Regardless of the occasion or time of year, everyone loves a gift, especially when there’s some thought put into it.

While the classic Valentine's Day gifts like chocolates and flowers won't go amiss, Valentine's Day is also a great opportunity to find a unique gift tailored made for your lover.

Now I’m not suggesting you go and get every person you’re considering a limited edition Be@rbrick or a rare gorpcore garment (although these will make nice gifts as well), but rather items that compliment the individual in some way and remind them of your kinship.

With that in mind, our editors have taken the guesswork out of the upcoming festivities to save you some time so you can spend it where it counts. Featuring distinctive pieces by Alessi and Zordan Generazione, these gifts are sure to make that lucky person feel even luckier.
