Picking the perfect Valentine's Day gift can be a big pain – on your state of mind as well as your wallet.
These three presents are sure to please the pickiest of sweethearts.
Probably the cheapest present on you can come up with this year is a love letter. I don't mean scratching out a few "I love yous" on a Post-it note, either.
Although it seems like an antiquated idea in our electronic age, taking time to think out and hand-write a real honest-to-goodness love letter can really be something your special someone can treasure forever.
Another old-school gift idea, pair of silver ID bracelets is perfect for those Valentine's Days with a new love, and can bring a spark of rejuvenation to a longtime relationship.
It oozes sentiment as well as playfulness, and with the option to engrave whatever you want, it can be a fun idea. Pet names or memorable dates – like when you first met – are good ways to make this gift extra-special.
A surprise trip to an actual record store can be the perfect side trip on your Valentine's night out. Give your true love a gift certificate and let them pick out something they love, or pick out music together.
Flip through records and CDs or skip the trip and opt instead for a gift card to download their favorite MP3s from the Internet.
If you are really adventurous, spend an afternoon making your very own mixtape for them, and place your gift inside.
