Personalized Valentine’s Day Gifts for Your Special Someone

Each year it seems there is a special feeling in the air come the first day of February. For some, it could be the promise that the colder weather may soon come to a close, or a looming spring break trip just weeks away. But for many, it’s the warmness of the upcoming holiday: Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day has been celebrated for centuries. It is recorded that Americans have been sending one another Valentine’s Day cards since as early as the 18th century – a tradition that has withstood the ages and is still practiced today! A tradition this long standing has obviously resulted in A LOT of cards. In fact, in 2017 alone the National Retail Federation estimated that 190 million cards would be exchanged amongst couples. While there is something to be said about holding traditions, we believe that this year it’s time for a change.

When it comes to gift giving, what’s most important is the amount of thought one puts in to the gift. Luckily, Appleton Trophy makes Valentine’s Day gift giving easy for you! Nothing says “those three little words” like a custom made, personalized gift. You may be surprised to know that Appleton sells much more than, well, trophies. In fact, our product portfolio spans across over 30 categories. To narrow down your search, we have picked out our top picks for the perfect, personalized Valentine’s Day gift for your special someone.

Both thoughtful and practical, your special someone will never be left to search for a “hard to find” recipe card or tattered sheet of paper again. The gift that keeps on giving, a handy recipe also means the increased likelihood of more home cooked meals and less take out. Now that’s something we all can celebrate!
