I’ve always been a lover of pretty paper, beautiful cards and basically all things stationery. When it comes to Valentine gift ideas, Hallmark is my go-to place. Each year, I love picking out that special card for my special loved ones: Hubby and Little One.
I have to admit that I’m a fan of beautiful gift bags and gift boxes. Giving a gift that is beautifully presented shows that you’ve taken the time to put things together. The great thing about gift bags that are this pretty and this well made is that you can use them again after. These particular ones below are from the Sarah Jessica Parker Collection. The Hallmark Sarah Jessica Parker Collection is a new offering of stationery and gift wrap sold exclusively at Hallmark Gold Crown stores across Canada. I just love the colours and designs!
If you’re looking for Valentine gift ideas for your littlest sweethearts that don’t involve sugar, these are great ideas:
Hallmark carries a variety of licensed products like the itty bittys Disney Happy Hearts. These limited-edition Valentine’s Day versions of Mickey and Minnie are itty bitty, and so adorable. Perfect for your little Valentine! MSRP: $6.95 each.
Disney Sweethearts Mickey and Minnie – the classic Mickey and Minnie made from fabric that makes you think of the nostalgic Disney cartoons. I remember falling in love with Mickey and Minnie when I was a kid! This sweet pair = the ultimate classic couple. MSRP: $14.95 each (sold separately)
Hearts a-Hoppin’ Frog – This adorable frog dances in sync to a parody of “Hot, Hot, Hot!” while he walks in a circle. He’s bound to make everyone feel hoppy! Coordinating book also available (sold separately). Hearts a-Hoppin’ Frog special $15.95 with the purchase of 3 Hallmark cards or MSRP: $29.95.
Magic Message Reveal Heart – The heart shape is a symbol of love recognized universally. With a simple touch, an endearing message appears in the clear heart-shaped window. When you twist the top, the inner compartment allows you to add a small personalized gift or message for your special someone. MSRP: $16.95
Spring Dots Dual Memo Block – I always have a memo block on my desk to jot down quick notes or to leave my husband a message. Remember how I said I love pretty stationery? I wasn’t kidding. The Spring Dots Dual Memo Block looks great on my desk and is functional and practical. It also comes with a coordinating pen. The memo block has 500 pages for all the different ways to say I love you. Special: $.95 with any purchase or MSRP: $12.95.
Suddenly Flowers – This beautiful bouquet of paper flowers is stunning. As my five year old daughter exclaimed, “WOW! So beautiful and they won’t die because they’re made of paper!” In a simple movement (just by lifting off the top box), transform a decorative gift box into a beautiful bouquet of meticulously crafted paper flowers with a meaningful message included.
