Vintage Valentine: 50 Punny, Adorable And Retro V-Day Cards


When we think about what Valentine's Day meant to us as kids, we remember asking our parents to buy us the "cool" cards or making paper bag baskets to collect valentines in class.

Valentine's Day cards are supposed to be cute, corny and simple. Looking back at the '40s and '50s, things were generally the same, but just a little punnier. Cards had big-eyed animals, big-headed children and incredibly cheesy puns that might make you cringe or giggle, depending on your temperament.

But this year, if you're looking for the perfect card, we say old is gold. Find a vintage card below and send it as an e-card for your loved one — you can always attach a sappy love e-mail with it as well. We've rounded up 50 of our favourite cards from Etsy and Pinterest and not surprisingly, you can buy a lot of them on eBay starting at $3.

LOOK — 50 vintage Valentine's Day cards that will make you laugh out loud. Don't forget to share them with your friends, or visit our Pinterest board to save them for yourself!
