The alarms are sounding for the arrival of Valentine’s Day as most Cairenes will have already shopped for their partner’s present. However, if you’re amongst the small percentage of people who like to wait until the last minute (or forgot) to get their gifts, there are a few apps that will help you rescue the day!


If you want to get your partner the side dishes of the main gift, AKA chocolate or flowers, you can now purchase Gourmet’s signature brownies, but in a heart shape! You can also download their app and shop away if you want to save yourself the hassle of going to the store. Their app features “Be Our Valentine”, and they even offer fresh, ready-made bouquets for delivery. They also have handcrafted boxes of chocolates as well as chocolate-covered strawberries, a highly recommended snack on Valentine’s Day.


The holy grail of grocery shopping apps, Instashop has dedicated a couple of flower shops to deliver your pick of bouquets to your loved one right at their doorstep! All you have to do is enter the address and pick your flowers, which you can customise if you want to make it more personal.


Here’s a great plan for Valentine’s Day: a weekend getaway! Elves is just the app for planning your next romantic weekend right here in Egypt. It helps you explore travel destinations and filters through where you can go depending on the season and mood! Download the app and browse for your Valentine’s getaway.


Supercook is the perfect app if you want to make your partner a warm, home-cooked meal, but you have no idea what to cook. This app makes the process 10 times easier; you log in the ingredients you have in your fridge, and lo and behold, you’ll get multiple recipes that are made from your ingredients.
