Even though Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, it’s not too late (yet) to order some really special last-minute custom photo gifts for your special someone. Or hey, even make them yourself. Photo gifts are some of our favorites to give because they’re just so, well, personal. (And be sure to check out our post on Instagram photo gifts.) Order some of these gift ideas–quickly!–or just use them for DIY inspiration. They’re the kinds of gifts you can whip up last minute, and it will look like you’ve been planning them for weeks.
The Minted custom photo heart poster featuring a dozen or so of your favorite pictures is a modern way to be sweet this Valentine’s Day. And they last longer than roses. Posters start at $29.00. (Order by 2/9.)
Photo necklaces make amazing keepsakes, and if you want something incredibly special, check out the massive locket collection from MRK Style. They go all the way up to nearly $20,000 for gold and diamonds, but we’ll settle for this Black Onyx and silver locket which is still a major piece at $935.This is the good stuff–not the $15 pieces you see on Etsy. (Expediting shipping will get you same-day shipping and ships way faster if you’re on the East Coast.)
There are so many custom photo iPhone cases from Tiny Prints but this template is perfect for Valentine’s Day. You can change the color of the strips, write anything you want in the text box, and, of course, use your own photo. Cases start at $39.95. (Order as late as 2/11 if you use Super Rush shipping.)
This Instagram pic from Cocoagraph printed onto 72% Belgian dark chocolate has me screaming, “Yes, yes, yes!” a la Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally. Also available in white and milk chocolate. Prices start at $14. (Order by 2/9.)
Paper Culture does a beautiful job with everything we’ve seen from them, and I especially like that they plant a tree for every purchase. This set of 12 custom photo coasters are super customizable, and can be extremely cute–or of course really cheesy depending on the photo. Choose well, grasshopper. $24.99 each with 15% off if you sign up for their newsletter. (Orders generally take 4 days, but overnight and 2-day delivery is available)
Turn that cheap bottle of wine into something fancy with these custom beer and wine labels from another favorite shop, Pinhole Press. $9.99 and up. You’ll need to order soon and pay rush shipping on these.
For jewelry that’s lovely but more affordable, check out this pretty photo bracelet from Little Gem Girl on Etsy. Just $24, but makes for a really special Valentine’s gift. Hint: black and white is a nice touch. (Order by 2/9.)
Once you’ve got your gift all ready to go, wrap it in a huge, oversized photo. I’d use a big red ribbon for Valentine’s to finish it off.
