What you write in your Valentine's card will depend on the recipient. Regardless of whether you're writing a Valentine's message to a romantic interest, a friend or a family member -- it's best to keep these few reminders in mind:
- Keep it short.
- Share the love.
- Make it personal.
Writing a Valentine's Day card is not your opportunity to write a novel. These greeting cards don't have a whole lot of space so keep that in mind when composing your message. Luckily, if you're using Postable to send your Valentine's Day cards you'll have the option to draft as many messages as you like editing as you go while still using one of our smart handwritten fonts to maintain the personalization element. If you're writing your card by hand -- draft your message on a sheet of paper before inserting it into your card to avoid messing up your one card.
This may seem obvious, but don't forget to actually write about some version of 'love'. If the word 'love' is a little too strong -- say, for a budding romance -- then simply mention the things that draw you to that person. A sincere compliment will go a long way to helping that person feel the love.
And on that note, by writing something about the person you're sending the card to you're making the message personal. Write a sincere compliment (key word here: sincere). The more unique the message is to the recipient, the more heartfelt the message will be and the more love the person will feel. And at that's the goal isn't it!?
