Valentine's Day Gifts Inspired By Romantic Movies

Hollywood has turned out countless love stories that have tugged at the heartstrings of even the most stoic person. Why not take a page from Tinsel Town’s script to please your own leading man or lady this Valentine’s Day? Show your loved one how much you care with something inspired by a favorite romantic movie.


Celebrate one of Ghost’s most romantic scenes with a pottery wheel. Don’t forget the clay, paint and other supplies! You might even sign up for a pottery class you can take together. Other arts and crafts that you can share—glass making, painting, maybe even scrapbooking—can be a fun and creative way to spend some quality time with your significant other.

The Princess Bride

With its goofy charm and wry sense of humor, gifts inspired by The Princess Bride should be both sweet and a bit irreverent. Have pictures of yourself and your Valentine placed playfully in a fairy tale scene, or create a photo album of your own storybook romance. Swashbuckling memorabilia, a la the Dread Pirate Robert, is properly romantic and humorous.

Sleepless in Seattle

For the great rom-com that takes place in Seattle, the coffee capital of the USA, an appropriate Valentine’s Day gift should definitely include top-quality coffee. A gift basket of gourmet beans and biscotti or other treats would do nicely, as would a very special coffee mug. For something a little more upscale, how about a deluxe coffee grinder? Maybe your beloved isn’t a coffee drinker, in which case a unique umbrella would pay tribute to Seattle’s famous rainy weather. Have it personalized for that extra touch.
