14 Non-Cheesy Valentine’s Day Cards

The official day of amour is almost upon us. Since Valentine’s seems to be one of those holidays you either love or hate,?we’ve found 14 sweet?cards for?your significant other that won’t give you a toothache…?

14 Non-Cheesy Valentine's Day Cards | Image.ie1 & 2. Dusty Boy Designs. Flamingos are everywhere at the moment thanks to the s/s 2016 penchant for all things tropical?(even Whitney Port is on board). As well as being on trend, these leggy birds are one of a few species of birds that mate for life. This pretty number (?3.45) and the Candy Crush card pictured at the top of this post (?15.95 for an assorted box of eight) are both from?Dusty Boy Designs.

10. Kerry Lyons. Birmingham-based?Kerry Lyons’ minimalist greeting cards are sweetly sentimental but without the usual OTT Valentine’s fuss. However, the paper is made from?by-products of citrus, coffee, kiwis, hazelnuts and almonds, so a fruity scent isn’t out of the question (?3.25, around €4.25).?
