5 Great Low or No-Cost Gift Ideas for Valentine's DayIn our society, we typically equate great gifts with great cash. But you don’t need to splurge on a gift to spoil your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. In fact, it’s often the low or no-cost presents that are most meaningful anyway.

“To this day one of the most thoughtful gifts my husband has given me was a fishing tackle box he bought at a garage sale when we were first married,” said Christina Steinorth, MFT, a psychotherapist and author of Cue Cards for Life: Thoughtful Tips for Better Relationships

Steinorth doesn’t even fish. But her husband bought the box to help her organize her jewelry, which she was regularly misplacing. She still uses it today.

If you’re stumped on what to do for your beloved, here are five gift ideas that cost little to no money but nonetheless make a sweet treat.

  1. Well these are amazing gifts. I was looking for some post valentine cheaper gifts, but surprisingly I came across your article. These moral gifts are superior to the physical gifts everyone buys. I will try your gifts this time.

  2. Well these truly are some great gift ideals. I always try to come up with some type of surprise for valentine’s Day: like a trip, or sporting event to go to. But we do sometimes just listen to music dance and have a glass of wine together. But all the ideals that were posted on this site are very good one’s I do believe I will try the one that says “write down the reasons you love your mate and frame it then place it were they can see it” that is a wonderful Ideal. And I was just looking for a child Psychology Class and came across this site I am glade I did have a chance to read it.
