Ten on the 10th Valentine's Edition

Today I'm joining the wonderful Ten on the 10th girls
in sharing some Valentine's Day inspiration.
It's easy to give a thoughtful yet inexpensive gift on  St. Valentine's Day.
Chocolate is always a great idea, but there are so many others.
Here are some items under ten dollars suitable for friends, daughters, teachers, or anyone who deserves a little love on February 14th. 
Simply pick out some red, pink, or heart shaped pampering items to include in a small gift bag (found in sets of three at Dollar Tree). 
AND there is not a calorie to be found in any of the ones shown below!

The mask and nail polish remover pads are $3 each.  The tweezers with its own little light is $6. (Charming Charlie's)
The Kisses lip balm is under $3 (Walmart)

The wooden Love tag was under a dollar at Walmart.

This red hair brush with a comfort gel grip and ionic bristles is about $6. (Walmart)
It would be even better paired with shampoo, conditioner, or hair ties.

This wooden heart mounted on corrugated metal makes a cute gift tag.
It could be personalized with a Sharpie marker, paint, or stickers.
It was around $2 at Hobby Lobby.

The leaves on this little potted houseplant look heart shaped to me.  It is a Silver Pothos and was under $3 (Walmart).  This is an easy plant to keep alive, too.
Adding a little red tissue and ribbon make it a perfect Valentine's table decoration or gift.

This pretty box of peony note cards was $3 at Half Price Books. 
They would be perfect to give as a set or to write with uplifting Valentine's Day notes for sweet friends and family.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
