This Post: 32 (Not Too Expensive) Valentine’s Day Gifts for Teens

Okay, I admit it… I’m one sappy Mama. And, Valentine’s Day just gives me another excuse to show my sappy side to my kids! 

Every  Valentine’s Day I give my kids a small Valentine’s basket. I don’t go over the top or spend too much. I just tuck in a few things I think they might love – things I know will remind them how much they’re cherished and loved. 

I’ll add in a little candy, maybe a t-shirt, a new pair of fluffy socks, or just a trinket I came across while shopping at Target, the Dollar Store, or Walmart. They LOVE it! 

If you love surprising your teen on Valentine’s Day with a little gift or basket as much as I do, then you’ll love the ideas I rounded up on Amazon! Most are fairly inexpensive (except for a few), but all of them will put a huge Valentine’s Day smile on your teen’s face!

Check out these 32 (not over-the-top expensive) Valentine’s Day Gifts for Teens!
