It’s that time of year again, where the glitter, red and gold comes out and the roses, bears and chocolates seem to be bought in bagfuls.
Wether you love it or loathe it, I truly believe Valentine’s Day is for everyone, not just for couples. Love is not just boy meets girl/boy meets boy/girl meets girl – it’s friends who stay with you till midnight because you’re scared of your new flat, or that guy friend who always has your back. Or, as was my case, it’s your Grandad who still writes you ‘secret admirer’ Valentine’s cards even after 21 years of doing so.
It doesn’t have to be the obvious mush. Sometimes it’s the honest feelings, and this is something that myself and my husband say to each other often. [Card and image by Old English Co.]
And if you literally can’t deal with any level of mush, then this is the ideal card for emotion introverts. [Card and image from Darwin Designs.]
Forget words, and just send some gorgeous art. I love that this design can literally be used for anything – and those colour combinations?! Dreamy. [Card and image from BBIllustration.]
And if you really like something traditional, then this card has everything you need. [Card and image from Constance and Clay.]
And finally an essential Galentine’s card [Card and image from Veronica Dearly.]
