Hi guys, so today I’m going to share some Valentine’s Day gift ideas with you. These gift ideas come from some of my favorite presents that Daniel and I have given to each other throughout the years, and most of them will work for either a girl or a guy!
If you’ve been to my blog before, you know that I’ve mentioned that puzzles have long been a theme in our relationship. So I’m sure you can imagine that this has influenced a lot of the gifts we’ve given each other!
One year I had the idea to get Daniel a puzzle piece necklace. I personally think jewelry for a guy is an unexpected gift, which is the kind of gift I strive for. Unique, personal, and meaningful is my mantra when searching for a gift (especially for Daniel).
After searching and searching, I finally turned my attention to Etsy and found the perfect puzzle piece necklace. This necklace was by far the most masculine looking one I found. The seller was super nice, and the necklace came quickly and looked just as pictured. Daniel loved it, and I love it whenever he wears it! It also gave Daniel the idea to have a friend of his make me a matching puzzle necklace in silver!
Staying with the puzzle theme, Daniel gave me this amazingly romantic and sentimental gift (originally for our 1st year anniversary)! Yes, that’s right, he made a puzzle for me. I was so surprised and in love with this gift, not only when I first got it but every time we put it together.
Another gift that keeps on giving is… a fondue pot! Daniel also got me this during our first year together. It was particularly sentimental to us because of an amazing fondue dinner during our first trip together, but this would make a fabulous gift for anyone.
He was also very clever and made it a two-in-one gift by including the ingredients for chocolate fondue! We exchanged gifts after dinner and were able to try out the fondue pot that night! Yes, I know, I’m an incredibly lucky girl.
Since then, we’ve elevated countless stay at home date nights and celebrated special occasions with a fondue dinner (as you can see below). It’s amazing how it can invoke so many wonderful memories every time we use it!
I don’t know about you, but we have numerous songs that have become very meaningful to our relationship and signified different stages of it. For that reason, another gift I love giving are records. This originally stemmed from Daniel having a beautiful record player, but no records! Also, I’m not sure why, but I’ve always found vinyl to be more romantic than a CD.
Of course, if your significant other doesn’t have a record player, Valentine’s Day would be a great excuse to get one! I personally think this would be an awesome gift for a guy, and a more unique and unexpected gift as well!
This is the one Daniel has, which doesn’t appear to be sold new anymore, but I love the look and features!
Another favorite gift that Daniel gave me was a picnic basket!
Talk about a sweet gift! Would you not melt after unwrapping this? We’ve used it SO many times during the summer months, and it makes me smile every single time.
And last but certainly not least, Daniel started making awesome paintings last year, and he made this WALL-E and Eva pair for me for Valentine’s Day!
As you can see, I was pretty happy! You can visit his Etsy page to get these adorable paintings for your significant other. I’m sure any Pixar-loving girl (such as myself) would LOVE to have these hanging on her wall!
There you have it, a few unique and meaningful Valentine’s Day gift ideas for your guy or girl!
I hope you all have a very special Day of Love!
