Whether you’re on a tight budget or just looking for a little something extra to share with your Valentine, there’s no need to resign yourself to cliche candy + flowers. We’ve put together a list of our fav gifts under $40 that are the perfect way to say “I love you” to your partner in adventure.

McCrae’s Caramels


Okay, so we had to throw a little candy in, but when you try these you’ll see why. A more grown-up take on Valentine’s candy, these handcrafted caramels come in sophisticated (and delicious) flavors like Rosemary Truffle Sea Salt, Single Malt Scotch, and Black Lava Sea Salt.

Nature Cast Metalworks Earrings


These made in the USA jewelry picks feature nature-inspired styles and make a perfect gift for the gal who loves the great outdoors.

Dona Bella Shreds Scarves 


These funky and stylish scarves are a fashion accessory that you can feel good about; they’re handmade in the US out of upcycled textile remnants to fight off waste. We love that they come in a variety of unique pattern + color combos to match anyone’s taste. Colors range from classic basics to bright and wild patterns.

Leatherman Squirt PS4 Multitool


This everyday multitool features the all the tools that you’d expect from a larger multitool in a compact pocket sized silhouette- at a fraction of the price.

Goal Zero Flip 20 Recharger


Whether you’re on the trail or the town, this compact recharger has all the juice you need to keep you going. It can easily recharge a dead smartphone twice off of a single charge, making it a great gift for the adventurer who loves to travel.
