Adorable V-Day Gifts on a Budget!

If you're looking for quick and easy gift solutions, these inexpensive options will melt hearts

I'm something of a last-minute shopper myself, so I totally understand the “Oh no! What the heck am I going to buy for presents?!” feeling you might be having about Valentine's Day. After all, this holiday isn't only for sickly-sweet romantic couples; it's also fun to give small tokens of cheer to family members, coworkers, roommates, and the like.

But this is no time to break the bank -- simple, sweet, thoughtful, and economical gifts are what you ought to aim for. Not sure where to start? Here are a few of the best I've come across:

Got a boss who loves to bake, or a friend who just moved in to a new home? These heart-shaped Measure Your Love Cups (above left, $14 at Fred Flare) are a useful, or at least decorative, kitchen tool.

Any beach- or summer-loving pal will enjoy these special edition LOVE Sandals ($24 by Havaianas), which include a slim strap, cutesy heart pattern and special festive shoe box.

If you are your sweetie love listening to music, the Tunes for Two Headphone Splitter (above right, $16 at Fred Flare) is perfectly intimate and appropriate.

You know that cherished colleague who keeps you sane by helping you see the brighter side of situations? Reward her glass-half-full attitude with the quirky Positivity Glass ($14 at Fred Flare).

Who are your non-romantic Valentines this year? Chime in!
