Over 32 million Brits will be spending money on their loved ones this Valentine’s Day at around £35 per person. But not everyone is splashing out.

Poundland has sold almost 40,000 £1 engagement rings since January.  The “Bling rings” and “Man Bands” have proved to be a popular alternative to the expense of buying flowers and chocolate.

Happy owners of the budget engagement rings took to Twitter to show them off, with one posting, “I’m still having too much fun with these.”

Others tweeted that the rings are their, “idea of romance”.
