Sharing The Love: Last Minute Valentine’s Gifts

Love is in the air do, do, do, do, do, do, love is the air! Yes Valentine’s Day is pretty much upon us. What’s that you say? You’ve forgotten to get the one you love a present? Never fear, for I have spent an evening creating a wonderful list of gifts of love you can make for your partner, your kids, your cat, yourself, basically anyone you truly love. And they’ll never know you may have, sort of, forgot. Obviously these work for other occasions, like anniversaries, saying sorry for forgetting anniversaries. You get the picture.

The full Pinterest Board is here, but here are a few of my favourites….

You’ll Do: Top 10 Brutally Honest Valentine’s Day Cards

Roses are red, violets are blue...

Valentine’s Day, the day when you tell the one you love just how much they mean to you. Or, if you’re me, the day you send your other half a a mildly insulting card telling them that you tolerate them. Just.

I’m not particularly a big fan of Valentine’s Day (as you may have guessed), but tradition dictates that if I don’t want my other half to hate me I should really give him a card. Especially since I demand some form of token gift in return – just because I don’t like Valentine’s Day shouldn’t mean I miss out on overpriced flowers (this is in bold just in case my other half bothers to read this blog. You know, just to hammer the point home).

Anyway, if you also like your cards with less schmaltz and added snark, then here are some of the greatest Valentine’s Day cards you can buy, from the best designer makers / illustrators selling online…
