Target for Valentine’s Day…One Stop Shopping!

Posted On January 25, 2015| 1 Reply

So I visited my local Target the other day. This has become somewhat of a weekly outing since they graciously opened a new store TWO minutes from my garage! Yippee! I have yet to make it through a trip without spotting a friend, so apparently I am not alone in my complete jubilation of this close to home location. Thank you Target!

I really didn’t need anything, I was actually there only for a return! With my return complete I spotted the Starbucks (genius location….INSIDE the Target store!). It was cold, so I treated myself to a grande hot cocoa. With whipped cream. Duh. While I was waiting for the hot cocoa creator to call my name I noticed these adorable Valentine gift cards at the check out. Adorable.

Images of my kid’s teachers jumped into my mind and I scooped up two. (Mrs. G. and Miss D., act surprised when you open it!). The wheels in my holiday-obsessed mind started turning so I decided to take a (quick) spin around the store. An hour later I left with several must-have’s and a smile on my face.

While shopping, I snapped lots of pictures for you, my blog-reading friends. You can seriously wrap up all of your Valentine needs with a one hour trip to Target. I am pretty sure the nice workers in red shirts thought I was delusional as I rearranged their displays to get the best pictures, but I am willing to take chances to help mankind!

Sit back, sip on your Starbucks and take a look at how Target has all of your Valentine needs covered…….
