It’s crazy to think that Valentine’s Day is almost here again. As much as our world has changed during the current COVID-19 pandemic, time still seems to fly just as fast. Even if we aren’t traveling and socializing as much. But, this pandemic doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be able to celebrate our love with our partners. In fact, it should give us even more reason to celebrate how much our Valentine’s mean to us. But celebrating Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to mean spending an inordinate amount of money. And it shouldn’t this year due to the current economic state of affairs. So, we have put together a list of some of the most delicious Valentine’s Day treats under $10 to help you celebrate without breaking the bank.
See’s Candy Box
I am not really a big chocolate fan. But, I will make an exception for See’s Candy any day. I’m not sure if it’s because this is the candy I grew up with in California or if it’s just the taste of their chocolate. But there is something about it I can’t deny; it’s deliciously awesome!
Luckily, they have a few different boxed chocolate options all year round to satisfy almost any chocolate lover’s palate. And Valentine’s Day is no different, thankfully. They have a 3.6 oz, 6 piece assorted Valentine’s Day chocolate box for only $8. If you don’t live on the west coast or have a pop up store near you during this time of year, then you can still buy directly from their website.
Godiva Chocolate Box
If See’s Candy isn’t directly up your Valentine’s alley, then there is always Godiva. They seem to be loved by almost all chocolate lovers, so you probably can’t go wrong here. Of course, they normally have a lot of different assorted chocolate boxes to choose from. But, these can definitely become a bit pricey. So, if you are trying to stick to a budget of under $10, they have a great Valentine’s option for you.
During Valentine’s Day, Godiva has a 4 piece assorted chocolate gold favor box for $9.95. You can choose between adding a red or black ribbon to the box to make it even fancier. For no extra charge!
Mason Jar Treats
Almost everybody I know loves Hershey Kisses. They are simple, yet pretty tasty chocolate. And, they usually don’t cost a ton of money either. Plus, these can be found at pretty much any major grocery store, plus a lot of the major retail chains, and online. So they are easy to come by. I found a larger 17.9 oz bag of Hershey Kisses for $5.89 at one of my local big box stores. However, you would probably only need half the bag to fill up a mason jar.
If you don’t have any mason jars lying around currently, it might be wise to invest in a few because they have many uses. This 6-pack of mason jars with airtight lids tends to sell for around $19.99. This makes each jar cost approximately $3.33.
So between the mason jar and the Hershey Kisses, we are looking at a cost of around $6.28 plus tax per jar. If you want to get really fancy with it, you can splurge for a nice velvet ribbon and make a creative label for the front. Even if you add those, this Valentine’s Day sweet treat will still come in well under $10.
Valentine’s Day Movie Night Package
If snuggling up next to a fire and watching a movie with your Valentine is what you have planned, then a movie night package might be just the ticket. Movies are so much cheaper these days, so you can probably find a great one on any number of streaming services, such as Hulu. And if you’re already paying for the service, it won’t cost you any more money. Which lets you focus on the treats to accompany the movie instead.
If you got some of those aforementioned mason jars, then here is another place you can put them to good use. A hot chocolate mason jar is a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day in front of the fire with a good movie. In the mason jar, pour one cup of hot chocolate mix, chopped up dark chocolate and then top with marshmallows. You can get fancy with the ribbon and creative label again if you wish. The cost of this one will depend upon which ingredients you ultimately go with.
And you can pair this sweet treat with some Valentine’s themed cookies, such as Linzer, Oreo’s or your own homemade peanut butter cookies. I have a fantastic recipe for peanut butter cookies that only have 3 ingredients in them and cost approximately $.16 per cookie. So you really can’t beat that pairing!
