13 great gift cards for your Valentine

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day or is it just another “Hallmark” holiday? I’ve been in both camps. I’ve gone from not caring (when I didn’t have a boyfriend) to loving it (when I did have a boyfriend and in the early stages of marriage) back to not being too fussed.

Handy Hubby and I have plans this year but there won’t be any gifts. With my birthday in January and his in February, a handwritten Valentine’s card with special words is enough.

We’re not ones to be all soppy and lovey-dovey. A good pun and giggle or a beautiful design is more our style when we look for gift cards (the same goes for kid’s birthday cards too).

From lovely sentiments and designs to cheesy puns and great giggles, here are 13 of my favourite Valentine’s cards (click on the image to be taken to the card seller). All sellers featured are Australian but you better get in quick – Valentine’s Day is fast approaching…..

You are the Juan  Cannoli  Ralph Wiggum


I’m such a Ralph Wiggum fan. If you want to borrow Ralph’s smooth moves then look no further than this card:

One of my favourite cards is by local Perth stationery designer, Kelsie from K Gets Organised. This card is so bright, happy and lovely that it just makes me smile.

That’s how you should feel when you’re in love, right?

bloomin lovely

An added bonus is that 100% of the purchase of this card for the whole of February goes to SAFE Perth (Saving Perth Animals from Euthanasia).  She also has a lovely range of hand painted Valentine’s cards too. Awesome work Kelsie!


Do you include a handwritten card every time you give a gift?

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?

Any special plans for this year?
