At Personal-Prints, we have a wide range of personalized name art gifts that are perfect for this occasion. With our prints, paintings, and photo to canvas options you can find a piece of artwork that represents your quirky, romantic, mysterious, or tender love. First, for those who aren’t incredibly excited about this special holiday, we hope to get you in the spirit of the day by sharing the history of Valentine’s Day.
While there are variations of the story, one storyline goes like this:
In the third century in Rome, Emperor Claudius II reigned. He decreed that young men were no longer able to marry as they would be more successful soldiers if they were single. A priest, Valentine, continued to marry young couples despite the law. When the Emperor discovered Valentine’s actions, he was sentenced to death. While in prison awaiting his execution, he fell in love with his jailer’s daughter. Just before he was to die (on February 14th), he sent a letter to his love and signed it, “From my Valentine.” If you jump ahead a few years, Pope Gelasius I declared the day of Valentine’s execution to be a day of honoring the ones we love.
There are several other Valentines in Catholic history and two of them lived around the time of the famous Valentine of February 14th, but we thought this story, however true, was the perfect way for our readers to jump into the holiday fun.
So Why Celebrate Valentine’s Day?
Even if you don’t have a significant other, there are plenty of people to show your appreciation to. Whether it’s a mother, daughter, sibling, or someone who has gone out of their way to help you at work, you can show them that you have noticed and care by giving them a gift, even if it’s a simple single flower.
What to Celebrate the Big Day With?
Traditional Valentine’s Day gifts may be partly why so many of us dread finding something special. A card picked out from the aisles of the grocery store, a box of chocolate that could be for anyone, or a bouquet of flowers that will wilt within a week or two, even though the thought is there and it’s nonetheless significant, there are plenty of people out there who want a Valentine’s Day gift that truly shows how special that someone is. So what is that perfect gift?
A Personalized Name Art Design
At Personal-Prints, we love sharing artwork that has inspired us to show the ones we love how important they are. And we have found that nothing says that more than a personalized name art print or painting. Whether it’s you and your significant other’s name etched into a tree, drawn in the sand, or if it’s a design that uses photography to spell out the letters of a name, we can’t wait to share with you some of our favorite pieces.
With beautiful aspen trees full of bright yellow leaves and the pop of red from two cardinals flying through the air, this personalized name art print is full of meaning and life. The original painting was completed by our own artist Scott Kennedy, who created an image with the perfect balance of color and love. To personalize the print, you can “carve” your names inside a heart on one of the aspen trees. Your love with forever be in your view with this piece hanging in your home.

The bright shades of blue and green of the water, contrasted with the cool tone of the orange beach umbrella and the neutral color of the sand makes the image easy to hang anywhere in the house.
