6 Gift Ideas for Your Valentine or Galentine This Year

Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day - no matter how you celebrate, Hemlock has gifting options for you to choose from this February 14th!

To me, Valentine's Day has always just been about being together with the people I love and, if there's gifting involved, thoughtfulness is the most important aspect. That's why my 2021 Valentine Collection is all about thoughtfulness, timelessness, and function.


Line Art Portraits

A favorite for the gifting over the holidays, my line art portraits are back as a permanent staple in the shop! You send me the photo you want displayed and any caption to include under it, and I’ll transform it into a minimal, timeless art piece that you or the giftee will cherish forever. Available in both digital and physical format, there are options for all budgets! The digital format is delivered as a print-at-home downloadable file, while the physical piece will be displayed on a sheet of 8x10 or 5x7 clear acrylic and will include a black display stand.

Handwritten Wedding Vows or Special Quotes

A particularly meaningful excerpt from your wedding vows, or that quote that you love, handwritten with care and custom-designed just for you! These items will be offered in both digital and physical formats. The digital format is a print-at-home downloadable file. For the physical version, I will be applying the quote to a piece of clear, 8x10 or 5x7 inch acrylic and including a black acrylic stand for you to display the piece in your home. Gifts don’t get much more thoughtful than this!

Personalized Engraved Water Bottles

Okay guys, this one is a BIG deal! If you’ve been following along on my Instagram you may have noticed that I received some engraving tools for Christmas. After I tried wood burning last year, engraving was next on my list, and I’ve already engraved basically every metal or glass surface I can get my hands on. I’m so excited to offer a micro-stock of personalized engraved 32 oz stainless steel water bottles! And by micro-stock, I mean it. I have 3 of these bottles in total and they’re ready to be engraved with the name of you or your Valentine! Follow along on my Instagram to see a behind the scenes video of my hand-engraving process that's coming out soon.

Digital Art Prints

If you’re looking for a more DIY-friendly gift this year, look no further. I’ve created some love-inspired art prints for you to choose from. Choose your favorite, download the file directly from your purchase confirmation email, and print it at home! You can use it as a homemade card or frame it as a cute art piece for years to come.

“Look at You Go” Inspirational Hanging Mirror

These mirrors were a huge hit over the holidays, so I’ve restocked them for 2021! I apply a flat gold wire trim to a 12 inch diameter circular mirror, add my handwritten “look at you go” decal to the bottom, and attach a white rope to the back for hanging - all by hand! Who doesn’t want a little inspiration when they look in the mirror in the morning?

Calligraphy Class

Are you more of an “experiences over things” person? Logistics can be tricky right now (go away COVID who invited you anyway), but picture this: you and your girls, in a virtual meetup, glasses of wine and fresh new calligraphy supplies in hand, learning how to write calligraphy together! If that doesn’t sound like a perfect pandemic-friendly Galentine celebration, I don’t know what does. I’ll be teaching Modern Calligraphy classes with Sip and Script ® at 8pm EST on January 29th and February 12th. Come join me at either class and bring your Galentines! Ticket sales close one week before the class date to allow for your calligraphy supplies to ship in time. If you’re looking for a private party instead, send me an email! I can set up a private class just for you and your friends. No experience required!


Now that you've got some ideas, what are you waiting for? Hit the shop now.
