Sainsbury's is selling same-sex Valentine's Day cards for the first time ever

Post by eddie on Thu Feb 09, 2017 10:45 am

With Valentine’s Day just one week away, it’s time to start wading through the fluffy bears and love hearts to find the perfect card - but if you’re a gay couple, this can be hard to find.

Until now, many same-sex couples have had to improvise with generic cards that make no suggestion of gender, but supermarket giant Sainsbury’s is about to change all that.

For the first time, Sainsbury’s is selling a range of Valentine’s Day cards that represent same-sex couples.

The simple designs feature illustrations of a woman and a woman, and a man and a man, with the caption ‘You + Me.’

About time. Nice.

My general feeling on greetings cards is they are a waste of money lol

But this is still very cute and well overdue. Nice one Sainsbury's Smile

I can't believe valentine cards for same sex couples are new on the market.
If they are, it's about time. I love you

I cant believe anyone falls for this exploitation no matter what sex they are.
