Looking for cheap Valentine’s gifts for her? Every year, doesn’t it seem like Valentine’s Day falls during a time you are the most strapped for cash?  If you’re like many American’s you’re still paying off debt from last year. Consumers are estimated to spend as much as $150.00 on their partner this year and this doesn’t even include dinner. No need to worry. You don’t have to spend a lot to show her how much you care. Ignore those stupid Jared commercials – she is happy enough to just be spending Valentine’s Day with you (insert awe here). Here is a list of adorable and inexpensive gifts just for your Pookie.

Here’s our list of top cheap Valentine’s gifts for her

1. Love her to the moon

You can’t actually rope her the moon but you can tell her you tried with this Ambient Moon Light from Mamre.

Let her know how much you admire her hard work and tenacity by giving her a book that she can relate to like Women In Science – 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World which is part of a series of kick-ass books by writer and illustrator Rachel Ignotofsky. Don’t forget to write something sweet to her inside one of the pages (wink).

5. Gotta get a GUND – Deangelo the Valentine’s Day Dog

We admit, stuffed animals can be pretty cheesy for Valentine’s Day but not when they come from GUND. Get Deangelo the Valentine’s Day Dog for your favorite dog lover or find one that resembles her own dog to really win her heart.
