You’ve scoured the Strategist and found the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, but the card is equally as important — whether you’re long-distance or have been stuck together in the same house since last Valentine’s Day. A thoughtful, unique, and well-curated gift — given from a responsible distance — deserves a card to match, so, respectfully, we’ve banned anything from Hallmark or American Greetings from this list. Instead, we’ve rounded up the most tasteful, punny, and slightly suggestive Valentine’s Day cards — all of which you can buy on Amazon, and most with two-day shipping, no masked trip to the drugstore required. While many are geared toward romantic relationships, there are also a few cards on this list for friends, kids (or a childlike adult), and even blank cards you could give to literally anyone.
Spread the love with one of the funny, punny, crafty, romantic, or retro Valentine’s cards below — but don’t dillydally: Shipping times vary by location, but in general, today’s the last day to order your card to ensure delivery on or by February 14. (Just make sure to double-check the delivery date at checkout.)
