Valentine’s Day is the next big gift-giving holiday on deck and selling Valentine’s Day gifts is a great way to rev your sales after the winter holiday season.

In this post, I talk about how to create winning Valentine’s Day designs. I share a list of Custom Happy products that make fantastic Valentine’s Day gifts. And I share a list of hashtags, coupon codes, and social media templates to help you market your Valentine’s Day products.

Let’s take a look…

What can I sell on Valentine’s Day? CustomHappy.com ideas

Below, you’ll find a list of products available on CustomHappy.com that have high selling potential around Valentine’s Day. You’ll also find a link to mockups for that product plus a design example from Etsy.

When you create designs for these products, create mostly evergreen designs as opposed to Valentine’s Day-specific designs. That way, your products have year-round selling potential.

You can include a few “Happy Valentine’s Day” designs if you’d like. But when it comes to selling Valentine’s Day gifts, the bulk of your designs should focus on the more evergreen topic of love and appreciation for your significant other (husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends).

You can also create designs about…

  • Friendship love
  • The love between family members (e.g. mom and daughter)
  • Being single or self-love

Create a mix of funny and sweet messages for your designs – for example, “If I had another boyfriend, I’d punch him in the face and go find you” and “You’re the best thing that ever happened to me.”

Additionally, you can put most designs you come up with for one product on other products as well. For example, if you make a mug that says, “I love you truly, madly, deeply,” you can also put that phrase on a candle, coaster, journal, et cetera. Always work smarter, not harder.

Here are some additional tips about creating winning Valentine’s Day designs: 

  • Keep it simple
  • Use high-quality images
  • Consider your target audience
  • Offer personalization (This is a must for Valentine’s Day gifts. Let customers add names, dates, photos, or special messages to the designs.)

Now, let’s look at the list of the best Custom Happy products for Valentine’s Day…

How to optimize your Valentine’s Day listings

After creating your designs, you need to make and optimize your listings. This means adding images that show your product from a variety of angles along with lifestyle images that show your products in use (use my mockups). You also need to add relevant keywords to your titles, descriptions, and tags.

Here’s a list of some popular Valentine’s Day-related keywords according to Etsy and Amazon:

Valentine’s Day keywords work well this time of year and help your listings gain visibility. But you should swap out your Valentine’s Day keywords for evergreen terms after the holiday passes. Shoppers aren’t likely to search for the phrase “Valentine’s Day gifts for men” in June. But they may still search for the phrase “gifts for husband.”

Again, this helps you sell your products year-round, not just around Valentine’s Day.

How to promote sales on Valentine’s Day

The easiest ways to do this are through social media and special promotions. You can learn more about how to set up Valentine’s Day coupon codes here.
