Now that you have the best Valentine’s Day quotes picked out, you can get creative with your own words. Before you begin writing, consider how well you know your recipient. If you’re romantically coupled, think about what stage of the relationship you are in. This will give you an idea of how to address the card, and what tone is appropriate.
By keeping your recipient in mind, you’ll also write a more meaningful message. Are they a jokester who loves to laugh? Or would a cutesy saying be more their style? While it can be a challenge to put our feelings into words, speaking from the heart is always best. Personalized touches such as a pet name or a shared memory show the thought you put into writing and will make your Valentine feel extra special.
Once you’ve incorporated all these elements into your message, it never hurts to deliver it along with a perfectly paired duo of flowers and gourmet dipped strawberries. The time you spend making someone’s Valentine special will be long remembered, so make sure to share the holiday with everyone you love.
These Valentine’s Day quotes paired with your own words are sure to make this February 14th your best celebration yet!
