Customisable Valentine's Boarding Pass Pillow
Airport Tag have released a special pillow, especially for Valentine's Day. You can customise names, dates and even destinations.
Why not get creative with the destinations - from where you met to FOR-ever?
Personalised Portrait or Bag Tag
Chrissy from What When Who Where Why creates beautiful, unique artworks. You could order a family portrait, or just one of you with your pilot.
She also creates luggage tags if you're looking for something a little smaller.
Chrissy is currently running a Valentine's special as well as $5 off all orders in January.

When your pilot is working on Valentine's Day it can be difficult to come up with a way to show them you love them.
Little love letters hidden in their luggage and flight bag can remind them how much you love them.
Tuck one in their headphone case, another with their sunglasses, maybe "I'm 'shaving' myself for you" in his toiletry bag. You get the idea.
Another idea if your pilot isn't home on Valentine's Day is to arrange to have a gift basket or their favourite food delivered to their hotel.
Hotel food can be expensive and is often not great quality so your pilot is sure to appreciate a special treat.
You may wish to check with the company if they can make alternative arrangements in case the plane doesn't end up at its intended destination (as is known to happen at times!!).
Passport Cover - since their passport gets a lot of use, it's a great idea for them to put it in a cover. What better cover than one which reminds them how much you love them every time they look at it?
For other passport cover options, head over to Airport Tag to see their huge range.
If you like to have a bit of fun with your other half, why not buy him a tube of Fresh Balls!
What (male) pilot wouldn't love to make sure the boys arrive at their destination feeling as fresh as a daisy, despite the long hours squished in the seat.
Pilot and Pilot Wife Picnic Basket
Another pilot wife has this adorable customised picnic basket on her Etsy site. It comes with everything you need for a romantic picnic for two (minus the food and drink) and you can customise the text on the glasses.
For other aviation themed gifts, you can view the rest of her Etsy products here.
Custom SoundWave Artwork
This one may be a better idea for your pilot to gift you. Even when he's away you can have a reminder of his voice in your home.
You can customise the size and colours to suit your decor and they ship free worldwide.
Keeping a model of the different planes your pilot has flown can make for a wonderful gift. Why not start or add to his collection by finding the first plane he ever flew, the plane he flies now or even the one he was flying when you met him. 1 Airline Airplane Military Models eBay store has a wide range of new and vintage models, as well as other aviation memorabilia.
