Valentine's Day can be a pretty cheesy holiday if you wait until the last minute and rely on drugstore cards and gas station chocolates. But the holiday of love doesn't need to be half-assed or overly-cliche. There are plenty of ways to infuse some wit and fun into the holiday — especially if over-sentimentality is not your bag. For example, getting your partner an unconventional Valentine's Day card that's not from some wall of commercial options is a great place to start.
We all know what those store-bought cards look like: they've typically got a lot of red, a lot of hearts, and say something general and vague like "You are the light of my life, Happy Valentine's Day" or "Thanks for making my life so sweet". Yes, we know what it's like to get and receive these kinds of cards, and as nice as they are, they aren't exactly personal.
There are tons of cards out there that will both make your partner laugh and feel loved — and really, what's better than that combination? The best way to do Valentine's Day is the unconventional way — particularly if you already feel a bit uneasy about the whole holiday. These are some unique Valentine's cards that will make your partner feel extra-special ... and worth more than a last-minute trip to the card aisle.
For the Harry Potter fanatic, this is flipping adorable.
When you've just started to date someone and V-Day rolls around, you don't want to go overboard with the feels — instead, simply just mention them in this laid back and romantic card.
If you've just recently had a one night stand with someone, this is the card for you! There's need to be romantic when things are just casual. Send this card to say "I'm thinking about you" in the most casual way possible.
The perfect blend for the lover in your life with a good sense of humor.
Like I said, Valentine's Day doesn't have to be romantic if you don't want it to be.
I hope everyone finds the mac to their cheese.
