It's funny how a simple thing like Valentine's Day can throw people into a frenzy of indecision. What to buy? How much to spend? What will s/he like? Is it too sappy? Is it not sappy enough? Just follow along and see if a few ideas strike your fancy. Ok there are technically more than five but I've divided them into 5 groups.

The Top 5 Best Valentine's Day Gifts for 2011

Best Tech Gifts for Valentine's Day

I know it's a bit of an unexpected gift idea but tech is in right now. Whether your special someone is has been gazing longingly at an Apple I-Pad, a Kindle, laptop, new fancy cell phone, or any other gadget you can get off easy (but expensively) with one of these gifts. Just put a big red bow on that box of wires and enjoy.

Best Romantic Gifts for Valentine's Day

You can never go wrong with a big bouquet of flowers unless of course your honey doesn't like flowers. If flowers won't work for you anything sappy and special will. The funny thing about romantic is that each person's idea of romance is different. A man might enjoy certain bedroom favors while some women just want to see someone else do the dishes.

Best Practical Gifts for Valentine's Day

Practical is normally a bad idea for this holiday, but with the economy in the tank a few adjustments can be made. If you and your partner agree buying a gift together for both of you can be the best thing going. A new television is really too expensive, but once a year if you agree you might be able to splurge. This can go for almost any item that you've been putting off because "it is just too expensive right now". The most important part of this agreement is that neither partner can sneak off and get something extra. If one person does and one doesn't hard feelings can ruin a great day.

Best Valentine's Day Gifts for Him

You know him. He's so hard to buy for. Just what do you get a man for Valentine's Day? You could get him a new wallet, a new golf club (or whatever sport he's into), tickets to a game or concert, some DVDs, or you could cook him his favorite meal. If you want to know the best Valentine's Day gift for your sweetie you gotta know him first.

Best Easy Valentine's Day Gifts for Her

If you really can't come up with something that just screams her name you can always fall back on the good old stand-bys. There is a reason why certain items are traditionally given at Valentine's Day. Flowers are beautiful if not long lasting. Candy is sweet and always welcome. Cards can be sappy or funny depending on your Valentine. Stuffed animals can give her company when you are away. Trying to figure out what girls want for Valentine's Day is as simple as figuring out your girl ... That didn't come out right.

Good luck this Valentine's Day. I hope these few simple suggestions will make this day one that is fun and not stressful. Stress is not conducive to romantic encounters.
