Even if Valentine's Day isn't your thing, you've got to shout bae out on Instagram — it's a rule. It's like, if you're going to shout out pizza on National Pizza Day, you've gotta do the same for your lover on the most commercial love holiday. Here I've put together a list of bae tribute Valentine's Day Instagram captions because I know caption-block can totally get in the way between you and a cute post. Way too many great posts sit in that purgatory folder we call drafts because they don't have a great caption to make it out into the main feed.
Don't stress over it, just pick out a great photo, and use one of the captions I've selected to bring it to life. You'll find a pretty balanced combination of food puns, classical romantic literature, and humorous quotes that all make a great case for bae on Valentine's Day. No matter how you feel about the holiday, we could all use a great excuse to spread love on any day.
