Editor’s Picks: Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day present for your modern design-loving sweetheart? Here are a few special gift ideas for that special, design-savvy someone in your life: 

Love Light from SLIDE Design

Express your undying love for your Valentine with the SLIDE Design Love Light. The romantic shape of this oversized lamp is quiet the heartthrob.

Classic Tray, Love Heart from Vitra

Serve up a little love with the Classic Tray from Vitra, featuring the iconic Love Heart graphic by Alexander Girard in pink and red.

Big Love Ice Cream Bowl and Spoon from Alessi

Eating a pint of ice cream by yourself on Valentine’s day may be a cliche. But sharing a pint of ice cream with your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day out of the Big Love Ice Cream Bowl and Heart Shaped Spoon certainly isn’t.

Bump Teapot and Tea Cups from Tom Dixon

The Bump Teapot and Tea Cups are a great way to add a little heat to your Valentine’s Day. This beautifully curvy–and sweetly pink–teapot and pair of tea cups serve up steaming tea in style.

Urban Fragments, Les Amoureux from Lyon Beton

Modern Valentine’s Day gifts don’t have to be stuffy. Go outside the box, and make a gift of a piece of unique, yet sweetly comical work of art, like the Urban Fragments, Les Amoureux.

Girard Environmental Enrichment Panels from Herman Miller

Or perhaps your Valentine likes their wall art a bit more mid-century modern. Like the Love Tray, the available selection of wall panels feature sharp, graphic–and yes, romantic–designs by Alexander Girard.

(PRODUCT)RED Special Edition Anna G. Corkscrew from Alessi

Need a way to stylishly open that expensive bottle of wine, show your Valentine how much you care, and know that you’re doing good in the world? Then scoop up a (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition Anna G. Corkscrew. Help to fight AIDS and declare your love, all over a nice glass of wine.

Nature Porcelain Bird Vase from Chive

Flowers are a simple and sweet way to show your Valentine how much you care. The Nature Porcelain Bird Vase is the perfect place to display that bountiful bouquet of wildflowers you picked for your sweetheart.

Blossom Pillow from Surya

You can also show someone you care with a bouquet that will never fade away. The Blossom Pillow is thickly adorned with touchably soft felt flowers; a great touch of romance for any sofa or bed.

Kiss Sofa from Heller

Finally, that Valentine’s Day gift for when you really want to go big. The Kiss Sofa may be a little over the top, but is there really any such thing when it comes to showing someone you love them?
