Valentine’s Day Cards: Forgot the Ho Ho Ho? Send the XOXO
There are many reasons you may want to send Valentine’s Day Cards to your family and friends: You may have a big announcement to make (pink or blue?), you may have a too-cute-to-not-share photo, you may just be nostalgic for all those little photo cards we’d swap in grade-school. Or, you may be like me and feel guilty for not sending baby shower Thank You cards yet…or the Christmas cards…or the Happy New Year cards… Look. It’s been a busy past 6 months! ESPECIALLY around “The Holidays.”
So, if you find yourself in my boat, a fun solution to rid yourself of The Card Guilt is to use this more quiet space in the calendar to send a love note to your loved ones. Regardless, everyone will be oh-so-pleased to get actual mail (not junk or bills) and give a big smile from seeing your kiddo’s sweet face.
At BabyPage, we’re obviously pretty obsessed with photos. So we’ve also pinned a ton of great ideas on Pinterest and listed some below if you’d like to do a Valentine-centric photoshoot for your cards, too! (And yes, I did kiss my baby on the bootie with red lipstick and put a pair of angel wings on her for this shoot. Will she kill me when she’s a teenager? Probably. But right now, it’s so worth it! And you better believe those photos are all going in my BabyPage baby book, too!)
