Love doesn’t happen every day–and it doesn’t happen to just anyone. So when a day comes along—like Valentine’s Day—that lets me celebrate those I love, I dream of gifts that are as unique and special as they are. I can tell you how I’m going to achieve this, in a single word: personalization. It turns out that creative minds have dreamed up some really fantastic, one-of-a-kind gifts. From anniversary dates and favorite sayings to bobble heads, digital technology has made it easier than ever to create highly customized gifts at very reasonable prices. So when it comes to love, I’m making it personal this Valentine’s Day. Here are a few of our top picks.

Share a Love Story

A perfect piece of art to hang in an entry or hallway, the Personalized Eye Chart Wall Art ($79.95) shares the “Story of Us” by incorporating the name of your loved one in a really unique and imaginative way.



From the first kiss to a wedding to the birth of a child, love always has a beginning. The Personalized Couples Key Dates Wall Art ($79.95) displays the most important dates of any love story in a highly stylized way. (Added bonus: forgetting anniversaries is no longer an option with this décor.)




Finally, why get lost in the love stories of fictional characters when you have your own love story to share. The Personalized LoveBook ($29.95) offers hundreds of customizable pages to choose from, or you can create your own using stylized drawing and scratch tools.



Because Laughter Makes Loves Last

Sometimes the best thing about love is sharing the same whacky sense of humor. Give your loved one a gift they will never forget—their own Custom Bobblehead ($139). I guarantee that this is NOT the gift your loved one was expecting, and re-gifting won’t be an issue.



Bring on the Romance

Whether your version of sexy is a scented oil massage or breakfast in bed—or, if you’re like me, a day of completed home improvement projects (pathetic, I know)—the Personalized Naughty Coupons for Lovers ($24.95) delivers 20 customized, racy promises that will make your love’s heart flutter.


Or, help set the mood in any bedroom with the Personalized Famous Couples Throw Pillow Cover ($49.95)  It puts two lovers of your choice right in the mix of some of the greatest, most classic love stories of all time.
