Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about what you can gift your special person.

When you’re with someone you love, the price or the materialistic attributes don’t matter. It’s the emotions and feelings that go behind the gift that have real value. From DIY to budget-friendly ideas, there are a thousand options to explore and Cooglife has a few favorite mentions.

Vintage Music Box

If you want to be old-school and subtle, you can gift your significant other a vintage music box for a decent price. 

It’s cute, sweet and thoughtful as you can even find a song that means something to the two of you. This hand-carved wooden music box can play songs like “You Are My Sunshine” to”Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

There is no better gift than a handwritten letter to your loved one on a special day. It’s intimate and cute. There are tons of different ideas that you can find on Pinterest or various places online.

Cook For Them

If you’re someone who’s good at cooking, then you should definitely do this! Be the Lara Jean Covey to your Peter Kavinsky.

You can cook their favorite food. It can either be a three-course meal if you have time but since most of us reading this are full-time college students, it can easily be something as simple as a brownie or a cupcake.

You can be fancy, make it all pink, decorate it with accessories and make it into a special V-day date!

Face Socks

If humor and being silly together is your love language, then you should definitely check this out. These face socks are extremely funny and will definitely make your significant other laugh.
