February has swiftly arrived, and with two major holidays taking place this month, there are some spectacular deals worth keeping on your radar. From the expected Valentine’s Day gifts to the not-so-obvious President’s Day finds, we’ve compiled a guide to help you decide what to buy this month to maximize your savings.
Due to fierce competition among jewelers leading up to Valentine’s Day, you can expect sales on all types of fine jewelry up until February 14th. So if you’re thinking of getting your special someone a gift that goes beyond chocolate and roses, this is the time to do it. You can also agree with your partner to celebrate the day of love a few days later which will allow you to take advantage of some great deals.
Valentine’s Day Gifts
In the case of more traditional Valentine’s Day gifts, the early bird does not always get the worm. If you want to get a good deal on gifts like chocolates, stuffed animals, and all things red and pink, you should wait one to two days before Valentine’s, which is often when stores will begin to sell these items at a discount. The only exception here is fresh flowers, which tend to increase in price as we get closer to the 14th.
You’ll see stores marking down hot weather accessories, especially designer sunglasses. So while you’re dreaming away of a warm holiday and sunny destination, take advantage of these off-season discounts and start building your spring and summer wardrobe with a pair of fresh shades.
Jackets, Sweaters, and Hoodies
Winter clothing sales that started in January carry over to February, making it easy to find discounts as high as 70% off jackets, sweaters, and hoodies. Now is the time to bypass higher seasonal prices and score great savings on winter essentials that you’ll surely need again next year.
Presidents Day falls on February 15th, which means you can expect hefty discounts starting on the weekend and continuing throughout the holiday. The most notable discounts are those on small appliances, where you can save on items like vacuums, blenders, coffee makers, and slow cookers. Keep an eye out for these deals to save big on some small upgrades to your home. Visit the home and garden section on Flipp to see your local savings.
