Gift the Memories This Valentine’s Day
For me, Valentine’s Day is about celebrating connection with the loved ones in your life. Gift the memories this Valentine’s Day and shine a spotlight on the moments that make a life together.
7 Ways to Share Memories
1. Personalized Wine Boxes
Is there a wine that you shared on your first date? When you got engaged? At your wedding or on a trip to Napa? Whatever the occasion, gift your loved one that special wine inside one of these personalized laser engraved wooden wine boxes. You can have the top and all sides customized with messages, poems and even images.
And this gift isn’t limited to romantic loves, it would also be a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift for friends, parents, siblings or anyone special in your life with whom you want to share a great bottle of wine and a special message of love and memories.

3. A Shadow Box
A shadow box is an amazing way to literally show someone how much you’ve cherished your relationship by gifting them the mementos that you’ve saved over the years. Whether it’s ticket stubs, love notes, wine corks or bottle caps, an engraved shadow box is a stylish way to present a ‘box of memories’.

5. A Mixtape
As a child of the ’80s, love + a mixtape will forever be tied together for me. I wouldn’t blow your mind by suggesting that you pull out the boombox and work the play/record buttons simultaneously. Instead, combine the ease of a USB storage device with the nostalgia and personalization of a handwritten cassette case.

Now, the actual storage of the music may be easier with a USB device, but the perfect mixtape is still a labor of love and skill. If you have missed out on the art form that is a mixtape, here’s a little help: The Art of the Mix: 15 Foolproof Rules for Creating the Perfect Mixtape
