Valentine's Day Card Writing Tips

You have done everything to prepare for the perfect Valentine's Day.  You have dinner reservations, you have flowers, a nice gift, but you are still not quite sure what words to use to convey your message.  We have all been there, whether we're just not good with words, or we've exhausted every phrase to tell someone how we feel.  you:MoreThoughtful has your back with lots of idea starters for writing in your Valentine's card. 

Although using the first name is standard protocol for writing a Valentine's Day card, use your loved one's nickname (or another term of endearment) to instantly make a simple Valentine's wish feel warmer and more personal.

It isn't unheard of to give more than one card on Valentine's Day.  Something as simple as a sticky note on the bathroom mirror or a piece of paper from a notebook with a simple "I Love You" or "Be My Valentine" can be sweet, simple, and impactful.

Whatever you say, or advice you use to write in your loved one's Valentine's Day card, use words that come from the heart and sound like you.  Your card will be as meaningful as you want it to be and your sincerity will be touching.
