It can be tricky picking the perfect Valentine’s Day card for your partner – cue way too long spent staring at the shelves, deliberating over which one to go for.

For same-sex couples, it can be even harder – having to make do with a generic card that doesn’t have an illustration or wording suggesting any particular gender.

But hats off to Sainsbury’s, because they’re now selling same-sex cards for the first time. *raises hands*

The cute cards have a simple design featuring illustrations of a man and a man, and a woman and a woman, along with the words ‘You + Me’.

N’awwwww – take a look at the cards for yourselves.

James Brown, Director of Commercial at Sainsbury’s Argos, said: “Choosing the perfect Valentine’s Day card is a personal and sentimental experience, which is why we’re pleased to offer new same-sex cards and give all of our love-stricken customers the ability to choose the card that’s right for them.”

FYI, the prices for the cards start at £1.99, and they’ve been introduced to 500 stores across the country.

The supermarket’s move has been met with a lot of joyous approval on Twitter, although some people can’t wrap their heads around the fact it’s taken this long.

Well, here’s hoping we see more and more same-sex cards for sale from now on.
