Gifts for Girlfriends and Boyfriends


My day: It always starts with thoughts of you.”

Our gift selection is most commonly known for things like weddings (both for the couple and for the wedding party), baby gifts, work gifts and special occasions like Christmas or Mother’s/Father’s Day. But did you know, that we ALSO get a lot of orders for romantic gifts, for girlfriends and boyfriends.

We can be VERY romantic! And this recent order from our website inspired us to talk about it!

boyfriend girlfriend


We asked one of our regular customers about why she likes to give Things Engraved gifts to her boyfriend. She told us that she loves to give gifts that can actually be used AND be very special.

I like to buy gifts that I KNOW the person receiving it will actually use. The gifts I purchase from Things Engraved make giving even MORE special because of the engraving. Whenever he uses his gift, he can think me, or the memory of when I gave it to him. For example, I got him a nice flask and shot glass for his birthday last year and paired it with a bottle of his favourite whiskey. For our one year anniversary, I bought him a crystal optic heart with our names engraved, along with the date we started dating. We look at it every year on our anniversary and it sits on a shelf above his desk.” – Janelle

Guys can be tough to buy gifts for and this customer came up with a few great ideas that are both romantic and personal. We have lots of great gifts for both guys and girls, that can be made into a romantic gesture for a special occasion or just because you want to show your love.

Here are a few romantic gifts we have shared on our Instagram feed over the last few months.

7 Facts About the Human Heart


heart facts

heart factsThe heart is one of the essential components of human life. It was once also believed to be the center from where love and other emotions emanated. Many feel a heart can break and that it can know no bounds of love. Dr. Seuss’  “The Grinch” was said to be nasty because his heart was “two sizes too small.”

Although there is mystery surrounding matters of the heart, there is much known about the physical makeup of the human heart. Here are seven facts about the human heart.

1. Heart attacks and heart disease may be viewed as an illness that primarily affects men. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, women have more cases of heart-related illnesses than men. In Canada, 50.5 % of heart attack, stroke and heart failure deaths are in women and 49.5 % are in men.

2. A bigger heart isn’t necessarily a sign that a person is more inclined toward love. An enlarged heart is actually a medical condition, which can lead to heart failure.

3. A hearty laugh is good for the heart. This laugh attack can actually cause the lining of blood vessels to relax, enabling more blood to flow through for at least 45 minutes afterward.

4. Romantic endeavors in the bedroom can be as good for the heart as a brisk 15-minute walk. Intimate acts can burn up to 200 calories and be the cardiovascular exercise a person needs.

5. A glass of wine can be good for the heart because of the antioxidant properties contained in grapes. Alcohol can also thin the blood, enabling better flow. Just be sure to stick to one or two drinks per day. Over-indulgence won’t make the heart healthier.

6. The heart is a fist-sized muscle that can beat an average of 100,000 times every day. In under a minute the heart can deliver oxygen-rich blood to every cell in the body.

7. A woman’s heart beats faster than a man’s. In some cases doctors are able to predict the gender of a fetus by the baby’s heart rate.
