Walgreens is an excellent place to pick up a Hallmark Valentine's Day Card this year! I was asked to participate in the #HallmarkAtWalgreens #CareEnough campaign, sponsored by Hallmark at Walgreens. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.
How beautiful that there is a day set aside for lovers to put down in tangible words how we just can't live without the other! If there is any holiday that deserves a hand-selected card that will be cherished and held and re-read on lonely nights, it's Valentine's Day, and picking out the perfect card couldn't be easier when you stick with Hallmark! Choosing Hallmark DOES matter and loved ones DO take notice when that Hallmark logo is on the back, and no matter what you want to say, you can find the perfect card at Walgreens!
My husband and I have a delightful relationship, one that is easy and uncomplicated, and I soon knew he was the one for me because it was like that from the start. It is really a simple kind of love, one that isn't testy or jealous or built upon years of breakups and hard-to-describe feelings and dating history. It is an honest and child-like kind of love, totally void of sappy fluff, so if I ever came home and found a trail of rose petals and candles lit, I would laugh and be sure that there was something quite un-characteristic going on. Our relationship is more like one of little words and authentic kindness.
Still, I wanted to do something a little different this year, and instead of making a card, I thought I'd pin down just how I feel about us with a Hallmark card -- a real and authentic one with words I would actually say. Emails and texts can be sweet, but cards will last forever. Walgreens always has a great selection of the best Hallmark Valentine's Day cards, so I started there, but still wondered if I'd find the perfect card that didn't feel fake or forced. I browsed through a handful that were all beautifully written and smartly designed, but when I saw this card, I thought it was PERFECT. I read the inside and didn't need to look any further.
This Valentine's Day I decided to go with a fun themed display to really make the day extra special! Since we both just love getting mail, I'm going with a "Special Delivery" theme and including some additional treats to go alongside this beautiful Hallmark Valentine's Day card.
To put my idea into action, I needed a few more supplies. The great thing about getting a Hallmark Valentine's Day card at Walgreens is that you can pick up everything else you need while you're there! Along with paper towels, batteries, and a gallon of milk, I also found some ribbon and chocolates for my Valentine gift! I used a few feet of Hallmark ribbon and a square of packing paper, which I rolled into a cone and folded down on one end to keep it shaped.
I filled the paper with some fresh flowers and slid everything into this red tin mailbox for a cute and special delivery package! Wouldn't it be fun to fill the mailbox completely full with love letters, boxes of chocolates, and other small gifts? I think the tin mailbox is 10x cuter than any wrapping paper or gift bag, especially for a man who isn't into all the girly Valentine decor.
Remember how I said that as soon as I read the inside of this card, the search was over? This might sound cliché, but I really couldn't have said it better myself. I love that this card doesn't gush on and on about love and that it doesn't even rhyme. It's filled with words that I would actually say and words that I really mean. I think my husband will treasure and harbor this and pull it out when life gets him down. It can be an uplifting boost, and in a way that a text or an email can't.
I'm still pretty surprised at how quick and easy this gift was to put together. I was in and out of Walgreens in minutes, armed with everything I needed for Valentine's Day this year. Be like me and save yourself a runaround, especially when you visit early and beat those crowds! Set out today to stop by Walgreens and enjoy a few minutes to yourself while you browse through dozens of exquisite Hallmark cards on your hunt for the perfect one!
Happy Valentine's Day, lovers!
