WHAT TO WRITE IN A VALENTINE’S DAY CARD

Back in the day, when you had to come up with a valentine message for everyone in your class, it was enough to just sign your name thirty times onto a handmade (and extremely glittery) card. But now that you’re older and your valentine list is shorter, you can afford to take your time adding a meaningful personal message.

Already picked out a perfect Valentine’s Day card from our online store and in need of some writing inspiration? You’re reading the right blog! And remember: no matter what you say, use words that sound like you. If you are sincere and you are yourself, your card will be as meaningful as you want it to be.

Sign Your Valentine

For Your Other Half

  • “Happy Valentine’s Day, Gorgeous.”
  • “Today is all ours. I can’t wait to celebrate with you.”
  • “Especially today, I hope you feel how much I love you and how grateful I am to have you in my life.”
  • “You take my breath away. Always.”
  • “You have no idea how amazing you are.”
  • “I couldn’t ask for a more wonderful [partner] than you.”
  • “My heart is all yours.”
  • “Thanks for being there through the good times and the tough times.”
  • “I love all the adventures we have together.”
  • “I’m so excited to be sharing our first Valentine’s Day together. I hope it’s the first of many…”
  • “Wish you were here for me to spoil today.”
  • “Has it really been [10] years? I’d do it all over in a heartbeat.”

Writing tips: Using the recipient’s nickname (or private pet name!) can instantly make a simple wish feel warmer and more personal.

For Galentines & Palentines

  • “Hope your day brings just what you want it to.”
  • “Thanks for being the loyal and caring [friend] you are. Love you!”
  • “Here’s to a Valentine’s Day filled with good wine, good food and especially good friends like you.”
  • “Happy Valentine’s to one of my favourite people. Ever.”
  • “Valentine’s Day and every day, I’m grateful for you.”
  • “I’ll raise an awesome Valentine’s cocktail to you.”
  • “I hope you feel loved and appreciated on Valentine’s Day. Because you are.”

Writing tip: If your friend likes edgy or teasing humour, you already know it. If not, it’s almost always safe to make light of Valentine’s Day, yourself or love in general.
