Good morning, friends. Happy Tuesday! It’s hard to believe we’re already a week into February, but sure enough, Valentine’s Day is next week and all the stores are decked out in red and pink. Of course, Valentine’s Day candy has been in the aisles since December; I’m almost surprised July 4th decorations aren’t up yet.
How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day in your house?
Early on in our relationship, Paul and I would make a pretty big deal out of it. Or maybe I should say I made a big deal out of it. Ha! Over the years, it has become less of an event, but we always make a point to go out to dinner together somewhere nice, and sometimes he will bring me flowers.
Since having kids, our celebrations often incorporate them. We like to do our dinner out on an off-night when the restaurants are less crowded, and then we spend Valentine’s Day at home with the kids. Our girls love to set the table with china and silver and scatter red and pink heart-shaped confetti about, and I make one of their favorite meals. If I think about it, I get the kids each a small gift. Gift giving is my love language, so I have a hard time ignoring the pretty seasonal displays when I’m out and about.
Jewelry is one of my favorite gifts to give and get because it’s personal and meaningful, it lasts for years, and you can wear it as often as you want. My husband has given me quite a few pieces of jewelry over the years, and I can remember exactly when I received each one and where we were. I love having a collection of pretty accessories to commemorate special events and occasions through the years. Now that the girls are getting older, I often buy jewelry for them when I need a gift, and it’s definitely my go-to when it comes to friends and family members.
With Valentine’s Day approaching and graduation and wedding season on the horizon, this is the perfect time to introduce you to Hallmark Jewelry at Amazon.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Hallmark cards and gifts, so I was thrilled to hear about their new partnership with Amazon Fashion. They’ve created a line of jewelry for every love story including relationships, family, faith, special events, and kids. Each piece is crafted with quality materials and carries a sentimental message to keep or share with someone special.
They invited me to select a little “me gift” from their collection, so after browsing a bit, I picked out this sterling silver triple rings necklace from their Relationships & Stories collection. It came packaged so pretty, perfect for gift giving.
The necklace is small and dainty, and the 18″ diamond-cut chain has such a pretty sparkle. I love the simplicity of the design, and it makes the perfect understated accent in a v-neck top.
Another nice thing about Hallmark’s partnership with Amazon Fashion is you get the benefit of Amazon Prime’s free two-day shipping, if you’re a member. I can barely remember life before Amazon Prime! It’s so convenient. At this point I have most of our household necessities on auto-order, and their app is on my iPhone so I don’t even have to be at my computer to place an order when I think of something we need. That Buy Now feature is pretty dangerous, but I love it because it makes life so much easier.
Whether you need a last minute Valentine’s Day gift or are thinking ahead to weddings, graduations, and other events coming up this spring, Hallmark has you covered with the perfect gift or keepsake. Shop their collection online at Amazon.com.
