May the Love Be With You This Valentine’s Day With Star Wars Pop-Up Cards
By Elaine Selna
If you're looking to combine the love you have for your significant other with your devotion to Jedi, droids, and space princesses, LovePop's 3D Star Wars Valentine's Day cards are your best bet. There's a range of fan favorites to choose from—including BB-8, Baby Yoda, and Darth Vader—and each features a unique pop-up gesture that'll be sure to set the mood.
Available for $15, the BB-8 card has the astromech droid pop up with a rose and heart in each of its metallic hands. And the heart-shaped eyes and bouquet of flowers that Darth Vader (also $15) sports on his card prove that even Sith Lords have romantic sides.
Aside from Darth Vader and BB-8, there are other Star Wars-inspired picks for $15 to choose from. You can make your special someone feel like “you’re one in a millennium” with a card featuring the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy surrounded by hearts. As the franchise’s favorite Wookiee, Chewbacca “chews you” with a card featuring the Millenium Falcon co-pilot on the front holding a heart-shaped box of chocolates and inside as a pop-up wearing heart antennae. Anyone who appreciates Cupid during this time of year may be thrilled to receive a pop-up card of Master Yoda as the Valentine's Day mascot, sporting tiny white wings and flying over a cloud of hearts with a bow and lightsaber arrow, ready to strike those in love.
You’ll also find that The Child (better known to some as Baby Yoda) is featured in two cards: one that shows him set against a backdrop of hearts and another of him holding a huge heart that says, “I’d follow you anywhere, Valentine.”
However, for those who want to gift more than just a card, LovePop has you covered. Instead of the traditional dozen roses, give a paper bouquet that'll last much longer. LovePop offers two Star Wars-themed floral paper bouquets, both available for $26 on Amazon. One shows off Princess Leia, Han Solo, and Chewbacca escaping the explosion of the Death Star with TIE fighters, X-wing fighters, and hearts all around them. The other has Darth Vader and Stormtrooper helmets scattered amid lovely paper hearts and roses that say things like, “Come to the heart side” and “I am your destiny.” There’s even a giant Baby Yoda pop-up gift ($26), which you can unfold and stand on your table to feature the tiny star of The Mandalorian wearing heart-shaped glasses while holding a bouquet. You can even get the gift as a bundle with The Child holding a heart-shaped message card for $38.
