Valentine’s Day is the best time to show your loved one how much you appreciate them.
Stores sell all kinds of themed flowers and chocolate in heart-shaped boxes. That’s the kind of traditional gift we expect from our partners. But why does Valentine’s Day have to be so generic and well… boring? We all love gifts that are personalized to our tastes and no one does it better than the sellers on Etsy. So, I took the liberty of gathering up 10 of my favorite creative Valentine’s Day gifts from the site:
PaprikaPaperie created a very cute Scratch-Off Valentine Card where you can write in your own 10 things you love about your partner. The card comes with the ten spaces blank for you to fill it in and scratch-off stickers to apply over it. For only $6, it’s a gift to make anyone smile. Buy it here.
Are you in a long-distance relationship? If so, these personalized keychains by thelightandthedark1 would be a sweet and heartfelt gift. Each keychain is shaped as the state of your choice, includes your initials, and a dotted line that connects the two. It costs $27.99 for the set of two.
