Gift Guide for Him | Budget Gift Guide: Under $20 | Gifts for the Home 

American Apparel scarf ($28)
There’s nothing better than spending hours snuggled up in bed with your honey during the cold winter months. For those days that require leaving the bed, keep her warm from afar with a cozy scarf. This classic, two-tone scarf has four color options. It may not be the same as blankets and a warm body, but it’s something.

Dogeared Love necklace ($68)
While heart jewelry may be the most overdone Valentine’s Day gift ever, embrace the cliché with style and give her this necklace. A handcrafted stone heart pendant rests at the end of a delicate chain. The heart itself looks vaguely like a fossil, with its hammered surface and slightly misshaped form, which distinguishes the necklace from its generic, often-cheesy cousins.

Fisheye camera ($48)
Give her the gift that keeps on giving with this Lomography fisheye camera, which also comes in green, blue, and white. The 170-degree view compresses everything into a distorted circular image. Turn the everyday into art and see the world from a different perspective—together of course. Don’t forget to buy the film ($14).
