Hard to believe that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. It’s always extra special here because Liam’s birthday is the day before. I love a week with so much to celebrate! I want to share a few of the people I am buying Valentine’s cards for this year and why I think it’s important to show all different kinds of people how much you love them! We love American Greetings cards, which I always grab at Tom Thumb. Read below so you can grab some, too!


Sharing Love with Everyone for Valentines Day

Your spouse: With 2 kids, sometimes, showing each other love can come last. Not because we don’t love each other, but because sometimes we show love by cleaning bottles instead of the other person doing it or taking out the trash, haha. One thing I think is nice to do is find a really sweet card to give to your significant other. I love to have the card on Andrew’s nightstand or even by his sink in the bathroom for him to see first thing in the morning. Maybe along with his favorite candy or some other kind of treat.

Your friends: Our friends are so important to us, right? So, why not send a friend a special card on Valentine’s Day to show them that you love them and are thinking of them. I know getting cards in the mail from my friends always makes my day.

Your kids: Growing up, my mom always did really special stuff for us for Valentine’s Day. With Liam last year, I made him a basket full of cute little toys, fun coloring stuff, and a card. Sure, I know he can’t read them yet, but I actually save all the cards and put them in his baby book for him to see when he’s older.

Other special people: So many other special people need to feel the love, too! I think getting cards for teachers (from your kiddos), your own parents, or even co-workers is a great way to just show people you care.

To grab all these cards this year, I went to Tom Thumb and stocked up on my favorite brand: American Greetings. I have been purchasing American Greetings cards for years and years. American Greetings always has such a great selection. I find it so fun to read through the cards and imagine the people I am buying them for. Giving gifts and cards is my love language! There are seriously so many choices, and you will absolutely find many choices of cards for each person on your list—and then some!

Now you can save $5 when you buy $10 worth of American Greetings cards!

Are you a big card giver? Who are you giving Valentine’s Day cards to this year?

      I have been sending valentines cards to my friends for years. I think it’s important to tell them how much you love and appreciate them and it’s a great opportunity to do so.

      I like any excuse to send cards. Valentine’s Day is a great way to just send anyone you care about a little reminder that your thinking of them 🙂

      I love giving cards! I think there’s something so special about receiving a surprise piece of mail. Sending Valentine’s cards is one of my favorite traditions.

      One of my goals this year is to stay more connected with friends. I love the idea of “Galentines”. Sending your friends some love on valentines day.

      It is sad that this habit of sending greeting cards has waned. I still love getting a card for any occasion – birthday, Valentines, Mother’s Day, Christmas! They are more personal and real keepsakes. I keep all the cards my kids make for me. I wish they’d still make some even if they are grown ups now.

      I can’t believe we are already talking Valentine’s Day celebrations. WoW! Welcome to the new decade. Those are cute cards too.
