Ten valentines presents you’ll actually want to receive

Valentine’s Day is just round the corner, which normally means you’ve got a cheesy teddy or overpriced bouquet winging its way to you. Save yourself from forced grins by sending this to your other half: we’ve sourced a cool collection of V-day pressies they won’t need to keep the receipt for.

For the realist
Not every relationship involves reciting poetry whilst gazing into each other's eyes. If you find Valentine's Day's hearts and hyperbole a bit boak-inducing then you'll love this cool print. 

I Like You art print, £6, La La Land

For the cat lover
We're crazy about the collab between Agent Provocateur and Charlotte Olympia. Our pick of the litter is these gorgeous flats, which come with a silk satin eye mask and coordinating pouch.

Cat Nap leopard print set, £395, Agent Provocateur 
For the party animal
A bottle of vodka might seem a bit grim as a V-day gift, but a set of fun flavoured miniatures is decidedly less Bridget Jones. Cucumber, toffee fudge and mango all sound great, but we'd guzzle the marshmallow bottle first!

V Gallery miniature gift pack, £12.89, Drink Supermarket 
For the pop culture vulture
Telling someone you love them more than Kim loves selfies and Kanye loves himself is pretty much the ultimate declaration of desire. Do it.

Diva Love greeting card, £3, La La Land
For the beauty queen
Tom Ford's limited edition Lips & Boys lipstick collection features 25 new shades alongside 25 best-sellers. Picking one is impossible so snap up the complimentary box you get when buying three from Selfridges.

Lips & Boys 2015 collection, £27 each, Selfridges
For the foodie
We love pizza. We love chocolate. You can get a pizza made from chocolate? What a time to be alive!

The Gourmet Chocolate Pizza, £9.99, I Want One of Those
For those who don't share
Nothing screams 'get your own' quite like a personalised set of dip bowls, but being heart-shaped says 'still cute though'. 

Heart dip bowls, £29.95, Prezzybox
For the luxe lover
You'll be hard-pushed to find a gal who doesn't swoon at the thought of opening a box to discover one of Jo Malone London's iconic candles. The red roses scent's durability puts the real deal to shame, it'll outlast any bouquet.

Red roses home candle, £42, Jo Malone London
For the classy, sexy, cool
Buying your fiancé underwear is a potential minefield. Defuse the situation by buying a set that looks cool, rather than try-hard sexy. This bralette looks great peeking out a low-back top and it's comfortable too!

Erica bralette, £18, with black bonded short, £12, both Ultimo
For the fussy
If your other half is notoriously hard to buy for – and knows it – get them a gift card for their favourite shop. They'll be chuffed to have free reign on their present and you don't have the stress of worrying if they like it!

Gift card available from House of Fraser
