Unique Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas
Finding the right gift for your partner on Valentine’s Day can be full of pressure — especially if you’ve been together for a very short time or a very long time! So many expectations come with Valentine’s Day gifts to be special, memorable, and appropriate that you might be considering your options for far too long before making a choice.
At Music Box Attic, we’re here to solve some of your gifting anxiety with creative Valentine’s Day gift ideas for all types of couples. Explore our unique Valentine’s Day gift ideas here to find the perfect one for you!
1. A Custom Music Box
Music boxes have been special keepsakes for over two hundred years! If you want to make your Valentine’s Day truly memorable, consider making a custom box with a little help from Music Box Attic.
This creative Valentine’s Day gift idea gives you control over the type of musical device, from a USB module to a mechanical movement with a range between 18 and 144 notes. You also get to choose the song itself for a mechanical movement or put together a playlist that can hold up to 100MB of mp3 data songs for your USB module. Add an engraved plaque with your anniversary, your partner’s name, or even a meaningful quote, and you’ve got a unique Valentine’s Day gift idea that’s one-of-a-kind.
2. Handcrafted Jewelry Box
This creative Valentine’s Day gift idea is a little more than just your basic jewelry box. For one, many of our jewelry boxes play music. For another, our jewelry box interiors are specially felted to protect your partner’s most delicate pieces from scratches, scuffs, and wear.
We have jewelry boxes of all shapes and sizes, some even with multiple tiers and trays. Box compartments are also customized to ensure they can properly house rings on ring rolls, bracelets in cubbies, earrings on holders, and more! You might even find boxes with extra special details, like mirrored interior lids, ballerina figurines, or wind-up music. Explore our large jewelry boxes here and our medium jewelry boxes here.
3. Delicate Figurine
Does your loved one appreciate decor accents like vases, art, and delicate figurines? This could be the unique Valentine’s Day gift idea you’re looking for! Our figurine music boxes come in all styles, shapes, and sizes — and some are even music or jewelry boxes too.
Maybe you’re expecting a baby, and you want to explore children’s figurines that play a lullaby for when your little one is finally born. Perhaps, your loved one has a passion for art and would enjoy a figurine based on a work by Van Gogh. What if your partner simply loves snowglobes? We have all these figurines and more for creative Valentine’s Day gift ideas that show you genuinely care about their interests.
4. Artisan Wall Clock
As far as creative Valentine’s Day gift ideas, this gift is one that helps you count the seconds, minutes, and hours that your love has thrived. An artisan wall clock is also a practical, functional piece that you’ll be looking at every day – checking the time and enjoying a reminder of your love and life together.
At Music Box Attic, we have a fun selection of artisan wall clocks that vary from traditional German cuckoo clocks and mechanical clocks to contemporary and modern quartz designs. Browse our selection to find one that matches your partner’s personality and fits your home’s aesthetic.
5. Authentic German Cuckoo Clock
Is your partner passionate about precision mechanics or engineering? There’s nothing better than an authentic German cuckoo clock to represent that love for exactitude. World-renowned as the best clock makers in the world, those artisans who work out of the Black Forest in Germany deliver stunning designs full of rustic themes that will make this a very creative Valentine’s Day gift idea for the mechanically inclined.
In our collection, you’ll find such brands as Hones, Progetti, Rombach and Haas, Trenkle Uhren, and more for a massive variety of styles, shapes, and varieties — each authenticated by the Black Forest Clock Association.
6. Men’s Valet Box
While many of the creative Valentine’s Day gift ideas on this list have been geared toward women or unisex offerings, we also have some gifts specifically for men. A men’s valet box serves a similar purpose as a woman’s jewelry box — holding all his essentials in one place. These types of boxes may come with or without music, but their interior is designed to hold wallets, phones, cuff links, watches, and other accessories your man may need to grab at a moment's notice. Some of our men’s valet boxes even have cut-outs to accommodate charging cables and pillow rests to protect high-end watches.
7. Photo or Video Music Box
The final creative Valentine’s Day gift idea on our list is one that’s truly custom and personal — a video or photo music box. Photo frame music boxes allow you to slide a favorite memory captured and printed into the lid for display whenever the box is closed. Video music boxes are LCD screen-based, with a small screen on the interior of the lid. Have your video play a slideshow of your favorite memories together or a memorable video clip you’ll always enjoy watching.
