Be Still My Heart: Romantic Designs for Your Best Valentine’s Day Ever

Valentine’s Day isn’t for everyone. While paper-crafted, heart-shaped cards covered in glitter make some giddy, the pressure of creating a romantic memory for the object of your affection can be overwhelming. Not to mention, some of us feel more fondly for our friends or pets than our significant other. 

So whatever holiday you choose to celebrate on February 14—Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day (thanks, Leslie!), or Singles Awareness Day—we’ve got the right design to match your mood. Find a style to wear to that fancy dinner you’ve got planned or to rock at the karaoke bar with your friends. Gift a design to someone you care about that says how you feel or make a coworker laugh with a punny design. You don’t have to love love to love these designs.

I’ll Never Let Go” design by Lim Heng Swee

Endearing in an annoying, possibly creepy way, this design showcases how you and your person might be feeling on this holiday.

Stick together wearing this design for Lego lovers and couples of all kinds.  

Soy Good Together

Z-Day” design by Ronan Lynam

If Valentine’s Day is in no way your thing but zombies are, this design’s for you. It marries blood, gore, and the romance of the undead. Wear this design to a Valentine’s Day party and make the love birds shutter. Zombies have feelings too. (Or do they?)   

Brains Over Beauty

Design by Petr Stepanov
I Love Science” design by Petr Stepanov 

You don’t have to focus on who you love this Valentine’s Day, instead, focus on what you love. Like science! Use your brain and grab this design on a tee to wear at your office celebration. Let your coworkers know your heart belongs to science. 

Cheer up, buttercup! Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a bummer. You can embrace however you feel about the holiday, and wear your heart on your sleeve with these designs. Celebrate however you want, but we recommend eating at least a handful of those conversation hearts while wearing your favorite Valentine’s Day design.
