Of course, gifts like these also have the benefit of being fully customizable. You can add your name, initials, and even a photo of yourself to your Valentine’s Day 3D printing idea.

Starting simple, this heart-shaped 3D printed box is a great choice for Valentine’s Day gift recipients who love a functional gift. With two compartments, this little box is perfect for candy and other treats, but can also be used for fancier gifts like jewelry. You can easily turn the box into something you like by customizing the letters on the box using Thingiverse’s built-in customizer.

This 3D printable box can be easily scaled using the slicer of your choice to turn it into a larger box in place of a chocolate box.
