Instead of tracking the latest trends or providing a standard list of Valentine’s Day-themed gifts, we decided to look inward, asking our fellow Amazon Pay employees to recommend their favorite gifts or wish-list items in honor of the romantic holiday. The compilation is half traditional, half remarkable, and 100% memorable. Without further ado, here’s our list of the most desired Valentine’s Day gifts, curated by the employees of Amazon Pay:

Let’s start with the traditional gifts…
