*closed* Pear Tree Greetings Kid's Valentines Review & Giveaway

When I was a kid, Valentine's Day was a pretty big deal. It came just perfectly between Christmas and my birthday in March, so it was the perfect buffer holiday. It's like someone a long long time ago knew that we kids would need another chance soon after to give and receive! Although I do remember the preparations more than the actual day. We got to take time out of the school day to decorate our paper bag "mailboxes" with red and pink construction paper hearts and stickers. I remember going to the store with my mom to pick out my valentines, usually brightly colored cartoon character cards. I loved sitting at the dining room table, signing my name to each card and carefully folding and sealing them with foil heart stickers. Sometimes my mom even bought me a bag of chocolate hearts or lollipops to tape to my cards.

These days, the way Valentine's Day is celebrated in schools hasn't changed much. Kids still spend time decorating a festive "mailbox" to tape to the front of their desks and they still need to find the perfect cards to pass out to their friends.

Recently, Pear Tree Greetings sent me some samples of their line of Kids Valentine's Day cards. Wait til you see them! These are not the same old valentines that we had as kids. These are a whole new kind of adorable!


Pear Tree is really getting the kids involved in these cards. They can be completely personalized with names and photos of your child. They've even made these cool coloring cards! I love that they're so interactive!


These are fun, creative, quality cards. As always with Pear Tree Greetings, these valentines are bright and vibrant on thick card stock. I have been very impressed with the consistency and quality of their product and I highly recommend them. They also have some great variety packs too! If you are tired of the same old store bought valentines and looking for something unique, consider buying from Pear Tree. You will be thrilled with the cards you receive!

They also have a fun selection of Valentine's Day stickers, perfect for sealing envelopes!
