Forget about those ‘get out of jail’ petrol station flowers and the generic heart shaped card. You can make this Valentine’s Day a special one with the help of a few handy apps on your phone. Get ready for heart-eye emoji levels of affection.
Make them a personalised card with Funky Pigeon
If your other half is one of those ‘I’ll just be happy with a card’ people, why not go creative and give them a personalised one from Funky Pigeon? It’s super easy to design on your phone and will be professionally printed and sent in just a couple of days – or delivered First Class (if you’ve left it to the last minute).
So, dig out all your romantic and funny couple’s photos and make a card they’ll want to keep!
Order a bouquet for you beau
Giving your loved one a bouquet of flowers is a great way to kick off Valentine’s Day. We’re not talking about the slim pickings in your local supermarket, though. Bloom & Wild offer an amazing selection of bouquets that arrive as buds and bloom into a beautiful array of colour. There’s a great app that’s free to download, and you can choose next day delivery for free. So, even if you’re late ordering a gift, you can still save the day with a last-minute romantic surprise.
And if you’re really out to impress this year, you can even order so they’ll receive a new bouquet every month.
Create a playlist for them
Shakespeare wrote “If music be the food of love, play on”, and we wholeheartedly agree. Why not make your partner a personalised playlist with all the songs you both love? Whether you use Spotify, Apple Music or any other streaming service, curating a playlist is completely free and loads of fun. Plus it really shows that you’ve made and effort and thought of them by creating something personal. Aww, aren’t you lovely!
Book a romantic meal for two
Looking for something fancier than your local pizza place? Then consider the Open Table app ‘the one’. It’s perfect for finding and booking a great restaurant for you and your partner. You can search for tables by location, cuisine, price and even special offers. Plus, booking couldn’t be easier. So, whether they love Indian food or prefer a quaint Italian bistro, finding a table for the 14th should be a doddle.
