I spend a lot of time (and money!) on Etsy, so I thought it’d be fun to start putting together a few posts that group some of my favorite items and sellers into themed guides. And what more timely place to start than Valentine’s day?
Part 1 focuses on cards for bookworms. Most of the cards on Etsy are comparable in price to the generic cards at chain stores, and much cheaper than buying cards at specialty card stores. Shipping is pretty inexpensive on most of these, especially if you buy more than one card from the same seller.
I hope you enjoy them! Part 2 of Valentine’s Day Etsy Finds will feature gift ideas for bookworms.
Let’s start with my favorite card. Like the best love stories, it has it all. Extremely romantic? check. Castle? check. Horse? check. Knight in shining armor? check. (Steed Love, $4)
This card is spectacular and perfect for anyone who loves Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The inside has a foil wrapper that the receiver can pull away to view a custom message. (Custom Valentine Golden Ticket Scratch Card, $7)
For many book lovers, it doesn’t get any more romantic that Jane Austen. Here’s a good Jane quote for a fellow Janeite. (Jane Austen card – Crossed in Love, $4)
And how about this Mr. Darcy quote? (Valentines Day Card – Pride and Prejudice Quote, $3)
A date due slip card, the inside reads “I’m checking you out!” (flirty library card, $4)
For a long distance Valentine… the inside reads “like the dickens” (Miss You Like the Dickens card, $2)
Louisa May knows what’s up. (It takes two flints to make a fire – Louisa May Alcott quote – letterpress card, $4)
Another date due card Valentine – adorable! (letterpress library card – happy valentines day, $5)
Perfect for all word lovers- a set of the definition of love Valentines. (Set of Four Letterpress Valentines and Envelopes – Definition of Love, $12.50)
