The 2014 Hallmark Valentine Collection

Valentine’s Day has been trendy since 498 A.D. when Pope Gelasius declared February 14th as St. Valentine’s Day. Since then, this trendy holiday has been an opportunity for us to remind those around us that we love them. I recently learned that Valentine’s Day ranks 2nd among the card-sending holidays. There are 142 million cards that are exchanged industry wide. This is not surprising since it is fun to share love with others. Personally, we look forward to the Hallmark Valentine’s releases each year. Hallmark has offered trendy Valentine’s Day cards for 101 years, including more than 1200 different greeting cards for the occasion. This year, we are excited about their new releases that include the Sarah Jessica Parker Collection, Hallmark Signature Collection, Suddenly flowers gift boxes, and itty bittys®. Let me share the product descriptions, our personal photos and thoughts, and then the opportunity for one of our trendy readers to win a Valentine’s Day gift pack from Hallmark!

Here are the product descriptions:
"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 for Valentine's Day. Parker collaborated with the Hallmark creative team on design themes and messages for the cards, opting for simple, authentic and heartfelt messages. View the collection here.

Hallmark Signature Collection: Celebrate in style with our new Hallmark Signature Collection Valentine's Day cards. Each card is handcrafted with beautiful papers, rich textures and unheard of embellishments, making each card extra special. They're stylish. They're sophisticated. They're truly unique, just like a signature. View the collection here.

Suddenly Flowers: Surprise your sweetheart with a bouquet that never wilts. Remove the top of the decorative gift box, and watch it transform into a beautiful bouquet of carefully-crafted paper flowers, complete with a sweet message for your Valentine. View the collection here.

itty bittys®: Hallmark itty bittys may just be five inches tall, but they'll bring big smiles to the love in your life on Valentine's Day and any day. Deliver a heart-y smile with the help of Wonder Woman, Superman(tm) and more! View the collection here."
In our personal experience, we fell in love with these products.  Let me share our experience.
The Sarah Jessica Parker Collection is a superstar product line because the collection features vintage artwork from the Hallmark archives, but adds modern touches. We love these high end cards that are beautiful and memorable. We can definitely see the Sara Jessica Parker touch in the designs. For instance, the trendy high heel shoe and the hearts below are gorgeous.
The Hallmark Signature Collection is another line of fantastic greeting cards. We love the handcrafted cards that use good quality papers and embellishments. For instance, my little boy loves the felt "Squeally" card below and I am in love with the golden coach card.

The Suddenly Flowers was a complete surprise to me. I couldn’t believe that anyone could create such beautiful and intricate bouquet. We love the beautiful bouquets with colorful flowers. My son can’t wait to give this to his teacher because he thinks that she will love it. He likes the element of surprise when the flowers pop out of the box when the lid is removed. Check out the gorgeous bouquet below!
Finally, trendy moms will have fun presenting little ones with Hallmark itty bittys. These 5” tall characters are adorable and come in many popular characters. For instance, we received the trendy Super Man and Wonder Woman itty bittys. My son is in preschool and “pretend play” is important to his development. He loves playing with these adorable dolls.  Here is a photo of him playing in his swing and giggling with his itty bittys.
We love the Hallmark 2014 Valentine’s Day releases!
