Valentines Gifts

We have been studiously ignoring the huge swathe of Valentines gifts popping up all over the place in the last few weeks, but this collection we found over at If It’s Hip It’s Here was simply too good to miss out on.

After all, Valentines Day does (like any day on which gifts may be bought and given) lead to some rather interesting pieces of design.

The first collection below are some truly unique Valentine’s gifts suitable to most couples. We particularly loved the statue of a Buddha cut from a single diamond, the custom portraits in either gemstones (Beckham) or lego bricks (below), the heart embossed with your fingerprint, and of course the Chanel bangles.

And then to accompany this we have a selection of gifts for those who would ‘rather celebrate the St Valentine’s Day Massacre’ than the more usual version…

We admit these are pretty horrible, and we are truly amazed at the scope of the ‘anti-Valentines’ market. Clearly those who are revolted by having to spend money on your loved one have no problem spending it on something to demonstrate how much they hate having to spend money… Sometimes we do wonder if the world has gone mad.

But no, it just goes to show you really can sell anything…
