Valentine’s Day is almost here! And that means there’s no better time to treat your special someone to the perfect gift. To complement all the candy hearts, chocolate boxes and roses you’re sure to be giving and receiving, we’ve put together 10 Valentine’s Day canvas gift ideas to make the occasion even more memorable. After all, it’s the perfect time of year to show your significant other just how much you care.
1. Take a Trip Down Memory Lane
Many couples remember the setting of their first date or first kiss, but it’s unlikely that they captured the big moment on camera. Bring that special someone back to your meaningful spot for a romantic night out, and this time around be sure to snag a few pictures! Your Valentine will be thrilled to receive a surprise photo gift from your “throwback” date night.
2. Get a Little Cheesy
If there’s one time of the year where you can revel in your romance, it’s Valentine’s Day. Don’t be afraid to up the “aww” factor and take some lovey-dovey photos with your partner. They’ll make the perfect traditional yet unique Valentine’s Day gift.
3. Remember Your Best Couple’s Costume
Let’s face it: if you’ve ever donned a couple’s costume, you definitely took a few pictures. Commemorate your best prince and princess or zombie love moment with a custom canvas print.
4. Make Vacations Last a Lifetime
For those of you have been with a S.O. for some time, you have likely taken a romantic trip or two. Bring back those happy memories with a beautiful picture from your favorite vacation.
5. Catch Them Off Guard
Sometimes the best photos are the unexpected. Recruit a friend to take some candid shots while you’re out and about with your sweetheart. To make it even more of a surprise, have them capture you on the sly!
6. Let Your Pet Steal the Show
For our readers who share a pet with their partner, here’s a gift idea that incorporates your four-legged family member as well. Grab the leash and make your way to your favorite park for an outdoor photo shoot. Don’t be afraid to dress your pet in that cheesy Cupid costume gathering dust in your closet – now’s the time!
7. Show Them Your Best Moment from the Past Year
Was this the year that you moved in together? Got engaged? Tied the knot? Show your Valentine how much you treasure that moment by displaying it on canvas. Canvas prints would also make a great gift or announcement for parents and other loved ones!
8. Don’t Be Afraid to Get Creative
There are so many unique ways to convey your love through photos. Get inspired and make your photo memorable by trying different light techniques, silhouettes, fun props, and colorful backdrops. Every couple is different – keep your personal style in mind, and create an image that reflects your mutual values.
9. Show Them a Symbol of Your Love
You don’t have to actually be in the photo to create a meaningful canvas! If the two of you share a certain hobby or pastime, highlight that on your walls. Capture the dish you made in that couple’s cooking class, a sport you both love, or some other activity that you share together.
10. Be Your Own Valentine
Not everyone has a Valentine, and that’s nothing to be ashamed of! Celebrate the single life by putting your best selfie on canvas. Better yet, include your best friends to share the love.
With these ideas in mind, we hope that you will have a fun-filled, romantic holiday that brings many new memories and plenty of photo opportunities. Once you’ve decided on the perfect picture, create high-quality canvas prints and get ready to give the best Valentine’s Day gift yet!
