I have a crazy proposition. This Valentine’s Day, while others are frantically mall-hopping and draining their bank accounts on the same mass-produced (and often overpriced) stuff, you’ll be kicking back with the perfect and affordable gift for your loved one. Before you accuse me of spreading false hope, let me assure you that I’m here to play Cupid…at least in the gift-giving sense.
Now that the Christmas frenzy is long behind us, I’ve rounded up some beautiful gifts from the site that will emerge victorious in the head-to-head battle against splurge items. If nothing here tickles your fancy, be sure to check out Krrb’s curated market of gifts for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re on the hunt for jewelry or the coziest finds, I’ve got you covered. Let’s get started!
An elegant necklace
Who can say no to the traditional color of love? Deep red garnet looks perfect paired with a gold chain, but the cost can sneak up on you.
The Splurge: This garnet necklace is definitely pretty, but that price is totally beatable.
The Steal: Exact same size, same chain…way better price. Even better, the more heart-shaped cut of this garnet makes for a more special gift for Valentine’s Day (and leaves more money to spend on dessert).
When it comes to Valentine’s Day, you need to set the mood. Make the room look and feel ten times cozier with a luxurious throw!
The Splurge: Handmade Moroccan blankets are a hot commodity any time of the year, but this wool blanket seems about 2x too much for our liking…
The Steal: Much better. Get ready to cozy up in king-sized, Moroccan wool comfort that lasts way beyond Valentine’s Day.
The perfect vessel
Display that bouquet! A special floral arrangement doesn’t belong in an everyday container, but that doesn’t mean you have to go crazy looking for the right one.
The Splurge: This Mid-century Blenko amber vase is a nice way to hold your flowers…
The Steal: …but this Mid-century vase is prettier and way less money! Now you can snag an even more impressive bouquet with the money you save, while the vase plays a nice supporting role of looking good and functioning even better.
A touch of sparkle
Delicate and timeless, rose quartz jewelry is flattering with almost any look. But what should you expect to pay for a pair of these earrings? We’ve cracked the code.
The Splurge: Quartz and rose gold look nice in this teardrop earring format, but why spend that much?
The Steal: By buying these handmade rose quartz and 14-karat gold earrings, you’ll be choosing a gorgeous gift and supporting a talented artist. What’s better than that?
Something a little more luxurious
Who says Valentine’s Day gifts are restricted to chocolate, flowers or jewelry? Nothing says “I love you” like a cozy and gorgeous vintage coat, especially when you find a great deal.
The Splurge: Fox fur and mohair make the perfect pair in this vintage swing coat. But you might feel hesitant facing winter weather in such a steep investment.
The Steal: With over $500 saved and extra fur detailing (for extra appeal), your Valentine will be snug and stylish all winter long in this gorgeous vintage mohair and fox fur coat.
