Not sure what to get your sweetie for Valentine's Day? Laura Thornquist shares some "Insider Savings" tips that include some great affordable ideas.

Okay ladies, if you are thinking about a Valentine's Day gift for the man in your life who is hard to buy for, we have a few ideas from Radio Shack that won't break the bank. My hubby is super hard to buy for, so these are some great options.

The Logitech Harmony 650 Universal Remote is only $69.99 and is perfect for your man's man cave.

Who doesn't love an Amazon Kindle? The six-inch eReader also runs on Wi-Fi and runs $79.

Turn your iPod or iPhone into a mini casino with the Jackpot Slots for iPhone/iPod touch for only $34.99.

The Velleman Flashing LED Sweetheart kit is only $7.99.

And a Universal docking station lets you listen to satellite radio through your FM radio. It runs $79.99.

Guess what, we are giving away five of Amazon Kindles to our WFAA viewers. I feel like Oprah! 
Log onto my website to enter, winners will be selected at random.

And, here are some really hot gift card deals this week. This is a great way to save on practical every day things, or even an idea for let's say a Valentine's Day basket for the family. 

Right now at OnSale, you can get a Dominos $10 gift card for only $5.99. If you order a pizza, this is a no brainer. Then you pair it with a coupon code. 

And for those who love their tunes, Best Buy is offering iTunes gift cards that are 15 percent off the regular price. The gift card is electronic, so you can give it to anyone, anywhere.
