When it comes to giving a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift, personalization is key. This holiday is all about showing affection and appreciation for your significant other — and there’s no better way to say, “I love you,” than with a gift they can’t buy for themselves, like a custom necklace or an engraved watch. If you’re looking for the perfect present for that special someone in your life, we suggest heading over to Amazon.

The retailer has a storefront, known as the Amazon Handmade shop, that’s filled with an array of custom-made items from verified sellers around the world. Similar to Etsy, the shop is a space for artisans to sell their unique, handcrafted creations; you’ll find everything from custom wooden cutting boards to handmade soaps. Amazon makes its sellers go through an application and audit process to ensure the shops only sell quality products that are worth your money.

Right now, the shop has a curated list of Valentine’s Day gift ideas that includes items like romantic cards and beauty and grooming products to treat your person to. But what we’re most excited about is the selection of personalized gifts. If you’re shopping for a gift for her, there are personalized necklaces and candles, plus hand-painted ring dishes; some great gifts for him include these custom leather Apple watch bands and this laser-engraved pocket knife.

Here’s how it works: Select the item you want customized, then click “Select Options” and choose things like the font, finish, and inscription. While Amazon Prime members still enjoy free two-day shipping, some sellers charge an additional fee for faster shipping, and delivery dates can vary based on your location. To ensure you gift arrives on time, we recommend placing any Valentine’s Day orders ASAP.

To make things even easier for you, we went through and chose 10 custom gifts from the Amazon Handmade shop that we think would make great Valentine’s Day gifts for your loved one. Keep scrolling to shop them!
