LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Still racking your brain for a Valentine’s gift idea that won’t break the bank? Then you’ll love these budget-friendly ideas for the object of your affection.

The new beauty store inside Fred Segal in Santa Monica is offering something unusual they call the “Test Tube Experience.” For just $30, shoppers can fill a tube with one full-size beauty product, plus five deluxe samples – a gift that could be worth up to $200.

The products are all high-end name brands. Gift givers can also just buy the tube and let the recipient go fill it up later with her choice of products.

If your Valentine loves taking “selfies,” consider the $25 “Hisy-Pix” remote device. A Beverly Hills-based company designed it to let the user take selfies from 30 feet away, using the Bluetooth capability to take a picture with a coin-shaped trigger.

For a gift that keeps on giving, there’s the Kind Notes keepsake jar, which comes with 31 envelopes, each with a different message of love.

Kind Notes offers 25 types of jars ranging between $15 and $30, and it can be purchased with the messages already inside, choose the messages from a library of possibilities or write customized messages yourself.
