CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwire - January 26, 2010) - While love knows no season, now is the time of year to express love for sweethearts, friends and family.

With CouponShack.com's tips, you don't have to worry that Valentine's Day will put you in the red.

"Even with a tight budget, there are still plenty of ideas that can make Valentine's Day special this year. A personalized touch often trumps the price of anything else," said CouponShack.com CEO Sok Verdery. "This year, more than any other year, will be the year of personalized gifts.

A Dozen Ways to Say 'I Love You' to Your Valentine and Your Wallet:

1. Personalized Photo Book: Go through all those photos you have on your computer or on Facebook and create a photo book to share with your loved one. Try using PhotoWorks or Snapfish. Both almost always offer coupons like the 20% discount being offered right now.

2. Personalized Candies: Give your Valentine candy with his or her name on it or include a personalized message. With My M&M's you can write that personalized message (2 lines, up to 8 characters per line) on each M&M. Right now you can get 15% off.

3. Send Flowers: Check out sites like 1-800-Flowers where you can find great discounts on Valentine's flowers and gifts. Combine these with our coupon for a double discount.

4. Perfume & Cologne: A Valentine's staple, perfume and cologne always make a nice gift. Prices are not only lower online, but there are also more coupons available. Check out Perfumania as an example.

5. Skincare Products: This is probably equally as popular as fragrances. Try going with a gift set. It looks nicer, plus you'll more than likely meet the minimum coupon requirement. SkinStore has some great gift sets.

6. Personalized Gifts: Check out PersonalizationMall for some very unique gifts like teddy bears, frames and even a message in bottle that you can personalize. They have an entire section devoted to Valentine's gifts.

7. Make a Favorite Meal: Check out the Food Network for some great Valentine's Day recipes. Don't forget to print grocery coupons to take with you to the grocery store!

8. Go Out for Dinner: Don't be afraid to use a discount for your meal. Purchase a gift certificate from Restaurant.com and you'll save over 50% on your meal. (You're not being cheap. You're being smart with your money.)

9. Valentine's Cards: The Greeting Card Association has estimated that 190 million Valentine's Day cards will be sent this holiday. If you have a bunch of people to send Valentine's cards to, purchase them in bulk. You can get them as low as 50 cents each at PersonalizationMall.

10. Book a Trip: A great place for a getaway on a budget is Las Vegas. Rates are as low as $27 a night over Valentine's weekend. If you'll check out Expedia, you'll see that they have an entire section devoted to Valentine's travel.

11. Go on a Cruise: Get a romantic Bahamas cruise package from $239 per person over Valentine's weekend. Just check out CruiseDirect for some incredible deals on cruise packages.
