Irish illustrator Conor Merriman has recently launched an online shop where you can buy his pop culture prints, postcards and a collection of beautiful, inclusive Valentine’s cards for €3.50. Over at MIMI+MARTHA and Designist, the online lifestyle and interiors stores, you’ll find a selection of gorgeous gifts by Irish creators and a selection of quirky Valentine’s cards from €3.50.

Paper Bear make illustrated pop-up cards that are a work of art themselves and over at Light House Cinema, you’ll find greeting cards and art prints.

Wexford-born Gilly and Rob sell all the cheesy cards you could ever want and Bold Bunny cards have a distinctly Irish sense of humour.

National housing charity Threshold have partnered with Irish artists and illustrators to create a selection of Valentine’s Day e-cards to raise funds for the charity. You can find their e-cards over at DontSendMeACard, an online platform which turns the cost of cards into donations with donations starting at as little as €2.

You can also find A Hug For You cards by The Late Late Toy Show’s Adam King in Supervalu and Centra with all proceeds going to CHI Temple Street and Cork University Hospital Charity.
