9 Great Sites to Use for Sending Free Valentine Ecards

Give Your Friends, Relatives and Coworkers Something to Smile About

Traditionally, we've always given paper Valentine cards to people we admire and care about on February 14th. But these these days, there are all sorts of sites that bring us up to speed with modern internet technology by offering us free Valentine ecards to send to our friends and loved ones.

Now that we spend so much time checking email, texting on smartphones and browsing social networking sites to see what our friends are up to, an electronic version often just makes sense. It doesn't really replace the old school way of doing it, but it's a nice gesture nonetheless. 

Of course, you don't want to send just any old Valentine card that isn't funny or heartfelt. You'll need to pick from some good ones.

Check out the list of sites below that offer some of the best choices.

As one of the most popular ecard producers on the web, you’ll be sure to brighten someone's V-Day with a virtual card from Someecards. The graphics aren’t exactly incredible since they’re kept super simple, but that’s part of what makes them special and very identifiable on the web. If you know anyone who loves blunt and often vulgar humor, Someecards will be a sure-fire winner.

Several years ago, it was a bit of a big trend to use JibJab, which is a fun little tool that allows you to paste photos of your face onto some dancing Christmas elves for a ridiculously entertaining and personalized video. Now, JibJab has dancing characters for the Valentine variety too. These are really fun if you want something a little different from the more basic Valentine ecards, and there are lots of JibJab ecards to choose from!
