What to Write in Valentine’s Cards

It’s no surprise that 14th February is the most popular day of the year for sending Valentine’s cards. Thus, whether you’re single or in a relationship, everyone feels appreciated on Valentine’s Day. Although many people have their own ideas about what makes a great Valentine’s card, there are some universal truths. Whatever your reasons for sending Valentine’s cards from – whether it be to show someone how much you care about them or because you just really want to have this one moment on V-Day – follow these suggestions to make sure your efforts come across as sincerely as possible.

Be yourself on V-Day

When it comes to Valentine’s cards and what you say in them, the best thing to do is just be yourself. Sure, you might want to send a certain message, but if you try to force it, it will come across as forced. Instead, just remember that your message is not the most important thing. What is most important is that the person you are sending it to knows how much they mean to you. So, don’t try to be someone else when you write a card. Be you. Be yourself, be genuine, and you will blow the other person away with how much they already mean to you.

Let people know why you’re sending them a card

If you are sending a card for a particular occasion, be sure to let your recipient know why you are sending them a particular card. Whether you’ve selected a special design or picked a specific message, your recipient will want to know what it is that you are trying to convey. Be the first to do so or they might think something else is happening or that you expected a certain type of card back. You don’t want that to happen, do you? You want your recipient to know why they are receiving certain cards and what they mean.

Don’t be afraid to get a little funny

Humor is a great tool to make a Valentine’s card more memorable. If you are worried about sounding too ‘wacky’ or ‘random’ for the recipient, don’t be. There is nothing wrong with making a card a little funnier than it needs to be. It’s okay to sprinkle some jokes in with the more serious messages. As long as you don’t make a big deal out of it, your recipient will find the humor in a card that shows them how much you care.

Examples of what to write in Valentine’s cards

● Acquaintance: “You always have great advice for me on everything and make me feel so special”. 

● Friend: “You are one of the most important people in my life, and I couldn’t imagine life without you”. 

● Spouse: “You are the best partner a girl could ask for—patient, caring, and loving”. 

● Child: “You make me proud every day with your beautiful smile and smarts”. 

● Someone Special: “Being with you is the best feeling ever, and I don’t want it to end!”.

Wrapping Up

Valentine’s cards are a tradition that holds deep meaning for many couples. It’s an opportunity to show your love and appreciation for your partner by leaving them a hand-written note, making it clear that you care about them and appreciate their presence in your life. There are many things you can put on your Valentine’s cards, but here are some of the most popular:

● Write a heartfelt message to express how much you care about and appreciate your partner.

● Write an encouraging word or quote to keep them going during the toughest times in their life.

● Make sure to include a special picture of you two together, whether it be from a romantic evening out, or just one of you relaxing at home.

And this is how you make perfect Valentine’s cards. Happy Valentine’s Day!

The UK population is undergoing a massive shift, in terms of age groups. There are over 11 million people aged 65 and in ten years’ time this will have increased to 13 million people, 22% of the population. This means that more than ever, we’re going to have a generation which requires care. Not everyone can afford to hire outside help and some people are uncomfortable with the idea of a stranger in their home, so a lot of care duties are falling to family members, rather than professionals. With this in mind, we’ve put together a list of things that you need to think about when caring for an elderly relative:
