After the events of the last year, I think we could all use a hug and a sweet treat on Valentine's Day, so I've put together a list of 25 of my most popular DIY printable candy hugger cards. They are available in a few different sizes and formats, but they are all designed to 'hug' a treat in a some way.
These cute little aliens can hold any kind of candy or treat, but Milky Ways are both delicious and delightfully punny! Aliens...from the Milky Way...get it? ;)
Hey all you cool cats and kittens, this valentine combo pack is for you! It comes with four different cat hugger designs so you can mix it up a little bit.
This fearsome combo pack features punny T. Rex, Triceratops, and Pterodactyl huggers. Each dinosaur comes in two colors so you really get 6 unique cards!
Like all my hugger designs, these porpoises can hold a small piece of candy or a fun toy like a small container of bubbles or a cute eraser. They can also be packaged in a small plastic bag with a cookie or other type of homemade goodie for an extra special treat.
These well-dressed llama huggers are in a different format - they are designed to 'hug' a fun-size bag of Skittles or M&Ms with all four of their legs. This type of design will require the use of an X-acto knife to cut along the lines.
This is yet another format of hugger - this friendly T. rex can hold a pencil, pixie stix, a glow stick, a sucker, or a small candy bar. Again, this type of hugger will require an X-acto knife to cut along the lines. Depending on what you want the dinosaur to hug, you can cut the slits to different sizes.
Whoa dude, share some righteous Valentine's Day vibes with these little sea turtle huggers.
These pups have the classic bulldog underbite and tough-guy collars, but we all know they are really just love-a-bull softies!
This printable comes with two adorable matching bunny designs. Bunnies might traditionally be associated with Easter but there's no reason we can't have a 'hoppy' Valentine's Day as well!
We can only hope to one day be as cool as this chin-chillaxer. Just look at those shades!
These two corgis are very dapper in their Valentine's Day sweater and scarf. Such distinguished puppers!
I mean...have you ever seen anything cuter than these duckies?!
Next up in our menagerie of animal valentines are these blushing ferrets offering punny declarations of love.
These adorable foxes are keeping it simple with a classic "Happy Valentine's Day" message.
Hedgehogs sometimes get a bad rap for being prickly and sharp, but they are actually SO cute and friendly. Look at those little feet!
Oui oui, French is one the most elegant romance languages! Especially when delivered by a Frenchie with a beret and dapper mustache.
These heart-covered giraffes are designed to hold a fun-size bag of candies in their loooong legs.
These cutesy pugs sport pink glasses and a precious pink bow. Don't worry, if you aren't into pink and bows, I've also got a more neutral pug hugger
No menagerie would be complete without the perennial favorite, the guinea pig!
And of course, we've got to include hamsters to round out the rodent family.
HAY all you horse lovers, here's a candy hugger valentine for you!
Turn any kind of long skinny treat or toy into a eucalyptus home for these adorable Valentine's Day koalas.
These lions say "Happy Valentine's Day" to everyone except Carole Baskin (she definitely killed her husband).
These bashful little sea cows just want to give you a hug and a candy! They considerately decided candy is a better offering for humans than their preferred treat of fish. Good call guys.
Did you know that otters hold hands when they are sleeping to avoid drifting apart from their friends? Now that's a true friend.
If you didn't see your favorite animal on this list, don't worry - there are more species and breeds available on my website, including owls, pandas, penguins, various cats and dogs, polar bears, a robot (not an animal I know, but still an option!), sloths, tigers, more dinosaurs, unicorns, and more!
