Laser engraved iPad or iPod

Apple is offering free laser engravings for Valentine' Day gifts, allowing you to choose a short message that can be found on the back of the device.

You can engrave a romantic message onto the back of an iPad, iPad mini, iPod touch, iPod nano, and, for a less permanent addition to the device, onto Apple's iPad Smart Cases.

You can also get any of your orders gift wrapped, which includes a personal message of your choice. To take advantage of this option, simply tick 'this is a gift' during check out.

To get your order delivered by Valentine's Day, you'll need to order by Monday 11 February.

iTunes Gift Card

You can also get Valentine's Day-themed iTunes vouchers from Apple's iTunes Store. These virtual gift cards can be set up to be sent to your Valentine on 14 February, so he or she can redeem it that same day and use it to purchase songs, apps, TV programmes, films and more. You can also include a message up to 200 characters long to accompany the voucher.

Among the songs available to download on iTunes is a selection of 75 love songs, all of which have been reduced to 59p in the lead up to Valentine's Day. These tracks include songs from Bruno Mars, Michael Jackson, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Ed Sheeran, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart and more. And if you fancy buying them all at once, Apple has provided a one click 'Buy All Songs' button that'll set you back £44.25.

There are also plenty of romantic movies available to download or rent from iTunes, including the appropriately named 'Valentine's Day' romcom, The Proposal, Life As We Know It, Love Actually, P.S I Love you and Grease.

Accessories

GelaSkins offers a range of protective skins to protect the front and back of your iPhone or iPad. Among the artwork available are some Valentine's Day themed designs as shown below.

If you'd prefer to add a more personal touch, MediaDevil offers a personalised Grafikcase. You can submit any image you like. It could be photograph that brings back great memories, for example. The Ultra-Slim Glossy personalised Grafikcase for iPhone 5 is available for £19.97.

Slop Stopper is offering a limited edition Valentine's Day version of its grippy iPhone 5 skin for $19.99 (£12.50).
