I know some people don’t like Valentine’s Day, they think it’s too commercial or they don’t have a special someone. Well, I do like Valentine’s Day, just like everything else, it is what you make of it. For me it’s about my family and friends, nieces, nephews, Godchildren and of course my husband. I love to send Valentine cards with my name spelled backwards or in numbers and sometimes I put a little treat in with it. I have always sent my Mom a Valentine-I usually send her one that would come from a child, something that is cute and funny. She loves it. So here are some of my favorite places for Valentine’s Day cards and gifts, check them out and maybe if you are one of those who isn’t a fan…you will be!
Minted-An amazing on-line community of independent designers and artists that have created beautiful invitations for all occasions, artwork and prints. And for Valentine’s Day they have classroom Valentine’s, custom Valentine’s and unique gift ideas. I love the idea of their customized Valentine cards, especially if you didn’t get a chance to do a Christmas card.
Viv & Ingrid-A dynamic duo of creative women that design beautiful jewelry. They have great pieces for a friend, a mom, a sister, niece or Godchild. The earrings come in adorable fabric pouches or on printed keepsake cards. They have a shop in Oxford Hall in Berkeley, California or you can order on-line.
So Vintage Chic-An Etsy Shop out of Seattle that sells beautiful, handmade linen pillows and tea towels. For Valentine’s Day they have the cutest pillows and they don’t just have to be used for Valentine’s Day, they can stay out all year round.
I hope I have given some of you a great idea or two for this Valentine’s Day for a loved one or maybe even a little something for you!
*I was not compensated for any of this, these are truly some of my favorite places to shop.
