Cupid’s arrows will be making their return next month, and soon an abundance of heart-shaped candy boxes and red-and-pink-hued flower bouquets will dominate store shelves. Instead of taking the traditional gift approach this Valentine’s Day, consider bestowing your special someone with a custom gift for a more bespoke touch.
VistaPrint offers an assortment of heartwarming options, from custom cards to personalized photo books. If home decor is more your sweetie’s speed, say “I heart you” with a custom-printed pillow or fleece blanket. Or perhaps they like to journal? Open the key to their heart with a customized notebook that has their favorite quote, photo, or monogram on the cover.
Whatever you do, don’t be a last-minute Valentine. In fact, VistaPrint is holding three different promos to encourage you to shop early.

To help you get a jump start on your Valentine’s Day shopping, I’ve rounded up a few custom gift ideas that are sure to earn you all the heart eyes.
X’s and O’s CardsPass ’em a love note that really delivers on the hugs and kisses. The front side of these cards is adorned with a series of X’s and O’s in a brushstroke font that looks like it was hand-painted in watercolor. A red heart on the inside echoes the design on the front.
The 5.5” x 4” folded cards come in a standard matte finish but can be upgraded to a premium matte, glossy, or linen finish. Same goes for the envelopes, which are free if you choose the standard white option but can be upgraded to match the red brushstroke design.
You can also customize the message on the front, inside, and back side of the cards.
Wraparound Photo MugWhat better way to start the day than by sipping coffee out of a mug featuring a picture of your loved one’s mug? You can personalize the wraparound design with your favorite selfie together and a heartfelt Valentine’s message.
Pink and mauve hearts frame the photograph with black dots sprinkled about. For a festive touch, you can change the color of the handle and inside of the mug to your boo’s favorite hue. Likewise, you can change the font type, size, and color.
The mug is ceramic, can hold up to 11 ounces, and is microwaveable.
48-Piece Picture PuzzleOffer a piece of your heart—48 pieces, that is—with a customized picture puzzle. Keep it easy by uploading a simple image or make it challenging with a more detailed one.
Printed on durable, glossy-coated paperboard, the puzzle measures 8” x 10” when assembled. It comes with a free storage box with your design printed on the cover. You also have the ability to add text and shapes to further customize it.
A fun, interactive gift choice—imagine the lasting memories you’ll make one piece at a time!
