Under $20: Valentine’s Gifts on a Budget
Comments () | Published January 21, 2010
Bobble Bottle Opener, $5.99.
The more you drink, the tipsier these little guys get as they fill with bottle caps. Choose from red, green, and blue.
Handmade Printed Pocket Writing Journals, $4.
A writer never knows when inspiration will strike. These 40-page journals are great for jotting down thoughts on the go. For forgetful types, a cute pocket-size notebook might be just the ticket for keeping lists and remembering last-minute grocery items.
Button Ring, $6 to $9.
Even if you’re not ready to propose, a ring makes a great gift. She won’t get the wrong idea with a fabric-covered button ring from Baltimore artist Allison Fomich. The buttons are covered in a variety of fabrics, including scraps of colored vinyl, remnants of Japanese kimonos (shown here), bits of velvet, and more. The silver-plated rings are adjusted to fit a range of finger sizes.
