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.

    I would buy goodies for my best friends vintage hen party im her bridesmaid and want to give her a send offto remember on her journey with the man of her dreams!!

  2. Emma Roper

    I would put the cash towards my favours, every table is a different movie and we will have a different favour to reflect the movie 😀

  3. vikki macefield

    we are moving house in a few weeks so id buy some lovely framed prints for out studio! (im a photographer and my boyfriends a web designer) xxx

  4. Rebecca Gleave

    I think I would buy something totally cute for my daughter 🙂
    I see so many teddy’s and bedroom decals and dress-up outfits that she would look too cute in 🙂
    She will love it. And why wouldn’t you want to spoil my child 🙂

  5. Sam

    I would buy the beautiful big round pastel coloured balloons we want to use for our photos and as table decorations for our wedding, we are saving like superheroes but there’s always something else! Absolutely love your blog and love the magazine! Xxxx

  6. Lou

    Decoration for our new living room, some crazy art or nerdy stuff. Would be nice to pick something out together on Valentines Day 🙂

  7. Ann-Marie

    I would like to say I’d buy wedding things as I’m getting married next year and have seen lots of pretty things including bunting and a sign which my son would carry… But a years a long time, I might find a lovely dress or some killer heels in the meantime!

  8. Virginia

    I would get two gorgeous large frames and fill with pics of our loved ones who are no longer with us but in our hearts still. They would take pride of place on our wedding day and afterwards i’d give to our families..good luck everyone.
    😀 x

  9. naomi smith

    I loove etsy. Never can quite afford anything though.. I’d ptobably use the voucher as a hiny for my hubby to buy something for me 🙂 x

  10. Emily

    Seeing as me and the husband-to-be are desperately saving every penny for our wedding I’d get him the goofiest, coolest gift I could find on etsy, which will be difficult as there are sooo many to choose from (but a £50 spend would make that so much easier)! As the bride-to-be I’ve been getting a lot of fuss off our friends and family so I’d love to be able to give him a nice little surprise

  11. Jill Stephen

    I would buy a glittery banner that says “party time, excellent” for behind my top table! X

  12. SarahJennings

    There are so many things I want!

    We moved and couldn’t ship a lot of household stuff, so something pretty for the way too bare apartment! And then something pretty for me too, I own no jewellery other than wedding and engagement ring and can never justify getting for any for myself!


  13. Keli-Jane

    If I was to win I’d buy a gorgeous handmade antler headpiece with a birdcage veil to wear for our festival themed wedding in September 🙂

  14. kelly

    I’d buy some of the lovely initials stamps to start really planning our wedding and probably something cute and stag related to match (because who doesn’t love antlers, we have them everywhere!!)

  15. Emma McLaughlin

    To be honest, I’m not sure what I would buy. There’s so many lovely things on the site that I think that half the fun would just be browsing!

  16. Becca Ward

    Kraft stickers, vintage fabric swatches, personalised cigar boxes, bridesmaid robes…the list goes on and on so 50 would be a BIG help!

  17. Jen

    I’d buy some thank you gifts for our wedding in July – starting with pretty handmade necklaces for my two bridesmaids x

  18. Charlotte Anthony

    I would buy a massive print of the moon to put above my bed! And I may have enough left over for more treats 😀

  19. Jodie Downes

    I’d put it towards some amazing handmade jewellry as a Valentine’s present for myself! & maybe a cute card for my Boyf too!

  20. Tanya Furssedonn

    Well obviously I’d pick out a cute card for my bf, then I’d probably pick out some home decor items with cats and/or skulls on them as I just moved into a new flat and my room is looking a little boring.

  21. Jo wright

    I’m looking for some fabulous vintage furs to go with my wedding dress (north-East in April, brrrr) and £50 would take a bite out of the price for me!

  22. Elle deakin

    Id spend it on some stormtrooper cufflinks for the hubs to be! Ive wanted them for ages to give him on the wedding day but have never been able to prioritise buying them in the budget 🙁 But as a big starwars fan I know he’d love them. xx

  23. Emma Chamberlain

    I love these, they’re fab!! I would buy my wedding shoes – I can’t find the shoes I want in actual shops, it’s driving me mad!! >.<

  24. Samantha

    I would get giddy and fill my basked with gorgeousness for my wedding. I’d spend more than I’d save and have to be frugal with the truth to my betrothed

  25. Emma Thompson

    I would buy my fiance a little gift and use the rest to buy goodies for my friends hen weekend as I’m MOH:)

  26. Sarah

    Crikey, decisions, decisions!! It would have to be something adorable for my daughter or a new bag for me!! xx

  27. Laura Clutterbuck

    Definitely some glitter devil horns from Crown and Glory and a stack ring with the word love stamped into it or a pink ruby stack ring for myself, to remind myself that I am awesome and made it through a year of hell last year stronger and happier than ever!

  28. Claire

    I would buy something beautiful for my two besties, because they’re amazing. And some kick ass writing paper and stickers so I can write to them lots!! 🙂
