Love birds seem to be a pretty common theme for Valentine gifts. But what are love birds in fact? Here is what Wikipedia says:

"Lovebird is the commonly used name for any of the nine species of the genus Agapornis (Greek: αγάπη agape 'love'; όρνις ornis 'bird'). They are a social and affectionate small parrot. Eight species are native to the African continent; the Grey-headed Lovebird is native to Madagascar.

The name Lovebird stems from these parrots' strong, monogamous pair bonding and the long periods of time in which paired birds will spend sat beside one another. This is reflected by the bird's name in other languages: in German, "die Unzertrennlichen", and in French "les inséparables", both meaning "the inseparables"."

So this may be the answer: they love each other and they stay together as a pair as long as they live! This is something that all of us dream for, some of us have but others just seek all their live.

Well, when it comes to designers or illustrators, love birds can be any birds, but they represent the main idea of love, in an elegant or funny way. Below are some beautiful love birds which would make an awesome gift for your beloved one on Valentine's Day and not only.
