14 Hilarious Alternative Valentine Cards For the 14th

14 Hilarious Alternative Valentine Cards For the 14th

It’s almost time for Consumer-Driven And Cliche-Interpretation-Of-Love Day!

Valentine’s Day and love go together like a night out on New Year’s Eve and fun, but I’m on board for any day that you get to eat chocolate. I’m here for Christmas advent calendars all year round, and I don’t need a consumerism festival as an excuse to buy a box of Lindor, because I buy them for myself on the regular.

However, like Christmas, Valentine’s Day is just another spot in the calendar where the sentiment behind the celebration has been bastardized for commercial gain. Yet you must take part in the festival of consumerism, so here are some alternative valentine cards to buy your significant other in an anti-establishment way, or if you are a hilarious person.

My Favourite Duvet Stealer Card €3.00

Maybe this card will make them take the hint and SHARE.

We Both Hate the Same Stuff Card €3.50

That’s how you know it’s real love.

 

My Heart Belongs To…Card €3.21
