* This is not just a sausage, this is an M&S Love Sausage…

If you fancy an innuendo-laden breakfast treat, then get yourself down to Marks and Spencer in King William Street.

Described as ‘heart-shaped, lightly-truffled and wrapped in bacon’, the Love Sausage is in stores now and costs £5.

* Inspired by this year’s crop of celebrities stumbling around the rink on Dancing on Ice?

Just don’t do a Gemma Collins and fall flat on your face.

* While we’d all like to be whisked off to Venice, Verona or Rome this Valentine’s, chances are it’s not going to happen.

But the lovely people at A Mano Restaurant & Bar are offering a taste of Italy at a fraction of the cost. The Cathedral Square eatery is shunning over-priced set menus and will be offering its usual decent prices. More pennies for a nice pressie! Call 01254 447234.

* ”But what if I want to go fancy?”, I hear you cry like Lorraine Kelly in that annoying Wayfair advert.

Northcote is also offering bed and breakfast stays, as well as a lunch menu. Visit

* Enjoy a night sleeping under the stars with your loved one. Rossendale Holiday Cottages offers luxury glamping pods where you can leave the world behind in your own cosy love nest.
