Even though Valentine’s Day might feel a little bit different this year if you’re not physically able to be with your loved ones, there are still plenty of ways to show love from afar.

While you could send flowers or houseplants or special sweet treats, you can’t go wrong with a classic greeting card, especially if it has a creative twist.

There’s nothing better than receiving a surprise in the mail from a loved one. While sending greeting cards has been a tradition since the 1400s (yes, the first handmade Valentine’s Day cards were exchanged in 1415), the company Lovepop has completely reinvented the traditional greeting card.

Founded in 2014, Lovepop’s cards are unlike ones you’re used to seeing on a store’s shelves. The company creates beautifully intricate 3D paper masterpieces cut from the brand’s design technology called slicegami, which is a mix of the traditional Japanese paper folding techniques origami and kirigami.

But what really put Lovepop on the map when it came to greeting cards was when the company presented its pitch on the seventh season of “Shark Tank” in 2015. Lovepop was able to make a $300,000 deal with Kevin O’Leary and has since created hundreds of new designs from a wedding collection to Disney cards.

So this year while I was searching for unique Valentine’s Day gifts, Lovepop’s flower bouquet cards caught my eye — the flower bouquets themselves pop out into a 10-inch-tall, stand-alone arrangement when unfolded.

While you can shop Lovepop’s entire selection of flower bouquet cards in its convenient Flower Shop, the company is also offering gorgeous Valentine’s Day designs — some even feature Baby Yoda and Mickey and Minnie, and you can shop some of our favorites below.

Plus, instead of receiving the card yourself first in order to write a special note and then ship it to your loved ones, Lovepop offers the convenient feature of personalizing an already included note (that can include photos too) for an additional $5.

Valentine’s Day 2021 is quickly approaching on Sunday, Feb. 14, but if you order before Feb. 8, you can still receive free delivery with the card arriving by Valentine’s Day.
