Celebrating Valentine’s with #Free cards for the kids

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample for review purposes. The opinions are my own and were not influenced in any way.

Desktop Plaque

Every day my son asks me “is there any mail for me?” Each day, it’s normally a no. Sure, he gets some cards mailed to him around his birthday in November, one or two cards in the mail in December for Christmas. My mother also sends the kids cards for Thanksgiving, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and of course, Valentine’s Day!

I’m not sure what it is about the Valentine’s Day cards, but they just love to see all the hearts, and red, and pink, that normally surround all the cards for them at that time of the year. Both kids love February when it rolls around, they get Winter Break for a week, and of course, right before that, it’s red envelopes arriving in the mailbox from Nana with their Valentine’s Day cards. Normally filled with stickers.

My mother lives in the next town over, and we see my parents almost every weekend…..but the kids love to get mail in the mailbox, and Mom never disappoints them with cards at just the right times of the year.

Personally, I like to give the kids cards that I personalize over at my favorite photo sharing site! Every year they add more, and more new styles, and designs to their Valentine’s Card selection! The best part? I can get cards for their kids in the class for the special day, and they can be personalized! So much better than the generic crap you find in the dollar store! WOOHOO. However, I also have to do something for the husband. Since I’m usually on Shutterfly.com anyway, I normally head over to the Photo Gifts section of the site. Scope out what’s happening on that side of the tracks. I’m hoping for our anniversary I can find the best image of us for a wall mounted piece, but for this Valentine’s Day, I’m going with the Desktop Plaque. Mainly because I’m scoring one for no cost.

    In this cold weather, the woven blanket would be ideal!

      Hell yeah. Wish they were giving one of those away…..

    Sadly, I need thank you cards because I haven’t sent any out from Christmas or Eli’s birthday. Whoops

      I don’t do thank you cards for holiday gifts. Just birthdays, and random events during the year. Holiday time it’s a “thank you” in person, or a call to say thanks. Or an email.
      I give you credit for doing that!!!!

    I love Shutterfly gifts…my eye is on the acrylic block and the Iphone cover. I would love to have my boys on my phone:)

      The acrylic block is pretty cool. But the plaque you could win is really cool, too!

    I love the Personalized Iphone cover!!

      I’m always so jealous of the iPhone lovers out there who can order these kinds of things…..us droid people never get goodies like this!
      Good luck!!!
