Whether you like it or not, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. The holiday of love promises fancy dinners, red roses, chocolates and the infamously chalky conversation hearts that, frankly, don’t belong anywhere near a candy dish. 

But if your partner or date is *not* a bore and appreciates sentiments that boast a bit more creativity, my super single self is here to help you pick perfectly inexpensive alternatives to all of those predictable Valentine’s Day gifts you’re thinking of. 

These 14 Amazon products under $14 make ideal gifts for those whose one true love is food (which is probably all of us, TBH). They’re also great to buy for yourself if 2022 is the year of practicing self-love and not requiring the affirmation of a partner to define your self-worth. (Go you!)

Now go tell Cupid to trip on his bow and arrow because you’ve got things covered with the list below.
