Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it!  If you are starting to think about a gift for that special someone, I have put together some ideas below with the hope that it will help get you thinking and save you some time from searching all over the web yourself!  Most of these ideas would work for an anniversary or wedding as well.

I am sharing some cute do-it-yourself gifts that I’ve come across–you can click on the link provided to find the tutorial.  They range from being simple and sweet to being a bit more involved.  I have also searched the web for some different options if you’re more of a shopper.  In particular, I had a lot of luck at two sites I just discovered:  Boldloft and Layla Grayce.  I also pointed you to Geezees Custom Canvas Art where I had a canvas made last year for our master bedroom.  I love it so much!!!  You can have absolutely anything you can imagine made–a perfect anniversary or wedding gift, too!

I hope these ideas are helpful to you!  Enjoy some time with the one you love on Valentine’s Day or any day, my friends!  :)

The Gift of Nothing
I gave my husband this book on our 10th anniversary with a note inside describing how as long as I had him, I didn’t need anything else… it’s a sweet, simple book with a cute message. We keep it in our bathroom. :) This would be a fun gift for Valentine’s Day, your anniversary, or anytime you want to tell the special someone in your life that you love them.

Wall Art

There were so many amazing pieces for your walls at Layla Grayce, another site I just discovered.  I only shared three options below, but there were so many to choose from!  Rustic artwork like this is right up my alley!!  (I am seriously obsessed with that website now!  Baby gifts, bedding, clothing, accessories for the home, even furniture!  They have everything you can imagine, and it’s all really high-quality, beautiful stuff!  How have I never heard of Layla Grayce before?!  Have you?!)

I had a canvas done by Stephanie Morris at Geezees Custom Canvas Art last year.  We had been looking for something special to hang over our bed in the master bedroom, and when I stumbled upon her website, I knew I’d found just the right thing!  Ours is similar to the first one shown:  it’s filled with dates, places, names, phrases, etc. that are meaningful to us.  The colors were chosen by me to match our room; I could honestly cry every time I look at it!!  Our entire life is summed up on that canvas!  (Sorry I am not sharing a picture of it–some things you just want to keep private for yourself.)  :)

I am going to have another one made using a picture of our four girls along with a poem I found about sisters.  If you can dream it, Stephanie can make it for you!

I chose four examples to give you some ideas down below (so hard to decide which ones to share in this post!) but just know that you can do anything you can imagine!

Custom Word Art Canvas
You choose the size, colors, font, text, etc. Anything you can imagine! We have one similar to this over our bed, and I could cry every time I see it!!
Map Art Customized with Names and Places
I love this idea! You could highlight the place you met or where you got married. Whatever is meaningful to you.

Heart Shaped Custom Canvas
Any shape, any text. You choose!

Side-by-Side Custom Canvases
You could even make these “His & Hers”.
You choose colors, font, text, size, etc. Love this idea!

Stylish Plus Size Dresses

You are My Sunshine


14 Karat White Gold Open Heart Pendant
A simple pendant that you can add to any length chain. This closely resembles the much more expensive Elsa Peretti line at Tiffany & Co.
Silver Stackable Band Set
So many stackable bands to choose from at this site… different colors & metals; some with hearts, flowers, etc.
Ed Hardy Love Kills Slowly Dog Tag Necklace
Men’s Ed Hardy Warrior Love Kills Watch
Personalized Paperweight
(other designs available)
Personalized iPhone Case

Rosanna Ikat Red & Grey Handbag

Little Giraffe Velvet Deluxe Satin Reversible Kimono
Well, shut the front door!! Little Giraffe makes robes for ADULTS?! People, have you ever felt one of their items?! Oh my gosh, complete luxury. Our girls have received their blankets as baby gifts (this blanket is my fourth daughter’s favorite!), and another daughter has a robe. These are amazing! The site had various colors, but I am showing you the pink since it’s Valentine’s Day soon. :)
Barefoot Dreams Throw Blanket
Pure luxury!


I hope you’ve had some luck here, or I’ve somehow gotten your creative juices flowing! I have a feeling the love in your life will appreciate any gift, big or small–but the best gift of all is certainly YOU, I’m sure!  (That’s what I tell my husband all the time anyhow… ha!)

Happy Valentine’s Day everybody!
