10 for $10: Valentine’s Edition
I’ve done Valentine’s Day 10 for $10 posts in the past and I’m going to do it again this year. The reason? Whether or not you buy into the half-baked commercial holiday that is Valentine’s Day or not, there’s nothing wrong with showing a little love or token of affection for someone important in your life (friend, sibling, child, parent, partner, you name it). Instead of breaking the bank on a piece of jewelry or overpriced roses this Valentine’s Day, here are 10 great gift ideas for $10 or less.
Roses All The Way Soap – $7.95 @ Lush
It’s cheaper than a dozen roses and will last way longer – what’s not to love about this rose oil-infused soap?
Hipster Valentine’s Day Panties – $5 each @ La Senza
If you think sexy lingerie is too cheesy, you can at least freshen up your undies with a cute pair of cotton and lace hipsters featuring cheeky messages.
I Love You Mug – $10 @ Indigo

They can also be mixed and matched to create a statement nail look or worn as one across the board manicure.
Kate Aspen Love Beyond Measure Measuring Spoons – $3.69 @ Bed, Bath & Beyond
