It’s Valentine’s Day in a few weeks, the ultimate love-with-a-capital-L holiday. But every time February rolls around, we find ourselves feeling a little hesitant about it. Both of us have been lucky in love—and when we look at everything in the rearview mirror, sometimes not so lucky. Can you relate? We think most people can.
We both feel deeply grateful for our partners. (They’re awesome.) But we also feel deep gratitude for our friends, our kids and grandkids, special neighbors that make our lives brighter, our pets. Love is anything but one-dimensional.
Why not celebrate all of this? Why not throw all the love we give and receive into a giant bottle, shake it up, and let it flow? Why not fling big, messy ribbons of love to the sky? Tell everyone you love them that you love them. Period. No need to make it only a romantic thing. Connection and collective joy is something big and beautiful. Let’s celebrate that.
If this resonates, we have cards for you. Lots of them. Cards that celebrate a romantic partnership. Cards that tell a friend they’re the best. Cards that are like paper snuggle for your kids, your mom, your co-worker.
These cards don’t say “Happy Valentine’s Day.” Because they’re more about widening our sphere of love, no matter what’s happening on the calendar. We like to call them our just-because-love cards, good to send on any occasion or no occasion to the people who matter most. Here’s a list of the ones that come to mind for us first. You can also browse all our love cards.
With that, a happy Valentine’s Day to you and all of yours!
