If you're looking for a romantic gift with a difference on 14 February then help is at hand.

The comic poet Purple Ronnie is creating a one-off poem for every colour bought as a Valentine's gift this year, all in aid of UNICEF.

From 8-14 February, you can buy one of 16.7 million unique colours for your Valentine through facebook.com/OwnAColour for a minimum donation of £1. 

The poem, written in Purple Ronnie’s famous cheeky style, will then appear on your loved one's Facebook wall on 14 February, along with a link for them to pick and name their very own colour. 

Celebrity fans of Own a Colour include Frankie Sandford from The Saturdays and UNICEF Ambassadors Jemima Khan, Matt Dawson and Sir Roger Moore.

They've all been inspired by their loved ones to buy and name a colour: Jemima Khan named hers CFC Blue for her Chelsea-mad son, Sir Roger Moore’s Swedish Blue is for his wife, and Matt Dawson’s colour reminds him of his wedding day.

Find out more and buy your Valentine's gift.
