If you haven't heard of Sweetest Day — which falls on October 19 this year — let us explain. Occuring on the third Saturday of October, this day is an opportunity to show your loved ones (think: sweethearts, friends and family) how much you care, usually with a small gift or sweet gesture. The day is said to have started in Cleveland in the 1920s, and is still predominately celebrated in the Midwest and Northeast. However, we think an excuse to give (and get!) a sweet gift should be celebrated everywhere. We found 10 gifts all under $25 that make it easy to show all your loved ones just how much they mean to you.

Milk Bar, $25

Sure, these are called the B'Day truffles, but that doesn't mean the poppable mini cakes should be reserved for just one day a year. Whether Sweetest Day is a holiday you're celebrating with your best friend or significant other, it's certainly an excuse to indulge in Milk Bar's iconic treat.
