It’s a day devoted to love. Whether that’s romantic love, love for family members, or sharing a laugh with friends, Hallmark provides Valentine’s Day greeting cards and gifts for the widest range of relationships in the industry.
“You might think that most valentine cards are exchanged by people in romantic relationships,” says Clint Schlosser, Hallmark greetings business analyst. “Actually, about 2/3 of the more than 142 million cards given at Valentine’s Day are given to children, family members and friends.”
This year, Hallmark offers 1,200 different Valentine’s Day card designs – with a broad selection of cards for family relationships – and a wide array of gifts that will make hearts of all ages happy, including:
Sarah Jessica Parker Collection — This beautiful new collection, available exclusively at Hallmark Gold Crown® stores, pairs vintage artwork from the Hallmark archives with modern touches and embellishments. The line includes 12 cards just for Valentine’s Day – with choices for friendships and love relationships. Parker collaborated with the Hallmark creative team on design themes and messages for the cards, opting for simple, authentic and heartfelt messages.
Suddenly Flowers — Surprise a loved one with a Suddenly Flowers bouquet that never wilts. Just lift the lid off the designed box to reveal a beautiful bouquet of carefully crafted paper flowers with a sweet message for a Valentine.
Card Presenters — For Valentine's Day, people often deliver their cards in person, especially for love relationships. So Hallmark offers a collection of Card Presenters – elegant and beautiful designs with locking clasps, ribbons and other adornments to enrich the experience of hand-delivering a romantic card.
Magic Message Reveal Heart — This heart-shaped gold box features a crystal-clear window. When the recipient holds the heart in their hands, the message "Always remember I love you" magically appears in the window.
itty bittys® — Hallmark itty bittys, available exclusively at Hallmark Gold Crown stores, may just be four inches tall, but they’ll bring big smiles to little ones on Valentine’s Day and beyond:
- Two limited-edition characters just for Valentine’s Day: Disney® Happy Hearts Mickey and Minnie Mouse
- Two new limited-edition characters: Disney® Donald and Daisy Duck
- Available year round: Members of the Justice League™ including Wonder Woman, Flash, Superman™ and Batman™, the cast of Wizard of Oz™, Winnie the Pooh and friends, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, and many beloved Disney Princesses and other characters, such as Mike and Sulley from Monsters, Inc.
For the young at heart, Hallmark’s popular techno-plush characters also bring smiles. Find these furry friends at Hallmark Gold Crown stores:
