My Favorite Valentine’s Gifts

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I’ve been searching for the perfect Valentine’s gifts for my two loves!  I’ve gotten my kids Valentine’s Day gifts since they were little.  I will admit as they got older it became more difficult, their tastes became more expensive and more picky. But, now I think they appreciate the more sentimental gifts as opposed to the more practical.

My Breaking Heart Valentine Card

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, are you ready?  I love getting cards or presents that are handmade and thoughtful.  I remember when my children were small and they would make Valentine’s cards at school.  They were more precious to me than any Hallmark card.  I’ve created for you this week a card that hopefully will have that handmade and thoughtful feel.

Torn Hearts Collection
