These Awesome Valentine's Day Gift Ideas Are Affordable AF


Gifting some lip butter to your lover may sound cheesy, but this luxe variety is nothing like your average Chapstick. Crafted with moisturizing shea butter and essential oils, this all-natural balm packs four times the amount of product as your average tube.

And if this standout Gardiner shop has you licking your lips for more, make a beeline for the lavender lip butter or suds it up with rose geranium soap.
