With these Personalized Valentine’s Gifts from Gifts For You Now, I decided to make Bourbon Cherry Crush Cocktails and include Charcuterie that serves two for a special pre-Valentine’s celebration. The personalization for these glasses is available in script and block print.
During the early years of our marriage, it was all about flowers, candy and candlelight dinners. Sadly, at that time personalized Valentine’s Day gifts were not on our radar. As our family grew, the focus shifted to making sure the kids had their Valentine’s cards ready to pass out along with accompanying treats. Once they were beyond that stage, I would just make a holiday-appropriate meal for the family.

Our second oldest son is a Valentine’s baby so even if the Mr. and I didn’t do anything special for the two of us, there was always some type of celebration. Fast forward a couple decades. The house is empty and it’s just me and he. We show our love for each other every day through kindness, gratitude and just enjoying each other’s company. However, occasionally I like to surprise my hubby with a special treat that is just enough for us.
The first step was coming up with a cocktail for two that I could serve in these beautiful Valentines Personalized Glasses from Gifts For You Now, that are definitely just for us. I made a colorful cocktail so the monogram would show clearly, and the bright red color of the cherries fits in with the theme. There are two personalization options for block and script print. These personalized gifts for Valentine’s are not only keepsakes but a thoughtful way to show you care.
These charcuterie plates are enough to sustain us through an evening of Netflix and Hulu bingeing. I filled them with veggies, olives, smoked sausage, cheese, ham, nuts, dried fruit, and ranch dressing for dipping. A tasty cocktail in beautifully personalized glasses, plus munchies and the love of my life are what I consider a perfect evening for two.
*FYI- The contents of the glasses shown here are 3 servings each. I increased the amount so the personalization would show. The recipe below is for one serving per glass. Please drink responsibly.
