Razor Blade Necklace
Crafted by Brooklyn-based jewelry designer Judith Hoetker, this bauble forgoes Tiffany preciousness for rocker allure — love hurts.

Ukiyo5 Limited Edition Silk Ties
Designed by Swiss-based artist Ukiyo5, the Japanimation-influenced vector graphics on these 100% silk ties can be secreted away under a sportcoat if the occasion demands.

$38 from Pixelgirl Shop.


Classic mix tapes are unbeatable for expressing perfect High Fidelity-style love, but a custom playlist burned on one of these discs should still get your Valentine in the right mood.
