Valentine’s Day is coming up fast, and while retail experts believe people will be spending more money for the love holiday this year than they did in 2012, all of us are still feeling the economic pinch. That’s why a place like Costco is an undercover bargain hunter’s dream come true.
I’ve written before about Costco and products you can buy here for weddings. But, as I’m sure you know from Christmas shopping, Costco is a spectacularly awesome place to buy gifts. (And, not to worry, Costco is not paying a dime for me to write this. I’m just a fan. You know how Target has fans? I am a Costco fan.)
I get Costco’s sale emails, and they’re pretty gosh darn tempting. Say you don’t want to spend more than $30 on a Valentine’s Day gift. I think that’s fair — it’s kind of a Hallmark holiday, and you’d rather spend the big bucks on a big deal date like an actual anniversary or his/her birthday? I think Costco’s gift baskets are a gift anyone can get behind.
I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t love to get something like this. Out of all the Valentine’s Day-themed gift baskets on Costco.com, this is the one I’d be all about — hint, hint, Mr. Powells. It wouldn’t be great for my waist, but one of these were delivered to my work, I probably wouldn’t care at that point. These are just $24.99, and that spectacular price only lasts until Feb. 17, but supplies are limited.
