4 [Almost] Free Last Minute Valentine's Day Gifts

4 [Almost] Free Last Minute Valentine's Day Gifts

It probably feels like crunch time if you still have not locked down a gift for your sweetie yet. These are some ideas and inspiration that are easy on the budget, and can actually be pulled off in time for V-Day.


I’m a big believer in taking care of the self first. This is your little reminder to give yourself a little love in this season full of candies and sentiments. My favorite way is to write down love notes to you! If you’re anything like me you have several notebooks that you never “finished”. If not, good for you! But you’ll need to go purchase (or make) a small notebook for this. Grab said notebook, and take a page for each love note. Write one thing that is positive or you are grateful for in you own life. Sometimes I add the date if it’s relevant. And sometimes I decorate, just because.

Bonus: I am actually gifting this idea to my best friend. It’s a notebook of affirmations for her, and I started it off. The first few ideas are things I love and appreciate about her and she can use it to list her own, or continue to get input from others.


Cooking or baking is essentially free. This will take some planning and preparation, and of course ingredients, but you won’t spend nearly as much if you took them out to eat. Bake their favorite sugar treat or try cooking your Valentine’s Day meal together. Try this book or a YouTube video to follow a new recipe as a couple. 


Your girls will appreciate the quality time you give them on Galentine’s Day. Go out to brunch together and have mimosas or create your own brunch at home and invite them to hang out! I also love giving sweet baskets full of goodies for Galentine’s Day. You can usually find cute little baskets or boxes at Marshall’s or a craft store, along with some tissue paper to fluff it up a bit. Add in mixes of different types of chocolates (or fresh baked cookies if you’re looking to spend less), a few flowers, and a heartfelt note – done.

fun facts


What’s in your shop?

Stickers first and foremost. I started the shop after I realized I wasn't the only paper girl who was itching for simple stickers for women of color. You'll find digitally illustrated sticker sheets, die cut stickers, and printable/digital stickers. 

Limited-time products also include: magnets, bookmarks, post cards, and greeting cards. 

How’d you get started?

I started the blog almost five years ago as an outlet for myself, but it quickly transitioned into being just about my hobbies: travel, taking photos, and scrapbooking.

Through my blogging journey I discovered bullet journaling and my scrapbooking passions were re-ignited. I began sharing my journey with these and quickly saw a need for the stickers I was already making for myself. I gave myself six months to open up a shop, and half way through my time frame we lived through a pandemic. During my time at home I now had NO MORE excuses, so I opened up my shop!

Why the name Love Becomes Her?

I started the blog on Halloween night and one of my favorite movies (Death Becomes Her) was on. I was a major cynic back in the day but I felt that the name suited the blog because at the time so many of my blog posts were around my long-distance relationship with my now-husband. I always assumed I'd change the name later, but I think I just love it too much. It reminds me of how far I have come with learning love
