21 (Funny, Unusual, Artful, Tasteful) Valentine’s Day Cards

Celebrating Valentine’s Day this year doesn’t have to involve a meme-y “There’s nobody I’d rather isolate with” kind of card — don’t fret. Whether you’re in a long-term relationship or you’re wondering if the person you’re seeing wants to make things official, there are plenty of actually nice Valentine’s Card options. We’ve found tasteful, artsy, punny, and even pop-up options for pretty much everyone — even those who hate the holiday but secretly keep an eye on the postbox. While most of the cards are available on Amazon, we’ve found some options elsewhere, too, for those who like to shop around.

Funny and punny Valentine’s Day cards

Suggested inscription: “Bee mine.”

These fruity cards come in a multipack — perfect if you have a few Valentines this year.

While it’s not strictly true that penguins mate for life, we still dig this punny card.

Pop-up Valentine’s Day cards

If you want something even more ornate, we like this 3-D cherry-blossom card.

A charming 3-D card in a matchstick box.

Pedants will appreciate the full stop at the end of the typed sentence in the mini-typewriter.

A nice way to announce you’ve made a dinner reservation.

Artful Valentine’s Day cards

More expensive, sure, but this watercolour card would look lovely in a frame.

We also like this one — both are by O11E Word, a California-based print shop.

Blank Valentine’s Day cards

We suggest pairing it with a bunch of flowers.

And a book of stamps

Did you know you can pick up a book of stamps on Amazon too (should you be self-isolating)?
