Looking for a last-minute gift for Valentine’s Day? Don’t worry you’re not the only person doing last minute shopping for that special someone, but who says Valentine’s day has to be expensive?

This Valentine’s Day, spend your money wisely and get cheap yet thoughtful gifts that your partners, families or friends will love. If you’re looking for a gift for your girlfriend or your mom try going to Bath and Body Works.

Bath and Body Works has selected a few fan favorites to add to their Valentine’s day collection that the women in your life will love. On the Bath and Body Works website, there is a buy-three, get-three-free deal or a buy-two, get-one-free.

You can purchase items like the Rose Water & Ivy3- wick candle, rose shower gel or the rose vanilla body cream. If your special one is not into fragrances this year, you cannot go wrong with an edible arrangement.

Although Edible Arrangement fruit baskets can be a little pricey, they are great gifts for someone who like healthy snacks and it shows your appreciation for that person. If Edible Arrangements is not in the budget, you can always go to Wal-Mart and get a giant teddy bear, some jewelry or box of chocolates, and a bouquet of fake flowers (fake flowers last longer).

Looking for a Valentine’s Day gift for men can be tricky, but not impossible. You can take your man out to eat or take him out to the movies. There are restaurants such as Red Lobster, Red Robin’s, or Chili’s Bar and Grill that make great food and cost-efficient. Men also enjoy cute and thoughtful gifts, so don’t be afraid to get them teddy bears and chocolates.

You can get them a wallet, a gift card to Nike, Adidas, or Polo, or simply cooking them a romantic dinner or breakfast in bed will show they are appreciated. This year on Valentine’s Day, think outside the box and get something thoughtful and meaningful because some gifts last a day, but memories last a lifetime.
