Let’s finish up with some final Valentines Day ideas for couples

Before you wrap your Classic Mapiful print, why not add some pins or stickers to your map and mark out special places that mean the world to you both. This will add an extra romantic touch, and allow you to highlight multiple special places on one map. Bonus points for color matching!

If that’s not your style and Star Mapiful or Text Art Mapiful have caught your eye, why not add a handwritten message on the back of your print! This secret love note will last a lifetime, and is the perfect way to set an intention or commitment as a couple before you hang your print on the wall.

Our final gift idea is for those who want to go all out on Valentines Day. Creating a gallery wall of several Mapiful prints to commemorate different milestones on your love story will make you fall in love again and again every time you look at it. Choose and customize prints of where you first met, your engagement day and your wedding day, and frame your journey as a couple with pride.
