66 Valentine's Day Cards for When You Realize "Oh, I Need to Buy One of Those!"

V-Day cards for significant others, best friends, and everything in between

Updated 01/22/19

Ah, remember the grade-school Valentine's Days of yore—when someone's mom would bring in pink-frosted cupcakes and everyone swapped punny or pop-culture themed Valentine's Day cards? (The best ones had candy attached, IMO.) Celebrating V-Day as an adult doesn't mean you have to skip out on the sentiment of a personalized note (or stockpiling NECCO sweethearts that taste like chalk, but you finish the box anyway). In fact, you've entered a whole new world of Valentine's Day cards, now that years of education have increased your capacity for pun appreciation. Plus, you're old enough for PG-13 exchanges if you and your partner are into an old-school version of sexting.

So whether you're looking for something funny, sexy, cute, or endearing, we've got a Valentine's Day card recommendation below. Celebrating Galentine's Day with your BFFs or bridesmaids? Yep, we have cards for that, too. No need to thank us, but if you wanted to, there's a really cute option three cards up from the bottom. Just saying.
