Chocolate, flowers, jewelry, teddy bears and more – there are so many ways to spoil your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day. Whether you like to go the traditional route or prefer to give gifts that are on the unusual side, Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to show your special someone that you care.
Valentine’s Day cards are one of the most traditional gifts, especially since they go way back to when you were in elementary school. It was fun to write the names of every person in your class on a miniature card and drop them in a personalized shoebox during a big class party, and that fun can continue into adulthood. Valentine’s Day cards are full of pink and red and are bursting with hearts, but most importantly, they usually have the perfect phrase that says exactly what you are thinking but can’t put into words yourself.
When it comes to Valentine’s Day cards, you don’t have to stop with just your sweetheart. Moms, dads, sister, kids, grandparents, nieces and nephews…everyone appreciates a sweet card, especially if it’s unexpected. Many of the Valentine’s Day cards in the list below come in packs, so you can easily send a card to all of your family members and friends. Whether you go the sentimental route or prefer to keep things light and funny, you can’t go wrong with a well thought out Valentine’s Day card.
