In the United States, Valentine’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May. Though Valentine’s Day gift guides suggest giving handmade items such as hand-stamped aprons, macaroni necklaces, and “world’s best mom” t-shirts, those gifts are likely to be tossed into a closet the very next day. If you want mom to enjoy her Valentine’s Day gift, after the celebration is over, get her a personalized gift card. The card will be every bit as personal as a thumbprint butterfly on a clay pot, but will be significantly more useful. Need some clever ways to make your personalized gift cards more personal?
Here’s how to give Valentine’s Day gift cards:
- Beary Much. Take a photo of teddy bear, a photo of you hugging a teddy bear or a photo of the kids snuggled up with a favorite teddy bear. Upload the picture to make your own teddy bear gift card and write the words, “Love U beary much” on the card. (Or “like U beary much” or “You are beary nice.”) You can also tie the teddy bear gift card to a real teddy bear so your Valentine has something to snuggle after the Valentine gift card is used.
- Valentine Bouquet. Rather than spend money on an expensive bouquet, buy an economical bunch of flowers or a potted flower and use the money you saved to buy a Valentine’s Day gift card to go with it. Upload a photo of you and your Valentine to make a personalized gift card. Write an appropriate expression on the gift card (“Love you,” “Be mine” “Be my Valentine.”) Tie a ribbon around the vase and tuck the Valentine gift card inside or put the gift card into the flower stick that comes from the florist.
- Stuck on You. For a more practical Valentine gift, order a custom Mastercard gift card and deliver it with something sticky—gum, taffy, super glue, crafter’s glue, wood glue—any item appropriate for your Valentine’s hobbies and interests. Upload a photo of the two of you hugging and write, “Stuck on you” on the card’s embossed message line.
If you don’t have a Valentine photo of your own, select a Valentine gift card design from our predesigned gallery. The gallery is full of gift cards created by our predesigned gallery.

Valentine’s Day Gift Tips
“To be sure Valentine knows you put extra love into the gift card, select a personal photo and include a custom message.”
A generic plastic gift card might not get you a second date. But a photo of the day you first met plus embossing the words “Love at First Sight” onto the card, could be the beginning of a long-lasting relationship.
