Chances are you’re going to need to pop into Target for something. Why not pick up something for the person you heart most there too?
The store, whose signature red is the color of love, has made it easy for Valentine’s Day shoppers: either hitting them when they first come through the automatic doors with a display of suggested gifts or putting more ideas on end caps below pink signs, aptly displaying the word “Valentine’s”
We took a spin through Target recently, and while we might have exited having spent more than we budgeted (as usual), we found that you don’t have to spend a fortune on Valentine’s Day gifts for men or women. Here are my favorite 10 Valentine’s Day finds that won’t financially crush you while you’re still paying off those credit cards from Christmas.
