Pillow Soft Lumbar Back Cushion Plush Stuffed Toy from Walmart: $13.68


I think that anyone would like a cuddly, big plush to sleep with or even to watch a movie with.

A Starbucks gift card or any gift card is a small, but cute gift that you can give to a friend or even a teacher.

  • Any Book of Interest from Barnes and Nobles for your partner or friend:$10.00-$30.00 (price depends on book of choice)

Any book is always a great choice because there are so many different types of genres, this is a book that inspired me because it tells an amazing story of a strong woman going from a young girl with dreams to working for NASA.

Jewelry is so cute and so affordable. You can mix and match it or even add a bouquet of flowers with your gift.

  • Oversized Blanket Sweatshirt Hoody from Walmart (comfy) : $22.95

Victoria Lopez ’22 was asked what gift she would like to receive from her friend for Valentines Day, she states, “I would really like the Comfy because it is so warm, fuzzy and great to put on while watching a great movie”.

This is the best gift yet! It is so comfy and warm. It would be great to gift to someone especially during this time while we are at home due to COVID and catching up on all of our Netflix shows.

Carmel apples are an affordable gift and can be wrapped up so cute with a nice little note!

Chick-Fil-A is delicious and who wouldn’t want a heart platter filled with chicken nuggets?

All of these Valentines Day gifts are perfect for anyone on your list or even for yourself. They are all great gifts, but also very affordable you can even mix and match all of these gifts together to gift away to someone special.
