"A new relationship sort of means that everything feels special," Abby Larson, founder and editor of StyleMePretty.com, told ABCNews.com. "And the 'experience' of being together is often far more meaningful than a tangible gift."
For a splurge, Larson suggested hiring a personal chef to come over and cook a romantic dinner. But if you're on a budget, she said an indoor picnic with comfy pillows, delicious fruit and wine will have the same effect.
Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, New York Times best-selling authors of "The Nanny Diaries," suggested a bottle of local small-batch whiskey or bourbon for a man and fabulous flowers for a woman.
"Get creative," they said. "It doesn't have to be roses. What are the colors in her apartment? Show you're paying attention. But definitely not tulips. Nothing is less sexy than tulips."
