Choosing a Valentine's Day present isn't always as easy as you think!
Sure, a dozen red roses, a super-cute bear or anything heart-shaped might be a good option, but they're not to everyone's taste!
Today the experts from the Best10DatingGuide team, who review the best 10 dating sites across a broad range of relationship niches, provide some of our recommendations for the top Valentine's Day gift ideas that will knock their socks off.
If you're beginning a romance on one of the popular bisexual dating sites or have an unconventional relationship, likely, you're not keen on the generic presents that flood the shops every February.
Let's get started with some of the Valentine's Day gift ideas that have made us raise an eyebrow or laugh out loud.
Get this right, and you're golden - but tread carefully!
Mini dolls, towels, t-shirts and pillows printed with your beautiful face are ridiculously funny, but you need to have a partner with a great sense of humour so it doesn't come across as a tad possessive!
Perhaps a little passive-aggressive if it's a serious issue in your relationship, but if you want your partner to spend more time paying you attention, this could be a good option.
It's a nice way to gently suggest that you'd like a romantic evening by agreeing to both lock your phones in a sweet mini jail and make sure all your focus is on each other.
Try Strip Cluedo or Monogamy if you want to play a game with a steamy difference!
These are just a couple of examples, but you can make each other smile and get to act out some of your wildest fantasies without a remote control in sight.
You can buy bouquets of your partner's favourite things, showing that you know their personality inside out, and have put real thought (without a tonne of effort) into picking a great gift.
Chorizo bouquet, sweet treats or an arrangement of cheeses, anyone?

So much of the a-typical Valentine's fare is aimed at women, so if you want to find a brilliant Valentine's Day surprise for him, you might have to put more imagination into it than nipping to the garage for a wilting bunch of flowers on your way home.
Forget boring aftershave or another pair of socks; let's be a little more creative about treating the guys in our lives!
If you don't get to see your date as often as you'd like, or you're dealing with a long-distance relationship on one of the bisexual dating sites, here's an option to feel closer.
Moulding kits are exactly what you think they are, and you can create your very own, heavily bespoke vibrator based on the precise credentials of your favourite person!
It's silly, funny, and a flirty way to remind your love that they're the only one for you, in all the important ways.
Not all guys are into beer pong and beards, and if your partner is sensitive or needs reassurance that they're always in your thoughts, love notes are a wonderful way to say I love you.
You can buy a set of love notes online, packaged beautifully, or create your own with a pen, a load of coloured paper strips, and a glass pot or sealable mason jar.
Write down 365 notes so every day of the year, your loved one can open a little reminder of why they're so important.
Nope, we're not going to suggest a box of chocolates - we're looking at amazing surprises to suit the diverse personalities we see on the best 10 dating sites, after all!
A giant, luxurious Hershey's Kiss is a hilarious gift that anyone who has a chocolate craving will adore.
Think of it as a traditional Valentine's Day surprise for him, but with a super-sized difference.
If you're in a committed relationship, you've probably given countless bottles of champagne, sparkly jewellery and flowers on Valentine's Day, so make 2022 the year you do something your partner isn't expecting.
Here are some of our favourites:
While we're talking about cost, it's also worth remembering that you don't need to spend six months of your salary on diamonds or put yourself in a pinch by splashing out on a Valentine's gift that you can't comfortably afford.
A few of the ideas here are things you can DIY, but if you're stuck for inspiration, why not:
We hope these suggestions have helped you narrow down the perfect gift for your favourite person this year.
Let's not forget, love isn't limited, so if you're feeling generous, perhaps surprise your Mum, BFF, work spouse or anyone else important to you with a gesture that will make them feel loved this Valentine's.
