There’s no shortage of “Valentine’s Day gift ideas” online. But with the onset of remote work and the harsh reality of lockdowns, romantic trips and dining out may not be feasible gift ideas anymore. Plus, many of us started new careers and explored the new normal of entrepreneurship. A refreshing change!
Don’t enter Valentine’s Day unprepared! 👆🏻
We assembled this list of the best Valentine’s Day gift ideas for a busy creative entrepreneur because we believe you can come up with a much better gift than a card this year – though we always love a cute card, too.
There is something for a busy business builder in this guide to have a successful Valentine’s Day this year and, honestly, for years to come! From simple, classic gifts (of course, a bouquet of flowers!) to more unique options (think of a “List of reasons why I love you” notebook).
However, one thing applies to every item: They are just as thoughtful, interesting, and practical.
And if you’re a little late, you will surely find some great last-minute Valentine’s Day gift ideas, too.
We love the cute, cartoonish look of custom portraits. They are an incredibly personal way of honoring your other half (or other half-to-be). Create your portrait on VistaCreate and have it printed in a matter of days.
A posh notebook with a romantic message on the cover
Every entrepreneur needs a notebook for collecting ideas and composing to-do lists. You can choose from different sizes, colors, and designs and get them personalized with a fun and romantic message. Check out these ideas:

A wearable blanket hoodie
Is it a blanket? Is it a sweatshirt? Does it really matter when it’s as comfy as this? Also known as sherpa blanket and sweatshirt throw, these items are especially useful during early morning Zoom meetings when you need to cover up those PJs and look at least remotely professional.
Hmm, remotely professional – aren’t we all becoming it?
