Posted by Chantal Gagnon on

Valentine's Day is a special occasion that is all about expressing your love and affection for your significant other. One of the most traditional ways to do this is by writing a heartfelt message in a Valentine's Day card. But what should you write in the card? Here are some tips on what to write in Valentine's Day cards to make them extra special:


  1. Start with a personal greeting.
    Begin your message with a personal greeting, such as "My dear [partner's name]," or "To my one and only." This will make the card feel more intimate and personal.
  2. Express your feelings.
    The main purpose of a Valentine's Day card is to express your feelings for your partner. Use words that are sincere and heartfelt to tell them how much you love and appreciate them. Avoid cliches and be specific about what you love about your partner.
  3. Share a special memory or inside joke.
    Remind your partner of a special memory or inside joke that you share, it will make the card more personal and special to them.

  4. Express your hopes for the future.
    Use the card to express your hopes and dreams for the future with your partner. Tell them what you look forward to doing together in the future, or what you hope to achieve as a couple.
  5. End on a loving note.
    Conclude your message with a loving statement or quote. "All my love," "Forever and always," or "Yours always" are just a few examples of ending lines that can add a special touch to your card.

  6. Sign it with love.
    Sign the card with your name and add a heartfelt message like "Love always" or "With all my heart".
For those who are still stuck and in need a bit of inspiration, here are a few examples you can steal (we won't tell).

  • My dear [partner's name], you are the love of my life and I feel incredibly lucky to have you by my side. Happy Valentine's Day, my love.
  • To my one and only, my heart belongs to you. You make my life complete and I cannot imagine a day without you. Happy Valentine's Day, my dear.
  • Happy Valentine's Day to the person who makes my days brighter and my nights more peaceful. I love you now and forever.
  • My love, on this special day, I want to remind you of all the wonderful memories we've shared together and all the amazing adventures that are yet to come. Happy Valentine's Day.
  • To the one who holds my heart, I love you more than words can say. You make every day feel like Valentine's Day. Happy Valentine's Day, my love.
  • Happy Valentine's Day to the person who makes my world a better place. You are my best friend, my lover, my everything. I love you.
  • My sweetheart, on this Valentine's Day, I want to tell you how much you mean to me. You make my life so much richer, and I'm forever grateful to have you by my side. Happy Valentine's Day.
  • Roses are red, violets are blue, let's make this Valentine's Day one for the books, and eat [a favourite restaurant] takeout for two.
  • Roses are red, violets are blue, I'm really bad at poetry, but I really love you.

Remember, it's not the length of the message that matters, but the sincerity of the words. A simple and heartfelt message can be just as meaningful as a long one. And don't forget to include a personal touch, like a picture or a small gift, to make the card extra special. With these tips in mind, you'll be able to write a Valentine's Day card that will make your partner feel loved and appreciated.
