Animoto is one of the best tools for sending personalized video slideshows to your friends and they’ve got tons of great themes, including some great new Valentine’s Day themes. Animoto lets you create unlimited full-length videos for $5 a month or 30-second videos for free. I made a 30-second Valentine’s video with pictures of my dog.

JibJab is the go to destination for hilarious video eCards.

Borrow From YouTube or Vimeo

If you don’t care about adding your own personal greeting to a video then you can always do a search in YouTube or Vimeo for Valentine’s Day cards. You’ll be surprised how many great one’s you’ll find. This can be great if you want to wish people a Happy Valentine’s day on Facebook or Twitter – just post the link! Check out this great Valentine’s Day video I found on Vimeo, made by Lorcan Finnegan. Maybe you’ll decide to share this one with your friends, family or that special someone next week.

Make An Online Video From Scratch

Finally, nothing says “I Love You” like something you made yourself and when you make an online video you aren’t only saying “I Love You” to your girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, wife or “special friend”, you’re also showing the whole World Wide Web how you feel.

Don’t be intimidated by the amazing video below, made by Karen Abad. Even if you don’t have mad filmmaking skills like Karen you can still make a video to express your love using your webcam, digital camera, or even the camera on your phone or even make a movie without a camera using a tool like Xtranormal. Remember it’s the thought that counts, and if that special someone sees that you put some time into making an online video they’ll love you for it even more than they already do.
