We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day—my husband has resisted the notion from the start. He’d prefer that we spontaneously give each other flowers or plan a getaway rather than get caught up in the hype once a year. And we do. But I know we’re the exception, not the rule. If you’re looking for cheap Valentine’s Day gifts but don’t want to look cheap when you give them, here are a few options:
- You can save up to 30% on gift cards at PlasticJungle.com. I just checked, and you can get some great deals—There are Pier 1 Imports gift cards selling for 18% off, JC Penney for 14% off, Bath & Body Works for 14% off, Ann Taylor for 13% off, Morton’s Steakhouse for 13% off, 1-800-Flowers for 13% off, Outback Steakhouse for 13% off, Williams Sonoma for 12% off, Brooks Brothers for 12% off, Pottery Barn for 12% off, Old Navy for 11% off, Kohls for 11% off, Banana Republic for 11% off, & Abercrombie & Fitch for 11% off, to name a few. You can give the gift cards as a gift, but if I were you, I’d buy a discounted gift card & use it to buy an awesome (and hopefully sale-priced) actual gift. And save a bit on dinner out while I’m at it.
- And you can save on everything from weekend getaways to spa treatments at Groupon.com. Today on Groupon, you’ll find a ton of great deals that are perfect for Valentine’s Day: You can buy Groupons for a couple’s massage or other spa treatments in D.C., St. Louis, Seattle, Houston, & San Diego. Looking for a romantic night or weekend away? Try one of the hotel deals in Los Angeles, Kansas City, Columbus, Charlotte, & Dallas. One or two of the deals had restrictions for Valentine’s Day, but most did not. And remember: The offers expire at midnight tonight (January 31). If you miss out, keep checking Groupon this week. They’re likely to offer a good mix of Valentine’s Day-themed gift and entertainment options.
