The doorbell rings and a delivery person hands you a dozen red roses -- magic! Flowers are a great way to express your love, and they don't have to bust your budget. You could pick wildflowers in season, grab flowers at a corner store for just a few dollars or spring for delivery.

But watch out around certain holidays, when demand overwhelms supply and florists look to turn a profit. "Flowers, especially around Valentine's Day and Mother's Day, are expensive," Nolan says. "When we got married it was around Mother's Day and flowers were through the roof."

Estimated cost: $35 to $90 and up, including delivery.
