Lovers will often turn to the traditional gifts come 14 February, such as a bouquet of flowers, box of chocolates, or sexy lingerie.

While some may gift a single red rose, others may go all out for a dozen red roses.

However, a bouquet doesn’t have to be made of flowers, as there are a vast array of alternative options for this year.

Edible bouquets are a popular alternative to floral arrangements.

If you are buying for someone with a sweet tooth, a chocolate bouquet this Valentine’s Day is a winning buy.

While some may want to go the extra mile with a romantic bouquet that includes chocolate covered strawberries, or donuts with alcohol, which are perfect for the man or woman in your life.

However, some may prefer a healthier alternative, such as a fruit cluster.

But, savoury fans do not have to miss out as there are bouquets filled with crisps, to get the taste buds tingling.

No matter what your flavour preferences are, or budget, there is something for everyone.
