Red, White and LOVE for Valentine’s Day #LoveHallmarkCA #ad

Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and that means red and white everything with a sprinkling of hearts. It’s like we get an excuse to show those we love, just how much we love them. Not that I need an excuse but it’s nice to see so many fun and whimsical goodies on store shelves to make it easier.

Red, White and LOVE for Valentine’s Day

When it comes to holiday’s and special occasions Hallmark has always been my go-to destination. They not only help us celebrate but their line of products are really cute for day-to-day use afterwards.

My kids will be making sure each of their classmates and teachers know just how they feel about them with this Valentine Emoticons Tray ($2.99). Each package comes with 32 cards, 35 stickers, and 1 teacher card.

I know what I card I am giving to my hubby and also what card he will be giving me, because I am handing him this cute felt one to fill out. Think it’s weird that I am giving him the card I want? I promise you that it is the best way to make sure you are not disappointed. It’s also the same reason I buy my own gifts with his money.

I am smitten with this pink sunglass case ($16.95), so much so that I even put on a coat of nail polish to show it off. It even has a leopard-print inside and I am now on the lookout for some new sunnies (and the sun) so that I can make it a staple for my purse.

I don’t know what I would be more excited for the gift or these amazing gift bags. The Signature Marble Medium Bag ($7.99) has gold foil on the sides, a beautiful marble face and elegant metal handles that will have the person receiving it fall in love before they even get to the gift. For a more whimsy bag check out the Signature XOXO Small Bag (6.99) that has confetti it the face. Looking for a teacher’s gift or just something special for a loved one to enjoy in the office? This metallic-gold Apple Paperweight ($24.95) comes beautifully boxed and ready to gift. Be warned though, little hands are instantly drawn to its beauty.

valentines dayIf we were to compare gift bags to cupcakes I would say that tissue paper is very likely the icing on the cake. Whether you are looking for something that flat out says “hey I love you” like this Love on White Tissue ($1.99) or looking for an effortless wow factor like this Red and White Spiral Tissue ($2.49), you will have the best-dressed cupcake (gift) of them all.

Valentine’s day doesn’t have to be all about the chocolate and wine (that should be a big part obvs). Why not add this beautiful Marbled Wristlet Purse ($19.95) for that special lady in your life (I totally mean you!). With its mix of textures (canvas, simulated leather and metal) and the pink, mint, gold and brown marbling you can’t help but love it. Fill it up with your debit card, lipstick and this adorable Lips Mirror Compact ($16.95)  you can make sure you can stay on your A-game all day long.valentines day  valentines day

Gold is the new black at least that is what I keep telling myself…over and over and over. I don’t want to say that I am going to conveniently lose my other journal because I want to start using this Colour-Block Cork Journal ($16.95), but the odds are it’s going to happen. Casual cork and white and gold stripes look beautiful–and the pen loop will keep you ready to jot down some dreams anytime. Also, please look at the top right of the below picture and observe the Cork Coasters ($24.95). Whether you will use them for their intended purpose of protecting your furniture or you are like me and think they are a perfect addition to my (your) new gold/white decor scheme, grab a (few) set(s), invite over friends, make drinks, drink drinks and talk about your amazing new coasters.

valentines day

WHEW! Now that we talked about all those goodies it’s time to celebrate…with these Cheers to Us Stemless Wineglasses ($19.95 PROMO PRICE $9.95). For the past few years our wineglasses have been plastic cups that are break-proof but the moment I got this in my hands I knew that it was love at first sight. They are thick and heavy bubbled glass that can even withstand me at my worst (best?) and each boast a cute saying like “Let the good times flow” and “I’ll clink to that!”. Through the years we have mastered how to polish off a bottle of wino in one sitting-practice makes perfect-I know that there are some who are not as skilled as I. Enter this cute Lightbulb Bottle Stopper ($12.95) with a heart shaped filament that says “Love you WATTS”(<—I laughed way too long over this) so that you can keep your wine safe for another time.

What are you hoping to get this Valentine’s Day?
