Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that can be difficult for gift giving. You want to give your special valentine something meaningful, but not cheesy; something useful, but not too practical. A way to strike that perfect balance is to give a monogrammed gift. It can either be the initials of the recipient or a symbol that means something special to the both of you. Regardless, a monogrammed gift says you had them in your heart when gift shopping. Here are some of the top monogrammed gift ideas for Valentine’s Day.
Every time they slip under the covers, they’ll be reminded of you with your gift of monogrammed bedding. It can be something as simple as a throw blanket or as decadent as a full set of Supima® flannel sheets (made with the top 3% of all cotton grown and produced in the United States). When the top sheet is folded down, your personalization will be readable from the end of the bed. Likewise, pillowcases can be monogrammed too, so you can give them something personalized to grant them sweet dreams.
Something that evokes a feeling of warmth and comfort is always a great gift. Monogrammed robes are great for doing just that. Your valentine will love wearing their soft robe whether snuggled in bed or lounging around the house. Make sure it’s not just any plain robe, though. If you’re going to monogram a robe with your loved one’s initials, you want to make sure they’re special. The monogrammed robe should also look stylish and make your valentine look forward to putting it on every night. The robe should feel comfortable both in and out of bed—not to warm, and not too cold. You might want to get one for yourself, too!
Staying on the theme of comfort, complete the sheet and PJs package with a pair of slippers, monogrammed or otherwise. You’d be amazed at how many people don’t own a proper pair of slippers, walking around on cold floors in old socks instead. Or they struggle to put on a proper pair of shoes whenever they need to get the mail or take the garbage out. Having a pair of slippers at the ready for such occasions is a special treat. Monogramming them makes them even more special.
Does your valentine have plans for a beach getaway in their future? Beach weather is coming up, after all. A personalized beach towel can make it so much easier to identify where home base is on the beach when coming back from a swim in the ocean. Choose from letters, initials, text, or a selection of custom embroidery designs and symbols. Better yet, combine the two for an extra personalized gift they’ll be proud to wrap themselves in or spread out on the sand while on vacation.
Thanks to technology, you can get practically anything monogrammed these days. One of the top things that may come to mind is jewelry. Whether it’s a necklace, bracelet, watch, ring, or charm, the options are endless. It doesn’t just have to be for a romantic valentine, either. It can be for a close friend who’d appreciate a simple charm with the first letter of their name on it. Or it can be a gift for yourself, with an initial of one of your kids or a special pet. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box when gifting jewelry—it’s not just for romantic relationships. Everyone deserves a special piece of jewelry.
You can never have too many bags. After all, there are different seasons, different outfits, and different purposes for which you might need them. Bag and purse aficionados will always appreciate a new bag, whether a backpack, tote bag, wristlet, purse, tech bag, or beach bag. Aside from buying one in a fun design, adding some personalization can make for a great gift. It can also make it easier to identify, like when struggling to find a lunch bag in the communal office refrigerator. When in doubt, go the bag route.
Whether you are celebrating your very first Valentine’s Day together, or you’ve been through years of them, you don’t want to leave your valentine hanging when everyone else is receiving gifts. Make your gift practical yet unique with any of the personalized gifts mentioned here, and they’ll love you for it. Don’t forget to show yourself some love either—Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to treat yourself!
