Not sure what to get your beloved for Valentine's Day? We asked Londoners' to let their imaginations run wild and tell us what they really want this February 14 via the medium of the Post-It note. Spoiler alert: Londoners don't want cheesy cards or a teddy bears.
 
The results were funny, moving, romantic, sad and – of course – unashamedly filthy. But they might just give you a gift idea for your significant other on the big day itself. And remember there's plenty more fun in February after Valentine's Day 2017 is over.
