Be my Valentine: cards, gifts, and freebies

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. Maybe it’s my love of chocolate that puts it in my top 5 category.

Buying Valentine cards can get pricy if you have a lot of people, or kids, to buy for. Take advantage of some of the offers to get those costs under control.  Today I got an adorable personalized mug for only $1. I also got several Valentine’s cards for free.

Below are a few of my favorite offers for Valentine’s Day.

Vistaprint: Head over to Vistaprint to get 10 FREE Valentine’s Day Note Cards. There are so many cute designs to choose from. The cards are free but you will have to pay around $5 for shipping and processing.


York Photo’s also has some of the best Valentine’s I’ve seen. I got a custom mug for only $1. Plus, 40 free prints.

York Photo: Head over to get your $1 Valentine’s Mug plus, 40 free prints. Use code 1MUG at checkout. I love my mug, I can’t wait to see it!

York Photo$20 Fleece Blanket, plus 40 free prints. I’m not so sure about this one, but I know it’s the perfect gift for someone out there!

York Photo: $2 Grocery Tote, plus 40 free prints. The grandparents are going to love their new re-usable shopping bags!

Canvas People: A personalized phone case is an awesome gift idea but can be pricey. Canvas People has a great offer. You can get a personalized case for as low as $29.95 with free shipping.

Valentine’s Crayon Hearts: This is one of the best DIY projects I did with my daughter. It was so easy and fun. I used the Wilton’s Heart Mold for the project. The heart mold is on sale at Amazon right now. Perfect timing.
