There are usually a few ways Valentine’s Day gifts can go. They can either be super kitschy (think teddy bears holding hearts or boxes of chocolates covered in red foil), very predictable (spa day for two, candletlit dinner), or totally over the top (watches, handbags, diamonds).
Not that we’d ever be mad if we got any of the above (all the chocolates, please), but if you’re looking to break free of your cliche gift routine this year (or you want to drop hints to someone who could use some help) we found a super creative, personal gift that’s a perfectly suited for your or your better half: couples drawings from Diary Sketches. The illustrator, Laura Kay, uses a photo of you and your honey to create an illustrated portrait that you can hang up at home. (If you’re married or cohabitating, it’s sort of like a gift for both of you–a fun way to be reminded of a favorite memory every day).
