With searches for ‘Valentine’s Day’ skyrocketing by 305% in just one week on Asda.com*, shoppers are well and truly gearing up for the big day. 

Whether it’s for that special someone, ‘Galentine's’ celebrations or for a bit of self-love, customers can choose from a selection of love-themed goodies priced at £5 and under - including delicious bottles of bubbly, heart-shaped sweet treats and a beautiful selection of vibrant flowers.

 Stats from 2023 reveal that low-cost indulgences such as cards, chocolates and flowers were the most sought-after gifts*. This year, there’s insight to show that there will be an even bigger increase in popularity of inexpensive gifts - such as flowers (31%), chocolate (31%) and other small presents (30%)*. Trends show that customers prefer smaller but more thoughtful gifts, with a little luxury indulgence (bite-sized chocolate coin, anyone?). 

 With Asda’s range of offers and products available this Valentine’s Day - it doesn't have to cost a lot to show some love. 

 Something sweet!

 Nothing says ‘I love you’ like the gift of chocolate, which Asda customers can pick up from as little as £1. Shoppers can choose from the Lots of Love Chocolate Coins (£1), sweet, milk chocolate treats shaped in a love heart and the Chocolate Love Heart Lollipops (£1), dark, milk and white heart shaped stick lollies decorated with red-lustred honeycomb sprinkles - perfect for popping in a card. 

Customers can also indulge in Valentine’s Day Lovely Mini Cupcakes (15 pack, £6 + £1 in Asda Cash Pot), fluffy sweet chocolate sponges with chocolate, strawberry and vanilla flavour frosting. Or Billie the Love Bug Cupcakes (£1.50), two chocolate sponge cakes filled with a raspberry jam sauce and topped with chocolate flavour frosting - great additions to grazing spreads to be enjoyed with friends or for a shared dessert.

For the perfect ‘v day’ breakfast in bed, customers can treat their loved one to the limited-edition Love Heart Crumpets (£1.25) which can be toasted as desired and paired perfectly with Raspberry Jam (£1.15) for the full aesthetic – small touches but made with love!

For branded favourites, shoppers can pick up the (pretty in) pink box of Lindt Raspberry Lindor Chocolates (on offer for £4.25) or treat someone to the classic Terry's Chocolate Orange Truffles - now available for just £3.

For those wanting to pop the big question on the big day, shoppers can pick up The Sweetest Ring for £1.50 in Asda stores - a giant jelly sweet in the shape of a diamond ring - sure to win anyone over should they be asked the question!
