Nobody, we mean nobody, gets left behind this Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re happily married off (and now have kids with their own V-Day parties at school) or think it’s the stupidest Hallmark holiday in existence, you can still participate. Spread the love this February 14th—even if it’s just platonic love—by sending out greeting cards to all those people (your mom, sis, brother, dad, grandparents, neighbors… okay, okay, you get the point) that you’re infinitely grateful for.
Ahead, we’re sharing 11 heartfelt and funny Valentine’s Day cards… just because la-la-love is in the air. Even if you don’t think you have time to pick out and send a card, these valentines are guaranteed to wow on their own. And they need not even be accompanied by a life-size bear or cliche heart-shaped box of chocolates. Phew.

Sushi date with your favorite sister soon, maybe? This card is shrimply the best.
Nothing says, “awww, shucks, you remembered me” like a dapper bunny holding a bouquet of roses. Spread some neighborly love to the cute couple next door, your gramps, or your favorite auntie.
When cheesy rom-coms and Hallmark greeting cards are so not their thing, surprise your parents with a keepsake bamboo wood card (appropriate for even the manliest of men like your pops) that can be displayed in the foyer.
A subtle wink-wink-nudge-nudge to the sister you’re constantly trying to set up. Good try, though… Prince Charming is out there somewhere. 😉
May the force be with you this Valentine’s Day. This Yoda pop-up card is everything you didn’t know you needed. Any diehard Star Wars fan will get a kick out of the glowing green lightsaber strung in a cupid’s bow.
This mini handmade paper heart containing a handful of wildflower seeds will serve as a reminder to bloom where you are planted. Gardeners (hey, mom) will appreciate the sweet gesture.
You’re a self-proclaimed Daddy’s Girl, and ya know it. As cheesy as it may sound, you’ll always be his honey bunch, too.
Candy hearts taste like chalk anyway. For the *sweetest* sister on the planet, may we recommend this pretty ‘n’ pink beaded heart lollipop card from Papyrus?
Good grief! Send some love from the Peanuts Gang this V-Day. Inside it reads: “…to someone who makes the world a happier place.” That someone could be a coworker, your parents, your favorite barista—it’s the thoughtful sentiment that counts.
“I cannot espresso how much you bean to me.” Puns aside, allow coffee to be your love language of choice this February 14th.
