Valentine's Day Cards

LoveRadar says: Clearly a Valentine's Day card is the bare minimum for anyone in a relationship who still wants to be in it on the 15th February. And it's even more fun to send a card to someone you're not in a relationship with - you know, that person you've fancied for ages. And while you could look to the highstreet to supply your card, there are actually some pretty great online options too. Online you get more selection and total control over appearance, images and words.

Moonpig: Buy cards, flowers and gifts (opens in new tab)

Not On The Highstreet: Buy your cards and a whole range of gifts (opens in new tab)

Scribbler: Specialises in online card creation and delivery (opens in new tab)

Flowers for Valentine's Day

LoveRadar says: Probably one for guys to buy rather than the ladies, this one. And you might think it's cheesy as all hell to send flowers on Valentine's Day, but the ladies love a beautiful bouquet and for good reason - it really shows how special you think she is to buy her flowers. But don't be lazy and pick some up from the petrol station on the way home! Plan ahead, order online and get them delivered to her as a special surprise!

Flying Flowers: Flowers for all occasions with plenty of delivery options (opens in new tab)

Amazon: Yep, you can even buy flowers on Amazon and there's some great deals too (opens in new tab)

Interflora: Possibly the best known flower brand, get any flower any time! (opens in new tab)

Serenata Flowers: All sorts of flowers and bouquets (opens in new tab)


Holidays for Valentine's Day

LoveRadar says: OK, so not all of us can afford to buy a holiday for Valentine's Day. But if you CAN afford it, there is surely no better gift. And the great thing is that the internet makes finding the right choice - whether it's a quick city break or a trip to a tropical paradise - extremely easy. And there are always some interesting last minute deals to be had.

Thomas Cook: Find a cheap holiday for you and your loved one (opens in new tab) Great for finding a last minute surprise weekend away (opens in new tab)


Chocolates for Valentine's Day

LoveRadar says: Everyone loves chocolates. Whoever you're buying for this year, you could do a lot worse than a really nice box of chocolates. And we don't mean a tin of Quality Street - proper, quality, delicious, amazing chocolates. There are plenty of brands that you can buy from online as well - here are the four key chocolate shops to order from:

Amazon: Not the most obvious chocolate retailer, but there are some brilliant deals on all sorts of top brands (opens in new tab)

Thorntons: The highstreet chocolate chain has a lot of options for online chocolate purchasing (opens in new tab)

Jewellery for Valentine's Day

LoveRadar says: Jewellery is super hard to buy for someone else, or it is for some people anyway. Others find it very easy, and to make things even easier - you can buy online! Amazon actually has a great jewellery section on its website, and there are plenty of other buying options as well. So whether you're looking for earrings, necklaces, bracelets, bangles, rings or whatever - consider the internet your buying companion:

Restaurants for Valentine's Day

LoveRadar says: If you work long hours and don't get out much, it can be hard to work out where to take your loved one for that special Valentine's Meal you promised you'd book. Luckily there are some online services that make such things very easy indeed, and you don't have to be living in a big city to do it, either...

Amazon: Use Amazon Local to find a great deal on a meal for you and your special one (opens in new tab) Lots of good deals at lots of great UK restaurants Yep, this site even does table bookings (opens in new tab)
