As a shopping editor, I see a lot of stuff; therefore, I can tell you from a professional (and personal) standpoint — there is nothing better than a personalized gift.
Speaking for myself, I am very picky (a consequence of the job!), so if something has been customized with my name, initials, birthstone, etc., it automatically falls within the "this is incredible" category. From the viewpoint of my friends and family, the sentiment remains.
Whether a monogrammed accessory, an engraved phone case, or (my personal favourite) personalized stationery, a custom Valentine's Day gift is an extra thoughtful way to show how much you care.
