This Valentine’s Day, forget about the overpriced generic cards and fancy flowers. We’ve picked some awesome products that are budget friendly and memorable!
Isabella’s Cookie Company
Grab a full cup of (skim) milk before biting into these cookies! Isabella’s Cookie Company is a delectable dessert perfect for Valentine’s Day. Made with all-natural ingredients and no preservatives, these cookies will satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth. The bags of cookies come wrapped in a pretty package, and there are many different variations to check out including a vegan line. We sampled the chocolate and vanilla Sugar Rush cookies. The chocolate one tasted like a moist brownie…so delicious! So grab a bag, and get ready to share! The cookies come in a bag of 5 “bites” for $3.75 and a bag of 10 for $6.50.

Kernel Season’s Popcorn Seasoning
Forget the traditional super salty and buttery popcorn. Kernel Season’s Popcorn Seasoning is the new go-to for popcorn flavors. There are so many different flavors that all look delicious! We tasted the pizza, bacon cheddar and chocolate marshmallow seasonings with our fat-free popcorn. It really adds a kick to that boring popcorn taste that we’re all used to. You can even add these seasonings to other food, too. It’s tempting to do so! Each package costs $3.99. This would be fun for a girl’s night in movie night anti-Valentine’s Day festivity! Did someone say Disney movie marathon!!

These vibrant gummy candies make a great Valentine’s Day gift for a friend, boyfriend and even yourself! Choose from flirty, cheeky, and sassy candies (among others!). Purchase online or at your local Macy’s for $5.99 per pack.

Aromatherapy with Poo~Pourri
Whether you’re going on a date this Valentine’s Day or hanging out with the girls, don’t leave the house without Poo~Pourri’s No. 2 Pink Deodorizer. I like this item because it’s small enough to fit in my purse, and it has a classy scent…nothing like baby powder deodorant. Poo~Pourri offers a full collection of smell-good products sold for less than $20, so it’s worth checking out. Additional products are also targeted toward college students, men and kids. Everyone will dig the aroma!
