Thoughtful Valentine's Day gifts

Alexis Jones '22

Finding a “perfect” gift can be stressful. With the “holiday of love” approaching stores are filled with festive merchandise ready to be gifted to loved ones. There truly is no better way to express love than giving a thoughtful gift that comes from the heart.

The RamPage is exciting to provide you with gift ideas to spoil a special someone or even a best friend so that you can go beyond the classic chocolates, flowers, jewelry, and stuffed animals. While those are still welcome gifts, here is a list to elevate the gift-giving game.

  1. A custom keychain This gift is great for any driver. Every time the recipient grabs their keys, they are reminded of the giver. A custom keychain can have a cute saying such as “I Love You,” “Drive Safe,” or an anniversary date. A keychain could also be a matching funny best friend keychain that both people can have. Amazon, Etsy, Snap fish, or Shutterfly offer a variety of options

  2. A photo book A photo book that displays photos and mementos illustrates a relationship. Many websites can help make a high-quality photobook with ease including Snap fish or Shutterfly. Or crafty people can head to any craft store, grab supplies, gather photos, and make a hand-crafted book.

  3. A box of favorites This is another simple idea that can be maximized to show knowledge of the recipient. When shopping for this gift, grab all their favorites: snacks, candy, a stuffed animal, blanket, cologne/perfume and wrap it in their favorite color. It can be as simple or as extravagant as the mind can be. Happy gifting Rams!
