Valentine's Day 2012 is less than 24 hours away, but many lovers and romantics are still scrambling for that last-minute gift idea.

Whether you're planning to spend $10 or $1,000 (or more), gifts related to this special day also act as a huge booster for the economy.

According to a recent survey by the National Retail Federation (NRF), Americans are expected to spend some $17.6 billion on Valentine's Day gifts this year.

That averages out to be $126.03 per person, an 8.5 percent jump from 2011 and the highest in 10 years.
