7 On Your Side's Michael Finney says you don't have to spend a lot and shares some great tips on what to get your sweetheart for Valentine's Day.

If you plan to send flowers to your sweetheart for Valentine's Day you have more choices than ever before.

Valentine's Day does not have to be expensive and it doesn't have to take a lot of pre-planning. This is not your father's Valetnine's Day.

The most obvious way to get your flowers to your sweetheart is to go through a respected local florist like Jane's Roses in San Francisco.

Another popular way is to send by way of Internet and package delivery. FTD.com and 1800Flowers.com and ProFlowers.com all passed the 7 On Your Side quality test a couple years back with flying colors.

But now you have new choices, such as Instacart. The delivery service is partnering with Whole Foods.

"We are offering three bouquets. They start at $25.99," Instacart spokesperson Michelle Suwannukel said. "If you just want to send a bouquet, that's $25.99. If you wanted it delivered in one hour that would be $5.99 and you would have your delivery to your sweetheart," she added.

And you don't have to stop there. "You can add any assortment of chocolates. We have a great selection of local San Francisco made stuff, a handful of boutique items. So really great things you can just simply add on to your Instacart order and then have them delivered to your significant other or loved one," Whole Foods spokesperson Cayce Terrill Wilson said.

Another option is TaskRabbit.com. Johnathan Lal picked up flowers and a card and went to Ross to buy a discounted vase. He said the card cost $7.99. "Everything here the flowers, the vase, the card was under $40 and including the delivery it will be $60 total," Lal said.

He writes the message asked for by the client, then heads to the drop off location.

Lal is feeling good about a job well done and how he did it.

Lal said that if the client asked to get it cheaper, he would have gotten all the stuff for a cheaper price. "I do whatever he wants me to do for him. So I'll do it like I'm him," he said.

Safeway has a lot of flowers and gifts and the store really gets it together for Valentine's Day. "That's one of the things we pride ourselves on is making sure we're sort of like a flower shop with in a grocery store," Crystal Hedgpeth said.

Many of the Bay Area Safeway stores actually have local floral delivery service and all of us have access to Safeway.com, which is offering a special deal for Valentine's Day.

"It will be a dozen, a dozen long stem roses and this is going to be under $20. $19.99 price point for a dozen long stem roses and that is on the safeway.com website," Hedgpeth said.

Delivery is free the first time when you purchase items that add up to $35 on Safeway.com.
