It's almost here, the day that gift card retailers and flower sellers dream of every year, hoping that love in the air will sell enough roses to buy that new car they always wanted. Valentine's Day is coming, giving couples a chance to buy each other gifts and show extra romance, while those that are single bemoan the fact it's even an occasion — there's no escape.

Nintendo, for its part, is using the occasion to persuade particularly generous couples to lavish new gaming machines upon each other, with the official Nintendo UK store launching a "Love Nintendo" campaign, advertising a variety of systems of the pink and white varieties. The main deals, 'For Him' and 'For Her' are below.

Though Nintendo has tweeted referring to "offers", the Luigi system is still its original price of £179.99 — it is exclusive to the Nintendo UK store outside of Japan, however. The pink 3DS XL is £199.99 and comes with a copy of Animal Crossing: New Leaf and also a CD with music from the game.

Not mind-blowing offers, but more a reminder of the store's various 3DS models and options for UK gamers. Are any of you, wherever you are in the world, lavishing such a pricey gift on your loved one this Valentine's Day?
