Valentine’s Day is considered by many to be the most romantic day of the year. However, there are others who consider it to be a stressful day of trying to live up to romanticized expectations. Then there are those who consider the day to be a completely made-up holiday and don’t see the point in it at all.

No matter how you look at it, many partners find themselves wondering what to do about Valentine’s Day when it rolls around. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of helpful apps and websites available on Google Play or the App Store. It’s our way of delivering more to help you simplify gift giving, date planning, and in some cases, possibly save Valentine’s Day.
You truly can’t go wrong with flowers on Valentine’s Day. 1800FLOWERS has been in the floral industry for more than 40 years, evolving with technology from an order-by-phone service to a full-service website that even has an app available.
Plus, you’ll find gifts that go beyond the botanical variety when you visit their site or use their app. 1800flowers.com hosts products from sister brands such as Cheryl’s® Cookies and The Popcorn Factory® and links to partner brands like Shari’s Berries® and Simply Chocolate®.
OpenTable is an app that helps you find nearby restaurants and allows you to book reservations, so you’ll have a table when you get there. This time-saving service is handy because you don’t have to waste precious moments with your loved one, searching for restaurant options or trying to reserve seating from each establishment’s individual website. It also sends you reminders about your reservation time, to help you avoid ruining your date by missing your seating time.
Sugarwish takes “it’s the thought that counts” to a whole other level. This unique gift-giving website allows your recipient to decide on the gourmet gift they’d like best from you. The giver selects and pays for the type (candy, popcorn, cookies, snacks, coffee and tea, or even dog treats) and size of treat box they’d like to send. Then the receiver is sent notification of your “Sugarwish” for them via a custom-created eCard. After the recipient selects their specific preference, it will be delivered to them.
Make an ordinary activity or place more romantic by downloading iHeartRadio to your mobile device. Set the mood by streaming your favorite radio station or your partner’s favorite musical genre anytime, anywhere. The app even includes special Valentine’s Day stations.
Create a quiet date night at home, cozied up on the couch with your significant other, streaming a romantic movie. Catch a flick and all the feels with classics like “50 First Dates,” “The Notebook,” and “Valentine’s Day,” or Netflix original movies like “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” and “Always Be My Maybe.”

The fact that you almost believed this notion is likely a sure sign you may need this list even more than you know.
