Funny Valentine’s Day 2018 cards that will make your partner chuckle

Keep Valentine’s Day casual this year and celebrate with silliness.

If flowery notes and sappy poetry make you want to cringe and your partner is more likely to giggle in the face of a grand romantic gesture, you are not alone. A lot of people would rather celebrate Valentine's Day with a laugh than with a candle lit dinner.

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

5 reasons to replace that ‘I love you’ message in your Valentine’s Day card

Valentine’s Day is fun reason to get romantic, but who said romance has to be serious? Here’s why you should consider replacing the sappy stuff with humour.

  • Often a silly and funny message is more romantic.
  • If you plan on wooing a secret admirer, injecting a bit of humour will make you seem a bit cooler and a bit more casual.
  • Funny messages are (duh!) more fun to write. There is less pressure to find that perfect turn of phrase and the moment when you give your gift will be more relaxed.
  • It shows you don’t take yourself too seriously.
  • Laughter heals all wounds!

How to write your own funny message

  • Keep away from things which may cause offence. Emotions have the tendency to run high on Valentine’s Day and you don’t want your message taken the wrong way.
  • 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.
