You’ve likely seen a slight dip in your sales in the weeks after Christmas and New Year’s. But Valentine’s Day presents a fantastic opportunity to rev up your sales once again, and it’s only 22 days away.
Valentine’s Day is another one of the more significant gift-giving holidays. And it can be a pretty big deal if people forget to treat their loved ones to something special, making Valentine’s Day a great time for you to push new designs and promotions.
Last year, I made a post with Valentine’s Day promotion aids, including coupon codes and social media templates. So this year I thought I’d update that post and add a bunch of Valentine’s Day mockups to it.
Now, the post consists of the following resources that you can use to make your Valentine’s Day promotions more effective and engaging:
- 30 downloadable Valentine’s Day mug mockups
- Valentine’s Day coupon code suggestions
- Hashtags related to Valentine’s Day (as well as a few anti-Valentine hashtags)
- And fill-in-the-blank social media templates
Let’s take a look!
Valentine’s Day Mug Mockups
Over the holidays, I put my fantastic designers to work creating mockups pertaining to Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year’s. And with Valentine’s Day coming up, I called on their creative talents once again to make a series of Valentine’s Day mug mockups.
There are ten unique mockups. And each unique mockup comes in three different sizes: one for Facebook, one for Twitter, and one for Pinterest, for a total of thirty downloadable mockups.
Adding your mug designs to these mockups will make your social media promotions look super professional and be really eye-catching. They’ll definitely help your products stand out and grab people’s attention.
Plus, you can use the mockups on Etsy, and even on Amazon too (just as long as you don’t use them as your mugs’ main image).
Check out a preview of the mockups below:
Our normal mockup designer was on vacation, but the gal who jumped in did a great job as well and we hope you love them.

(This helps us gauge if people like these and if we should keep adding more. Please allow a few minutes for the email to hit your inbox.)
After downloading the mockups, just add your mugs’ designs using any graphic software and upload the images to your Valentine’s Day social media promotions.
(If you have LHS, there’s a video inside the Design section that offers more information about how you can use the mockups.)
Promote your Valentine’s Day products
To make your Valentine’s Day promotions even simpler to create, below you’ll find a bunch of coupon codes, hashtags, and social media templates that you can use.
