Ah, Valentine’s Day. Love it or hate it, the aisles are chock-full of heart-patterned goods, and pink and red have smothered all other colors. You might find yourself reaching for that tenth piece of chocolate. (Okay, I’m calling myself out on that one.) Whether you have a Valentine, are gathering the girls for a feel-good night, or have a kiddo who just gave you 48 hours notice that they need a hundred Valentines to pass out in class, you might be in need of a gift or two—for them or yourself. Enter Target, our go-to for adorable and budget-friendly gifting. The retailer makes getting festive easier than ever.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever accidentally filled a cart just in the store’s dollar section? Target has a knack for cute, actually functional basket stuffers—low-cost gifts you’d love to receive separately, but that you can also stock up on. While Christmas technically has ownership over the “stocking,” building a Valentine’s Day gift basket is an easy and sweet way to show affection. Here are 10 picks to get you started.

Start Valentine’s Day off strong with this adorable heart-shaped waffle maker. It will cook your waffle in under three minutes, and it’s even nonstick.

A lip mask always comes in handy, especially in winter when our skin is significantly drier. Whether you're actively smooching or just savoring the pink-and-red fluff of the holiday, treat your lips with a hydrating mask using collagen and hyaluronic acid. Any friend would appreciate this quick basket pick, and it’s even infused with mulberries and wild cherry extract.
