Valentine Cards with notes, pictures, music, and video

When you spend a good couple of hours crafting Valentine cards with a six-year old, and see how they come up with well-thought and apparently accurate complimens for each of their classmates (“You are funny Adam”, “You are kind Tommy”, “You are the best in school Samuel”), you suddenly remember what great Valentines greetings are all about.   Instead of just sending a card with a picture of a heart, it’s about saying something meaningful about the other person in a way that brings a big smile to their face.

We at ThingLink are doing two things for this Valentine’s Day: First, we are updating our icons selector with a red heart,  and second, we are challenging you to use it and say good things about each other!

Here are ideas of what to add to your greeting:

1- Text: Add friendly notes why you think this person is awesome

2- Picture: Add pictures or fun things you have done together this year

3 – Music: Add a song you want to dedicate to this person

Example: Here is my Valentine’s note to our new customer support specialist Rachel who just joined our Palo Alto team on Monday. We think Rachel is so awesome and hope you will get to meet her soon too!
