For Kids: Pre-Made Valentines

Welcome to the Valentine’s Day Gift Guide on Traveling with Baby.  From now until February 14th, you’ll find great Valentine’s gift ideas for the whole family.  You’ll even have the opportunity to win some of the products featured on the Gift Guide–isn’t that lovely?


Do you remember those fun perforated valentines that children exchanged in elementary school?  I remember being very particular about what was printed on each card before determining which classmate ended up with it.  After all, I did NOT want to misconstrue any feelings beyond platonic friendship to the boys in my class.

I don’t know if other first-graders went through such meticulous pains with choosing who received their valentines when scribbling names onto the red and white paper with a sharpened #2 pencil.

If you’re not into the sappy love language for classmates that you’re bound to find in every big box store pack of premade valentines, you could 1) make your own from scratch, or 2) order your own from Next Day Flyers.  Friendly wishes, more heartfelt greetings, or just cute puppy pictures are all available for you to choose.  You can order 100 of them on 1/4 page flyers for $17.95 with FREE personalization.  I’m kinda smitten over the punch-out cards.

These cards would be so much fun for a Valentine’s Day party as invites or greetings.  If you don’t have 100 classmates…then share an order with friends or save them for next year.

If you like sending valentines to family members, then check out the 4×6 postcards printed with high gloss UV or satin matte finish on ultra thick card stock.  Next Day Flyers also makes custom door hangers and greeting cards–something I think I’ll use for Christmas 2010.

Next Day Flyers is an eight year-old California-based company that creates custom printing for customers nationwide.  Since they’re based online, they’re available 24/7…how convenient!


One (1) winner will receive $50 worth of free printing credits on Next Day Flyers.

To enter, please visit Next Day Flyers, then leave a comment here on what you’d use your printing credits toward prior to February 14th at 11:59 p.m.  Please follow the contest rules and avoid any generalized comments, or you will be disqualified.
