I don’t know who needs to hear this, but this Valentine’s Day, don’t forget to show the most important person in your life some love. We’re talking about you. Yeah, you! No matter your holiday plans, carving out some “me time” sprinkled in with a heaping dose of self care should be a top priority.
Time is running out, though, as Valentine’s Day is just a week away. Thankfully, there’s always Amazon, which ships in a flash (2-day shipping for Prime Members, and sometimes the day of, depending on where you live.) Even better, most of them are budget-friendly and available for $30 or less, making “me time” that much more affordable and accessible. Sure, you could drop the big bucks on, say, an expensive vintage or a fancy facial at a trendy spa. Or you could save your pennies and give yourself a Valentine’s Day gift you (and your wallet) will fall head over heels for.

Wander Beauty’s award-winning eye patches are the ultimate Valentine’s Day treat. The gold foil masks are infused with hydrating hyaluronic acid, plumping peptides, and soothing aloe vera extract to help smooth, de-puff, brighten, and hydrate tired under eyes—all without slipping and sliding down your face, which we really appreciate. The elasticized middle layer keeps the masks in place, while the outermost gold foil helps retain heat and promote better absorption of the ingredients, so you get all of the benefits.

ICYMI, the Stanley tumbler is having a moment on TikTok. This one from Simple Modern is pretty much the same thing, only half the price.

Bonus points for the tapered bottom that fits in your cupholder. And more bonus points for the straw.

Instead of trying to snag a hair appointment (which is notoriously challenging around V-day), treat yourself to this Amika hair mask instead. It contains strand-smoothing amino acids, nourishing sea buckthorn, and softening flaxseed to give hair that fresh-from-the-salon shine in just 60 seconds flat (!!). What’s more, the watery formula agrees with all hair types—just apply directly onto damp hair in place of your usual conditioner, and let it do its thing for one minute before rinsing. Style or air-dry hair as you would normally, and prepare for your best hair day yet.

It might seem like just another TikTok gimmick, but an ice roller really does belong in your self-care routine. The multipurpose facial tool essentially delivers all of the benefits of icing your face—like increased circulation, instant de-puffing, reduced inflammation—without any of the mess, and it doubles as a soothing facial massage. Pop off the roller and store it in your freezer, then use whenever you need a pick-me-up—rolling in upward motions to give yourself an at-home lymphatic drainage massage and invigorate skin.

Amazon shoppers absolutely love the Hanalei Lip Treatments, and it’s easy to understand why. The ultra-rich lip balms are made with kukui nut oil—a natural source of skin-nourishing essential fatty acids and vitamins A, C, and E—which helps quench and soften dry, chapped lips and protect them from the drying effects of the cold. According to reviews, the thick formula works wonders as an overnight lip mask, and the tinted formulas in the 3-pack are the perfect no-makeup makeup option for daytime wear, offering sheer washes of red and rosy pink.

This Kitsch satin pillowcase is the perfect way to work some relaxation into your sleep routine. According to the hoards of happy shoppers, the satin pillowcases do their job even better than pricier silk pillowcases—reducing friction between your hair and skin on the pillow while you sleep to help reduce frizz and ward off the formation of fine lines and wrinkles over time. Plus, unlike traditional cotton pillowcases, the satin material doesn’t absorb all of the serums and moisturizers you put on before bed, ensuring that your products stay put and can be adequately absorbed by your skin.
