Valentines for Boys
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.

Lego-style Valentine Cards
I love this colorful design that looks like a heart made of Legos. Reminds me of our living room floor! (Yep, one of my guys is still into Legos!)
Shark Valentine Cards
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!
Dragon Valentine Cards
Reluctant card-giver? Tell him this one's called the angry dragon Valentine and he'll warm up.
Lego Valentine Cards
As a mom of 3 sons, I'm familiar with all phases of Legomania. Here, Lego valentines with a fun interactive element, in the form of a sticker puzzle.
Astronaut Valentine Cards
School-age would-be space explorers will like this astronaut Valentine. Customize it with a photo!
Monster Valentine Cards
Lovable monsters for your lovable monster ;)
Guitar Valentine Cards
This rock and roll Valentine features bright, bold colors and a design that works for boys of all ages. Vibrant & versatile.
Race Car Valentine Cards
A fast track to fun on Feb. 14.
Football Valentine Stickers
Touchdown! A great choice for the sports nut. Crisp & clean, to stick on candy. Bonus points: half the design proceeds benefit Save the Children.
Pick from styles...

At what age should a boy stop giving out Valentines?
Superhero Valentine Cards
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.
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!
Baseball valentine stickers
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.
Friendly Alien Valentine Stickers
A similar theme, but these out-of-this world personalized stickers for Valentine candy are designed in "big boy friendly" black and neon.
Digger Valentine Cards
I dig this fun digger valentine ;)
Rock-and-Roll Valentine Stickers
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.
Pirate Valentine Cards
These pirate valentines are harrrrrd to resist!
Nutty Valentine Stickers
If there are no allergies in class (check with the teacher!), stick these on PayDay bars, bags of Peanut M&Ms, or America's number-one candy: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups :)
Fierce Dragon Valentine Cards
Just a touch gothic, these are some fierce & fiery dragon Valentines.
Printable Dragon Valentines
free printable cards
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
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?
