The spotlight is on love for Valentine’s Day.  It’s a time filled with so many emotions that can be hard to express. 

Go the extra mile with your greeting cards by adding a more personal message to the recipient of the card.

General Tips

  1. Make your own Valentine’s Day Card. You don’t have to be creative to make your own card, but it does send the message that you planned ahead and took the time to create a handmade card.
  2. Keep it personal. If you are creating a handmade card, use a quote or poem that mean something to you and the recipient of the card. This is the time to refer to your Valentine with a pet name and really tell them how you feel.
  3. Take it to the next level. Leave little candies with messages to the recipient in the days leading to Valentine’s Day.
