Whether it’s the early stages of a casual thing or you’re seriously settled down, you’re sure to love a bargain, so for Valentine’s Day we’ve rounded up some of the cheapest, nicest things from the fanciest brands — including an entry-level Aesop lip cream, a charming Coach purse, and a status-y hand cream — all inexpensive enough to make great gifts.

Wear your heart on your sleeve (by wearing it on your chest).

£39

Because even goths like Valentine’s Day.

Cashmere Bed Socks
£28

Cashmere socks are an effortlessly luxurious gift, and these ones are under £30 at the moment.

Romantic note cards are a very giftable, very romantic option.

Made from seven kinds of roses, plus lemon and honeycomb, this soap is a great alternative to actual flowers.

A leather charm you can get personalised with your own handwritten message.

Because you probably can’t gift a wax jacket for Valentine’s Day, why not opt for a grain-leather cardholder instead?

Acne Card Holder
£54

An affordable accessory in a dramatic hot-pink hue.

We like the Art Deco detailing on the lipstick case.

These decadent pink truffles would make a suitably maximalist token this Valentine’s Day.

Proof that romantic gifts don’t have to be heart-shaped.

With notes of cardamom and leather, this is a decidedly grown-up deodorant.
