4 Personalized Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

February 03, 2015

I love holidays, and Valentine’s Day is no exception!

However, with Valentine’s Day being so close to Christmas, it is sometimes hard to think of buying more gifts for yet another holiday. So this year, why not try making a personalized gift box? It’s simple, lends itself to creativity, and will show the recipient how much you care.


All you need is a box (photo storage boxes come in fun prints and multiple sizes), a card, and special goodies to make your gift complete. Most of these gift ideas can be found for a low cost — I love the Dollar Spot at Target for gifts under $5. Be sure to check out bargain spots in your other favorite stores!

Below I’ve made a list of sample boxes to give you some ideas for that perfect gift.

for a significant other

for a teenager

for a friend

At home spa supplies (exfoliating soaps, nail files, pumice stones, lotions)
Favorite lunch spot gift card
Journals and pens
Free baby-sitting coupon

I hope this list has inspired you to make a personalized gift for someone you love this year!
