Candles, chocolates and Crockd pottery kits.

Alright gals, it’s that time of year Aka Valentine’s Day. Fittingly, just as To All The Boys: Always and Forever drops on Netflix, we’re all deeply pining over the Timothée Chalamets, the Harry Styles and the Noah Centineos of our imaginary love lives.

We’re giving a gentle reminder to our followers that we’re “free and available” on the 14th of February and that if anyone has a crush on us, it’s only fair to tell us now — please. A quick PSA tho: Valentine’s Day is about celebrating love in all forms, and that includes the love you have for your friends and for yourself. But, that doesn’t stop us freaking out over what to buy.

Whether you’re single and ready to mingle or wanting to treat yourself, or buying something for that special someone in your life, here are 10 under $50 gifts to nab this Valentine’s Day

Sure, you could get the guy, gal or non-binary pal you’re crushing on a bunch of real flowers, but they’ll likely die within the week. For a floral gift that keeps on giving, we recommend LEGO’s new line of lego bouquets. While there’s a gorgeous floral set and pair of roses, the Tulips are the cheapest — and currently only ones available — and still a great gift.

LEGO Tulips, $14.99 on Lego.
