60 of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for her and for him, all under £30

How much do you spend on Valentine’s Day? A survey conducted by Vanquis in 2019 showed that over £650 million was spent on celebrating 14 February the previous year; a number which sounds astronomical at first glance, but actually breaks down to a little under £30 per person.

Men were shown to spend more than women, but these days, we’re not just buying presents for our partners: the research showed that we shop for our children and even our cats and dogs, too. Add presents for your Galentine’s Day gang into the mix, and that initial figure can quickly stack up.

Most gift guides will suggest luxury options with dizzyingly high price tags, but we believe you don’t need to spend a fortune to show your nearest and dearest that you care, whether it’s Valentine’s Day or any other day of the year.

So with this in mind, we’ve compiled 60 brilliant ideas that are all under £28.45 – the exact amount that came out as the average spend in the UK. Whether you’re after a cute gift for the girls, a thoughtful token for your other half or something to keep the kids sweet, you can’t go wrong with one of these.
