Online PR News – 11-February-2010 – – February 11, 2010, Los Angeles, CA - Despite being widely known as a holiday created to sell greeting cards in the downtime between New Year and Easter, on Sunday you will still be expected to demonstrate your affection with a suitably romantic gesture.

That's right, guys. Valentine's Day is just a few days away, but luckily for you, the web gurus over at ATAK Interactive have put together a list of websites that will help you express your thoughtfulness to that special someone.

If you are in a new relationship, things are especially tricky. You don't want to get too serious, but you want the relationship to last more than a week. The key here is to get something that shows you were thinking of her, but not go overboard. No matter what, don’t ignore it – even if she told you she wasn’t expecting anything, she usually is.

Flowers are the number one gift. Despite their being somewhat cliché, girls love flowers. Great for showing you care, or for keeping out of the doghouse because you forgot. Our picks are www.1800flowers.com and www.teleflora.com

Chocolates make a great compliment to a flower arrangement and a nice box will let her indulge in her sweet tooth. Try www.godiva.com for beautiful gift boxes or baked desserts made especially for the occasion. For something a little different, visit www.ediblearrangements.com for a beautiful bouquet of fruit or 2 dozen chocolate fruit roses.

If you're going out for dinner, make sure you have a reservation. www.opentable.com can help you find the perfect restaurant in your area and confirm your reservation within minutes.

Alternatively, put your cooking skills to the test and plan an evening at home. www.allrecipes.com can give you some great ideas, and also has the option to search for recipes by the ingredients you already have at home. Set your date by sending out a personal invitation to your private dinner, or make it a larger gathering for a more relaxed evening with friends, great for several couples to get together or a way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your single friends. www.evite.com can help you customize your invitation and manage RSVPs.

If you've already got a few Valentine's Days under your belt with your sweetheart, this is a great time to get her that something she’s had her eye on for a while.

Find something special for your technical minded lady at www.bestbuy.com or www.newegg.com or pick up a romantic movie or thoughtful book at www.amazon.com or www.overstock.com where you can also use their customizable search functions to find the perfect gift in your budget.

If you’re looking for something a bit more special, www.bluenile.com has a very nice collection of jewelry that will be sure to make her swoon.

Why not get yourself something while you're at it? A couple's massage session or a day together at a spa can be very romantic and offers ample time for bonding. Use www.spafinder.com to find one near you.

Finally, if you want to end your evening with a bang, surprise her with some lingerie. www.victoriassecret.com is always a good place to start.

Editors note: Before venturing into lingerie territory, make sure you know her size. If you are unsure, play it safe with a babydoll style, or get a gift certificate and ask if you can help her pick something out.
