12 brutally honest Valentine's Day cards for your loved one

Despite feeling like we’ve only just got over one holiday of forced fun, Valentine’s Day is about to arrive armed with an anticipation of deep declarations of love and at least a good excuse for a fancy dinner.

But walk down a card aisle and the only feelings you’re sure to catch are ones of nausea. Garish red cards with gushy messages that you would never, ever say out of self-respect will have you thinking your partner will leave you if you get them one rather than cement your relationship.

In the interest of not selling yourself short, here are some alternative options that relay your realness and won’t leave either of you cringing:

For the couple who scroll together

Get it here.

For those who like Netflix

Get it here.

For someone with an imagination

Get it here.

For the anti-consumerist

Get it here.

For the right-swipers

Get it here.

For The Walking Dead fan

Get it here.

For the confessor

Get it here.

For someone who's not the average Joe

Get it here.

For the gumpy but soft

Get it here.

For the punny

Get it here.

For those who can't be bothered

Get it here.

For the Game of Thrones fan who is not of many words

Get it here.
