50 Valentine’s Day gifts under £50, for her and for him

This year, we could all do with a reason to celebrate and treat our nearest and dearest, and Valentine’s Day is as good as any. Whether you’re a Valentine’s enthusiast or think it’s all a bit corny, either way it’s a nice excuse to spoil your special one and remind them how much they’re loved.

Once you’ve got a Valentine’s card sorted and you’ve ordered your meal kit for restaurant-quality food at home, you’ll want to think about a present. Whether it’s for your husband, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, best friend, mum or even yourself (we’re all for self-gifting), we’ve found 50 Valentine’s Day gifts under £50 that anyone would be happy to receive on the day of love.

If you’re looking for something more than flowers (although we’ve got those too), we’ve found 50 Valentine’s Day gifts – from beauty and foodie to letterbox, luxury and novelty – from the high street and independent brands that are perfect for him and for her.
