Either way A.G.papertoys is here to help you celebrate the one day of the year it’s not awkward to buy your special lady lingerie. Let’s face it, valentines day is a made up holiday that exists purely to make single people feel bad, so why not wave one of these downloadable, fold-able gifts in there lonely faces.
It’s recommended by nine out of ten doctors to not give someone your heart in a literal sense, as in most cases, this leads to death… So instead give them a paper one, it looks better than a card but admittedly isn’t as soft and hug-able as a teddy bear.
