  • Purchase handmade valentines made from vintage postcards or stop at your local vintage/antique shop and pick up some old postcards to make your own.
  • Take a leaf out of Julia Child’s book and send fun personalized postcards for Valentine’s Day instead of Christmas!

“Valentine cards had become a tradition of ours, born of the fact that we could never get ourselves organized in time to send out Christmas cards.”
– Julia Child, My Life in France
