Valentine's gift under $100 | The Alma Chronicle

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, finding the perfect gift can be a real hassle especially as your bank balance is still recovering from the Christmas jubilation and thoughtful gifts to family members and loved ones.

As much as the traditional flowers and chocolate are the way to go when trying to fit in a last minute gesture, I’ll always suggest surprising someone with a gift that won’t deteriorate and be forgotten after a few hours.

From lasting skin care to jewellery for her and grooming kits for him, here are some last minute gift ideas under $100 USD that’ll make it seem like you put in more effort than you did.

P.S I forgot to add personalized gifts to this list, but they are by far the most precious and heart warming. Pick up a bracelet for her with her birthstone, Alex and Ani has an amazing selection or an engraved wristwatch for him.Valentine Gifts under $100 | The Alma Chronicle

  • “I often make the mistake of thinking that something that is obvious to me is just as obvious to everyone else” - This is exactly how I feel when I hear some women say things like “I’m not a feminist because I don’t hate men”. I’ll be the first to admit that I have previously dismissed or cancelled such women as I don’t see or understand how one will ever equate the fight for equal rights in the society to love/hatred for men. It’s no longer enough or acceptable to be ignorant about societal issues. It’s time to pick up a book, have conversations & enlighten your mind. But also, I have decided that instead of dismissing such opinions, I’ll be more open to having these conversations, with women and men alike, because truthfully, of what use is it for only a select few to be fully informed in a fight? #LetsTalk // P.S To get 15% off @danielwellington site, use my code “AlmaChronic” 😊#danielwellington // 📸: @moflave
  • Can’t believe I’ve had my platform #TheAlmaChronicle for 3 years!!! It’s so exciting that what started as a need to prove to myself that I could do something without depending on someone else, has grown over the years and taught me so much about life, patience, values, etc etc. I remember staying up at night learning the basics of coding so I could tweak a theme template and publishing my first post from @folabss_ house after realising I had been duped (long story 😭). I’ve poured a lot of myself into this platform and I’m so grateful for everyone that supports it! We’re growing together 👭👫💕💕 #TheAlmaChronicle
  • Gave wristwatches a break and fuelled my addiction for bracelets, but this duo from @danielwellington is pretty 👌🏾, lightweight and stylish. Great addition to my arm candy collection // To get 15% off @danielwellington site, use my code “AlmaChronic” 😉 #danielwellington
  • Thank you guys for all the birthday wishes! Turning 25 wasn’t just a number for me, I feel as though I’m getting a fresh start at figuring life out without the pressure and all my layers of internal doubt and anxiety. I can’t wait to experience all the amazing things that come with this age! 💕💕💕
  • A birthday girl, a babe! Used to be so scared of getting older, but I think 25 looks good on me! 🥂🎂💃🏽 #CapricornSeason
