Valentines for Boys

Updated on May 14, 2014

Cool valentine card & sticker designs for boys ages preschool to teen

Ah, the plight of a boy on February 14. You want to give & get valentines -- or depending on the grade & teacher, maybe you're being compelled to hand them out -- but only if they're cool. No lacy pink hearts or glittery puppy pictures need apply. You want a valentine card that rolls with the themes of friendship and (cough) love but still says "hey, I'm a guy!"

My teen sons have more or less stopped giving cards on the Day of Love, except to a couple of key long-distance family members through the mail, but I well remember the challenge of finding appropriate designs all those years when they did. To spare you some of that aggravation, here are some of my favorite valentines for boys at various ages and stages.

I'm particularly partial to this great white shark Valentine, as one of my boys is fascinated by the ocean and developed a special attachment to sharks & rays, starting around kindergarten. Great design!

Superhero Valentine Cards

Personalized!

Have a super duper superhero fan, like our young neighbor next door, but want a break from movie marketing? Here's a classy superhero Valentine the little guys will love.

Bug Valentines

Boys & bugs go together like cake and ice cream. These cards are a bit controversial due to the scents, so be sure to read the description & customer reviews before you choose these!

Another athletically inclined option, this time featuring a kid's art. What makes this an especially (pun intended) great catch? Half the design proceeds benefit Save the Children.

Angry Birds Valentine Cards

Got an Angry Birds addict? These valentines are sure to please.

A similar theme, but these out-of-this world personalized stickers for Valentine candy are designed in "big boy friendly" black and neon.

Personalized!

Simply cool, these guitar-themed Valentine stickers featuring a teen's artwork turn any pack of candy or gum into an instant greeting .

~~~Valentine Candy That ROCKS~~~

Personalized Valentine stickers on candy has been a huge time saver for our family, and a lot of fun. Of the various types of candy my sons have given out, the biggest hits at school have been Pop Rocks valentines, hands down. We buy 'em in bulk for the occasion. Great match for the "rock on" sticker above.

Robot Valentine Cards

Cutie-pie robots are great for younger boys.

Star Wars Valentine Cards

May the force be with your son on Valentine's Day.

I wanted to include some printable valentines for boys on this page but was a bit disappointed with what I found online. (Do post in the Comments, if you've got a good lead.) I did find this brightly colored dragon valentine set from ziggityzoom.com, cute for preschool age boys,

Valentine Heart Stickers -- Guy Style

Personalized!

A steel-gray background and edgy fonts keep these Valentine heart stickers from being too sugary. The first design is great for all ages, the second tailor-made for jaded tweens.

Rockets, dinos, guitars, characters -- or something else? What will your son's Valentines look like this year?
