Thrift Town has some unique and inexpensive ways to spread the love, and keep money in the bank. The below ideas range in price from around $10 to under $1, proving one doesn’t have to spend a fortune to make someone else feel like a million bucks.

  •     Vintage jewelry. Peruse thrift store jewelry cases for unique and beautiful pieces that anyone would love.    
  •     Showcase a precious child’s, or collection of family handprints with a thrifted frame
  •     Cuddly stuffed animals proclaiming their undying love…that don’t cost $24.99! Thrift stores have them for around $2 each.
  •     Unique jars can hold lots of lovely things such as; romantic coupons, cookies, or as seen in the accompanying photo, a handmade snow globe. Most jars cost under $1 at Thrift Town.
  •     Create adorable Valentine cards like “I wheelie like you,” or “don’t ever change,” and embellish with a hot wheels car, or collectible coins. Both of which can be found in thrift shops.
  •     Treat that special someone to breakfast in bed. Thrift stores are full of unique trays and mugs for pennies on the dollar.
  •      For those crafty cupids out there, try creating hearts out of thrifted books, or making heart hair clips out of thrifted fabric, both of which can be done for about a buck.
  •     Make a homemade floral arrangement and place it in a thrifted vase for around $2.
