Valentine’s Day is a special day, starting from childhood when you bring your Valentines to school addressed to your best friends and secret crushes, then through the dating years (single on Valentines day, or in love, there’s a reason to celebrate for or against it) and of course when you’re married with kids and make it a family day celebrating everything that love means within your home.
Hallmark is the go-to destination for gift giving year round and Valentine’s Day won’t leave you empty handed for your loved one, with a quick visit in store. We received a lovely box packed full of Hallmark goodies for gift-giving this year and I picked a few favorites to highlight for you!
First, I packaged this up in a gift bag and tissue paper and gave it to my bestie this week. Perfect right? If you happen to have a loved one’s birthday coming up, this is a great idea to pick up now. They’re on sale right now for $9.95!
Then, I set to packaging up gifts for the kid’s teachers. With items like the these, it makes gift-giving so easy because everything is not only beautiful, on trend, but also useful!
Seen in the photo above:
Hallmark Tissue Paper (6 sheets): $1.99
Signature Marble Medium Bag: $7.99
Cork Coasters (Set of 4): $24.95
Valentine’s Card: price varies
Colour-Block Cork Journal (160 pages): $16.96
I especially love the Cork Coasters and matching Colour-Block Cork Journal and though I really really want to keep it, turning 40 recently brought with it a common gift of wine glasses and coasters (I love my friends so much!) so I am going to part with these two items and give them to a teacher this Valentine’s Day.
No one wants spilled wine (it’s a travesty!) nor do they want rings on the table (my pet-peeve) so I have a second set of the Cork Coasters from Hallmark Canada set aside for one of my readers to win! Use the form below to get in to win, and gather up the bonus entries – good luck!
