You don't have to empty your wallet to make this Valentine's Day a memorable one.

Valentine's Day is Monday. And this year, you can impress your love, not only with a great gift, but also with your money-saving savvy, by taking advantage of some holiday deals.

It just wouldn't be Valentine's Day without flowers, but you don't have to spend a fortune on them.

Produce Junction usually has the best prices on roses. Right now, they're just $8.00 a dozen. That price will go up as we get closer to the big day, but it will likely remain under $15.

And don't overlook supermarkets for flower deals. At both Pathmark and Super Fresh, you can buy a dozen-rose bouquet for $30. Wegman's has a dozen roses for $35.

And if you want to buy a gift card along with the flowers, you can also save with special holiday deals.

At Genuardi's, if you spend $50 on gift cards, say to a restaurant, and you buy a bouquet, you'll get $10 back on a future shopping trip.

Giant has a similar deal; buy a $25 gift card and a bouquet and you'll get $5 off your next shopping order.
