Valentine’s Day is less than two weeks away; what are you going to get for the person who is hard to shop for? Lifestyle expert Suzie Chase Brown has some suggestions for the best gifts for every budget (and every Valentine!).

Want to ‘go big’ this Valentine’s Day? Vintage Marquee Lights can send illuminated initials and hearts... you can say "I love you" in lights! Treat your sweetheart like a celeb with great symbols thanks to these electric pieces of wall art.

Forget about expensive dinners out on Valentine's Day. Stay in with a mouth-watering, delicious authentic Maine lobster dinner. Cousins Maine Lobster ships their sustainably-harvested, superior lobster entrees shore-to-door direct from Maine's cold ocean anywhere in the U.S. So plan a romantic night in on February 14 and save time slaving over a hot stove with simple-to-serve and absolutely scrumptious Lobster Tails, Lobster Mac & Cheese, Lobster Pot Pie and Lobster Bisque from Cousins Maine Lobster.

What gal doesn’t love jewelry as a Valentine’s Day gift? I love these necklaces from Melis Rocks Accessories. Born and raised in Dallas, Melis makes great heart-shaped necklaces that are perfect for dressing up or down. I’m crazy about Melis’ lock necklace with Swarovski crystals, perfect to give to someone who has the key to your heart! Under $60, it’s an affordable statement piece she’ll wear again and again!

Imagine getting a potted bean plant with a magical "I Love You" message that appears right on the actual bean when it sprouts and on its first set of leaves! DuneCraft Message Bean plants can also say things like, “Be Mine” or “Forever Yours” or there’s even a “Kissing Bean” plant that sprouts the words "Kiss Me”! Here you will also find luscious lips engraved on the beans and first set of leaves, too. What could be more special or unique than magical plants that grow messages on them? These plants are sure to be items your loved ones won’t soon forget. You can find them at CVS for $4.99.

Skip the cliché chocolates and instead give the gift that keeps on giving: Spicy Subscriptions! Each month, a new box of romantic surprises is discreetly delivered to your door. Candles, linen spray, adult-themed gifts and more are found in each box. More than 80 percent of the company's customers say they noticed a dramatic improvement to their relationship after subscribing.
