For anyone who lives in an urban city, gifting an Uber gift card is almost like gifting time and convenience.

It will be a lifesaver on those rainy and cold days when waiting on a train platform seems hellish. If you’re looking to make a bigger gesture, suggest that your Valentine use their uber gift gift to splurge on an uber black car on their next night out. They can spend a night riding in style on you (and maybe they’ll even take you along for the ride). This gift card is available in any denomination for immediate e-mail delivery.

9. 1-800 Flowers.com Gift Card>
Raise your hand if you’re a guy who can never remember exactly what kind of flowers your wife or girlfriend likes. You are not alone.

A gift card is a great way to ensure that she gets the flowers she actually wants this Valentine’s Day. She can pick out the bouquet she loves and have it delivered whenever she’s needing a pick me up. Another thing to keep in mind is the huge Valentine’s Day markup on flowers. Have her wait a week or two to use her gift card and she’ll definitely get more bang for her buck.
