3 Things to Keep in Mind to Nail Valentine’s Gift Giving

Valentine’s day is approaching

We’ve seen hundreds of parents cry over after our books, not to mention the thousands of other emotional reactions, so we’ve decided to share some ingredients of the secret sauce of what we’ve learned about great gifts.  So without further ado, here are 3 simple things to keep in mind when choosing a gift for your significant other.

1.      Keep it personal.

No one knows how to do that better than you. Sometimes it’s an everyday item that has a background story you share that will show them that you pay attention, like replacing a chipped off coffee mug you know is their favorite with an identical twin. Other times it’s writing a love letter, or well – sharing your love in a personalized book’s dedication.

2.      Make it about what they love

We’re not just gonna say “kids” here. It could also be an accessory for a hobby they love. But if you know family is the ultimate value for them, get something they can enjoy together.

3.      Invest in the gift

No, that doesn’t mean you have to spend thousands of dollars on it or a whole year making it. But do avoid a gift that says “I got this last minute”. It’s the thought that counts might be a cliche, but it’s still very true – that doesn’t mean any gas-station-gift will get have overwhelmed by emotions because you remembered it’s Valentine’s Day. The “thought that counts” is actually how much heart you put into the gift.

It’s as simple as that. If you think it’s mission: impossible to tick these boxes, here is a personalizedbook that taught us all that:
