Affordable Valentines Day Gifts for Him and Her

Tis time for our ladies favorite made up holiday… Valentines Day. This guide is for us pedestrians who can not or will not drop $200 on a fancy dinner, massage, jewelry, yoga pants, helicopter ride or yacht party. We have rounded up some very very affordable Valentines day gifts for her and of course for him too. Maybe next year we will include the new class of Hirs as well. Here is your Affordable Valentines Day Gifts:


Is your lover a Music Festival addict or snuggle bug? Then how about a comfy AF hammock from The Grand Trunk. There are tons of different options and colors in the $70 range, which is not too shabby for a gift that might last decades. I of course went with multi colored marijuana leaves hammock.


Let us start with a safe one, wine, funny that is. Selective Wine Estates, Inc. imports Mommy’s Time Out Delicious Red and Dad’s Day Off Chianti.  The wines are made from select grapes from some of the finest vineyards in Italy. Each blend is fresh, crisp, and fruity, with a wonderful berry aroma. The structure and character of these great Italian wines makes them easy to drink with or without food. Both wines are fresh, fruity and well balanced. They retail for around $10.

How about some adorable wine and kitchen gear from BigMouth Inc and PAPYRUS. You can shop at more than 200 PAPYRUS locations in the US and Canada as well as online at BigMouth Inc is available at nationwide retailers like Target, Walmart and online at Amazon.

Do you both drink a lot and have different palates? Always mixing up you merlot and cab. Well not anymore ;p Introducing Tipsy Tags, the most elegant way to decorate your drink! Inspired by the style and class of vintage jewelry, Tipsy Tags wine charms will accompany any booze you bring perfectly! Each charm sits on the rim of any kind of glassware through the use of a magnet, rather than the traditional stem-secured tag.  They come in a variety of different styles and themes, so there is something for every type of hostess! Designs can even be customized to feature any image or logo!


Time to get sexy? Always! How about some lingerie for your loved one or side chick. For all your lingerie needs, Brayola, the ultimate online bra shop for women has fun pieces to check out. I sampled one and adore the sheerness 😉

Hard to go wrong loving, wooing or apologizing this V Day with some liquor. Dixie Vodka was born out of the need for a craft vodka with an authentic Southern pedigree. Made for Southerners by Southerners, Dixie Vodka is hand-crafted out of Charleston, South Carolina. Named “The South’s Best Tasting Vodka”, Dixie Vodka is an all-American brand from packaging materials to its Southern-sourced ingredients.

For Men


It is nice when you support a company that also gives back. Sick of your man pretending he is the cable guy? Let’s get him a snazzy and affordable belt! Mission Belt -the no-holes belt that gives back (over $1.3M so far) and starts at $34.95. Mission Belt was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank in 2013 and after a successful pitch we’ve expanded into over 1500 retail locations and have introduced many new styles including licensed products for NBA, NCAA, and NHL, as well as Nylon and Leather. I am loving my Affordable Valentines Day Gifts adjustable supple belt.


If any men know beauty, we should defer to our football players. Karlos Dansby, top-ranking NFL linebacker for the Cincinnati Bengals, knows firsthand the toll that professional football can take on skincare. Aspiring to bring hassle-free routines to men and mitigate the damaging effects of daily life on a man’s appearance, Dansby collaborated with his longtime childhood friend, business partner, and college football buddy, Chris Butler, to create Montez Renault, an elite and high-end line of grooming products sold at Nordstrom locations nationwide.

Praised by celebs such as Neil Patrick Harris, Ethan Hawke, and NBA all-star Kevin Durant, the fast-growing brand of Montez Renault lives up to its motto, “For the well-groomed life. Men who look good and feel good can be inspired to do good.” Their signature product, the 3-in-1 performance wash, was awarded “BEST BODY WASH” by Men’s Health Magazine and is the ultimate must-have for the well-groomed gent. Perfect for guys on the go, this nourishing product combines organic jojoba oil and a special blend of green tea and aloe vera extracts to produce a rich foam that cleanses away excess oil, dirt and debris–leaving hair and skin feeling clean and fresh.


This one is not an Affordable Valentines Day Gifts, but touching so I am breaking format and including. Want to serenade your love, but sound like a barrel of dying catrs? Enter Songfinch – the personal and heartfelt gift of a professional, radio-quality song written entirely from a life experience, memory, person, or anything that speaks to you – delivering the power of music in the realest way possible, for $200 per song.

The online Songfinch process is seamless, and here’s how it works:

  • A user will complete a “story guide” providing details around the experience they want to share (i.e. for Valentine’s Day: characteristics of a loved one, special moments in a relationship), who the songis intended for, the particular mood or vibe the song should capture, and the type of vocalist preferred
  • Songfinch then handpicks the perfect music artist to craft a song from the story and professional record it
  • One week later after submission – the user receives a downloadable/shareable web page known as their “Story Homepage”

Hope you enjoyed our Affordable Valentines Day Gifts!
