Paper GoodsBe My Valentine

Valentines have come a long way since the days of passing your 3rd grade crush a tiny card that says “Bee Mine” (there’s a picture of a bee on it) or “I Choo-Choo-Choose You” (a train, obviously). Your cards can now be simple and sweet, gorgeously designed, with even a little twist of some grown-up humor. We’ve gathered a couple of Valentines that are sure to make you and your Valentine smile. From left:

  • Any of the Romance cards from Hard Cards are sure to get a laugh. Our personal favorite is the one above. The front of the card says, “I love you just the way you are.” The inside? “…well, I do now that I got to change you a little.” The Hard Cards have a funny familiarity that can make your Valentine smile like it’s an inside joke that you’ve shared.
  • My favorite is the Pig Love card from Linda & Harriett. Letterpressed and printed on L&H’s quality cardstock, it has two piggies with their noses just almost rubbing. The message is simply sweet: I like me with you. Who doesn’t want to be reminded of that? It’s adorable and loving without being overly sappy.
  • Erin Condren’s All You Need valentine captures her modern design aesthetic. I love the matching pink envelope and the fact that you can personalize it with your name and your very own address labels. Plus, it bears a universal message of love that you can send to anyone you care for.

These are our favorites; what will you be sending to your Valentine? Let us know your faves in the comments!
