Valentine's Day Cards that don't completely suck

Looking for a Valentine's card that doesn't have love hearts and teddy bears and cuteness and twee vomiting out of it? Yeah, me too. Here are my favourites.


Wait, hang on. I'm doing this Valentine's day thing all wrong, aren't I? But I really really do love this David Shrigley card. It's ironic, OK? It's £2.90 from Polite cards.


Awww, this one made my tummy flip a little bit. That's so romantic, in a very British way. That's totally how I want my romance. This ambivalent card is £2.50 from Miso Funky. I'm never ambivalent about that website. Love it.


Usually I run away from all personalised cards, as thought they're riddled with some sort of Funky Pigeon plague. But this one? This can stay. It's £2.05 from Paperbird.


Dancing foxes make for very lovely Valentine's cards. V&A, you're so sweet. But your lack of apostrophe is going to bug the hell outta me.


Another fox! But this foxy card chap is so dapper, it's impossible to ignore him. He's £3.75 from Papermash. I like his monocle.


DON'T BUY THIS ONE. IT'S CHILLING.


But a zombie apocalypse? Nah, that's not scary. That's sweet. Zombie love will cost you £2.


Binary love is so damn sexy.

  1. Dude, why is the sunshine card chilling? I like that one.

    My favourite is the dancing foxes though. I could draw on my own apostrophe.

    5. If it were a person it would be a creepy murderer. Who then wore the clothes/skin of thier sunshine to keep them alive after killing them because they escaped thier warped clutches. Or turned them down for a real date unaware that the polite chit chat in the corridor for the last two years had been misnterpreted as a relationship.

    6. I've got the music playing in my head when I read that one. But you're right - strangely chilling out of context. I'll put my sunshine wherever I like, thank you.

    3. It's from a shop called Gorgeousness on Folksy - just click the link! They've sold out of this one, perhaps due to a fast-fingered reader, but there are others and Folksy listings get updated pretty quickly!

  8. Okay, a lot of those are actually pretty cool. I like the dancing foxes best, though the dapper fox is also pretty cool. Binary is just a little TOO geeky for me, though it's cool for those who are into that sort of thing. And zombies... I don't know, I think I'm zombied out. That one's just not for me, though I do know some people who would totally love that card.

    1. Oh they're still totally subjective. Just a little cooler than Forever Friends.

  9. Using a stupid American word like 'suck' in the title? Stop it!
