Art to Heart

Six days left and zero tolerance. Just the idea of spending hours reading every card in that profusely pink aisle has you ready to fold.

To write it off. To get ripped.

Before you run ragged (or tear the poor worker at the card shop a new one) check out a few Valentine's Day cards we're sure you'll heart.

Lei Chic
Be Exclusive
The best things in life are free so add these six adorable prints to that list. Each complimentary card is drawn up a member of AIGA Honolulu, the professional association for design, and can be signed with your personal message, sealed, and delivered by February 14 if ordered in the next 48 hours.
Limit three cards per customer. Click here to order until 10 a.m. Friday.

Lei Chic
A Past-ionate Affair
Prove your love is timeless with one-of-a-kind vintage valentines. Jump for the parachuter ($18), warm up with the Hawaii-themed couple ($38), or cruise through a whole collection of cards, including a rare hula skirt clad Minnie Mouse from the 30s.
Tincan Mailman, 1026 Nuuanu Ave. 808.524.3009.

Lei Chic
To Have and to Gold
Even simple sentiments glimmer when done in 22-karat gold leaf. Bradley & Lily hand letters romantic phrases like "at last", "be mine", or "xoxo" for an elegant look with a lot of heart.
