Non-virtual valentines

Posted by: in Things To Watch

In the digital era, saying “I love you” has become so easy, there’s even a Facebook app to do it for you. But these days people are craving physical tokens rather than virtual ones: The idea of Objectifying Objects is one of our 10 Trends for 2012, and stationery is among our 100 Things to Watch for this year. As we noted last November, various digital services now help people send real-world messages. For Valentine’s Day, eHarmony Australia developed an easy way to create a keepsake. For those who “like” the online dating site’s Facebook page and fill in the relevant details, eHarmony’s “Calligraphy Cupids” will craft a handwritten love letter and deliver it. —Will Palley
