    Don't worry — I gotchu. This year, make your S.O.'s heart swell by gifting them something customized that truly shows just how much you love them. Here are some fantastic ideas:

    1. A bracelet featuring the handwriting of the person your S.O. loves most — could be yours, their grandma's, Dolly Parton's, whoever!

    Etsy

    All you need is a copy of your beloved's favorite person's handwriting to have this one-of-a-kind accessory made. This bracelet has the potential to be either really sweet or very funny — your choice.

    Get it from CaitlynMinimalist on Etsy for $27.75+ (available in sizes 5.5–9.6 inches and in three styles).

    2. A personalized reusable Starbucks cup any caffeine fiend will adore.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    If the special someone you're shopping for is constantly sipping on a iced coffee from Starbucks, they will definitely be into this cup. It holds 16 oz (also known as a grande) and can be made in a variety of colors and customized with their name or any other phrase.

    Promising review: "It came sooner than I expected. The quality is very good. I got it as a gift for a friend who loves Starbucks. The inscription I chose was 'Name's Livin' La Vida Mocha,' for those of you looking for good coffee puns." —Joan Watson

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    3. A birthstone bracelet that can include up to 10 stones, so you can make sure every important person in your S.O.'s life is represented.

    Etsy

    Whether your loved one has nine siblings and would love if they were each accounted for on their bracelet or you simply pair your stone with theirs, this is a simple piece of jewelry they're sure to enjoy wearing every day.

    Promising review: "I bought this bracelet as a gift for my girlfriend with both of our birthstones in it & absolutely loved it. I ordered the wrong length at first & the seller was super helpful. I mailed it back & he altered it & returned it promptly. This item is a beautiful, sentimental gift that I highly recommend." —Julia Denise

    Get it from Silveristic on Etsy for $35+ (available in 10 sizes and 32 styles).

    4. A personalized Viewmaster, perfect for anyone who loves a good retro gadget. You can customize the reels with photos that tell your love story!

    Etsy

    Don't be alarmed if your loved one starts crying tears of joy immediately upon receiving this gift. I remember clicking through my Viewmaster as a kid, looking at colorful images of animals and flowers. However, this version of the classic toy will let you add your very own photos — a truly special gift, if you ask me.

    Get it from DrZuschuss on Etsy for $21.72+ (available with or without the Viewer itself).

    5. A gold bar bracelet you can personalize with something meaningful, like the coordinates of the street they grew up on, your anniversary, or a quote you both love.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.57+ (available in three styles).

    6. A set of personalized coasters featuring your love's favorite snapshots (or maybe the most embarrassing ones you can find...hehe).

    Amazon

    Whether your partner is a photographer or simply loves surrounding themselves with pics of friends and family, this is a gift they will appreciate. Designed to look like old-school Polaroid photos, these coasters can be filled with whatever you want! Put your loved one's pet on one, their parents on another, and of course finish it off with a cute selfie of you guys together. Love!

    Promising review: "I love these coasters! I was concerned that it would be difficult to get pictures in but had no problems and used the sample photos as a cutting guide. I've placed snapshots from my travels in the slots and love the potential they have to be conversation starters and how the coasters match and personalize my home decor." —L. C. Lee

    Get it from Amazon for $12.

    7. A pair of hand-painted sneakers with a sunflower design that your S.O. will love more than a living bouquet — plus they'll last longer than a week!

    Etsy

    Let's be honest — flowers are beautiful, but they die. Sneakers are forever (or until you wear a hole through the toe). Let your significant other know they are the sunshine of your life by gifting them these kicks. Flowers not their thing? They also have this mystical pair with illustrated crystals on it!

    Promising review: "I ordered the sunflower Vans and they look absolutely amazing! You can tell he is very passionate about what he does and they look as if they were printed on! This is a very nice way to customize something everyone loves and I’m so glad I ordered!" —madison hysell

    Function of Beauty

    Function of Beauty is just that — functional. People have been raving about how much they love these shampoos and conditioners. If you already know what your S.O. would like to change about their hair, you can place the order for them as a surprise. OR you can let them take the "Hair Quiz," so they can customize their beauty routine from start to finish. Such a unique gift!

    Get it from Amazon for $30 (available in seven colors).

    10. A sheet of custom stickers, so your beloved can decorate their computer, binder, or whatever their heart desires with their pet's face, your face, or a fave celeb.

    Amazon

    I bought these for my husband for Christmas (with his own face on them) so he could play jokes on his coworkers — they were a hit! Perfect for making your S.O. laugh on Valentine's Day and every other day after that.

