Valentine’s Day in elementary school was the best, simply because of the actual valentines. Stuffed with candy, covered in glitter, or rocking the latest kid-movie characters, opening a stack of cards was the most exciting thing in the world. Now that we’re grown up, Valentine’s Day is a little different. But the core idea is the same: It’s a chance to send some love to the people in your life, whether it’s your mom, best friend, or spouse. The problem is, of course, that the Valentine’s Day cards available in stores are pretty much the worst—either Hallmark cheesy or Spencer’s-level vulgar. Luckily, indie designers have come to the rescue, creating awesome cards that won’t make you embarrassed to send. Here are 10 of our favorites for the people in your life.
