Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2 - Valentine Gifts Under $20

Looking for fabulous Valentine's Day gifts that are different from the same old candy-and-flowers routine, and won't hurt your wallet?  We have you covered with these great gift ideas from some of our favorite etsy shops!

Like this adorable pair of chalkware red squirrels, ready to scamper up somebody's tree, or the side of their house - I remember these from my childhood in the 60s. A steal from SpaceModyssey at only $18 -and be sure to browse for more great deals while you're there.

These amazing Japanese paper dolls from the 1950s, which you can find at Sandshoe Vintage, would delight girls of any age - and the $12 price tag makes them more than affordable!  This lovely Aussie shop has oodles of authentic vintage Japanese goodies and other wonderful things.

A trip into Rhody Art will provide you with so many truly incredible gift choices for $20 and under - remember that art is a gift that keeps on giving! This shop has quirky, funny fridge magnets, stunning original art cards that you can order individually or in sets, original small mixed media art works - some of these come with their own little wooden easels, like mine!  You can also find these wonderful ink pens that have reproductions of Rhodyart's artwork on them - we can both personally guarantee that these will help you write brilliant, insightful things  :::winking:::
These beautiful vintage teardrop shaped amethyst purple chandelier crystals would be lovely hanging in your sweetheart's window - $11 gets you both.  I found them at Vintage Home Shop, where there's a great selection of fab vintage items perfect for Valentine's Day gift-giving.
This groovy 1970s egghead couple are a pair of vintage salt and pepper shakers and would make the perfect Valentine gift if your sweetie remembers the 70s - or doesn't remember, as the case may be :::makes peace sign:::  These are available for less than $10 at Poppie's House - another shop with a big selection of affordable great vintage items.

I found this incredible 1960s beaded handbag at Living a Vintage Life for $8 - yes.  EIGHT. DOLLARS.  Gorgeous items plus terrific kitschy stuff and great prices are what fill the shelves at this shop - do not miss!

This fabulous vintage brass owl is right out of the 1970s and would make a great gift for an owl-collecting Valentine for only $16 - you can find him at DollyBird Vintage, a shop that has affordable mid century modern, mod, psychedelic and kitschy treasures galore.
How sweet is that little ceramic mouse sleeping under mushrooms?  Find him and these other precious Woodland Littles for $8 to $10 each, along with lots of other goodies, at Eli's Vintage Finds.
