Valentine's Day is just weeks away and it's time to start thinking about gifting options.
Whilst roses are a timeless symbol of love, many of us will agree that an arrangement of the vibrant flowers is a bit of a cliché, especially when you're looking to wow someone.
Thankfully, there are plenty of alternative bouquets on the market that will help you say 'I love you' with other items, such as chocolate, candles and even gin (hallelujah!).
What's more, most of these unusual arrangements are available to buy online – just be sure to order in time for big day.
If your loved one is partial to a candle or two, Amazon is selling a range of Yankee Candle bouquets (from £27.95) on its website.
Each special gift features a selection of miniature Yankee Candles in a variety of uplifting scents like 'Pink Sands' and 'Soft Blanket', adorned with roses and a box of chocolates in the middle.
For booze lovers, Edinburgh Gin has created a combination of gorgeous flowers and delicious gin – which comes in three variations.
The bouquets have been made to match the botanicals in the gins and sit on top of an eye-catching box. Impressive!
Below is a list of our favourite alternative Valentine's Day bouquets that are available online now.
