Funny, touching and offbeat Valentine's Day gifts for under £10 a go

Valentine's Day can be a rather awkward occasion.

On the one hand, you don't want to buy into the mass marketing machine that governs overpriced meals for two and squeamishly "romantic" gifts. On the other hand, not to get anything at all might come across as churlish in a long-term relationship.

Then there's the added complication of someone you've just met two weeks ago, or are dating but not exclusively. Will a present come across as try-hard? Or is your person of the moment actually expecting something? 

We've picked out 20 alternative gifts for Valentine's Day to match any level of tricky dynamic.

Whether you're after a touching token for your loved one that won't break the bank, or a flippant and witty offering that covers a not-sure-where-you-stand relationship, these offbeat gifts should do the trick. The best bit? They're all under £10.
