Valentine's Day gift ideas for lovebirds who know what they like
Are you simply not that into all that sickly sweet Valentine's stuff? Why not embrace the hype this year instead of resisting so stubbornly? There are alternatives, you know, like this series of atypical Valentine's Day cards, which get rid of all those silly clichés once and for all with a bow and arrow.
We've really had it with the annual box of chocolates that is dropped into our lap on Valentine's Day. And yet we would like to show the apple of our eye how much we love him or her this year (albeit in a more controversial fashion). These original postcards will conjure a big smile on their face. After all, isn't that what Valentine's Day is all about?
These very straightforward cards, by Tineke Hoet and Elke Deceuninck of KEET, are very to the point. No beating around the bush... just say it: JE T'AIME!
