Best of Etsy: Valentines Day Edition

So we thought we would kick things off with a little Valentines Day inspiration! We scoured the pages of ETSY to find the most unique and thoughtful gifts for your love this year! While these sweet gifts are perfect for Valentines Day, they are also perfect gifts for your wedding day! Almost all of them can be personalized, which we think makes them even more special! Here are our favorites:

  1. Etta James At Last Framed Typography Art by LyricsAndQuotes - Imagine if this is "your song" or better yet - the first dance song from your wedding! What an awesome keepsake - and they do feature other songs in their Etsy Store!
  2. Custom Wooden Tree with Birds & Personalized Heart by urastarhouse - Just like the listing says; haven't you always wanted your sweetie to carve your initials into a tree? You can take matters into your own hands with this one!
  3. I Love That You're Going to Be My Husband Origami Greeting by peacecranegreetings - So this little number gets shipped directly to your husband-to-be (they do sell other greetings for other recipients) and when he takes out the symbolic little crane, he sees the words on the rice paper in the bottom of the box. Imagine sending one to your groom on your wedding day while you can't see each other - just make sure the photographer is around to catch his reaction, you might get a really great photo op!
  4. Personalized Copper Guitar Pick by jcjewelrydesign - Another double-duty gift. Perfect for Valentines Day and also perfect as a wedding day gift for your groom. It can be really difficult to find a gift for him that is sentimental but masculine at the same time. We definitely think this gift fits the bill!
  5. Cross My Heart Personalized Crossword Print by nelladesigns - A great keepsake to display your wedding date, the day you met, or any other date that the two of you hold close to your hearts. They have several other designs, too!
  6. Custom Portrait Illustration by EmmieBean - You have got to see this one to believe it. Basically, you send them a photograph and they create an illustration out of it that you can frame and keep. Better yet - have a design created and use it for your Save the Dates... or have one made from a wedding picture and use it for your thank-you notes!
  7. Printable Love Notes Valentine Set by threewheelsdesign - This seller makes unique and modern Valentines that you can print at home and send to all of your loves this year. Definitely a great option if Spongebob or Transformers Valentines aren't your cup of tea.
  8. Mod Love Story Personalized Print by ModMemento - Another double duty gift that is perfect for Valentines Day or your wedding day. We especially love the "to be continued..." at the bottom.
  9. Personalized Wedding Promise Artwork by gracehesterdesigns - Similar to the last item, except this one features your wedding vows with your names in the middle. For those of you that write your own vows - can you imagine what a sentimental keepsake this would be?
We wanted to share these ideas sooner rather than later so that if you find yourself inspired by any of these ideas, you still have time to order, or DIY something similar if you're feeling ambitious! Happy February, readers!
