5. Personalised Map Card

Want to give a meaningful gift? Try this personalised card from Bombus. Tell them where you first met or your honeymoon destination, and they'll put the exact map location on the card.

 

6. The Salt Book of Younger Poets

£9.29, waterstones.com

Poetry is always a winner. This anthology showcases the new crop of young British poets and runs the gamut from lovey-dovey stuff to verses about technology.

 

7. Personalised Street Name

From £22, notonthehigh street. com

Nothing beats a personalised Valentine's present. Send the name of the place you first met and you'll get a personalised street sign for your bedroom wall.

 

8. Marc Jacobs Bang Bang

£27, debenhams.com

It's all about masculine sandalwood and light and airy citrus notes in this, the new iteration of Marc Jacob's Bang scent. It's so nice, you could steal it from your chap and use it yourself.

 

9. Nicolas Feuillatte Rosé

£45, johnlewis.com

Ditch the cheap plonk and plump for something a little more impressive. This pink champagne from Nicolas Feuillatte is light, fruity and comes in its own presentation box.

 

10. Truffle Butter

£9.99, selfridges.com

Chocolates are perfectly nice, but not the most original of gift ideas. For real foodies, get this lip-smacking truffle butter, which can be used on everything from poultry to pasta.
