A dozen roses might mean romance, but the best gift is more time together—not necessarily more money, right? Here, a list of gifts under $50 that will help you have fun with your honey.
|Grow Your Own Marinara Kit ($29, Uncommon Goods)|
This nifty kit includes everything you need to grow tomatoes, basil, and oregano for a delicious pasta sauce. Plant ’em, nurture the little guys, and then reenact that scene from Lady & the Tramp.
|Table Topics ($16.99, Orange & Pear)|
Table Topics are conversation-starters that encourage a deeper level of intimacy than you get sitting on the couch, watching The Office.
|Winerd: The Wine Tasting Game ($35, Spoon Sisters)|
Compare your wine knowledge with Winerd—a game that encourages you to polish off a couple of bottles together and bandy around some oenophilia. Or just make up new varietals of kissing.
|Scene It? 80s Deluxe Edition ($21.88, Amazon)|
Relive your neon-colored glory days with this interactive TV trivia game. Test your memory on everything from Pac-Man to Pop Rocks, then drag out old photo albums and laugh at his denim jacket and popped collar.
|Custom Cards & Keepsakes by Erin Human ($7-$40, Etsy.com)|
Immortalize (or at least cute-ify) your love with one of Erin Human’s custom hand-drawn cards and keepsakes. Just email her a photo, and she’ll send you your own personal work of art.
