Looking for a gift for Valentine’s Day? It’s coming up more quickly than you realize. If you’re looking for unique gift ideas for your valentine, then you’ll need to think ahead, even out of the box. Why not give something that is both unique and useful this year? Rather than a gift that they might wear or use every once in a while, why not consider a gift that is more practical, that they can really use in their daily life? You’d be surprised at how many options there are in this niche. Here are some ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts that are truly useful AND unique that will impress your valentine.
Everyone can use a pocket knife. It can come in handy in so many situations, just for cutting things, like string, rope and for opening packages. With the plethora of online shopping happening these days, it’s no surprise we all need something to help open those many packages. When we give electronic or accessory gifts, they often come in a hard plastic bubble, which can be difficult to open. A pocket knife will certainly come in handy for opening this type of package. This is why a personalized pocket knife can make an ideal gift for your male valentine, or even your female valentine. A personalized pocket knife can be engraved with their name right on the handle. This is a perfectly useful and unique gift for your valentine that they will find useful for many years.
In the same niche, we have a personalized multi-tool. This is similar to a pocket knife, but has many other tools on it, even things like scissors, a file, screwdrivers and more. A multi-tool always includes a knife blade as well, sometimes in several sizes, so it’s really a personalized pocket knife taken to the next level. A multi-tool can be engraved on it’s handles as well, making it perfectly unique for your valentine, and has so many tools that they’ll surely use for many years to come.
Personalized Phone Case
While there are low-cost options for phones these days, if you want the latest phone models, then you need to pay a hefty price. The latest iPhone often costs upwards of $1000. When you make an investment like this, you definitely want a phone case to protect it. Here’s where you come in. Get them a personalized phone case which is printed with a photo of something important or meaningful to them. It can be a photo of you two together, or even something like a place, landscape, nature, animals or something else that they love. When choosing a photo for the phone, make sure to consider that the phone will be seen by many people, not just your valentine, so nothing too personal should be used. Think about choosing a photo they would be proud to display to other people and carry around with them at all times. This gift is unique because of the photo, but also perfectly useful since it can help extend the life of their phone.
Drinkware is always a useful gift and there are many options in this area, all of which can be personalized, printed or engraved in some way. First, we have a glass beer stein. This is an ideal gift for the beer lover. It can be etched with their name on the side. Next, we have shot glasses. You can have the shot glasses etched with their name or even something fun like “Joe’s Bar”. For the coffee lover, consider a personalized coffee mug or travel mug. Both are incredibly useful and can be made unique with printing on the side of their name or even a logo. There are also wine glasses that can be etched with their name, perfect if they enjoy wine. Lastly, consider a flask. This is simply a container shaped for placing in your pocket or purse. It’s used to hold hard liquor most typically. There are many styles to choose from. Some even include a set of small shot glasses and a case. All flasks and/or their case can be engraved with their name or initials.
Personalized Compact Mirror
For your female valentine, she can certainly make use of a new compact mirror. Every woman carries one around in their purse to check their makeup every so often. Make this gift unique with engraving of her name on the top in a fancy font. This is a gift that she will use every single day.
Personalized Jewelry Box
Useful to protect her jewelry, consider giving a jewelry box. There are many style choices in this area, but for Valentine’s Day, you’ll want to go with the classic heart shaped jewelry box. It can be engraved on the inside or the outside. Engrave her initials on the outside, then on the inside include some meaningful message of love from you. She’ll think of you every time she opens it!
For your valentine who enjoys cigars, there’s a number of gifts that can be used to protect their precious cigars. Consider a cigar humidor. A cigar humidor allows them to store their cigars safely and protect them from oxidation, keeping them fresh. A cigar humidor can be personalized with their name on the top. Another option for cigar lovers is a cigar case or holder. This is a stainless-steel device shaped perfectly to hold your cigar while in your pocket while protecting it and keeping it fresh. A cigar holder can be engraved with their name as well.
For the wine enthusiast, there are many gift options. From wine cases and holders to corkscrews to foil cutters to wine stoppers. All can be engraved with their name. Or get them a set of wine accessories which includes all of these together in a box.
For the valentine who enjoys backyard grilling, consider giving them a set of barbecue tools. These include a spatula, tongs and a fork. Not only can you have the handles of each tool engraved with their name, but also the box it comes in.
