Not on the High Street | The Perfect Valentine's Card

Valentine’s Day – for some it’s a time to celebrate your relationship with your partner, for others it’s a time to moan about the fact there shouldn't need to be a specific day to celebrate & for the singletons it’s a time to get merry with your best single friend and love one another!

Whether you like Valentine’s Day or not, it’s quite nice finding a little shop that does the perfect card for any occasion eh? I’m not going to lie – this post is 100% dedicated to the ‘Valentine’s’ section, but I promise, even if you hate this particular day of the year you’ll find some fantastic things on this site.

I’m a little bit done with Moonpig – I mean yeah it’s great to be able to add photo’s to a card and make it a touch more personal, but to be honest I don’t find that their cards have much pizzazz or personality. Not on the High Street has been one of my go-to shops for a long time. Not just for cards, their little quirky personalised gifts are right up my street (get it?) from Birthday’s to Wedding's they have everything you could need under one roof.
I thought you might quite like to see my favourite picks from their Valentine's Section... 
(Images from Not on the High Street, edited by me) L-R: You’ll Do Nicely, I only have eyes for you, I love your face, It all began, Kissing couple, Perfect together, Days I've loved you, Couple card, A true love story.

They're all quite simplistic and similar in design, but I much prefer subtlety over gushing love poems - just personal preference :) - of course if you wan't smooshy love stuff they have that too! I usually alternate each year - either making a card myself or purchasing one. This year is the turn for purchasing! Can you guess which one I chose from the above?

So what do you think of NOTHS - have you heard of them before? And what does Valentine's mean to you?

These are so pretty! I love how simplistic they are too.
I made my own Valentines day card this year... just wish I could cut in a straight line lol

I definitely fall into the hating valentines category, but I must admit I love a lot of the cards you've featured..much better than the soppy rubbish in shops! xx

These are all so cute. I haven't heard of NOTHS before. I bought my valentines card from etsy- they have really similar styles to these (maybe even the same!). Mine wasn't a typical valentines card as my boyfriend isn't really a fan but hey ho- I'm sure he'll like the tongue in cheek one I got :)

I love these cards, they are gorgeous. I hate moon pig, it is AWFUL. My favourite card shop is Scribble, but I am going to check these out, and cheekily leave a post it with this link on for Scott to see. We are not together for Valentines this year, which would be our first "real" one together... last year we had Mcdonalds in bed watching a film as everywhere was closed on the island, how romantic ;)

If he doesn't buy me a bloody card (he doesn't do cards) at least I can send myself one! haha.

Oh my, that 'you'll do nicely' one is PERFECT. My boyfriend doesn't really care for valentines I don't think, but I'm gonna get him that anyway, I think he'll appreiciate the un-soppy-ness of it.


I feel the same about Valentines cards, less is definitely more.
I always design the kind of cards I would like to buy.
I'd love it if you had a peek on my etsy shop : )

Lauren said...

I ADORE this website! I just made a huge order but didn't even think to look at their valentines cards, they're so cute!

Charlie said...

ahhh i bought the gin and tonic one for my bf but was worried it was a bit cheesy! Ill put it in a frame for myself if he doesn't like it haha xx

molly said...

Leanne Rachel said...

These cards are so cute! I really like NOTHS, they have some really original things :) xxx

I LOVE every little bit about these cards! I'm especially fond of the "You'll Do Nicely" one :)

beauty & truth

Fatzee said...

The cards are cute! I have already purchased mine and hidden them away in my drawer....teehee ;)


katymitten said...

I hate to admit it, but I hate valentines day.. Yet I still secretly get Little B a card, because i'm weird like that. Actually, I don't get a card, I tend to browse around (for cards JUST like these) and then skankily make one myself kinda copying I guess. OOOPS! xx

Laura Bella said...

I had a look on there website found a lush one but they only sold it in weird colours :( x

AmyBell said...

These are potentially the best cards I've seen in a long time! I've got a bit of card OCD - I'll actually trawl around shops until I find the perfect one - so I'll need to check these out! x

Martha Woods said...

Those are such cute cards! Much better than the cheesy gushy ones.

Mona said...

Oh, I wish I'd seen these cute cards before the 14th! They are all sorts of adorable! I especially like the personalised 6th one!
