With Valentine’s Day less than a month away it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to get your love this year.  There are many safe and expected gifts, such as cards and stuffed teddy bears, but don’t you think it’s time to step up your game?  No matter how beautiful the flowers are or how sweet the chocolate may happen to be, cliché gifts leave a bitter taste in the mouth of your valentine. Here is a list of memorable gift ideas that will leave your beloved knowing you put some time and thought into the perfect gift:

  • Photo Printed on Metal – A common Valentine’s Day gift is a framed picture of you and your significant other.  This year why not kick it up a notch by getting the picture printed on metal. This product uses brand new technology that prints a picture onto high quality aluminum panels that are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. The best part about this is that you’re not limited to a picture.  You can also have drawings, letters, or anything else memorable printed on metal. There are even options that include a number of different photos on the same platform. A collaboration of anniversary pictures is just about as thoughtful a gift as there can be.
  • Framed Art – Does your valentine love art?  Want to make it obvious that you pay attention to and care about his or her interests?  Consider providing the gift of a print of their favorite work of art.  This practical gift of home décor provides a great way to show how much you care.  Take the extra time to choose a frame that matches their personality and upgrade their home’s style for years to come.
  • Custom Key Chain – The perfect way to show your significant other that they have the key to your heart is to surprise them with a beautiful custom keychain.  Use your creativity by choosing a favorite photo of the two of you and include a handwritten message that can be printed on the metal keychain. Your valentine will certainly think of you and your love for them every time they see it. This is a practical and thoughtful gift.

Valentine’s Day is all about spreading love, but the stress involved in finding the perfect gift can often put love on the backburner. Don’t let February 14th fill you with angst this year. Take advantage of personalized gifts and make an impression that lasts.
