Hallmark Canada - Valentine's Day 2018 #LoveHallmarkCA

Did you know that the origins of Valentine's Day date back to the third century? According to Roman legend, Valentinus was imprisoned for his Christian beliefs and sentenced to death. While in jail, he restored the sight of his jailer’s blind daughter. On the eve of his death, Valentinus wrote a note to her and signed, “From Your Valentine.” He died the next day on February 14, 269 A.D. Centuries later Romans would honour Juno, the pagan goddess of love and marriage, on the 14th of February when men would draw women’s names and court them for marriage. Around 498 A.D., Pope Gelasius declared February 14 as St. Valentine’s Day to honor the martyr Valentinus and to end the pagan celebration. Today, approximately 144 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged industry-wide, and this does not include packaged kids’ valentines!

This Valentine's Day, Hallmark Canada has once again made it easy to share the love with heartfelt greetings and gifts for all of your special loved ones. Their Signature collection of greeting cards, as always, offers a beautiful selection of quality designs. Of particular note is Hallmark's new Disney card collection. And I have a little soft spot for the golden dinosaur embossed card, one I know my nephew would love. These are cards that are a gift in and of themselves, that's how beautiful they are.

For those who like to journal or sketch, then you must definitely check out Hallmark's Signature Multicolour Brushstrokes with Gold Dots Journal. It is filled with 160 blank pages and features a colourful acrylic cover with gold foil accents that adds a comfortable weight and durability to this fashionable journal. I also love the Signature Tri-Fold Purse Notepad. This 75-sheet memo pad comes with a mini pencil and fits perfectly in a purse, tote bag or car glove compartment. It features an abstract painted pastel heart and gold foil accented cover design, and it includes 12 mini cards with super sweet messages that fit in a side pouch. It also matches perfectly with Hallmark's Signature gold heart gift bag, seen above, complete with matching gold beads on the handles.

And of course, we can't forget about all the stuffed cuteness Hallmark has to offer. In addition to their itty bitties and other stuffed toys, Hallmark brings you Cu-Pug, a plush pooch with gold lamé wings and a chiffon sash. They also have an incredibly soft Sweet Singin' Elephant that sings "You Are My Sunshine". He's so cute, I just want to cuddle him all day long!

  1. And a very Happy Valentine's Day to you too. I was surprised not to find a giveaway from Hallmark for this holiday, I haven't seen one anywhere. A shame as they do have some nice things again. I especially like the singing elephant with the hearts on the soles of it's feet.
