Valentine’s Day Gifts – Splurge or Save?
Many times, it’s not the cost of the object that counts — it’s the thought. And for Valentine’s Day, cost is certainly a factor: According to our Gifts.com survey, most people reported they won’t spend more than $50 on a Valentine’s Day gift. Still, no matter how many years you’ve been together or if you’ve just started dating, you want to give a thoughtful gift. So, we have some great side-by-side comparisons of different gifts that you can choose to splurge or save on, without compromising on quality or thoughtfulness. Here are some awesome Valentine’s Day gift ideas that will show your special someone how much you care, whether you spent hundreds of dollars or stick to under 50 bucks.
You are eyeing this gorgeous Marc by Marc Jacobs watch ($350) with bold, three-eye chronograph design, but it’s a little out of your price range. Instead, surprise him with this trendy bracelet watch from Diesel ($96) that features a masculine matte finish.
