Are you looking to do something romantic (but not expensive) for your boyfriend or husband? Check out these romantic, affordable Valentine's Day gift ideas.

Love letters

Create a scrapbook

Even if your boyfriend isn't the sappy type, he'll really love if you put together a scrapbook for him about your relationship. You can create scrapbooks and albums offline, or check out the available digital versions. Many online scrapbooking sites are free or very low cost.

Write a love letter

In this computer age, we don't put the pen to paper often enough. This Valentine's Day, write a love letter to your sweetie. Buy some fancy paper and write from your heart. Audio love letters are another fun idea. You can write a letter and then make an audio recording of you reading the letter to him.

Buy a love book

MyLoveBook.com is a fabulous website where you can create a personalized book for your spouse or partner. Basically how it works is you answer between 18-36 questions about your relationship, then an editor creates a book from your answers. The price of each leatherette covered book is $49.95 -- not bad for such a unique and romantic gift.
