Valentine’s day is creeping up quickly and whether you fully embrace the official day of romance and its cheesy clichés or you’d prefer to turn a blind eye and treat it like any other day, there’s no getting away from the fact it’s a great excuse to spoil and get spoilt.

You can ignore the traditional over-sized teddy bears, singing quartets and boxes of chocolates and get a gift that will actually mean something to your other half. And what will be better appreciated that something that is personalised for them?

You can get most things personalised nowadays, but it’s important you think of something that will actually love, cherish and use, not stash away in a cupboard never to be seen again. Here are our top personalised valentine’s day gifts…


1) A print from My Icon Story

We’re not here to blow our own trumpet, but we really do have the perfect personalised Valentine’s Day gifts range your other half will love. You could create a personalised print with the places that mean the most to you both – such as where you had your first date, or where you got engaged, or you can select from our specially curated Valentine’s Day gift range.

This collection features our Highly Commended Gift of the Year gift –  Mr Men & Little Miss Love Couples! – Simply choose an iconic character for you and your partner. Who’s who in your relationship?

2) Personalised Jewellery

Another meaningful personalised gift this Valentine’s is jewellery. You could either buy them something new, or get something they already have engraved with something that means a lot to you both. You could do a memorable date, place or message and then gift wrap it and give it to them on Valentine’s day. Check out some beautiful pieces by Posh Totty Designs.


3) Personalised Alcohol

Personalised Princess Prosecco bottle

A bottle of bubbly or beer is a gift that will always go down well, and having a personalised label takes it up that extra notch! There are many places you can find that offer personalised bottles of alcohol – you could even share it together over a romantic dinner! It’s a gift that’s not too cheesy but can also be saved and looks great on the shelf or a drinks trolley. One of our tired and tested bottles is from Princess Prosecco!

4) Personalised calendar

Personalised Calendar

It’s still the beginning of the year and if your other half is yet to get a calendar, why not combine it with a personalised valentine’s day gift? You can get a custom calendar filled with photos throughout your relationship – you could even correspond the months with the time your photos were taken! It’s easy to make and is great to reminisce on memories of times gone by. 

5) Personalised Jewellery Box

Last but not least in our list of top personalised valentine’s day gifts is a personalised jewellery box (you can also do this for men’s watch boxes – like this one featured above by Sole Smith.) Whether they already have a box that you want to personalise, or you want to purchase one and get it done at the time, it’s the perfect gift. Practical yet thoughtful, it will last the test of time and is guaranteed to be loved year after year!

These are just some of our top personalised Valentine’s Day gift ideas, be sure to check out our full range here!
