Valentine's Day is right around the corner, but if you haven't gotten around to mailing a paper love note yet, fret not. There are plenty of fab online cards to choose from.

Are you juggling valentines this year? In grade school, it's customary to send Valentine's Day cards to the entire class — remember those perforated note cards? — but love letters designed for adults are generally sold in singles. Apparently, when we grow up, the world tells us we have to date just one of the cute boys in homeroom. But let's face it, some of us singles haven't narrowed it down yet.
If you're still weighing your options, what you need is a box set of Valentine's Day cards. One of my favorites is the Assorted Valentine's Day Set ($16) from Rifle Paper Co. The set includes four sweet, retro-inspired designs (two of each), printed in full color on natural white paper. That means you can send the word of your love, lust, affection, or what-have-you to eight of your beaus. I'm assuming that eight cards should suffice.
If you're looking for something goofier and more personal, another favorite is the Mustache Valentine Card Kit ($17 For 21), which includes paper hearts, mustaches, hats, and cards, and some silly googly eyes. Design your own based on the style of mustaches your men have been grooming!
Want to gruffly tell your Valentine that you're dangerously in love? These tongue-in-cheek valentines are perfect for all the Law & Order: SVU fans in your life, or fans of irony in general.
The SVU Valentines Set I (shown above) includes such gems as "Guilty! Of Being My Valentine," while Set II (which is new this year) has quips like "I 'Huang' to Be With You," and "You're Extra Special."
The cards are available individually for $3 each, or as sets of five for $10, so to have them in time for V-day, click here.
