Spread the Love this Valentine's Day with Hallmark {Review & Prize Pack Giveaway}

Hallmark logo
When it comes to Valentine's Day, it's always fun to get (or give) a creative, unique gift... but there is also something to be said for the classics. After all, they're classic for a reason, right?

But where is the happy medium? The spot between the standard gift of a bouquet of (extremely expensive) roses and the one-of-a-kind gift of a full size ice sculpture carved to look like your sweetie?

As it has been for decades and decades, the answer lies with Hallmark. Whether you're celebrating Valentine's Day with your sweetheart, your family or your friends, Hallmark has February 14th covered for each and every one of them.

valentine's day gifts

While Hallmark has been known for helping people everywhere express their feelings for the past century, they have managed to introduce new items to their 2014 collection that are adorably perfect and just in time for Valentine's Day.

As I can't think of a single Hallmark product that hasn't elicited a smile or an Awwww! over the years, I was excited to see what they could have possibly added to their line to continue that tradition.

Hallmark Valentine's Day

Awwww!

See? They went and did it again.

Most known for their amazingly huge collection of cards, Hallmark has stylish and beautiful options of all kinds — whether you're looking for something vintage, modern, simple, authentic, sincere, stylish, fun or more, they have it.

I love the way that the new Sarah Jessica Parker Collection adds just the right amount of sophistication and fashion, resulting in cards that are attractive as well as refined. Everything from the embellishments to the glitz and glam go just right with the heartfelt messages inside!

Hallmark SJP cards

At the same time, the Hallmark Signature Collection cards make me swoon with their creativity and uniqueness. The colors, textures, papers, handcrafted touches... you just can't get anything more amazing!

What kid wouldn't flip over receiving a card like this that, in essence, is so much more than just a card?

Or, for the more grown up Valentine's Day sentiment, I adore the stylish sexiness that Hallmark has managed to incorporate into their Signature Collection. The gorgeous papers, the added glitter, the black lining in the red envelope, the way that the matchbox really opens... va-va-voom!

Hallmark valentine card

When it comes to finding just the right gift to accompany your card (or to be delivered all on its own), Hallmark has us covered there as well.

Instead of spending a fortune on flowers that will inevitably fade and wilt, why not surprise your family and friends with an everlasting bouquet? Hallmark's Suddenly Flowers are the exact way to do so all in one single box.

Simply remove the top and the beautiful bouquet of carefully-crafted paper flowers (complete with a sweet message for your Valentine) pops open for endless days of admiration. No watering, no planting, no picking off dead petals, just bright, cheerful flowers showing your loved one how much you care.

Hallmark Suddenly Flowers

Retailing for $14.95 and available in various styles, colors and messages, I love the way that these Suddenly Flowers have the ability to brighten someone's day... and extend that into a week, month or more!

Even better, by simply pressing down on the top flower and sliding the box top back on, the entire bouquet can be closed up for storage or to simply set aside for another day (at which point your recipient will again be reminded of your wonderful thoughtfulness)!

Finally, for the young, whimsical side in all of us, Hallmark itty bittys are the 5" tall, plush replicas of a wide variety of characters that we all know and love.

Why not bring a smile to the love in your life this Valentine's Day (and any day, really) by surprising them with Mickey Mouse, Wonder Woman, Superman, Disney Princesses, Mike and Sully, Winnie the Pooh, and many more!

Hallmark itty bittys

Retailing for $6.95, I just don't think that these little stuffed pals can get any more adorable!

They're just the right size that a child could play with them or an adult could happily display them on their desk, on a shelf, in their car or pretty much anywhere. Each one has a sweet embroidered face and the little details that go into the bodies and costumes are just right!

Hallmark itty bittys review

Through thick and thin, the good times and the bad, it's important to know that life is a special occasion, and Hallmark can help drive the emotional connections that make all your relationships meaningful.

This Valentine's Day, be sure to visit Hallmark.com and your local Gold Crown Store to pick up just the right card, gift and more that will perfectly express your feelings with the ones you love. You can't go wrong with so many amazing options!

And, thanks to the generosity of Hallmark, one person will be able to share their love this year and beyond, because...

One lucky person will win a Hallmark Prize Pack containing an assortment of greeting cards, a Suddenly Flower and two itty bittys!

Sample; actual prize pack will vary
