The holiday you love to hate, or hate to love, is coming at us fast. Every February, more than $13 billion is spent on roses, cards, candy and all of the other stereotypical elements that make Valentine's Day what it is. If you're planning to make your own contribution to the multi-billion-dollar bonanza, why not do something a little more unexpected: Surprise your S.O., friends, family (or just treat yourself) with personalized Valentine's candies. Here, five options for customizing your own sweets for that extra-sweet touch.
1. Custom Candy Hearts
These candy hearts can be customized with text, photos and even emojis.
2. Signed Candy-Bar Wrappers
Wrap up a chocolate bar with these signed-and-delivered candy bar wrappers. Studio 120 Underground's Etsy shop produces these colorful wrappers with mustache symbols, which read: "I mustache you to be my Valentine!"
3. Named and Framed Candies
There are personalized candies, and then there are framed personalized candies. This Etsy store lets you send a colorful print of candy hearts with two names and a special date printed on them. Unlike your basic Halloween candy, these sweets will last a while.
4. Custom Cotton Candy
What's not to love about cotton candy and glitter? The Fluffy Factory on Etsy creates melt-in-your-mouth cotton candy that can be customized by color, flavor and ribbon choice.
5. Personalized Mini Cookies
Ok, so they're not candy—but cookies count as Valentine's sweet-treats in our book. For the holiday, bakers like @TheHayleyCakes create custom cookies and ship them nationwide.
