A Loving Thanks–Valentines Day Thank Yous

A lot of emphasis gets placed on couples–husbands and wives, girlfriends and boyfriends–during the Valentines Day season, and while celebrating your sweetheart is great, we think that Valentines is more broadly about all of those whom you love, and who love you back. There’s a lot to be thankful for on the day of love–and a lot of love to share with a loving thank you! Remember the days of handing out school Valentines to classmates and teachers? There’s something sweet in that tradition: it celebrates all kinds of love–including the love you have for friends, colleagues, mentors, and your elders. Why not replicate that same sense of love sharing in your adult life? Bring sweets to your coworkers at work. Celebrate the checker at your supermarket or the teller at your bank with a sweet valentine or a heartfelt smile and a “Happy Valentines Day!” greeting. Call your faraway friends to wish them a happy heart day, and go for coffee with your best girlfriend. Give yourself a Valentines Day treat that will have you feeling great all month long: use today to get in touch with your heart, and all the people who make it happy.

Happy Valentines Day from us at Cardstore–we hope you have a happy heart today!



Mushy Made Easy – Valentine’s Day Cards and Messages

Finding that perfect Valentine’s Day message can help make the celebration special, but being creative enough to write something personalized and memorable is so difficult! Instead of stressing out about what you’ll write in your Valentine’s Day cards, why not choose a card that makes personalization easy? Cardstore has plenty of Valentine’s Day cards that make being romantic easy; all you have to do is fill in the blank! List some of their favorite things or your favorite memories together, add your initials to the card, and make it as personalized as possible to show how much of your love is in the card.

On the inside of the card, pick a quote from one of their favorite romantic movies to really make your love stand out! If she absolutely loves The Princess Bride, write “As you wish.” inside. If she’s a Tom Hanks fan, include a romantic quote from Sleepless in Seattle like, “I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like… magic”. For a more classic quote, use one from a great movie like Gone With the Wind and write, “You should be kissed. And often. And by someone who knows how”. And if all else fails, the best standby comes from Jerry Maguire with the quote “You had me at hello”.

There’s no easier and sweeter way to show your love this Valentine’s Day than with Valentine’s Day cards from Cardstore that you can personalize with details of your relationship. Think about their favorite romantic movies and add a line from the movie inside to really make them swoon this Valentine’s Day.

How-To: Valentine’s Day Party Invitations

Valentine’s Day has always seemed like the perfect excuse to host a party full of friends and loved ones, yet so few people really use this fantastic holiday to its full potential. Valentine’s Day is often celebrated only by couples or with the exchange of school Valentine’s Day cards between little ones, but to me this holiday featuring pinks, reds, hearts, DIY gifts, and chocolate galore just begs to be celebrated at a Valentine’s Day party between single friends, other couples, or a mix of everyone you know. Who knows, maybe some of your single friends will find love at your Valentine’s Day party?

Cardstore’s selection of Valentine’s Day party invitations feature the sweet and childlike love often associated with Valentine’s Day that make a perfect theme for a Valentine’s Day party for adults or for younger ones. Pick a design you like and add the details of the day to the invitation. Since February 14th falls on a Thursday this year, who not host a party that night or over the weekend? Be sure to include where and when the party will be, RSVP details, and whether your guests should bring something to the party. Send out these invitations as soon as possible yourself, or have Cardstore send the invitations for you, so friends can clear their calendars for your celebration.

Take 2 Tuesday: I Love Ewe

With Valentine’s Day just yesterday, it’s inevitable that love is on everyone’s mind. I’m not a big fan of the cheesiness of the holiday, but absolutely adore some of the witty takes on Valentine’s Day that I’ve been seeing more and more. When I found this I Love Ewe Valentine’s Holiday Card designed by Great Arrow Graphics, I thought it was perfect! Sweet, sassy, and with just the right amount of love, it’s even cuter when paired with an actual photo of some friendly sheep.
