Thrifted Gift Ideas: Valentine’s Day

Don’t know what to get your other half or favorite gal pal for Valentine’s Day? Look no further than Goodwill! With affordable prices on gently used items, some new with tags, Goodwill offers a great option for those purchasing items for themselves or to gift to others. Plus, when you give a gift from Goodwill, you’re also giving back to those in your community with barriers to employment who receive support from our job training programs.

Check out our gift ideas below and share what you purchase with us by tagging @dmgoodwill on Facebook and Instagram!

Gifts for Him

If the man in your life is into sports, consider new athletic clothes, golf clubs, or even score sports memorabilia on ShopGoodwill.com/DesMoines! If your guy opts for comics and books, check out the endless book section at our stores or explore ShopGoodwill.com for vintage comics and games. If your partner loves tech, explore our online options for video games, smart electronics, and more!

If so, check out ShopGoodwill.com/DesMoines for a variety of designer handbags, shoes, and NWT clothing!

DIY Idea: Create a heartfelt arrangement for your sweetie using a thrifted vase, local flowers, and stickers or a stencil to get your special message across.
