Writing a Valentine’s Day Card
Writing for Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day—which is celebrated on February 14— is a day when you can express your love or admiration to someone special in your life.
The thought of writing a Valentine’s Day letter will do one of two things: It will make your heart flutter in giddy anticipation, or it will make you sweat through your shirt in anguish.
Either way, we decided to share some tips on what to write in a Valentine’s Day card (plus a few ready-to-use messages for new relationships).
What To Write in a Valentine’s Card
A Valentine’s Day card is the perfect token of appreciation to give to your partner whether you’ve been together a few weeks, months, or years. However, writing a love letter is slightly different from writing other types of informal letters.
Here’s how to write the perfect Valentine’s Day letter:
1) Include Special Moments
Write a heartfelt message by adding an inside joke or your favorite moments together. A handwritten letter shows your effort. If you want to make it even more personal, seal it with a kiss (with your signature lipstick color) or add a spritz of cologne or perfume.
2) Express Yourself
Tell your significant other what you like the most about them. However, it’s important to consider the reader. Some people like expressive romanticism, while others don’t. If you’re not sure, try to find a happy balance.
3) Write About the Future
Write about the future and what your hopes are for the relationship. For example, maybe you’ll be meeting each other’s family soon or going on a trip. Write about how you’re excited for this to happen.
4) Be Original
Don’t just copy a Shakespeare poem and call it a day. You don’t have to write a love letter deserving of a Pulitzer Prize, but make sure you’re original and sincere, and write from the heart.
Valentine’s Day Card Closings
If you’re writing a Valentine’s Day card for a long-term or close relationship, you can use any of the following closings:

What To Write in a Valentine’s Day Card for a New Relationship
We should note that writing a Valentine’s Day letter using the tips above is easier when you’re in a more established relationship, simply because there are more memories to write about.
Writing a Valentine’s Day card is a little trickier when you’re in a new relationship. You don’t want to write too much, but you don’t want to write too little either—both options could send the wrong signal.
That being said, below you’ll find five ready-to-use Valentine’s Day messages. Consider it a token of love from us! And don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone you were here.
