I’m not exactly a romantic person. I’ve pretty much always ran in the opposite direction of mushiness — especially with Valentine’s Day. Yet these 10 gifts are as thoughtful and beautiful as they are romantic — and I dig them:
Custom Couple Illustration, $50 1 of 10The Etsy shop Heart Serene will custom-illustrate a watercolor image of you and your love, and then send it to you as a digital file for you to print out any way you'd like (such as a card or wall hanging).
Buy from Etsy/Heart Serene.
Vintage Style Red Heart Locket Necklace, $88 2 of 10The antique brass locket is beautiful on its own, but the hand-embroidered heart adds an extra special touch.
Buy from Etsy/Stella Saves The Day.
Personalized Carved Initials Cufflinks, $45 3 of 10If you have a romantic husband who likes to wear his heart on his sleeve (ahem), these personalized cufflinks will make him smile.
Buy from Etsy/Block Party Press.
Embroidered Initial with Heart Necklace, $37 4 of 10This Etsy shop makes a variety of beautiful hand-embroidered necklaces in every initial (and a few designs). This heart necklace is a special edition for Valentine's Day, but it can be customized with any initial and colors.
Buy from Etsy/Merriweathercouncil.
Designed for Each Other, $16 5 of 10For your coffee-lover lover.
Buy from Etsy/Brookish.
Stacking Initial Rings, set of three, $120 6 of 10Any woman would love these initial rings, handmade and custom designed.
Buy from Etsy/ Fruition Jewelry.
Key to My Heart Ornament and Keepsake, $36 7 of 10This is almost a little too cutesy-ish for me, but anything designed by Paloma's Nest is exquisite.
Buy from Etsy/Paloma's Nest.
Personalized Book Necklace Sterling Silver, $142 8 of 10This mini book necklace — made to look rustic and well-worn — can be filled with your own quotes or words, and can include as many or as few pages as you'd like.
Buy from Etsy/Moon Over Maize.
Mens Valentine Gift Hammered Bracelet, $26 9 of 10If your husband likes to wear jewelry, this cuff bracelet can be customized with any quote (although I like "keeper of my soul, holder of my heart"). And it's affordable, too.
Buy from Etsy/Wyoming Creative.
For Him Infinity Bracelet, $13.48 10 of 10Another affordable, thoughtful, unique gift idea for men who wear jewelry.
Buy from Etsy/Kosmika.
