If you and your partner’s idea of a romantic night in is watching Game of Thrones with a beer in hand, look no further for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. The Dierwolf wall-mounted bottle opener can be personalized with your “House” name, plus it’s engraved with the phrase “Drinks are coming”.
Have your loved one’s name (or a sweet nickname) engraved on this necklace for a Valentine’s Day gift that’s more thoughtful than flowers or chocolates. You can even choose to have the inscription on the metal-plated pendant hand-stamped, rather than machine-engraved, giving it a handwritten touch.
