Remember the days in school when your parents would buy you a pack of perforated Valentine’s cards to give out to your classmates? And if you were lucky, they might have Star Wars on them?

This is basically the adult version of those, except now you get to pick the exact design you want. Made by Etsy artist Player No 2., each of these clever cards references some of our favorite nerdy franchises, including Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Pokémon, and Studio Ghibli’s excellent films.

The cards are $4.61 each, or you can buy two and get a third free. If you’re into writing with cute pens too, the shop also has a nice selection of those. Whoever your Valentine is, they’re going to be really happy this holiday.
