The Perfect Valentine's Day Card for Our Times

By Brian Barrett on at

You haven't made Valentine's Day plans yet. That's okay! Who needs 'em? Manufactured holiday, singlehood empowerment, overpriced prix fixe menus. But if you must make a romantic gesture next month, let it be this card. It sums up modern relationships pretty much perfectly.

From the inspired mind of Emily McDowell, the  greeting crams more sentiment into 24.75 square inches of heavyweight matte stock than a dozen roses or sonnets ever could:

There is nobody else else I'd rather lie in bed and look at my phone next to.

It's priced at £2.78 though, shipping from the US, it may struggle to get here in time for the big day, leaving your bed empty of a card-courted human companion (but with plenty of room left for your smartphone to snuggle up in). [Etsy via Cup of Jo]
