Let's just get this out there: Valentine's Day does not have to be a romantic holiday. Because, yes, Valentine's Day is pretty much a fake holiday, so we get to change the rules to whatever we want to support our card-giving whims.
Here at Freckle & Fair, we love V-Day as a way to tell everyone how much you love them. That could be your significant other, but it also could include your bestie, your mom, your neighbor, or that guy at the bagel shop who always gives you extra schmear (lox of love!).
And thank goodness we've got cards to cover them all, in the dorkiest or sassiest or most passive-aggressive fashion. However you choose to celebrate Valentine's Day — binge-eating self-bought boxes of chocolate in front of "The Mindy Project," making a home-cooked dinner for your boo, or getting toasted with your best gal pals, we hope to help you spread the love in paper form. So, make this Valentine's Day silly and fun and not expensive with these sweet and sarcastic notes from us to whomever you decide to give them to — because we appreciate you, too!
Whether you have a hate-hate, love-hate or love-love relationship relationship with the holiday, we've got you covered. All you need is a printer and a pair of scissors. But for extra points, pick up some special envelopes and even some glitter if you're feeling ornery. If paper and stamps are too much a commitment, download the digital versions and email away. I guess you could even Tweet them, if the level of commitment that email implies is still too much for you and your bae.
