8 Last-Minute Trademark Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day

by Guest Blogger

Valentine's Day will be celebrated around the world tomorrow. It is one of the most popular gift-giving events of the year. According to the National Retail Federation, the average American plans to spend $133.91 on candy, cards, gifts, dinner and more. The NRF notes that men are the primary gift givers:

Men will spend $108.38 on gifts for their significant others â twice as much as women who will spend $49.41 on their special someone.

After 11 years of marriage, I have learned the importance of planning ahead for Valentine's Day. That said, I know that many shoppers will be scrambling over the next 24 hours to find the perfect gift for that special someone. We are here to help. After consulting with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office database, we found a number of suitable Valentine's Day themed gifts.

At a minimum, you need a greeting card. NightAsWell, LLC registered HAPPY VALENTINE'S NIGHT, U.S. Reg. No. 3,437,903, for various greeting card services. This card features a baby dressed as Cupid. Your Valentine's heart will melt.

Sweet treats are next on the list. The USPTO database has several good options. Hawaiian Host registered VALENTINE MACADAMIA MEDLEY, U.S. Reg. No. 4,111,230, for chocolate covered macadamia nuts. What a great way to say, ""Aloha au ia 'oe".
