Valentine’s Day is a time for passion and there’s no doubt the entertainer in your life is passionately seeking a reason to break out the silver and chill down the champagne.

The "it's complicated" relationship you're in with 2021 may result in plans to spend Valentine’s Day at home, which means you, or your favorite plus one, will likely be assuming hosting duties. Regardless of whether it’s a party of one, romantic date for two, or girls' night with the pod: there’s no occasion too small for the consummate host, who will go to great lengths to assemble a memorable soirée.

With that in mind, we’ve gathered our picks for party perfect Valentine’s Day presents to help you mark the occasion with custom entertaining gifts that will carry on celebratory traditions for years to come.

Unlike the dreaded "It's not you, it's me" ghost of breakups past, this is one instance where we suggest you take it personally. A personalized Valentine’s Day gift emblazoned with your beloved’s moniker or monogram is a thoughtful way of showing you love them for exactly who they are.

Inspired by those who adore the art of gathering, the hand selected pieces in this gift guide are as thoughtful as a gracious southern host. From one reveler to another, trust us when we say these heirloom-worthy tokens of affection are sure to solidify your spot on both the guest list and their heart.

An entertainer’s love of collecting pieces that are both fanciful and functional knows no bounds. Surprise them with customized silver home décor accents from Mark & Graham; a memento that can adorn their bar cart, bookshelf, or butler pantry year-round.

Our experts agree: personalized ice buckets overflowing with festive bubbles is the go-to pairing for a special evening in. Add a traditional monogram to create a statement piece that will be a welcomed addition to their menagerie, or for something a bit more playful, try an inside joke that is sure to be a conversation starter at the dinner table.

Flowers on Valentine’s Day are a must and your match's favorite varietal will wow when arranged in a classic mint julep vase donning their initials.

For a sentimental touch, display a treasured memory in this engraved picture frame that effortlessly captures a moment in time.

A personalized cocktail shaker is ideal for shaking things up. If you're in the market for a gift that will certainly impress (perhaps to make up for the Christmas present misstep), look no further than this happy hour staple, here to help ensure that your margarita is the only thing in your life that's on the rocks.

We are all spending more time at home these days and this custom door mat from Emily McCarthy & Co. gets our homebody stamp of approval.

Entertainers know an essential element of any great party is making an entrance, so set the tone with a grand invitation that beckons guests to step inside.

As a bonus, it's the perfect landing spot to receive a food delivery, in case the host decided to order-in the hors d’oeuvres. Don’t worry, it will be our little secret- just be sure to tip well, so your delivery driver respects the circle of trust.

Perhaps your love story started with the infamous “What’s Your Sign” opening line or you believe that your connection was written in the stars: either way, custom zodiac pajamas from LouLou Baker are a guaranteed way to take a night-in up a notch.

Upon successfully completing their hosting duties, your partner or Galentine will relish the opportunity to slip into pajamas that are equally cozy and chic, just in time to reflect on the evening’s highlights over a nightcap.

And since pajamas are no longer just for nocturnal endeavors, this set will do double duty as their new go-to work from home ensemble.

Introducing Entertaining on a Whim: our collection of ready-to-entertain table settings thoughtfully curated for the holiday host in collaboration with Whim Hospitality.

Let's face it, it's been a stressful year; socially distanced life has left many social calendars sparse. We are longing for something to look forward to, we wish to be dressed up with somewhere to go, and we're anxiously awaiting the return of special occasions where we gather around the table with family and friends (either in person or virtually). The weird time warp we've been in may have you feeling like the holidays have suddenly snuck up on you and that party planning has been put on the back burner, like your gravy.

We've got the design and rentals covered, all you have to do is assemble the guest list- just consider these turnkey packages another thing to be grateful for this season.
