Cheap Valentines Day Gift Ideas For New Couples

You've just begun dating and haven't yet said the I Love You's, let alone made it official. While looking for gifts you decide to give up since everywhere seems to be for people who are super serious about each other, or all the Hallmark cards are way too sappy.

Well... Here are some creative ideas (no, not your typical stuffed bear and roses) for Valentine's day which won't send your new sweety the wrong messege. The to picking the appropriate gift is figuring out what your new interest feels about V-day and not going overboard with what you buy and how much you spend.
Another good idea would be hinting at spending the day together.

1. Bake your Valentine some brownies (you can buy a mix if you don't know how to bake) or cupcakes with Red and white icing. Add a cute card and you're set. A nice candle lit dinner at home with wine is lovely too.

2. A necklace or other item of jewelry/accesory is something any girl will gladly receive.
3. Buy a picture frame and decorate it with hearts or other valentines day related things you find at a crafts store. Put your favorite/first picture in it and voila.

4. Woo your date.
If you live by the beach/near the park, plan a picnic or even movie night and surprise your date. It's relatively cheap and the look on their face will be pretty priceless. Who doesn't like being made to feel special right? Bring flowers even if you're a girl doing the planning for your guy.

5. Their favorite perfumes and colognes are always easy gift ideas to give someone. Just have someone at the perfume counter help you choose a new fragrance.

6. Want to deliver something to your guy but don't want it to be a bouquet of flowers (which his work buddies may not let him live down?). Buy a stuffed animal and other goodies, have your local gift shop put it all in a huge in a ballon or stuffed toys and chocolates Shop onlineicon and have it delivered.

7. Surprise him with a night of seduction with some sexy lingerie and wine + chocolate covered strawberries. Get super low prices on lingerie.

8. Pretty sure poster by Nick Schmitz ($33):
This Valentine's day themed poster has a twisted typography that declares, “I’m Pretty Sure I Like You a Lot,” so you can declare your true feelings without making it seem like you're coming on too strong. The ‘Pretty Sure’ hand-pulled screenprint poster is by Nick Schmitz; each of the 50 limited-edition pieces is signed and numbered by the artist.

9. Romantically Hip Lights:
ALT Lucialternative has lined an ultra modern black lamp/lantern with a hot pink interior, made visible through witty and romantic cut-outs along its base. In keeping with their Italian heritage, the designers have infused this piece with romance. The text on the light reads: “And with this light you can do nothing else but kiss me.  10. If your wife/girlfriend loves beauty and make-up or even fashion, she'll be more then happy to to receive some nice make-up brushes to add to her collection. Check out top sellers at Sigma make-up, where you can get high quality brushes for less.

11. Hand cut 'I love you more than.." card ($11.50):
These adorable cut paper cards from Etsy seller Storeyshop are perfect for telling your significant other that you love them in comparative terms (more than your PS3? What about cake?). You get to choose a personalized noun to create a card that’s even more special.
I'm thinking "I love you more than shoes". Since you're a new couple, keep it short and simple. Maybe tell them how much fun they are/how happy you are to get to spend V-day with them.

Doesn't this remind you of the "Fruit of the month" episode on Raymond? (Btw, I actually also stumbled across their website ha).

13. Proximity based geek lovin' Tees ($12-25):
Light up your love this Valentines. If you are separated by a few feet, 2 1/2 hearts will light up. But when you get within hugging distance, the pixelated hearts on the 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt will power up to a full charge. Check out the link for more info about this innovative gift idea.

 14. Strip Chocolate board game:
Whether you love kissing your partner or just taste of the chocolate, you'll win either way. Draw a Strip card and remove a piece of clothing. Draw a Chocolate card and paint a design on your partner. Comes with chocolate body frosting, dice, paintbrushes.

What are your Valentine's day plans and what are you getting your Valentine?