    Promising review: "I purchased these with a picture of my boyfriend's face and stuck them on valuable things he owns for an April Fool's prank. It's the perfect prank — the stickers leave no residue and my boyfriend has a heart attack every time he finds his face on the inside of his watch, the back of his tie, his charging blocks, and the top of his cologne bottle. It's been 105 days and he still has two faces to go!" —Martie Ogle

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    11. An engraved whiskey glass that you and your love can clink and say "cheers!" with during your romantic Valentine's Day date at home.

    Promising review: "The metal seems a bit heavier than your usual sterling necklace, which seems nicer and more durable.

    Madewell

    Madewell offers a whole slew of items that can be personalized! I really like this simple T-shirt with a short saying embroidered above the pocket — not too overpowering. You can also surprise your partner with embroidered jeans or a jean jacket.

    Get the T-shirt from Madewell for $29.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in four colors) and check out the other customizable items here.

They're be sure to cherish this personalized frame.

    Promising review: "I don't usually review products, but I had to take the time to review this one. I did not expect this frame to be so beautifully carved.

We both loved the design, quality, and price and would highly recommend this to anyone interested in something unique and personal." —A viewer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    20. A cross-stitch family portrait, to showcase how much your relationship has grown and changed since you first got together. (Cue the sobs!)

    Etsy

    My heart is bursting just looking at this intricately crafted cross-stitch! Your significant other's will do the same — because this gift is just so special. The creator encourages you to give as much info as you can to make sure the final product is as detailed as possible. So be ready to provide photos and special clothing requests for this extra-memorable gift.

    Promising review: "Wow!!! I could not be any more impressed! Such great customer service and BEAUTIFUL workmanship. The attention to detail is crazy. I love how they are somewhat 3D, too. Really adds depth to it. Pictures do not do it justice. Brandi was even able to make little Dallas Cowboys shirts for my husband and son! She also was able to prep it for me to put in a frame. Absolutely adore this piece and it’s going to be a part of our family forever." —Jessica Cimmino

    Promising review: "It has now been nine months and these rings are still in amazing condition. Hasn’t greened or gotten dull. I wear them in the shower and swimming and no problems. They never come off of me, and I’d recommend to anyone. I plan on getting another one soon to add!" —M

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in sizes 3-13).

    Project Repat / Via instagram.com

    This one may be a little tricky to do, as you'd need to round up all of their special tees, so maybe don't make this one a complete surprise? I ordered one of these for myself for my birthday and it is one of my favorite possessions. Just imagine diving into a pile of your worn-in, super-soft T-shirts at the end of every day! Perfection.

    Get it from Project Repat for $75+ (available in fives sizes and seven colors).

    26. A washer bracelet featuring a set of coordinates, essential for any long-distance couple.

    Amazon

    My husband and I were in a long-distance relationship for four years, and let me tell you, it is NOT very fun. However, small tokens of appreciation always went a long way during that time. This simple bracelet will let your S.O. feel you're close to them every time they glance down at their wrist.

    Get it from Amazon for $9 (available in four styles).

    27. A set of stainless steel straws that can be customized with quirky sayings like "the last straw" and "gin o'clock." Sip, sip, hooray!

    Madewell

    My husband surprised me with a personalized Madewell bag for my birthday this year and it is possibly one of my very favorite accessories. The initial touch is subtle, but enough to make people say, "Oh, how cute!"

    Promising review: "One of the best features of this bag is that it is lightweight. It is skinny but you can fit your essentials — my iPhone 8 Plus, card holder, car keys, hair ties, and lipstick fit just fine. I’m 5’1” and at its shortest it lies perfectly as a cross-body bag/shoulder bag. This is now my new everyday bag and I absolutely love it!" —Snaz

    Get it from Madewell for $98 (available in five colors).

    31. A delicate initial necklace for the person who prefers simple jewelry they can wear every day.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the second time I have ordered a necklace from here and each time I have been impressed. The initial always comes through a little on the backside but it is barely noticeable. The chain and disc look and feel like good quality. I wore my last one everyday for six months until I lost it. Never had any color changes or breaks. Really great product for the price!" —hrose

    34. A ring with your fingerprint on it, so your true love can carry a piece of your with them at all times (but not in a creepy You stalker-way).

    Etsy

    Where was this product when I was choosing a wedding band!? This is so personal and sweet that your significant other will probably melt immediately at the sight of it. This ring is customized inside and out, with your fingerprint on the outside and an engraving of your choice on the inside.

    Etsy

    Or both. MIGHT AS WELL. If your better half is the handy one in the relationship, they'll get a kick out of this hammer. You can have any quote, saying, name, etc., engraved on this bad boy. Better start thinking of punny ideas!
