Celebrate Your Love with Hallmark (giveaway ends 2/6/13)


Hallmark Valentine's Day Cards

When you think of Valentine’s Day, what comes to mind? For me the first thing I think of are those cute little Valentine’s Day cards that kids give out to their friends and classmates. I remember doing that when I was little. I also remember helping my kids fill our Valentine’s Day cards for their classmates when they were little too.

Other things that come to mind when I think about Valentine’s Day is exchanging cards with my hubby, heart shaped boxes of chocolates and roses – pretty much all the cliche things.

When I think of cards the first thing that comes to mind is Hallmark. There are plenty of other card companies on the market, but there is just something special about Hallmark cards.

If you have been card shopping recently you might have seen a few of their Valentine’s Day cards. Here are just a few of the various types of Valentine’s Day cards that Hallmark offers consumers.

Hallmark Expressions

Special Delivery Card Presenters: Beautiful cards deserve a beautiful presentation! Hallmark’s new Card Presenters feature unique designs, embellishments and other eye-catching additions sure to make your valentine even more excited to see the card within (included with the presenter).

Signature Greetings: With exquisite textures, premium quality paper and relevant messages, Signature Collection greetings offer a distinctive way to celebrate Valentine’s Day…with style.

Light Reveal Cards: These all new greetings use light to reveal the message! Lots of fun and a great way to remind them they’re loved over and over.

I have a few Valentine’s Day cards from Hallmark that were sent to me to review. I love the Light Reveal Cards! The one I have has the word “Love” that lights up when you press the button. It doesn’t light up all at once but rather it lights up a little bit at a time to finally reveal the whole word. I tried to take a photo of it in the dark to show readers how it lit up but it didn’t turn out well.

I also love the Special Delivery Card Presenters. They go above and beyond just a simple card. They are embellished with 3D accents and much more. Take for example the card I have that comes with a mini-chalkboard attached to the front and a small chalk pencil (also attached) that you can use to write a special message with on the chalkboard. How cool is that?

I also have another card with 3D elements like a ribbon, heart and paper clip.

Hallmark Card

One of the cards I have has what appears to be a handwritten message on the inside written on a separate piece of lined notebook paper. It looks as if I had written it myself (except neater – my handwriting is sloppy due to Carpal Tunnel).

These are truly special cards that will become cherished keepsakes. I know if I was given one of these lovely cards I could not toss it out after the holiday. I would want to hold on to it forever. They are truly very beautiful.

Speaking of beautiful, have you seen the Blooming Expressions with music flowers?

Blooming Expressions with Music surprises someone special with a flower that blooms to deliver messages of love and gratitude – again and again — at the press of a button. The new Blooming Expressions also include music that plays as the bloom opens, creating a touching and heartfelt experience!

I have one of them on my desk and I love it! It looks like a single red rose in a vase with the words “You Make Life Beautiful” elegantly written across the front of the vase. When you press the button soft music plays as the flower gently blooms revealing a special message inside (Love You Always).

Blooming Expressions with Music

I tried to video tape it but my phone is not cooperating with me at this time (long story – need to make yet another trip to our cell phone provider).

The Blooming Expression with Music is a gift and card rolled into one. You can display it year round as a constant reminder of your beloved.

All of these products are available at a Hallmark retailer near you. If you would like to learn more or find the nearest retail location visit www.Hallmark.com. You can also find Hallmark on Facebook and Twitter.
