Let’s face it; us ladies are a little spoilt for choice when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts. We have a huge range of flowers, chocolates, jewellery, clothing, books, cuddly toys and other suitably romantic gifts designed for us. But when it comes to shopping for our men folk, the high street seems to be sorely lacking in manly love gifts. Even the Valentine’s cards seem to be geared towards the girls but don’t really have anything suitable for the dudes.
Well, we like to think that Shiny Creations has a little something for everyone, especially if you can’t find it anywhere else. So, I’ve dedicated this blog post to our romantic gifts that are perfect for the men in our lives as well as our LGBT couples, geek couples and anyone else who are underrepresented by the high street shops.
Our personalised cartoonifications –
Have your favourite photo transformed into a beautiful, hand drawn cartoon print, or have us draw you in any location you like, perhaps you and your other half at Disney Land, or in front of the Eiffel Tower, or in the middle of the pitch at the World Cup! If he could be anywhere in the world, where would it be? We can draw it!
Our unique figurines –
Our caketoppers don’t just have to go on cakes, they look just as good on a shelf or mantel piece. Have you and your partner commemorated in these adorable handmade, personalised figurines. They can be in any pose, with any props, pets or occupation/hobby items. They are totally unique to you, right down to the message scroll where you can have your names, a date or a short message written.
Our cartoon cuddly couples –
These are brand new items that we are just bringing in now! You can have your partner, friends and even yourself made into adorable handmade plushies! First we draw you as a cartoon and then we print the image onto fabric and sew your own little cuddly mini me. Have them even more personalised by holding hobby items or have them in their work uniforms. They are a unique way to show you love someone as well as being perfect for both genders!
Our geeky Valentine’s cards –
Our pop culture illustrated cards have already been very popular this year; cute cartoon illustrations inspired by Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Skyrim, Pokemon, Star Wars, Avengers, The Hunger Games, Firefly, Sci-fi, fantasy and gaming. Plus you can have them personalised by adding your Valentine’s name to the front. Who needs hearts and flowers when you could have zombies and puns?
Check out our shop and our Etsy shop for more details on any of these items, or just send us an email and we can let you know just how personalised your gifts can be for him, her or a whole bunch of friends!
