Is a box of chocolates or a teddy bear not really your partner's thing? Well, don't worry – we've rounded up eight music-themed gifts perfect for any music lover.
With Valentine's Day swiftly approaching – the present panic swiftly ensues.
It usually swoops in as the countdown to the romantic day begins, and supermarkets are ransacked of flower bouquets, all manner of chocolate and bottles of fizz.
If your other half is a big music fan, and you're looking for something a little more personal – we've found 8 unique and wonderful musical-themed gifts that might do the trick.
Style, comfort, warmth and most importantly – Bowie. Is anything else needed?
If your other half is a David Bowie super fan, then these quirky socks – named, of course, 'David Toewie' – might be the perfect Valentine's surprise.
They're destined to make anyone sporting them feel like a 'Starman' (sorry, it just had to be done).
Find the socks here.
When you think of your other half, does a certain song spring to mind?
Maybe it was your first dance, first date – or just a tune they simply can't get enough of.
This print takes a sound wave from the music your partner cherishes, and creates a bespoke print. You can find it here.
In this digital age, you can never have too much storage – so why don't you swap the standard stick with this snazzy mixtape USB.
Not only is it completely functional, but it also provides that sweet moment of nostalgia every time you use it.
You can get your hands on it here.
You're on a night out, your favourite song comes on and as your mid-song, singing your heart out, a friend points out you've got the lyrics completely wrong. We've all been there.
Or maybe it's your other half who is a serial lyric mistaker.
It's time to embrace lyrical mishaps with these fun cork coasters, printed with mistaken lyrics such as "we found love in a soapless place" and "sweet dreams are made of cheese".
Get your hands on them here.
If you're planning on spending Valentine's Day at home with your beau, and you've still not settled on the music you want to soundtrack your romantic evening – we've got you covered.
Swap the Spotify playlist for the sweet sounds of A Star Is Born on vinyl, and accompany your candle-lit dinner for two with love songs sang by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.
Find it here.
Is your partner partial to a good brew? Well, we imagine sipping hot tea out of this novelty Elton John mug would make it taste that little bit better.
Swap the standard white porcelain for this hilarious mug, which features a fantastic illustration of the legendary musician with the quote: "I guess that's why they call it a brew."
There's even another style with Freddy Mercury too.
Find your partner's potentially new favourite mug here.
It's time to swap the weathered keyring your other half got from Spain all those years ago for an upgrade.
Show that someone special just how well you know them, by surprising them with this personal keyring of their favourite vinyl.
Buy the keyring here.
If you're looking for the perfect piece of jewellery to treat your loved one to this Valentine's Day – maybe this personalised sound wave necklace is just the right one.
If there's a song that has a special meaning to your partner – take a sound wave from the tune and decorate a piece of bespoke jewellery with it.
Jewellery is always a Valentine's Day favourite – but adding that element of personalisation makes it even more special. Find it here.
