About this time every year I’ll talk profess my hatred of Valentine’s day and then still do a post on it… The thing is, I know I’m in the minority, and i think it’s good to have an excuse to champion some independent UK companies/illustrators/designers. I thought the best way to do this would be to share some Instagram posts from some of my favourite Valentine’s cards from this year:

Oh, and if you’re still looking for the perfect gift, I pulled together some bits from The Stationer that I thought would make a nice present. Shop Valentine’s now.
