Ooh la la…Valentine’s Day !

 

My favorite holiday of the year! I love everything about it… what can I say, I’m a sucker for romance. As you probably know, one of the biggest traditions that many people have every year is to give Valentine’s Day cards. But I must confess… I have a bad habit of always forgetting to grab a card ahead of time. Maybe I just get too swept up in all the love in the air to remember?

Fortunately, my problem was solved this year when I used the Same Day Pickup service at Walgreens to personalize a card and pick it up in about an hour. All you have to do is choose a photo from your online Walgreens Photo account (a personal touch they’ll love), pick a template (plenty to choose from), create a message on the inside and outside of the card, and then select a store near you for pickup! Even better, Folded Cards are on sale this week for 99¢ (use coupon code LOVE99 at checkout), AND they come with an envelope. What more could you ask for?

I also like to give a small gift with my card. They’re only 99¢ so why not? Traditional pairings always work great- roses, chocolates, or a nice wine.

What are some other ideas for Valentine’s Day gift pairings that you’ve given and they’ve loved?

I hope you enjoy my favorite holiday. And if you’re a procrastinator too…hopefully you’ll like your last minute Folded Card even more! : )

XOXO,

Marina, Walgreens designer

    I live in a different city than my parents, and today I used Same Day Pickup to send them a Valentines Card to a store just down the street from them. They LOVED it!! I’m now in the running for daughter of the year :) Same Day Pickup is wonderful!
