Some may be strongly against it, but celebrating Valentine's Day can be an occasion to give yourself and your partner some quality time or just enjoy a treat together.

Are you looking for some inspiration to celebrate?

Here are a few ideas for different budgets to enjoy the day dedicated to love and romance.

Are you a sugar-glazed couple, meaning that it is a sacrilege to you to end a meal without dessert?

For couples with a sweet tooth, there are some great local producers baking up a delicious storm for Valentine's.

To stir away from the usual chocolates, why not to go nuts with doughnuts? Perk's special Valentine Boxes (£24) and their Valentine's Day package (£30) are a great option.

Or if you are more one for biscuits and down the Nairn way, Jemima's Treat Tins special love treat boxes (£15) are another tasty idea!

Bowling date night
