With Valentine’s Day less than a week away, you may be scouring the internet to find the right gift for your wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend, or another loved one. Or maybe you’re scouring the internet for gifts for many loved ones. Whether you’re shopping for one or more than one, the only thing better than finding the right gift can be finding it at the price that’s right for you. To help you find a special something that won’t break the bank, we’ve rounded up 49 Valentine’s Day gifts for folks of all sorts, from ones you’re just getting to know to longtime partners who don’t particularly care for the holiday (but might still appreciate a thoughtful gesture) — all of which are under $50. While most of the stuff is available on Amazon, we’ve found some gifts elsewhere, too, for those who like to shop around. And all of it (at the time of publication) will ship and arrive in time for the big day.
