Valentine’s Day Myth #2: Off-the-shelf Valentines are the Only Choice for Kids

Nothing irritates the moms at Pear Tree more than having to buy boxed valentines off the shelf for our kids’ classmates. What, we ask, do Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have to do with Valentine’s Day?

Those of us who work for Pear Tree, of course, like to get creative and make our valentines a little more personal—even if they’re just for kids. Because if we do it right, the kids have really cool cards to hand out at school, and we might just have an adorable greeting to send to friends and relatives.

Some of our favorite dual-purpose kids Valentine’s Day cards include interactive valentines, such as our Caterpillar Finger Puppet that kids can play with, or the Up and Away Airplane that can be folded into a paper airplane. We also love the kids’ valentines that feature a photo of your child, such as the Starry Super Hero or Queen of Hearts valentines.

As the marketing copywriter for Pear Tree, Cathy knows how intimidating writing a Christmas card or thank you note can be. When she is not writing, she is busy gardening, doing DIY projects around the house or trying to keep her three teenage boys in line.
