Quick Tips

Shop the Thrift for an Ecofriendly Valentine’s Day

Still stuck for a Valentine’s Day gift? Try the local thrift or secondhand store! Supplied by generous donations to ClothingDonations.org, many thrift stores are full of gently used clothing, accessories, books and gifts that people will love at a fraction of the price of what they might cost new; they are also a great place to find cookware if you’re preparing a special feast. It’s an ecofriendly choice to reduce and and recycle gifts, and proceeds from the sale of donated goods help support veterans’ initiatives nationwide!

Sweets for the Sweet

Does your sweetest have a sweet tooth? Chocolate and other treats are a natural choice for Valentine’s Day gift-giving, and there are plenty of options that won’t break the bank. Chowhound suggests heart-shaped chocolates in rainbow colors, peppermint bark or a selection of raw artisanal honeys in addition to the classic “conversation” cookie, ultra-budget-friendly Reese’s hearts or chocolate-dipped strawberries. Best of all, when you give a gift that’s consumable, it can’t add to the #clutter of everyday life — the lucky recipient can indulge without worrying about where to put it.

Edible Gifts Can’t Contribute to Clutter

If you want to give a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift, but don’t want it #cluttering up the house, try making something that can be consumed and enjoyed immediately by your loved one(s). Bread, biscotti, chocolate truffles, or a gourmet meal — anything that pleases their palates is a sure winner. Many adults appreciate a good bottle of wine, and while you may not want to stomp the grapes yourself, you can personalize the label with a love quote, Better Homes & Gardens suggests. Perhaps the recipient will offer to share the wine over a romantic dinner!

Thrifty Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Valentine’s Day calls for a special celebration of relationships, but it needn’t cost a lot of money to show you care. You can use your creativity to craft a special gift. Good Housekeeping suggests an array of options including fresh-baked bread, hand-stitched sachets and a jar filled with a year’s worth of date-night ideas. Make a flower vase out of a disused Mason jar and make a heart-shaped bath bomb to pamper that special someone. Look for supplies at local craft stores and at thrifs supplied by generous donations to ClothingDonations.org.
