Valentine’s Day is coming! Which basically means the kiddos have parties in their classrooms and get to eat massive amounts of candy hearts and pass out valentines to their classmates.
Ryan and I don’t really do Valentine’s Day – our dating anniversary is on the 15th and that has always been a special one to us so we just skip over the holiday and celebrate the next day.
I am, actually, a big fan of the holiday. My mom always made Valentine’s day special for us with little treats and notes and so Valentine’s day has always been more of a day to just tell the people you love that you love them rather than a super romantic red-long-stem-roses-fancy-dinner-out kind of celebration. It’s sweet and special and a good chance to share the love.
This year, with a handful of business projects and just as many family ones, I went the no-fuss route and ordered the kids’ classroom valentines from Minted. (Correction: I ordered the three younger kids their classroom valentines from Minted. Our oldest reminded me that passing out valentines in middle school is not a thing).
I spent way to long looking around at all the cute designs, then narrowed down my favorites to let the kids choose from.
Our 4th grader picked this wordsearch card.
Our 2nd grader went the shark route (I adore these!).
The note on the order form says that these are not big enough to mail, but I didn’t realize how perfectly tiny they are in real life! The cards and envelopes are truly mini and perfect for passing out to friends. We’ll pop a few in the mail to cousins and out of town friends and just stick them in a bigger envelope so they make it through the mail.
The last day to order to ensure Valentine delivery is Sunday February 7th (with rush shipping) so make sure you pop over to minted asap to place your order.
