Valentine’s Day is always a day that creeps up on me and I have usually forgotten to get a card. My husband and I don’t really go all out for the day but we always exchange cards (and kisses). I have always been a fan of the great selection of cards that Hallmark has for any occasion and Valentine’s Day is no exception. So look below for some fantastic last-minute Valentine’s Day gift ideas for that someone special.
Some fun facts about Valentine’s Day ♥
- Approximately 145 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged industry-wide (not including packaged kids’ valentines for classroom exchanges), making Valentine’s Day the second-largest holiday for giving greetings cards.
- In addition to the United States, Valentine’s Day is celebrated in Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France Australia, Denmark and Italy.
- Hallmark first offered Valentine’s Day cards in 1913 and began producing them in 1916.
- According to the National Retail Federation, the average person celebrating Valentine’s Day spent $143 (US) in 2018.
With a full array of cards for any budget and for any type of love you wish to declare, Hallmark has you covered. From their wonderfully fun Paper Wonder cards to your every day beautifully written cards. I love the pop-up cards because they are fun and different but I also always love the cards that say exactly how I am feeling when I choose one for my husband.
They also have some great gifts for close friends and family as well so even if you don’t have someone special, Hallmark can still help you celebrate the ones you love!
They have dishes for candy and socks for feet and I think one of my favourite things is the Story of Us Card Keeper box. I am a hoarder of all the cards I have ever gotten from my husband over the years and they currently reside in two shoe boxes so this card keeper box is perfect for me!
The Story of Us card keeper is even showcased in the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, the Story of Us that will be airing on the W Network. Check your local listings!
Whatever you are looking for to celebrate that someone special, Hallmark has got something for everyone on your list!
