Has anyone here ever organized a round-robin for Valentine cards?  (like they do for Holiday cards in DEC?)

 

Also,  does anyone still send their adult children Valentine gifts?  Or just cards to remind them they are loved? (I'm thinking since oldest daughter is  now married and middle one has a steady boyfriend, they are getting V-Day gifts from true sweethearts and probably don't need one from mom anymore.)

I have no idea.

My mom or grandma still gets me a valentine since I am still single.

If you are interested in doing this, I will join. :)

I haven't heard of any Valentine round-robins (but the Christmas one sure was fun!).

As for sending Valentines to adult kids... if they still enjoy it & you still enjoy it, keep doing it.  I'm 45 and my Aunt still sends me a handmade Valentine - I love the thoughtfulness of it and it brings me a smile everytime heart

I still send Valentine's to everyone in my family as I love each and every one of them.

Some discussion went around so looks like NEXT YEAR I will be coordinating a round-robin for Valentines within just the Raok forum, maybe keep it to 6-8 cards for each of us to send out so cards and postage don't get too expensive for anyone.

Elona, yes, too late for this year.  It takes awhile to set up something like this.  We'll do it next year in plenty of time for Valentines to be mailed .

Ok, everybody who said they were interested here is on a list I started for next year. I think in DEC  or Thanksgiving weekend we will post the signup thread in the RAOK forum then get all the names and addresses out right after New Year's.

Thanks, Jeanne!  Thanksgiving/Dec. seems like such a long time away but sure enough it'll be here in the blink of an eye :-)
