Not bad, but not that creative...a plate with a heart?! Eh... How about an idea for those of us who are broke yet would like to give something extra special and unique like a personalised song? The only problem is, if you're giving it to a lady friend, you run the risk of having her fall in love with the performers...they're hot!! www.yoursongproject.co.uk

All is brimming with romance in London's shops at the moment. We've rounded up our pick of the capital's presents for all budgets – from his and hers crockery to limited edition love-print Vans. What's not to love about these goodies, eh?
Tea for two, open heart surgery lectures and swinging (the type of dance) - it's all happening this Valentine's Day.
Even the worst of present-buyers can't go wrong with a classic box of chocs - find the best cocoa connoisseurs in town.
Roses are red, violets are blue... yeah, yeah, poems are great, but where do I buy the real things?
Quite frankly McDonald's on Valentine's Day just won't cut it, discover the best eateries for romance
In terms of more imaginative gifts, might want to think about a chocolate making course at Paul A Young or Rococos. If your valentine is a perfume fan rather than getting another bottle, get them to create their own one at 4160tuesdays or go on a Odette Toilette event.
