Speak From The Heart

It sounds obvious, but it’s easy to put yourself under too much pressure.

When it comes to writing your Valentine’s Day card, it’s hard not to get caught up in all the wonderfully romantic things you should be writing. And that’s why we’re here to say – let yourself off the hook!

A Valentine’s Day card is an opportunity to say the things you might not always say out loud. It’s a message from you to your partner about what makes them and your relationship special. Just write from the heart and be yourself.

Practice writing out your message a few times and read it back to yourself. If it feels honest, natural, how you truly feel – then you’re golden.

Heartfelt or Funny? It’s Up To You!

A good Valentine’s Day card is a reflection of your relationship.

If you’re always cracking jokes and making each other laugh, then a message that’s a bit more funny might be the way to go.

If you want to use Valentine’s Day as a chance to show your partner just how much you love them, then you’ll probably want to say something that’s a little more charming and intimate.

But above all, you’ll know what feels right for your relationship.

Still looking for a bit more inspiration? Well, not to worry – because we’ve got a few carefully crafted messages that’ll do the trick.

Writing a Valentine’s Day Card For Your Husband or Wife

As you probably already know, Valentine’s Day as a married couple is a bit of a big deal! It’s the one day when you’ve got to let your spouse know just how much you love and appreciate them (on the good days and the bad days!). 

But there’s an upside – if you’re married, you also don’t need to worry about going overboard. You can be just as cheesy as you want, they’re stuck with you!

Here’s a few suggestions to inspire you:

  • Even when we’re old and grey and wrinkly, I’ll still fancy the pants off you.
  • Marrying me was the best decision you ever made. Happy Valentine’s Day!
  • (10 years) married, and I still can’t believe my luck. Happy Valentine’s Day!
  • Definitely putting the kids to bed early tonight!
  • Every day I am grateful that I said, ‘I do’ I love you so much.
