12 Valentine’s Cards That Won’t Make You Want to Vom… & Win £50 to Spend on Etsy!

valentines cards that dont make you want to vom

Don’t get me wrong, love is a wonderfully glorious thing, but the forced “We’re so in lurrrve, let’s spend lots of money on overpriced bouquets and go to a packed restaurant with everyone else that’s also in lurrrrrve” attitude around Valentine’s Day isn’t really my bag.

Gareth and I are much more likely to stay in with a takeaway than go out to a fancy restaurant, and while he buys me ‘just because’ flowers all the time, I don’t think he’s ever bought me some on V-day. He likes to be unpredictable and I think that’s way more romantic anyway.

In saying that, it is nice to give a nod of “I think you’re the best” to your other half on Valentine’s, but doing so doesn’t have to make you cringe. So I went on a hunt for the most non-butt clenching cards and prints I could find… Oh and one set of marshmallows, because who wouldn’t want to get custom marshmallows as a gift?!

I’ve also partnered with Etsy on this post to give someone a £50 voucher to spend on their website! Just scroll down to the end to find out how to enter.

    It’s my mum’s 60th coming up and she’s already the hardest woman in the world to buy for, so I would have a look for something unique and special for her, maybe a piece of handmade jewellery.

  2. tiffany callan


    I’ve given up on trying to be warm in winter and im embracing the cold in my 60s tea dresses but I need petticoats to give them some oomph 🙂

  3. Miriam KRUTSKA

    I would buy lots pretty candles , candle junkie here the more unusual the better xxxx

  4. Siobhan Lucy

    I would get wedding invitations for my wedding in September. I’ve seen some awesome tortoise ones on Etsy 🙂

  5. Beth Roberts

    I’ve tried to source as much as i can for my wedding in July from cottage industries I love the thought of people making something just for me 🙂 i would buy a fabolously over the top sparkly, glittery gorgeous head piece for my wedding! My beloved friends and family would expect nothing less…..

  6. Kelly Summerfield

    I’ve seen so many gorgeous bits for my babies nursery – lots of cute wall art x

  7. Carly A

    I would really like to spend the money on some decorations for our wedding that will have a slight Harry Potter vibe, vintage suitcases for a wishing well, or a custom cake topper, the possibilities are endless!

  8. Tracey Gill

    If I won, I’d put the voucher towards some awesome shoes I’ve got my eye on for our wedding later this year

  9. Donna Towner

    I have seen these really cool pea pod necklaces that are on etsy. it’s a choice of different coloured peas and numbers so i would pick 3 blue peas for me but i would also buy my sister one she would need 5 pink peas in hers


    These cards sound great. Whenever I need to buy one I get so annoyed, cos all the messages inside are mushy lovey dovey stuff that just isn’t me; I think they are embarassing. These would suit me down to the ground.
