10 Cute Valentine’s Day Wording Ideas

Valentine’s Day is such a sweet time of the year for classmates and friends to share their appreciation for each other with nice Valentine’s Day cards. Our design team always enjoys coming up with new, sweet ideas that moms and their kids will love to hand out. Not only are our classroom valentines personalized by you, but they also feature cute sayings other than the typical “Happy Valentine’s Day”. These valentines match the saying and the style of the card; like “love bites valentine” with shark bites on the card and “you’re a slam dunk valentine” in a basketball design and shape. These 10 Valentine’s Day wording ideas will have classmates giggling and their moms thinking how cool you are!

Valentine’s Day Outfit Ideas

We love coming up with Valentine’s Day ideas year after year, and this year we are helping you gather clothing ideas to get the perfect Valentine’s Day photo of your darling kiddos! Our What to Wear for your Family Photos series were such a hit during the holidays we just had to share with you these cute Valentine’s Day ideas. The inspiration for these three outfit ideas came from our Valentine’s Day photo cards.

1. Not-so-valentines-y. For this Valentine’s Day style we used soft pastel colors with hints of gold shimmer in the shoes to create a not-so-valentines-y look. Also, add accessories like hats and mittens to create a warm and cozy photo. Our XOXO Foil Look Valentine’s Day Photo Cards pair nicely with this look!Valentine's Day IdeasYou can get this look here.

Choosing Valentines – Let the Kids Decide!

Kids don’t often get to have much input into Mom’s purchases, but for the valentines they hand out at school, they love to make the decision. Kids feel that their valentines say a lot about them, and we agree. It’s all about matching your child’s personality and the things they love to the right card. We’ve grouped these kids’ valentine card ideas so all you have to do is match the kids to the cards!

Watch this! Valentine’s Day Photo Ideas


We invited a bunch of kids to Pear Tree for a photo shoot, and created this video so we could show you some fun photography tips for Valentine’s Day that you can recreate at home. We had the kids dress in Valentine’s Day colors of pink and red, then created three different white backdrops that would make them stand out. Then we put the photos in our favorite new Valentine’s Day cards to see how they’d look!

Set a chair or fluffy rug in front of it for kids to sit on and you’ve got yourself a set for the photo shoot. Props like heart-shaped suckers are sure to bring smiles.

Photography Tips – Kids Valentine’s Day Photo Shoot

I love sending Valentine’s Day cards. And I love taking photos. So, we decided to have an office Valentine’s Day photo shoot with our own kids. Fun day in the office, right? Then, we decided it’d be fun to make a video to share the results with you—not just our cute Valentine’s Day photos, but also a few photography tips on achieving some of those big smiles we all love. For added fun, we threw in some behind-the-scenes video footage because, as a photographer, I always wonder what the real ‘set’ looks like! So check out the video and the tips below to make your Valentine’s Day cards sparkle. 🙂

Now here are some photography tips and ideas to help you achieve the actual photos you saw in the video.

Valentine's Day Photo IdeasFor our main background, we painted a 4×4 section of plywood with chalkboard paint. Chalkboard paint wasn’t entirely necessary since we didn’t write on it, we just liked the black background against our garland. And speaking of the garland, you can get it as a free printable! It’s easy to cut out and a fun activity to do with your kids.

Photography Tip: Try placing something on your head and asking the child to blow it off. Just about anything works. I used a paper heart. It should either be something the child will physically be able to blow off, or that with a slight tilt of your head, they’ll think they did! Also setting the child on a box or a crate typically keeps them in one spot, long enough at least for a few quick photos!

Valentine's Day Photo IdeasFor this background, we used two sets of gold metallic curtains, right on top of each other. Inexpensive, and they come in many colors!

Photography Tip: Giving kids a prop like sunglasses allows them to interact and play with something, which keeps them occupied long enough for photos. And even the motions of taking off the glasses can be really cute!

Kids Valentine Ideas: Interactive Cards

It’s not just a valentine. It’s a puppet! It’s a plane! It’s a lollipop holder! Handing out valentines at school is a lot more fun when your valentine does something nobody else’s does. We had just one thought in mind when designing Pear Tree’s Valentine’s Day collection this year—what would kids love to get their hands on?

Valentine Candy Cards -- Stylish Mustache
A card that holds a treat seems to solve two problems at once: whether to hand out a card or a treat, and how to attach your card to the candy if you want to hand out both. Our Love and Lips Kids Valentine’s Day Cards and Stylish Mustache Kids Valentine’s Day Cards have a little hole punched through them, so kids can insert a lollipop. The cards are personalized with their name, so there’s no need to sign each one. Perfect for parents, too!
