7 Slightly Inappropriate Valentine’s Day Cards

By  |  26 Comments

oh valentine’s day. it seems as though people either love it or hate it. my husband and i definitely full-out celebrated it when we first started dating. one time he even put like 20 tea lights on top of “fun-dip candy packets” all over my bed. i’m still impressed my apartment didn’t go up in flames but it sure turned up the heat (see what i did there?!).

i still like the holiday okay because usually it’s an excuse to eat lots of chocolate and it’s a day for people to celebrate love. this year, however, we are on the whole30, which means i will be eating an apple (pretending it’s a chocolate truffle) and drinking water (pretending it’s vodka).

Slightly Inappropriate Valentien's Day Cards

my husband so isn’t into this holiday anymore because he doesn’t think our expression of love should be limited to one day. he’d rather surprise me with chocolates, flowers and a card on a random thursday. i’m good with that.

like ashley mentioned in her post yesterday about ways not go broke on valentine’s day, she doesn’t love getting cards and neither does her boyfriend. they want to spend their money on other things and that’s great because they’ve talked about expectations and wants!

i, on the other hand, love cards. you know what i love more than sweet cards? slightly inappropriate valentine’s day cards (or really any inappropriate card). here are my top favorites so i can surprise my husband with one of these later…


*bonus…because i love all things harry potter and neville longbottom got sexy so he deserves to be on a valentine’s day card!

1) are you into valentine’s day?
2) how do you feel about giving and receiving cards on special occasions?
3) are you…slightly inappropriate? oh good, come sit by me!

    OMG, I must find this beard card!! Where did you get it? 🙂

    We are officially over V-day, but that beard card has SO much potential for every occasion!

      haha i loved the beard one too, emma-even though my husband doesn’t have a beard! ha! if you click where it says ‘source’ under the photo, it will link you to the card and you can order it! some of these could be used for other occasions or random days…i’m scheming now.

    I love greeting cards. I like saving them and then going back reading all the LAME-o stuff we said to each other.
    Theoatmeal.com has some funny ones. My favorite is “I can’t stand the thought of waking up one morning and not being able to look into your eyes… which is why I’m taping them to the cat when you die”


    I guess they are more, ah, taste-less, than inappropriate, but they still made me laugh 🙂

      hahaha oh my goodness-some of those cards are for sure just plain ‘inappropriate,’ courtney! so funny. i like the cat one too and also the ‘passion like a cockroach…mostly active at night, frightens the elderly and completely impervious to nuclear weapons.” i found some just flat out nasty ones on my search for these too! ha!

      i love going back through and reading my cards too-i’m sort of a hoarder with them.

    I think my husband might need that beard card in a large-sized print. He’s pretty obsessed with his lately.

    ps. these cards are epic.

    1. I like Valentine’s Day but if you don’t have the romance for the rest of the year, what’s the point of celebrating it?
    2. I like giving and receiving cards at any time of the year. Again, if you only save them for the special occasions, what’s the point?
    3. I can be 😉

    My take on any special occasion is that if you only focus on that one day or occasion (meaning showing your love, appreciation, or any other emotion), then what’s the point? Do not the other 364 days of the year matter? If you only celebrate once a year, then you have other problems that need to be worked out. Granted it is all about expectations as well. If one partner wants (needs) to be celebrated once a year and the other wants it more often, then a discussion needs to occur. You can’t expect your partner to read your mind.

      ohh good point, pebby! you definitely need romance and appreciation the rest of the year-you’re so right! sometimes it’d make it easier of partners could read minds (probably only selective thoughts-ha) but you hit the nail on the head pebby! thank you for your comment 🙂

    I don’t like all the overpriced things associated with V-day. So we usually wait for all the candy to be discounted the next day and “celebrate” then 🙂

    And inappropriate cards are the BEST cards.

    I will absolutely come sit with you because I’m slightly inappropriate as well. (And bonkers) hahaha, see what I did there? Sorry. too far? Anyway… I love these cards. These would be perfect for me and my husband. We don’t do much to celebrate. We’re more of a random surprise couple on a thursday just because, too.
