Thanks to Pinterest I’ve been thinking about what to do for Valentine’s Day this year for several weeks already. Since it’s the baby’s first Valentine’s Day, we need to do something super fun. I love helping the boys write out their Valentines. Being able to keep one for their scrapbooks and watching their little writing improve every year is wonderful. This year though, I also wanted to send far away family and friends a little “love day” love. Using pictures from our recent trip back up north and including a brief little note to each recipient will help to make the notes all feel personal and let the recipients know we’re thinking of them. A couple of our family members and friends are dealing with some serious health issues right now so I know something like this would bring a much needed smile to their faces. But I just finished (ok almost finished!) hand making 75 first birthday invitations. If I took on making Valentine’s Day cards too, it may be next year before they’re done. I needed something that was still adorable but helped make the process quicker and easier for me to actually get these cards done.
Enter Treat.com. Being a member of the Shutterfly and tinyprints family lets me know I can trust the quality of the products and that the prices will be reasonable. Treat takes the creative process another step further. You can choose the wording from the Message Library or come up with something all on your own to include in your card. Another Treat bonus? You can set up reminders with them so you never miss another birthday, anniversary or other important day to your family and friends. For someone like me who forgets everything, this tool is invaluable. You can even add a gift card to your card so you don’t need to leave the house in search of the “perfect” gift!
Treat has got adorable Valentine’s Day cards and it’s not too late to get started on making some yourself. You can even download the app for your iPhone to make it even easier to make your cards! Take a look at a couple of my favorites:
This one’s perfect for teachers since the boy’s school mascot is an owl!
Perfect for daddy’s young and old…
What boy wouldn’t want to be a daredevil??
There are also some that don’t need a personal picture
Even dads can get in on the action (and score some major brownie points!!)
And now for the giveaway! One of my lucky readers is going to win five free cards from Treat!!!
