That includes dads and other relatives who you want to share a special gift with.

What do you get for the guy who has everything?

propose on valentines dayIf the man you're shopping for is the kind who goes out and buys what he wants for himself, it may leave you uninspired when it comes to picking a great gift. Getting a gift for the boy with all the newest toys takes creativity and patience.

Another classy tie or bottle of trendy aftershave just don't come close to expressing the emotions that you want to get across but what's a girl to do?

If that describes your situation, there are a few easy tips to discover the perfect gift without coming out and asking.

How can you give a great Valentine's Day gift on a budget?

Since Valentine's Day comes shortly after Christmas, you might be looking for ways to say "I care" without breaking the bank...

  • Even guys like chocolate and Dove chocolates makes saying what you mean easy by letting you personalize a message that gets printed on the foil wrappers in you gift box. They even offer extra help with some creative message ideas. M&M's can also be personalized with a special message for your sweetheart.

  • Not sure that sweets will work? An online service, Kind Notes, will put your notes in envelopes, packaged in a nice jar or box, and let your gift stretch out with a new message every day for around US$30.

  • Miniatures also make great gifts. Is he into cars? Pick up a small model of his dream car or an antique auto he would love to own. Does he love flying? What's his favorite plane? A model of a snazzy jet or a biplane he dreams of flying will win you points for paying attention to what he cares about.

    Dogs, horses, racing cars, motorcycles... there are small versions of just about anything that make great gifts without cleaning out your bank account.

Valentine's Day gifts for a bigger budget
Even if you have plenty of money to spend, it can be hard to pick something special. Here are a few suggestions to spark your own ideas...

  • Don't give a gift... give a once in a lifetime experience. Take a look online for "gift experiences" and you'll find sites where you can arrange for him to drive an authentic NASCAR stock car; fly a plane; go rock climbing, caving, dune buggy riding or diving with sharks; join a rodeo for a day or attend a master barbecue school. Just about any experience you can think of from the biggest adrenaline rush to a relaxing spa day... it's all planned for you and available online.

  • Travel always makes a great gift. A cruise, a wine tour with tasting included, a weekend getaway at a cozy bed and breakfast or an all-inclusive beach resort are just some great ideas for the perfect gift.
