RedEnvelope.com is one of my favorite gift sites and they're having a "Red Hot" Valentine's Day SALE for 2 days, and if you order now, you won't have to pay for rush shipping. If you get a gift from Red Envelope for your sweetie, make sure you splurge and get the big red box - it's much more impressive than opening a brown cardboard box. If your sweetie likes things that are different and creative, visit Etsy.com and find a unique handmade gift that would be perfect for your one-of-a-kind sweetie.

I think the key to a good Valentine's Day gift is that it's thoughtful and well planned. It doesn't have to cost anything, but if it's something that requires advance thought and/or planning, it shows you really care and that you think about your sweetie more than just on a day like Valentine's Day.
