Flowers are nice and all, but they don’t stand the test of time the way true love does. So this year – along with the bouquet of (fleetingly) beautiful roses – gift something with a longer life. Something that represents your love: lasting, helpful, smile-inducing and attractive. Here’s our list of top gift picks designed to make friends, family and soul mates feel loved all year long…
Why not go big and send a custom Love note to friends and family near and far? If you skipped holiday cards and didn’t quite get around to sending New Year’s cards, Valentine’s Day cards are a great way to put a little love in the mailboxes of the people you adore. Mixbook’s new Colorful Hearts card is sweet and simple. The Gold Glitter Heart card is dramatic. The Valentine Chalk card is happy and fun. And the new Made with Love card is playful and crafty. Whimsical Sentiment shows off a big, beautiful photograph with overlay text. Valentine Air Mail is designed to ensure the conveyance of affection over long distances. And Heart Collage is a minimalist and modern means of sending sweet wishes. The best part? They are easy to create – just upload your photos, print and send – and they’re 100% sugar free.
If one doesn’t have ruby-red note cards, how is one supposed to write love notes? We’re just saying…. Sometimes it’s all about giving someone the right tools. Customize Mixbook’s Script Monogram note cards in red for a gift that will keep on giving.
If you’re lovebirds who have recently feathered your nest together, Mixbook’s pink and red Love-Joy address labels personalized with your shared address make the perfect gift. Tuck them into a gift basket filled with other housewarming items (like a custom Mixbook about the big move!).
Book of Love
Create a personalized photo book that chronicles the love in your life, whether that means a flurry of romantic photos or a series of hugs, kisses and hamming it up with kids, cousins and the family Labradoodle. Mixbook’s new Mod Valentine photo book theme is perfect for love portraits of all kinds. Or express your crafty side with Mixbook’s ever-popular Krafty Valentine photo book.
Whether it’s a book about your better half or one about your mom and dad (or son and daughter!), sometimes the easiest way to express affection is by making a love list! Mixbook’s 10 Reasons Why I Love You photo book template lets you count the reasons you love anyone, and choose photographic evidence for each entry.
It’s only February! A photo calendar is still a great gift – especially if your special someone(s) need more love in their life. Customize your calendar with sweet photos, then add little love notes on random to days for the rest of the year.
What’s better than having an I-O-U in your back pocket for when you need a little extra affection? Create a custom coupon book that promises random acts of love and kindness whenever they’re needed.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Happy gifting!
