10 Little Ways to Treat Yourself for Valentine’s Day

Inexpensive pick-me-ups for the most important person in your life.

Racked has affiliate partnerships, which do not influence editorial content, though we may earn commissions for products purchased via affiliate links. We also occasionally accept products for research and reviewing purposes. See our ethics policy here.

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

On a day created to celebrate love and all of the good that it does (along with other things, like selling egregious amounts of chocolate and diamonds), you shouldn’t be restricted to only treating other people. If you’re participating at all this year, why not make your first priority to give a gift wherein the tag reads “To: Myself, From: Myself?” Because single or not, no one is better at gifting you than you.

To get the ideas flowing, we’ve rounded up a handful of treat-yourself worthy picks, from soothing beauty products to feel-good lingerie. Plus, everything here is under $50, because there is arguably no better gift than keeping your bank account in tact.

Check out our picks below, or see our Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for even more ideas.
