Find out how to get the best gifts to score you major brownie points with your lover, friends or family. After all, why should celebrating Valentine’s Day only be about couples?

So, to help you out, we’ve curated our pick of the most unique personalised Valentine’s Day gifts. That way, you can share the love and show just how much you care.

Why Choose Personalised Valentine’s Day Presents?

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, anyone can pop in to the nearest store and pick up a box of chocolates or a bottle of wine. But this day, of all days, is supposed to be about showing your loved ones how much you care.

Personalised Valentine’s Day gift ideas are becoming more and more popular because taking the time to create something custom can really show your loved ones how much you care. They show your loved ones that you have taken the extra time to understand what they want and create something unique.

Not only that but they are far more memorable than a quick last-minute gift bought on the way to a date or catch up! These personalised V-day gifts are pieces that your friends, lover, or family will treasure forever.

Valentine’s Day Gifts For Her

1. Personalised wall art

Personalised wall art can make a lovely gift that will remind the special lady in your life of you every time she sees it. Wall art can instantly transform a space, turning boring bare walls into interesting displays of art.

We’ve got a huge array of wall art options, but some of our top personalised Valentine’s Day gifts are:

  • A piece of metal wall art depicting a beautiful landscape. Metal wall artworks well with highly detailed images. The aluminium picks up all the fine detail in photographs, so your print will be dripping in saturated colour, displaying in high definition scenes such as snow-capped mountains, the fine sand on pure white beaches, or the crisp early morning sun shining on rolling green hills. Choose one of your own images or browse from our vast selection; we have millions of images to choose from!
  • A heart-shaped acrylic print. This is the perfect unique gift for your significant other. Using acrylic prints, you can immortalise your photographs. Our hard-wearing, durable acrylic will last for decades, with no wear and tear, and can be easily dusted or wiped clean with a wet cloth. The shape is perfect for couple photos and wedding photos.
  • A photo collage with a selection of your favourite photos. Are you giving a gift to your long-time partner, friend or family member? If you have a large collection of images that you can piece together as a cohesive artwork, photo collages are a great gift option.
  • Canvas prints can make a fantastic thoughtful gift and the best part is, they are so affordable! Our high-quality, wrapped canvas prints come fully-ready to hang. All you need to do is select your size and shape, upload your favourite image and place your order. Choose a meaningful image of you and your loved one. You could even select a design from our enormous catalogue of images according to what your Valentine likes.

6. A wall display

For the ultimate in personalised Valentine’s Day gifts, a large-scale wall display, split canvas print or gallery wall are fantastic options for your loved ones. Wall displays usually consist of two or more separate prints which combine to create one overall piece. A wall display should be impactful, and make a lasting impression in the home.

Split canvases, on the other hand, simply consist of one impactful image split into separate canvases which are styled next to each other on your walls to create a single artwork.

The best wall displays should tell a story and work as a cohesive piece. For the best wall displays and split canvases, use our tips below:

  • Use images from the same series, ideally taken at the same time, for example, wedding photos, family photos or photos of loved pets
  • Use images which are edited in a similar way. For instance, don’t mix highly-saturated images with images that have dreamy, pastel hues, and avoid combining black and white images with coloured images
  • Try to stick to a cohesive theme, for instance, wedding images, images of love or a place, like the beach or a special holiday
  • When creating a split canvas, be sure to check where the image splits. Ideally, you don’t want to split the image in the middle of a person’s face, or cut off an arm!
