Valentine’s Day brings out mixed feelings in all of us, regardless of relationship status. It’s a special day to celebrate love for some, and a cheesy commercial holiday for others. Like it or not, Valentine’s Day is here to stay, and unless you are a total curmudgeon, you’re going to have to buy a card. Fortunately, there’s a way to avoid the mushy sentiments while still telling your loved one that they’re important to you, or whatever.
We’ve chosen 15 cards that range from simple and elegant to packed with puns (in a good way). Send a cleverly-designed love note from one of these independent artists and put a smile on a special someone’s face.
