and Galentines

February 14th doesn’t just need to be a day where you express romantic love. Let your heart lead the way and celebrate all kinds of love this Valentine’s Day. There may be one cherished close friend, a special little group you celebrate Galantine’s with, or a sister from another mister who makes everything that little bit better, whoever they are, send them a card and let them know they’re special to you, with one of these lovely messages.


  • Happy heart day to a magical friend

For the Kids

Along with celebrating your friends, telling your kids how much you love them, and helping them to express their love for others, is a really fun and important thing to do on Valentine’s Day. Although the words written in these Valentine cards won’t be romantic, February 14th is still a wonderful day to express appreciation and affection, share kind and loving thoughts with your kids, and help them share their own feelings with the people most important to them.


  • You make the world a lovelier place. Love you lots and lots
  • Every day with you is the nicest of all. Have an extra-special day
  • You’re just funny, kind and an all-round amazing daddy! What’s not to love!
  • You’re such a kind and loving mummy. Every time I’m with you I burst with happiness
  • Hope you know that you’re our favourite person. Love you to the moon and back!
  • Wishing you everything that makes you heart happiest today!

But, whichever you choose, just let your heart lead the way and remember that Valentine’s Day is a lovely opportunity to show and tell someone you love them, not an annual test each February 14th!
