If you're tired of giving (or receiving) the usual flowery heart-shaped chocolate boxes and cards to your special someone on anniversaries and Valentine's Day, the Marc Alain Hearts series offers an unusual, but incredibly charming solution. The photographer and mixed-media artist creates heart collages using everyday objects and imagery not traditionally associated with love or romance.

Taking a literal (and almost ironic) approach to the phrase "make love, not war," Alain creates a lovely heart-shaped collage using photographs of explosives, and another of missiles. If you're looking for something a little softer, the Baby Birds collage is incredibly quirky and will definitely put a smile on your loved one's face.

For an incredibly creative and unique change from the standard romantic gifts and cards, check out the Marc Alain Hearts series. Stats for Unconventional Romance Collages Trending: Older & Mild
