Valentine’s Day cards are generally awful. They stand out amongst the other types of greetings cards for being so often devoid of any genuine meaning or significance. For example (and there are many) they often feature a bizarre breed of cherub bears holding roses or a box of chocolate, or two members of this fantasy breed kissing each other. I’ve thought about what this means and come to the conclusion that it means absolutely nothing. Despite this it’s clearly hit a nerve with great swaths of the card buying public and a whole ocean of these cards can be found here. If someone can explain to me what miniature bears has to do with your feelings for someone else please get in touch.
As an alternative to the bizarre-pedophile-bear-culture, each year we create a handful of new Valentine’s Day cards that are 100% free from such nonsense. Here are five of our favourites that are currently on sale on our site!
5. Just wanted to let you know… I fucked Ted. (BUY)
Breaking Bad inspired card. In all relationships, honesty is always the best. Note to reader: If you didn’t personally have sex with ‘Ted” there is nothing stopping you putting a line through that name and replacing it with a more appropriate name. Although if you did, this card Is perfect for you!
4. I find human contact repulsive. (BUY)
Larry David inspired. Straight to the point and as with our fifth choice, showcases the importance of being honest. Clear and understood boundaries are key to a great relationship
