Alternative Valentine's Day Gifts

According to a recent survey of 2,000 Brits by Notonthehighstreet, one in two people would rather a romantic gift with sentimental value than another set of too-small lacy undies or a bunch of wilting flowers.

So forget the commercial card-shop clichés like human-sized cuddly toys and heart-shaped chocolates, and surprise your partner with something different this Valentine's Day.

These alternative gift ideas are for those who think Valentine's Day is a load of commercial tosh (but would be secretly disappointed if their partner forgot).
