Unique Valentine’s Gifts They’ll Truly Treasure (More Than Roses!)
Instead of the usual retail jewelry stores, explore the diverse selection of pre-owned jewelry at our pawn shops.

Pawn Shop Finds for Romantics
Looking for alternatives to the usual gift ideas? Our stores offer a treasure trove of unique and often unexpected pawn shop finds, perfect for the sweet romantic. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Vintage treasures: Want to give a gift that no one else can find? Shopping with us gives you the opportunity to find both one-of-a-kind and timeless pieces of jewelry with a sparkling elegance. Whether a classic watch or a vintage necklace is on your radar this Valentine’s Day, we’ve got plenty of choices for you.
- Musical instruments: Does your love have a hidden musical talent? A gently used instrument like a guitar or piano could be a great way for them to share their passion with you. You may even discover a vintage record player at one of our locations!
- Home at last: Who doesn’t enjoy cuddling up at home with their special person? A retro video game can make for great quality time together.
Meaningful Treasures that Tell a Story
There’s nothing more special than giving the gift of a story. A gift like a classic camera can be a wonderful way to make your own memories, or as we like to think, to write your own story. From Nikon to Canon, and from old to new, we have options waiting for you at Queen of Pawns.
DIY Projects with Pawn Shop Gems
Get creative and express your love through a thoughtful DIY project using unique materials from our pawn shop. Choose a beautiful piece of jewelry, maybe a gold locket necklace, a gold or silver bracelet, or a luxury diamond watch, to inscribe and keep forever. If you love the idea of an engraved gift, think of something with a twist! How about a classic guitar with your initials and a special date engraved, making it a gift of both music and love!
Curated Gift Ideas for Every Budget
Make a basket of love this Valentine’s Day. A curated basket is a very thoughtful gift and makes for a very special moment. Not everything in the basket needs to be romantic or very expensive for your partner to see the love and care that went into the gift!
