Usually it's the men in relationships who find themselves wracking their brains to come up with gift ideas for the ladies in their lives on Valentine's Day, but plenty of women are also looking for ways to express their love on this day devoted to romance.
Unfortunately, plenty of couples affected by the recession and still trying to cut costs, so if you and your man have decided not to go all out this year, here are a few Valentine's Day gift for men that are sure to impress him without breaking the bank.

The Best Inexpensive Valentine's Day Gifts for Men
If you want to get your dude in the mood, a little alcohol could help him to unwind after a tough day at the office. But rather than going straight for the hard stuff (which could put him to sleep before the romance even starts and leave him with an unfortunate hangover), put his love of hops into play by creating a custom sampler of brews. Include a couple of favorites, as well as a few new ones you think he'll enjoy. He'll likely appreciate the thought, as well as the beer.
While this gift is technically designed to be worn by you, there's no denying that buying yourself some new skivvies could definitely serve as a gift for him.
You may be the best gift he ever gets, but it couldn't hurt to put on some shiny new wrapping once in a while, and Valentine's Day offers the perfect opportunity.
Men like to be pampered just as much as the ladies, and your guy likely has plenty of aches and pains from sitting in a chair at the office all day. So get online to order some massage oil and find yourself a few tutorials on giving the perfect massage.
While you can certainly shell out the money to take him to a spa for this service, it's likely to be more intimate when it's just the two of you. And if you find some tutorials on sensual massage it could end up being a present for the both of you.
Valentine's Day is less about spending money than it is about spreading love, and you don't have to spend a lot of money to do it. Instead, let him know how much you care by inundating him with personal messages throughout the day. With a little forethought (and some help from friends and coworkers) you can pen all kinds of notes and hide them in his office, his car, his briefcase, and his gym bag to find on Valentine's Day.
But you might also take a page from the mobile generation and send him a few racy texts throughout the day to let him know what's waiting for him when he gets home.
Personalized Professional Gear.
Although this holiday is geared towards expressions of love, your man might be a more practical sort when it comes to gifts. In this case you may want to go for the personal touch by perusing personalized leather padfolios, briefcases, or iPhone covers, just for example.
These are things that he'll use every day, and each time he sees the monogram or message he'll think of you.
