For any would-be lovers or people in established, loving relationships, consider this as your two-week warning.

With Valentine's Day on the horizon, it's all too easy to point at the man who's making a panicked sprint to the local petrol station on the morning of February 14 to buy some battered flowers and a card that vaguely captures any semblance of romantic sentiment. 

We asked an AI chat app why this day was so significant, and it burped up the following pearl of wisdom: "Valentine's Day is important as it celebrates love and affection between intimate companions. It is typically observed on February 14th and is associated with giving gifts, such as chocolates, flowers, and cards, to express love and appreciation. The holiday has been celebrated for centuries and continues to be a significant cultural event worldwide."

Even robots can sense when a quick visit to the petrol station just won't do. But this is where rock will step in and save the day, as it does on so many occasions. 

Def Leppard, whose steamy oeuvre has soundtracked many loving unions, have released their own range of Valentine's Day cards. With six separate designs to choose from – Joe, Phil, Sav, Rick, Viv and the late Steve Clark – these cards say, 'I'm organised and I'm ready for some spontaneous lovemaking'. Three of the designs feature the lads with their shirt off, for some added zing come the big day. 

But don't take our word for it. 

"Send some Leppard love with these classic Def Leppard valentine cards!" says the accompanying blurb at the Def Leppard Vault. "Vibrant, fun, and smoking hot, these valentines are the perfect way to show your affection."

Place your orders now and bask in a wave of giddy, tingling anticipation.
