Whether you think Valentines’ Day is just another way to get you to spend money or a good excuse to exchange gifts with loved ones these particularly awful Valentine’s Day Gifts might give you a laugh:

Valentine's Day Gag

Valentine's Day Gag

Can you imagine anyone actually using this ridiculous “romance on a stick” mask? Valentine’s Day does bring out negative feelings in some people like the prankster who glued the doors of florist shops shut on this most critical day. I like this quote from that post:

“Why has Valentine’s Day become so centred around short-lived gifts like flowers and chocolate? For the same price as a bouquet of flowers, the romantically-minded gentleman could get his lady something far more useful. And should the lady not show her love also? Whether or not this should be in the form of a material gift is open to debate.”

Why should women be the only people receiving gifts on Valentine’s Day? If you’re going to celebrate this holiday the men deserve gifts too. See our post on Personalized Gifts for some great ideas from a gift store we can highly recommend.

What could be better for the traveler in your life than a personalized gift they can use all the time? Check out these great yet practical engraved and embossed gifts.


  1. Coffee and Tea Travel packs with insulated stainless steel thermos bottles in totes, duffels, or travel packs. (While these don’t show engraving options you could ask if they could be.  They were a good idea for those who commute so we’ve included them here anyway.)
  2. Eliminate the time and stress of changing between time zones with an Atomic Radio Controlled Travel Alarm Clock that changes itself for you. They have a nice selection starting at only $24 with three Atomic Travel Alarm Clocks that can be engraved.
  3. While actually embossed rather than engraved, someone who travels will appreciate quality leather toiletry bags and travel grooming kits.
  4. Make the hassle of airport check-in easier with Passport Holders and Airline Ticket Holders.  ($27 and up)

LAPTOP REVIEWS: pointed us to the one day only Apple Mac, iPod and iPhone Black Friday Sale. While most of the savings are not that impressive, they do offer about a third off on the M-Audio Key Studio 49:
