If you think handwritten notes are outdated, you're missing an opportunity to show your loved ones you really care: Three-quarters of millennials say that mail from family and friends makes them feel special.

Since it's increasingly rare to actually get something in your mailbox rather than your inbox, you'll stick out that much more if you go to the effort. So, this Valentine's Day, put those forever stamps to use (or snag a cute set of vintage stamps to make your envelopes even prettier). We pulled together some of the cutest, funniest and most impressive cards we could find to wow everyone you adore.

Celebrate your quarantine buddy and all the time you've spent stuck inside binge-watching Bridgerton together with the most modern of modern love Valentine's Day cards from Black-owned Posterity Paper.

After a year of tremendous loss, Valentine's Day will feel quite different for so many. Instead of ignoring the obvious, send a heartfelt message from Wishbar, which worked with a grief counselor to create messages of sympathy, support and care. You can order a blank card and write in your own message personally, or you can opt for Wishbar to handwrite a message on your behalf and send it directly to the recipient. They also have grief counselor-approved messages you can choose from if you need some help finding the right words to say.
