How to Write a Valentine’s Letter

A Valentine’s Day letter 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.
