You don’t need to spend a ton of money in order to show your Valentine how much you care (that’s what birthdays are for! Jokes.). The truth is, 25 bucks should be plenty, especially considering many believe Valentine’s Day is nothing but a commercial holiday.

Whether you’re shopping for a long-term SO, a new-to-you person with serious potential, your BFF, or yourself (you’re allowed to buy yourself things!) this little guide has perfectly sweet options that won’t break the bank. And they’re all eligible for Prime shipping, so no one has to know that you waited until now to order something!

Note: If you want to spend more than $25, just buy more things off this list.
