Here’s a look at the top five products others are buying at Pear Tree Greetings this month!
Only 10 days left until it’s Valentine’s Day! Does your child have the coolest valentines to hand out in school? If not, check out our adorable classroom valentines or our kids Valentine’s Day cards; you won’t be disappointed with either (and neither will your child)!
We all know how much kids love to get treats on Valentine’s Day. But they also love to get valentines. So how do you personalize your child’s Valentine’s Day treats without going through the awkward process of taping all the treats to your kids Valentine’s Day cards? We have a simple answer: Valentine’s Day personalized stickers and gift tags.
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.
Brandon is one of our ah-mazing designers at Pear Tree and enjoys creating kids’ cards that are engaging and unique. Some of his favorite categories to design for are Halloween Invitations, Kids Birthday Invitations and Kids Valentine’s Day Cards. Brandon is still very young at heart and likes to teach kids how to use their imaginations to create illustrations.So, this year Brandon made it his personal goal to hold a class and create some activities for kids around drawing. He settled on drawing different kinds of monsters. He began by finding a location to host the class and then started developing posters, flyer handouts, a newspaper ad and website artwork to announce the class. Brandon and Michelle, another amazing Pear Tree designer, went around schools to hand out the flyers to teachers and hang the posters at local activity centers. Brandon put in a lot of hard work organizing and preparing the activities for kids. Continue reading
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?
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!
Kids love Valentine’s Day, and not just because it may involve candy. It’s the one time of year they get to send a secret message to their friends. The message–whether it’s true love or best friends forever–is what it’s all about.
Coming up with cute ways to decorate their valentines and the bags or boxes they use to collect them at school, is all a part of the fun. After you’ve chosen the perfect kids Valentine’s Day cards, check out our valentine stickers to match (or not). Kids can have fun sticking them on folders and notebooks, or to decorate valentines and V-day projects at school. They’re also fun for giving away. In fact, stickers rank pretty high on Mom’s list of Valentine’s Day ideas for kids, because they’re a treat without being a sweet. Don’t get stuck without them!
We asked our team members to tell us which of our Valentine’s Day card ideas for kids they liked best, and here are the top three picks:
1. Ninja Action in Blue Kids Valentine’s Day Cards
Tyler, Project Manager, says: I like the Ninja Action in Blue Kids Valentine’s Day Cards because ninjas are awesome. What kid wouldn’t want ninja valentine cards?! Seriously.
Liwanag, President of Pear Tree, says: Ninja cards for sure! They are funny and the kind of card a boy can get excited about sending.
Your kids want to hand out treats at school for Valentine’s Day, but to you this holiday is less about the candy and more about the fun message on the card. What to do? Compromise, of course. And go with more creative Valentine’s Day ideas.
Our valentine gift tags let you plant kisses and stick fun little messages of love wherever you want. That means you can buy any treats or gifts you like, and turn them into personalized valentines.
If your kids can’t decide which design they like best for their Valentine’s Day card exchange, we’ve got the perfect solution—order a few of each! We make it easy to mix and match Kids Valentine’s Day Cards at Pear Tree because you can order as few as 8 cards of any one design. It costs the same, whether you order 48 of one design, or pick three designs and order 16 of each. And there are enough kids Valentine ideas in our collection to please everyone.
