Funny Valentine’s Day cards 2019

Get quirky this Valentine's Day with a card designed to make your loved one laugh.

If flowery notes and sappy poetry make you cringe, you're not alone. A lot of people would rather celebrate Valentine's Day with something more lighthearted than a candlelit dinner or a grand gesture. A playful card is an opportunity to say how you really feel in a way that's fun and shows off your unique personality.

Read on for the perfect antidote to Valentine’s Day mush: humour with a twist of cynicism.

Five reasons to replace a mushy message with something fun

Valentine’s Day is a fun excuse to get romantic, but who said romance has to be serious? Here’s why you should consider replacing the sappy stuff with some well placed humour instead:

  • A funny message can sometimes be more thoughtful. Adding in a joke that's just between the two of you can remind your partner of the good times you've shared and the bond you have.
  • It mixes things up! Instead of trying to find different ways to write the same message each year, writing something with a bit of humour can make this year's card stand out and give your partner something to remember.
  • Humorous messages can make the moment you give your card more relaxed, which is especially great if you and your sweetheart haven't been together all that long.
  • It shows you don’t take yourself too seriously, whilst still giving you the opportunity to show you care.
  • Sharing a laugh is an important part of any relationship and who doesn't want to make their loved one smile?

How to write your own funny message

  • Keep away from things which may cause offence. Know your partner and their limits. If you're not sure if a line may cause offence, it's probably best to leave it out.
  • Stick to appropriate messages that are silly and sweet rather than sharp. Puns are always a top choice.
  • Have a go at a funny poem. It doesn’t need to be a masterpiece to be appreciated, just honest and expressive.

If you're stuck for ideas, you can ‘choose a message out of a hat’ with a web based silly message generator. Just click ‘Next Message’ for fun, unique (and sometimes naughty) messages.
