There are three kinds of people in the world. The ones who cannot stand Valentine’s Day, moan about the extremely cheesy cards and gifts that spread in shops like flu and do everything to underline they have absolutely no intention to acknowledge this day exists. And the ones who think that 14th of February is the best day of the year (apart from Christmas, nothing can beat Christmas). Finally, there are the people, like myself, who find themselves somewhere in between these two categories. I don’t particularly like Valentine’s Day, but use it as an extra occasion to eat chocolate and drink champagne. And I’m always on the lookout for the non-cheesy ways to say ‘I love you’, which proves to be more difficult every year.
But not anymore.
YouSaidIt is a company that created a solution to my problem. They sell a variety of cards for different occasions which aim to offend the recipient but in a humorous way. A little bit of banter never hurt nobody. The level of rudeness varies from mild to so rude it made me blush a couple of times when I was browsing the website. They have cards for virtually every occasion, even break-up/divorce. It may or may not include phrases like ‘I hope you get to keep the house’ and ‘I can’t believe it lasted that long’. But I don’t want to spoil it too much for you. Apart from cards, the company also sells pocket mirrors, badges and rude mugs. What’s a better way to tell people to keep away from your mug at work than having something offensive written on it?
My order was processed very quickly and I received the card just a few days after purchasing. It arrived in a hardback envelope which was a lovely surprise as I half-expected my postman to treat it to the usual ‘let’s bend it in half and push through the letterbox‘ routine. I bet he was really disappointed when he couldn’t damage this one. The card itself is made of amazing quality paper. It is glossy coated on the outside (Premium triple coated for those of you who like to know all the details) which gives it this nice luxurious look. The inside of it is empty to let you write your own little message. I love getting creative and making my own poems or drawings inside cards.
Don’t worry if you’re not into hand-writing in cards – YouSaidIt gives you an option to personalise the cards with a message inside already printed for you. The cards retail at £2.99 each which compared to card prices at some other places seems like a real bargain. The cards measure 15cmx15cm and come with an envelope in a colour of your choice. I went for gold but if it’s not your kind of thing you can easily choose a more traditional look. You can choose to have it delivered to you or straight to the person it’s meant for – or ‘the victim’ as the company likes to call the recipients. It can be really convenient if you don’t want anyone to know the card was from you. Pretty handy if you’re not exactly sure if someone will appreciate this type of humour.I really like the fact that more and more people are realising that love and relationships don’t always have to be cute, cheesy and full of love hearts. And that sometimes it actually means a lot more to give a hilarious or rude card about the little things. If you know someone who would appreciate this type of gift, why not give them an extra opportunity to laugh? After all, laughter is the best way to get a six-pack, at least that’s what I’ve heard. You can check out YouSaidIt products on their website – even browsing their page will make you giggle.
