My parents taught me Valentine's Day is not just for your partner or spouse. I grew up learning that Valentine's Day is a time to celebrate the love you have for your family. We are teaching my daughter that same message and she is looking forward to sending Valentine’s Day Cards to everyone special to her. With a long list to cover and more in my own address book, making handmade cards for everyone isn't an option. This year we are turning to Treat.com for customized cards that will surely hit a soft spot when they are opened by our loved ones.
Making a card with Treat is easy and can be customized with text and photos. With a selection of hundreds of cards, you can easily find something for everyone on your list. The personalized cards will likely be keepsakes for our relatives and could easily be turned into a framed token of love. Begin the creation process by logging in to your free Treat account.
When my husband and I moved from our last house we carved our names into the tree in the backyard. The standard "Vinny + Heather" in a heart will be there forever but with out being able to go back and visit the tree we might not ever see it again. With that tree in mind I made him a card that will be the perfect accessory for a framed picture of our tree.
When I think of space and astronauts, it's usually for boys but my daughter has a great interest in science. Before she was three years old she could identify planets with picture flashcards. She is constantly blurting out new facts about the sun and we soak up the opportunity to teach her every chance we get. At a recent science museum visit she learned about the existence of unexplored space. She calls it, "the other side of space." With so many different ways to say I love you, my absolute favorite from my daughter is, "I love you to the other side of space." We say it to each other after story time before bed each night. An astronaut card proclaiming our love for our daughter to the other side of space is perfect for her!
My daughter loves bugs and our usual evening walk almost always ends with her begging to bring home a few new cricket friends. Her grandfather and Nana came to visit from Florida recently and my daughter enjoyed showing them her enthusiasm for crickets. I can't say her Nana enjoyed spending time with my daughter's bug friends but I know she will love her Valentine's Day card. Sending love with an "I love you more than crickets" is definitely going to make my daughter's grandparents smile.
We also made a card for one of my daughter's favorite teachers and she can't wait to deliver it to her at the classroom Valentine's Day party.
