Trae Bodge, senior editor for RetailMeNot.com, says, "We conducted a study last year and we found out that's it's actually ok for people to use coupons for a gift. It makes the recipient happy."
She adds that retailers know that Valentine's Day is a big shopping holiday and they're competing for your business. So, there's really no reason to pay full price.
Her advice "Look around for the retailers that might have the lowest prices on the items that you're looking for. Then, your second step would be go to a coupon site like Retailmenot and look for a coupon. "
