Looking for the right card for your favorite nonfat, half-caf, no-whip-loving Valentine? Don't let her toss the cup her latte came in.

Until Feb. 16, Starbucks will use cups that work with their augmented reality Cup Magic app.

If you hold your phone in front of your drink, the app adds flower petals, hearts and the other pastel-colored symbols that will decorate next Tuesday. (Hear that, guys? VALENTINE'S DAY IS NEXT TUESDAY.) Of course, there's also a call to action: The company hopes you'll use the virtual app to buy a very real Starbucks gift card, since most of their good things come in Tall (or Venti or Grande) packages.
