For Valentine’s Day, surprise someone special with a flower that blooms at the press of a button. Show your love in a fresh new way by unveiling sentiments like “I love you” and “There’s only one you!”.

I loved the sentiment in the flower that was sent to us. I knew exactly who I was gifting it to… my Dad. With his surgery and slow recovery I wanted to remind him that there really IS only one him and that he needed take care of himself. Now every time he pushes the button, he will remember that conversation.

The full garden of Blooming Expressions is available at local Hallmark Gold Crown stores and select Hallmark retailers.

Hallmark’s recordable storybooks have been on my wish list for quite some time now. I linger at the display every time I am in the store. These two titles in particular are a perfect to gift to a child for Valentines Day that will remind them every time they open it how much they mean to you.

Our neighbor, and Emma’s best friend, received a recordable storybook as a surprise in the mail one day. All three kids sat in the grass and “read” the book over and over again… I was certain the batteries would run out! Fortunately there is a safety built in these books and when switched, your story won’t erase when replacing the batteries. I have been told by the grandma that this particular book is a nighttime favorite… making me want one for my kids even more.

Hallmark added several new titles to its popular library of Recordable Story books in time for Valentine’s Day. Love you Forever and Under the Same Moon are both sweet stories about life-long love and love across the miles. They join other popular Hallmark Recordable Storybooks like Counting Kisses, All the Ways I Love You and Guess How Much I Love You.

These books are also available in many of your child’s favorite stories such as Goodnight Moon, Hey Diddle, Diddle, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, many Disney stories and more.

With a large selection of books available there should be a book for just about every child on your list.

This video gives you a quick tour of how easy it is to use a recordable storybook.
