Sometimes it’s easy to get lost in the search for the perfect gift to tell her or him “I love you,” but don’t stray from the purpose. Here are some inexpensive date and gift ideas:

Buy him or her an inexpensive journal and write a love letter.Whenever you feel the need to write to him/her, go for it, and it can be his or her eternal keepsake.

Go to Target and buy the Rival Stainless Steel Fondue Maker for $30 and then make your way to Kroger and buy some chocolate and strawberries – enjoy a succulent, sexy dessert together.

Go pick up a pre-prepared dinner for two at Central Market and take him or her on a picnic on White Rock Lake.

Take him or her out for dinner at Dave and Buster’s and see who’s better at Skee Ball.

Frame your favorite picture of the two of you, and on the back tell your significant other why you love them so much.

Don’t forget the easiest one of them all – flowers. Opt for something other than traditional roses, like daisies or lilies.
