This year, I planned to skip the dollar store when looking for Valentine’s Day treats for my family and friends. No more last minute rush to pick up jumbo bags of generic trinkets and cards – I wanted to take it up a notch while keeping within the same budget.
My goal was to find each of my “Valentines” one special little item that is either useful or pretty, or both! I set aside last Saturday afternoon to browse for just the right treats but I didn’t get any further than the first store. Why? Well, because luckily, there’s Hallmark. Hallmark always has items for every holiday and season. With Valentine’s just a few days away, I must share with you all the cute gift giving goodies they have to offer that are perfect everyone on your special list!
Check out my pics below for a sneak peak at the gifts that are going to make ‘em smile well beyond Feb 14th.
Sometimes, goodies come in boxes. 🙂 Like these Valentine Emoticons Tray cards. They’re cute, fun and they come with 35 stickers that your kid(s) can get creative with. We got creative and added some chocolates and some heart lollipops and Ta Da! MSRP $2.99
There is always time for wine…that’s a motto at my house. I’m a sucker for cute wine glasses and my best friend benefits from it because whatever I get, I make sure she gets it too. These Cheers to Us Stemless Wineglasses are perfect to break out for a girl’s night or have in your office for those stressful days. 😉 (I used mine immediately) MSRP $9.95 *Dishwasher safe
When it comes to gift giving, Valentine’s Day is one that I enjoy. Because there is no stress to choosing a gift. The “It’s the thought that counts” really does apply to Valentine’s Day. It’s the day, when no matter what you give, the recipient will feel special. Check out these beautiful gifts I found to give to some special ladies in my life and one I kept one for me. 🙂
My babysitter and dog walker will receive chocolates and fun stuffies in the cutest Hallmark Signature Bags. Shhhh! Signature Marble Bag MSRP $7.99; Signature XOXO Small Bag MSRP $6.99
I ‘ll give my co-workers these fun gifts that they can use at the office or at home. Cork Coasters MSRP $24.95 (set of 4), Pink Eyeglass Case MSRP $16.95, Colour Block Cork Journal (160 pages) MSRP $16.95.
I already treated myself to this beautiful Apple Paperweight that made a great addition to my home office. MSRP $24.95
And lastly, my 17 year old daughter is so picky when it comes to things she likes. So this gorgeous Lip Mirror Compact was perfect. Subtle, fun and I already surprised her with it! MSRP $16.95
You didn’t think I’d forget my husband…
I had a little fun creating a cute date night message for him for Valentine’s Day. The bonus? I get to keep this fun Lightbulb Bottle Stopper! Win. Win. MSRP $12.95
