What to Write in a Valentines Day Card

Valentines Wishes & Inspiration

22 Jan 2021

Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou...wait...oh crap, what do you say next?

Writer’s block isn’t just something for Elizabethan playwrights in big ruffs and fancy quills sat by flickering candlelight (trust us, you should have seen how long it took us to write that opening sentence). So, you’ve spent ages finding the perfect Valentine’s Day card for your special someone, and you have all these feelings you want to express...but...when confronted with that blank page...what on earth do you write?

Do you crack a joke? Do you profess in poetry your undying and everlasting love? How many kisses say ‘oh hey I really like you and maybe if you aren’t doing anything else this week do you think you might like to be my girlfriend? But like no pressure, I’m totally chill...’?

It can be a minefield sometimes.

Well, have no fear, help is at hand! We’ve put together a list of romantical message ideas for your main squeeze, making sure you can say how much they mean to you this Valentine’s Day.

You can also head to our Moonpig app where you can find 100s of suggested messages for Valentine’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries and more!

First Valentine’s Together

Love U Long Time

Even if this is your 10th or 50th Valentine’s Day together, there are still hundreds of ways to keep it fresh and surprise them.

  1. I didn’t think it was possible, but I love you more now than the day we got married. Here’s to the rest of my life loving you more than the day before.

  2. We might be old now, but you’re still hot. Can’t wait to rip off your granny pants later.

  5. Happy Valentine’s Day! I can’t wait to keep annoying you for the rest of our lives.

Long Distance Love

When you can’t be together in person, we’ve got the perfect ways to give them the loveliest hugs with words instead.

  1. Distance makes the heart grow fonder and I think at this point it’s physically impossible for me to love you more than I do. Happy Valentine’s day, from here to you.

  2. I wish you were here, next to me. Naked of course.

  3. You may not be here with me but you are always in my heart. I love you!

  4. Even though we’re far apart, you’re still the most important person in my life. I love you my long distance Valentine!

  5. I wish I was kissing you instead of missing you!

  6. My dearest Agnes. Time stretches on when I am not with you, my beloved. Every second feels an eternity. This Valentine’s Day I yearn for you even more. As I write this letter, I am counting down the moments until we are no longer parted, and I feel your warm embrace once more. Yours, as always, your love.

From the Pet

Just because they can’t technically read or write (or hold a pen) doesn’t mean your beloved fur babies can’t express themselves this Valentine’s Day!

  1. I love you more than anyone in the whole entire world!

  2. Thank you for always picking up my poo. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  3. I’m sorry for all the times I kissed you after licking my bum. I thought it was romantic. Happy Dogentine’s Day!

  5. I BARKING LOVE YOU!

  2. To my own personal unicorn! Happy Valentine’s Day to the best bestie in the universe.
