Avoid The Last Minute Valentines Disaster With Care Online

12 February 2013

A hasty solution to last minute Valentine's Day panic can lead to heartache, if shoppers don't take care when grabbing a quick present online, warn directors of www.shopsafe.co.uk.

While many romantics find the 14th of February fast approaching without having purchased a gift, many will turn to the internet for a solution. However, while many websites guarantee next day delivery, shoppers should be cautious withtight deadlines.

Simon Crisp, director of www.shopsafe.co.uk said: "Whenever there is a deadline to be met, consumers should take those extra few seconds to check the details of delivery times. Such things as the time of day when the order is placed and the choice of delivery type are hugely important, as are the normal online safety checks everyone should make when buying online.

"Nobody wants to be explaining to their loved one why a gift hasn't arrived on time, especially when the truth is that it was left too late. It's likely that the safest bet is to order flowers and there are countless florists online, making it so much easier."

www.shopsafe.co.uk is one of the UK's longest established and largest online shopping directories, with more than 4,000 Shopsafe checked retailers listed, including florists such as Interflora, Bunches and Arena Flowers.
