Here are a few tried-and-true Valentine’s Day gift items well-suited for the gadget fiends in your sphere.

    Guilloche Yozakura Fountain and Ballpoint Pens from Graf Von Faber-Castell (
    The Japanese cherry blossoming served as the inspiration behind the creation of Graf von Faber-Castell’s exquisite Guilloche Yozakura collection. A true luxury for the loves in your life. The fountain pen and twist ballpoint pen, which are offered in multiple colorways that includes a warm, soft rose hue, are perfect for noting down thoughts, ideas, appointments and tasks. The high-quality writing implements are presented in a gift box decorated adorned with a Japanese cherry blossom motif. Matching ink is available in an elegant bottle or as a folding box with six cartridges.  All Graf von Faber-Castell’s Guilloche writing instruments are made of precious resin and distinguished by a special process. Each one is engraved individually using a method otherwise reserved for jewelry or silver accessories. Guilloches—ornamental patterns of fine, engraved lines—originally adorned precious watches and accessories such as the legendary Fabergé eggs. Graf von Faber-Castell uses this traditional jewelling technique to transform the writing instruments in the Guilloche series into true pieces of jewelry: The precious resin barrel is given a filigree pattern line by line and then further refined in manual lacquering and polishing processes. The Guilloche models are available in many expressive color variations, as well as in a rhodium-plated finish. No two writing implements are identical: each is an individual example of the craftsman’s art.
