What to 3D print for St. Valentine's Day?

To put it briefly: we provide you with a dose of inspiration for everything you can create with 3D printing for Valentine's Day.

#1 Spiral Rose Vase

Our first 3D printing idea for Valentine's Day is a beautiful vase in the shape of a rose. This pretty design became one of the most popular STL files on Printables last month. It's not only visually appealing but also perfect for the upcoming holiday.

We decided to print it using various 3D materials in three colors: ABSx Candy Red, ABSx Astro Red, and PETG Red. After a 4.5-hour printing time on the Prusa MK3S+, here's our result:

Our next 3D printing idea is a three-part rotating Valentine's heart, perfect for decoration or as a gift. It enhances the Valentine's Day mood on a shelf or table and makes a thoughtful present. This 3D-printed gift idea can be printed with most FFF 3D printers. Ensure you consider the right size before printing. It's an easy-to-print item, requiring no support, and is printed in one piece.

#3 Valentine's Day Heart Puzzle

The next 3D printing idea for Valentine's Day is a bit more complex. It's a heart puzzle made of 6 pieces. This item can make a delightful gift with a surprise element, as it contains secret compartments inside for sweets or love messages.

We tried it ourselves, creating it with ABSx Astro Red using 3D printing. The printing time was 24 hours. Each puzzle piece required support. Once it was 3D printed, it took some time to remove the supports and disassemble the entire heart puzzle. But we did it, and it looks fantastic!

We printed it with recycled PETG red filament and PETG black, and the result looks pretty good. Just take a look:
