Impressing your Valentine doesn't have to involve dropping loads of cash, however. These Valentine's Day gifts for women under $50 prove many little luxuries are available for less than the cost of a dinner date. Romance doesn't have to burn your bank account.

Traditional gifts like flowers and chocolates, as well as some more unique choices that you wouldn't expect this holiday — like funny art prints and dramatic lipsticks — are all offered here in this list of Valentine's Day gifts under $50. Whether you're shopping for your significant other, your Galentine, or any other special woman in your life, these presents will simply make your recipient happy. From silly to sentimental, they cover all the bases. Hey, some people like practical gifts, and that's cool, too.

Even if you spring for a $50 dinner to go along with this gift, you're still coming in at less than the average spent. Hey, what's more romantic than fiscal responsibility? Basically nothing.
