30 Heart Puns That'll Get Your Blood Pumpin' This Valentine's Day

Originally Published: 

The day of love is creeping up on us rather quickly, and you need to make sure you're ready for it. I'm not just talking about being prepared with your dinner reservations and what outfit you're wearing. You should embrace the holiday with the perfect caption for your picture of you and your sweetheart. Even if you're not a huge social media person, you may want to post at least one snap of you and your honey this V-Day. What better way to celebrate the day than with heart puns for Instagram captions?

The typical cartoon heart has become associated with this holiday, and it's such a cute symbol to draw inspiration from for your captions. Lyrics are fun, and a lovey-dovey quote from your favorite movie will also suffice — but there's just something about a corny, sappy, or clever pun that does the trick.

Make sure to grab some red wine and a cute red accessory to go with the heart theme, and also some red lipstick to really pop. Or, go down your own path and be super chill about the whole thing. Whatever you do, you know the way to your bae's heart — and you'll capture it forever with these love-inspired puns.
