+5 Sites to buy Valentine’s Day gifts with Bitcoin
It’s time for some love because Valentine’s Day is here. This is the perfect day to give away something special to your loved ones, be it your friends or a partner. Of course, you can buy your Valentine’s Day gifts with Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies worldwide. Indeed, you can even find some interesting crypto-themed products for the date.
Don’t even sure about what to give? Well, we got you! Let’s check our list with some crypto-romantic places and products.
Etsy + Redbubble
These two sites are made for creators and artisans to share their merch and designs worldwide. So, there are a lot of custom, handmade, or vintage products -especially on Etsy. On this last platform, you can find crypto-themed and romantic products like cards, necklaces, lamps, mugs, bags, socks, and more. A nice example is the mugs with crypto-romantic quotes: “You’re not-fungible to me”, or “I love my girlfriend more than crypto”.
On Redbubble, the T-shirts and caps are common for crypto-themed products. In this Valentine’s, we can see creative designs including hearts with BTCs and special messages. Now, despite the crypto-style in the merch, neither Etsy nor Redbubble accept crypto directly. But there’s a trick because both of them accept PayPal.
This implies that you can top up your PayPal account with cryptos and then easily buy your products here. Besides, the seller can offer a manual payment and arrange a crypto transaction for the buyer on Etsy.
We won’t find crypto-themed products here, but it’s possible to buy a nice Valentine’s Day gift paying with Bitcoin, Dash, Ethereum, NEM, Litecoin, and Monero. They have several categories, but probably the most useful ones, in this case, are two: Jewelry and Holidays / Valentine’s Day. Because yes, they have a special category for this special date.
Beyond the classic jewelry (rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, watches, etc.), inside the special category, you can find all kinds of love-themed products. Décor, rugs, love seats, paintings, pillows, and more. Overstock ships worldwide, and, in case you’re also interested, the rest of the categories include furniture, rugs, bed and bath, home improvement, outdoor, lighting, toys, and Gifting — for her, for him, and deals.
ABCFlora + CryptoFlowers
An obvious gift for this holiday is flowers. So, where can we find them in exchange for some cryptos? The site ABCFlora is an alternative that ships worldwide. According to their site, they “have more than 1000 florists around the world” for you to “Say it with flowers”. You first pick your destination and then choose among roses, lilies, orchids, and much more, including thematic bouquets and baskets.
ABCFlora accepts Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dai, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, USDC, and PayPal. However, if you want more durable flowers, you can always choose something more digital for this Valentine’s Day, even beyond Bitcoin. The platform CryptoFlowers can offer you that, with about 50,000 seedlings to breed unique and collectible flowers on Ethereum, Tron, and Binance Smart Chain (BSC).
Valentine Coin + Mintmade
We’re going digital again because the Non-Fungible Tokens ( NFTs) are very nice gifts too. About this type, we can mention the platform Valentine Coin, which motto is “Engrave your love in the blockchain.” They issue customized NFTs with unique messages, thought especially as gifts. The intention is for this token to work as a padlock in a bridge, and remain forever on the blockchain along with the message. They can be bought with ETH (but it’s neccesary to contact them first).
For its part, the platform Mintmade is doing something very similar for Valentine’s Day. According to their site, you can now “declare your feelings on the blockchain”. And it’s quite easy. The only thing you need to do is enter your name and your couple’s name to mint a Valentine’s Day NFT card on Polygon (MATIC). If you want, you can also add a premium frame.
CoinMap + Cryptwerk: your own choice
Beyond all these sites, you can always choose a nice one on your own, and close to you. There are many plans you can do with your partner on this special day: a romantic dinner, nightclubs, attractions, shopping, and even a journey together are good options. To find the best plan and venue, you can use tools like CoinMap and Cryptwerk. With them, you can check what kinds of businesses and services accept Bitcoin and cryptos in your area for this Valentine’s Day and more.
For example, you can choose a city on CoinMap, like Berlin (Germany), and look for the best cafes and restaurants to have your romantic dinner and pay with cryptos. On Cryptwerk, you choose first a specific coin, check the map in your region, and pick a category of business (like Food & Drinks). And that’s it!
Now it’s time for you to celebrate Valentine’s Day with Bitcoin and cryptos. Happy and lovely day!
