Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. However, all opinions are my own. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my go-to person. Monster under the bed? Dad. Car runs out of gas? Dad. Boy breaks your heart? Dad. Literally, every single time something goes wrong, my Dad can fix it. Now that I’m all grown up, seriously though when did that happen? I appreciate my dad more than ever—no matter how old I get, my Dad will always be the person I call to save the day.
Sometimes it’s hard to put into words exactly what he means to me, but Hallmark always comes to my rescue especially during holidays. This Father’s Day is no different. Recently, I went to Walgreens to find the perfect Hallmark card. My dad is such a card guy. He loves them. I swear he always finds the best ones for everyone on special occasions. At an early age I learned the importance of cards. Finding the perfect one for someone is so important, especially when its my dad. I am usually pretty sentimental when it comes to cards and always go for those tear-jerker messages. But, lately my dad and I have been having so much fun together so I wanted to keep the momentum going and give him a fun Hallmark card. He already knows how much he means and this year I want to focus on celebrating him and just how amazing he is. I found the best #HallmarkAtWalgreens card. While I was card shopping I came across the new thrill-seeking Virtual Reality cards from Hallmark. I love being on top of the newest trends and of course my dad only deserves the best. These Virtual Reality cards are an affordable and accessible way to give any Dad a Father’s Day adventure! I found one with a surfer and waves on the front of it. Growing up my family always took vacations to California and my dad and I would spend countless hours in the ocean, jumping waves, soaking up the sun, seriously some of my very best memories. So, I was pretty excited to be able to give him a similar experience through this card. As soon as I saw that bright blue card, I knew it was perfect for my dad this Father’s Day. The VR Hallmark cards are so cool. If you’re looking for a unique, out of the box, card to give your dad that will certainly impress him the VR cards from Hallmark are the way to go! And, for those of you mailing cards to dads or dad figures farther away, these cards fold flat for easy mailing!
Let me tell you how these work! After finding the perfect Hallmark VR card at Walgreens, head online to get things going (see instructions below for easy viewing). Each card includes a link to a different, and impressive 360° viewing experience, depending on which card you buy – riding a motorcycle, racing a car, etc. I used this video to help me get started.
How Hallmark’s Pop-Up VR Viewer Greeting Card Works:
- Make sure the YouTube app is installed on your phone.
- Tear the viewer out from the card, pop it up, but don’t slide your phone in yet!
- Go to URL link printed on Hallmark’s VR viewer.
- Watch the instructional video and listen for the beep.
- Tap the viewer icon to split the video into VR mode.
- Insert your phone into the viewer and you’re all set!
- Compatible with most VR Content.
And this is what my dad saw when he looked inside.
My dad absolutely loved the card. He kept going on and on about how amazing it was. It truly made me so happy seeing him this excited over a card. Yet, again Hallmark makes those special moments even more magical. If you’re as excited as I am about Father’s Day this year, make sure to join the Father’s Day twitter party I’m hosting with Hallmark and Walgreens.
