Are you completely stuck for Valentine’s Day inspiration? These personalized and thoughtful engraved gifts will not only put a smile on your lover’s face, but they won’t break the bank either. Everybody wins!


guitar pick

Personalized guitar pick and necklace, $35 plus shipping, HotaruJewelry via Etsy

It doesn’t matter if technically your valentine is a guitar player or not; as long as they’ve got music coursing through their veins, they’ll appreciate the thought behind this gift. You can squeeze a message of love or your partner’s initials on one side, and it doesn’t need to find use actually strumming guitar chords, as a personalized guitar pick can be tucked away in a wallet or purse as a pocket charm, or you can thread it through a length of leather and wear it as a necklace too.


pearl necklace

Hand-stamped pearl necklace, $18 plus shipping, DistinctlyIvy via Etsy

You can never go wrong with the gift of pearls, and this hand-stamped necklace offers a modern and fresh take on the classic jewellery piece. You can personalize the silver disc for your valentine with a message, names, initials or dates, and each gift comes with a matching necklace. Class and style, and for a fraction of the price of a string of pearls.


Bullet key ring

Bullet key ring, $18 plus shipping, CandTCustomLures via Etsy

The perfect gift for the hunter or fisherman in your life, this handcrafted key ring is made out of a recycled bullet casing that has been cleaned and tumbled. Etsy artisan CandTCustomLures explains, “This gun bullet has been made by using a typical used casing, but adding a copper piece attached with two steel pins. It has been personalized with the word ‘HUNT.’ Another idea is to personalize with a special date. Each creation is one of a kind and may vary from the pictures, some due to the bullet used to create the key ring.”


Pocket knife

Butterfly bookmark

Butterfly bookmark, $8 plus engraving and shipping,

While many readers like to flick through the pages of the latest fiction masterpiece on their iPad or Kindle, there are plenty of us who still enjoy reading paper books! For us, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as feeling a book’s pages between our fingers as the story progresses. It does leave us with one conundrum, though: How do we mark our spot without dog-earring the page? Enter this beautiful bejewelled butterfly bookmark. It’ll set you back just $8 (a few dollars more for personalized engraving), but it makes for a thoughtful and sweet Valentine’s Day gift.
