Valentine’s Day gifts are always something I struggle with.  Especially after the fact that we’ve just closed out the holiday season.  So I sit and I brainstorm and I often fail to come up with something more original than a box of chocolates or a stuffed animal.  It’s even harder when you’re married to a guy who already seems to have everything!  Not gonna lie – I’ve given him the same box of chocolates the past two years because he loved the Pit Bull image on the box. Two years in a row was already pretty redundant.  I can’t give him the same box of chocolates for a third year!  Can I?

That’s why, lately, I’ve been turning to personalized gifts.  I love taking photos and capturing moments in a single snap.  Sometimes those photographs end up in a file on my computer or shared through a text.  Other times, they make amazing, heartfelt gifts to give to loved ones.  That’s why this Valentine’s Day, I’m shopping through Minted.  Not only am I set with Valentine’s Day cards to send and gift out to my loved ones, they’ve also got me covered with some great personalized gifts, too!

So let’s talk personalized gifts.  There are definitely a few I would love to give my guy.  I love the “Better Than Whiskey” print paired with a recipe turned into foil art.  The whiskey print reads, “Together we will age better than whiskey.”  

The recipe print could be any recipe of your choosing.  Does your significant other have a favorite recipe?  Turn it into a work of art for him!  I can’t help but think this would make an awesome gift for mom, too.  Immortalize one of her own recipes or use one that’s been handed down!

You could also turn your vows into art work.  Such a cute sentiment!  If you recited standard vows like we did, it might be nice to rewrite some to have framed.  

Or maybe a romantic quote would make a great gift.  Just choose your favorite photo (an engagement picture, a photo of your pet or kids, etc.) and personalize it with one of your favorite quotes!  

Photo collages are a great way to showcase photos.  We’ve been taking a ton lately!  I love this Heart Snapshot Mix®Photo Art to display our photo memories.  

It’s been a while since I’ve handed out Valentines, but this year I decided to get back into card giving.  I really love the variety on Minted and the options available for customization.  I really love all of their foil valentine cards.  The metallic foil gives the cards such a pretty touch!  And if you’re shopping for your littles, Minted has a great variety of classroom Valentine’s Day cards, too!

If you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day with some of the girls, I absolutely love Minted’s personalized notebooks. I ordered a couple of the Glitter Heart Notebooks to give as Galentine’s Day gifts.  With all of these amazing gift options, there’s something to give every one of your Valentines this year!

Will you be giving a personalized gift to your Valentine this year?

      Yes! Exactly! So much more meaningful than a store bought gift!

    These are such good ideas. I especially love the foil art recipe idea. My parents would love that, and are SO hard to gift!!

      The recipe print is one of my favorite gift ideas! And not just for Valentine’s Day! I would give that as a birthday gift or a Mother’s Day gift. 🙂
