Valentine’s Day is approaching, and yet again, you’re scrambling to find the right present for your loved one: something that says, “I love and appreciate you.”
But who wants to buy (or receive!) another box of chocolates?
You want something different, not the same old cliché gifts. When you’re trying to show your deepest affection and gratitude for someone, candy hearts just won’t cut it.
If you’re looking for a unique Valentine’s Day gift idea this year, you’re in the right place. Let’s look at some thoughtful, one-of-a-kind presents for that special someone in your life.
Romantic Gifts for Your Significant Other
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to tell your spouse or partner how much they mean to you. Forget about the usual generic gift ideas that get recycled every year. Why not go for a personalized keepsake…and something that will last?
If you’d like to give a truly memorable present, a beautiful art glass piece is the way to go.
Glass pieces are works of art hand-crafted from blown glass in vibrant, beautiful colors. Since these sculptures sit on a base, they can be personalized with a special message. Unlike a box of chocolates, a glass sculpture stands the test of time and displays your expression of love for years to come. What better way to show the depth of your passion than with a work of art?
Here are a few heart shaped gift ideas that will truly “wow” your partner:
Our Whole Hearted Glass Art Award [G1610] beautifully expresses the unity of your love for one another. Its single looping piece of deep scarlet glass forms the outline of a heart, creating the feeling of two parts intertwining together as one.
Our simple Glass Heart Award [AGS50] is another stunning piece that makes a clear statement about your relationship. This handmade heart has a clean, modern shape, perfect for the no-frills personality in your life.
Suppose you’d like to share more words expressing your adoration for your partner. In that case, our Crystal Heart [CRY229] piece is what you need. With this eye-catching crystal award, you can give the person “your heart” with your words of love forever preserved on it!
Not sure how to customize these items? Never fear. Here are some creative ideas for making these mementos personal to your relationship with your loved one:
- Engrave your names and a particular date on your gift (the day you met, your first date, the day you married, etc.).
- Put a quote from a meaningful song, poem, or movie on the piece. It can be funny or serious! Only you and your partner will share its personal significance.
- Inscribe a line from your wedding vows, or write a statement about what your relationship has meant to you.
- Laser engrave a fun title on the piece, and dub your loved one “Sweetheart of the Year” or “Cupid’s Choice.” The possibilities are endless!
Unique Gifts for the Extraordinary People in Your Life
While we often think of Valentine’s Day as a day devoted to romantic love interests, it’s also a great time to acknowledge all kinds of meaningful relationships. Grandparents, friends, family, and even co-workers, schoolmates, or exceptional employees deserve a token of your appreciation. Here at Hit Trophy, we’ve got some unforgettable gift ideas for you, no matter the person or situation.
“Close friends are truly life’s treasures.” Vincent Van Gogh expressed how precious good friends are, and such a friend deserves to be recognized.
Our Together Art Glass award [AGS16] expresses your thankfulness for a close confidant, supportive partner, or lifetime friend. This singular piece of clear, blue, and gold-colored glass is artistically crafted to look like two people holding hands. Even the bodies create a heart shape in this uniquely designed figure.
To really set this gift apart, consider engraving a special title on its base. Give it as a “Best Friends Forever” trophy, or personalize this piece as a “Heartfelt Companion” award for close friends.
Gifts for Family Members
Do you have a close relative who has supported you through thick and thin? Perhaps you’ve been blessed with a helpful mentor in your life. Valentine’s Day is a great occasion to acknowledge their impact on you and others, whether it’s a cousin, grandparent, distant relative, or just someone who’s become like family to you.
Our Pink Heart Art Glass Award [AGS64] makes a lovely keepsake for a cherished person. A single strand of glass outlines a delicate pink heart, showing your admiration and affection.
For an extra special touch, present this piece as a trophy by personalizing it with a name and title. Giving a family member a “Family Love Ambassador” trophy or a “Love Across Generations” award would be a neat and memorable way to recognize someone you treasure and appreciate.
Gifts for Caring Co-workers or Employees
Don’t forget…you can use Valentine’s Day to recognize caring co-workers or employees!
If you work with someone who pours his or her heart and soul into helping others, why not reward their compassion? Any one of the pieces we’ve shared here would make a wonderful present to encourage such a person in your organization.
You can personalize these gifts in many different ways:
- Best Customer Care
- Patient Care Award
- [ ___ ] Years of Compassion and Caring
- #1 in Compassion
- Caring Co-worker of the Year Award
- Emotional Intelligence Award
A person who shows sincere compassion for their co-workers and has a deep desire to serve their clients, patients, or anyone in need deserves recognition for their selfless service and care. Surprise them with an award for their character and help them feel appreciated with a personalized piece.
