You’ve scoured the Strategist and found the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, but the card is equally as important. How do you think a drugstore card will look to the Tony’s Chocolonely chocolate bar you gifted her? Or next to the Jaxon Lane Bro Mask you got him? Gifts as thoughtful, and unique, and well-curated deserve 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 (which is arguably even more convenient than popping into the drugstore on the way home). While many are geared toward romantic relationships, there are also a few cards on this list of for friends, kids (or a child-like adult), and even blank cards you could give to literally anyone. Spread the love with one the funny, punny, crafty, romantic, or retro Valentine’s cards, below.

For the couple that only communicates in emojis.
The paper bouquet on this card doesn’t give you much room to write, but the intricately designed flowers should do most of the talking anyway.
