Every single day you get to spend with your special someone is worth celebrating. But February 14th is the day to pull out all the stops. It’s a time to express your admiration for your partner with a romantic date, thoughtful gestures, and heartfelt gifts. If you’re looking for a romantic Valentine’s Day gift idea that’ll help your sweetheart know how much you care, you’re in the right place.
Picture this: you’ve just come home from a romantic evening spent at your favorite restaurant. Your sweetheart’s already swooning from the roses and heartfelt note you sent to her desk in the morning. You hand her your gift, she tears open the wrapping paper, and audibly gasps — it’s a handpainted oil portrait of one of her favorite photos of the two of you.
For years, even decades to come, she’ll think of how much you love her every time she sees it hanging on the wall.
Here are some of our most heartwarming stories of people who expressed their love with the help of PaintYourLife.
Happily Ever After
Richard married his sweetheart around one year ago — so when their first Valentine’s Day as a married couple was about to come up, he knew he wanted to do something extra special for his valentine. He decided to commission a beautiful oil painting of a tender moment he and his wife shared — a photo of their first dance as husband and wife.
Richard worked one-on-one with a skilled artist to bring his vision to life, complete with the words “Happily Ever After” written across the canvas and a fairytale horsedrawn carriage in the corner. He was certain his wife would love it — but even still, he wasn’t prepared for such an excited reaction! In her own words, she said “This is the best thing you could have done for us! I love it!”
