When it comes to Valentine’s Day- it seems it isn’t just for your one and only anymore. Those sweetheart gifts- like little red heart boxes filled with chocolates are kind of a go-to treat for all of your loved ones.

And even though I love those little hearts as much as everyone does- I also like to find a few special treats to include to make it more personal. So today I am sharing 5 simple, inexpensive gift ideas for your loved ones for Valentine’s Day.

#1. Grandparents

I always love to give grandparents a box of chocolates and  a little treat- and I like to try to think of something they will be able to enjoy often. A perfect idea for Grandma is a warm throw. Something that she can wrap up in while enjoying her favorite show on t.v. and for Grandpa- maybe a new pair of slippers.

#2. The kids

Of course those hearts filled with chocolates are big favorites for the kids- but a few other ideas  are books or board games. I love things that are a little more interactive and both books and games are something that kids can enjoy on their own but also together with family and friends.

#3. Friends

You BFF deserve a sweet treat as well to let them know they are special to you. I am always a fan of kitchen and cooking pieces for gifts-and I picked up some of the most gorgeous copper pots at HomeGoods recently. I love the idea of creating a gift basket by filling a pot with some of their specialty pastas, sauces and a wooden spoon for your sweetest friend.

#4. Teacher

Teachers spend so much time with our kids that they are often like family. So why not treat them with a little sweet treat this Valentine’s as well? Depending on what their hobbies are – maybe something like a cookbook or a pretty coffee mug for their desk.

#5. For Anyone

The perfect gift for anyone? That is simple.  A HomeGoods gift card. I love to give gift cards to my sons girlfriends and yes, my sons love to get them too. And  they are always a perfect gift for my mom and sister and sister in-laws for any occasion- because they all love HomeGoods as much as I do.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
