It's Valentine's Day. You're thinking underwear. But you don't want to get it wrong or be taken too seriously. We've got the perfect answer. And if you don't give your lover Boris Johnson pants this year, then when?

Keyrings might not strike you as the most romantic gift idea ever. But add a little personal touch — the exact location you met/first snogged/got married — and throw in a little jigsaw puzzle element, and we think you'll be onto a winner. Bonus points if you're asking someone to move in with you and are able to add some 'You complete me' schmaltz as you hand the keys over.
Personalised jigsaw keyrings, £19.95

A bunch of overpriced Valentine's blooms will only last so long. Give a longer-lasting floral gift, inspired by the lovely people at London's ever brilliant Kew Gardens.
Kew Royal Botanic Gardens Large Metal Pot, Meadow Flowers, £15

Valentine's and chocolates go together like Spanish teenagers and Camden Market. Give your chocolate a London-y twist with these slims from John Lewis.
House Of Dorchester milk chocolate slims, London design, £5

We love these skyline rings from Scottish jeweller, Hannah Louise Lamb. There's something enigmatic about this design: a lovely nod to the greatest city on earth. Hannah can work with you to create a custom silhouette before she starts making the ring, and can even add a beautiful sparkly diamonds to add a bit of bling.
