Sending Memories This Valentine’s Day

in, Fashion Holidays

I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentine’s Day presents – although I will never not appreciate flowers  – and after talking to a few friends I realized most people enjoy this ‘holiday’ in simplistic forms: flowers, chocolates, a candlelit dinner, beautiful cards sharing sweet sentiments and memories. I really think it’s because most bank accounts are still recovering from the holidays, so buying expensive gifts for your significant other or dear friends is just out of the question. I love that to convey true love and affection we don’t have to move heaven and earth, we just have to write it down in a card.

Without a doubt my favorite Valentine’s Day memories are the sweet cards I’ve gotten from Lee over the years (I’ve kept them all!) And because of that, I’m always on the hunt for sweet and simple cards that convey my love or appreciation for family members, friends, and of course my husband. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I wanted to share a company I came across called Basic Invite. This website allows you to create 100% customizable cards for any occasion you could think of.

As an aside: to all my girls that just got engaged over the holidays, this is the website for you! Wedding invites, save the dates, thank you notes, and even personalized wedding websites, Basic Invites can save you so much time and headache with their comprehensive wedding suite. I did a little digging just for fun and created a beautiful rose gold foiled card with an engagement photo and it *almost* made me want to send out wedding invites all over again!

For Valentine’s Day this year, I picked out these darling photo cards to send out to some loved ones. They are the perfect little token of your love and thankfully Basic Invites makes the process fast and easy and offers such great shipping options so even if you’re just now thinking of what to do, there’s still plenty of time before February 14! I was able to customize everything from the photos to the font choices and now have a beautiful selection of cards and invites for this special day.

I love the fact that I was able to customize everything from the photos to the font choices and now have a beautiful selection of cards and invites for this special day. It’s just as easy and so much more special than picking up a pre-made Valentine’s Day card at a store down the street!

So, if you’re single and planning a Galentine’s Day bash or celebrating the day with the one you love the most, every card and invite you need is waiting for you online at

And if you have special plans with a special someone, there’s still time to pick up a beautiful dress for your romantic night out. I love the light pink hues in dresses this season – wear it on Feb. 14 and hang it in your closet ready to be worn the entire spring and summer season.
