7 Fantastic Freebie Valentines Day Printables

With Valentine’s Day being a scant three days away some of you might be scurrying for last minute V-Day gift ideas. Luckily you have powerful tool to your disposal – that would be a little thing called the World Wide Web. The internet is filled with all kinds of awesome, affordable, unique gift ideas. In addition, we here at the Tabloid have made your search all that much easier. We have done the legwork for you…

We found seven playful, quirky and bright printables that will make excellent Valentine’s Day gifts or greetings for your loved one. Did I mention they are absolutely mahhala, for free, verniet?

Freebie printables are an excellent solution if you are low on time and funds. As most printables are designed by talented creatives and trained designers or artist, they are also, in most cases, less cheesy than the average heart-shaped, glitter-dusted, corny Valentine’s Day DIY.

Just download the printable greeting of your choice and print it out. For something a bit more professional you can pop down to your local printers during your lunch hour and have it printed on good quality card stock. You can also go one step further by purchasing a sleek box-frame to put your V-Day print in – hello quirky love-inspired wall art!
