  • Find the right spot.
    You’ll want to find a nice quiet space in which to write, away from all phones, computers, and other distractions. If you’re comfortable and unhurried, your letter-writing process will be much more relaxing, enjoyable, and productive.
  • Gather your thoughts first.
    Before you put pen to paper, take your time and go over your feelings and emotions for him. Remember key moments and events you’ve shared. What makes him stand out from the others? Focus on his best qualities and some of the kind (and maybe even unexpected) things he’s done for you, like helping with the dishes or fixing a flat tire.
  • Use your own voice.
    Don’t try to imitate anyone or use words you wouldn’t ordinarily use in real life. Be conversational and write exactly what comes to mind, just the way you would say it out loud. Your own voice is the sweetest voice of all—and he knows it.
  • Choose special stationery.
    A personally handwritten letter is the best of all. No emails or texts will do this time, sorry. As luck would have it, our designers have created some FREE stationery templates you can print right from home.
  • Don’t worry about length.
    Your letter doesn’t have to be long to be better. Short and sweet is just as good as any novella.
  • Write from the heart.
    Now that you’re set, let your heart guide you. Start with the reason you decided to write him a love letter. (Use your best penmanship!) Then you can talk about:
    – How you felt the day you met him
    – How your life has changed since you met him
    – Why you fell in love with him
    – How you feel when you’re together
    – How you feel when you’re apart
    – What makes him so special
  • Sign, seal, deliver.
    Conclude with a sentimental closing, such as “With all my love,” “Forever yours,” or “Your one and only.” You can even put on your brightest red lipstick and plant a kiss next to your signature. Or lightly spritz the letter with your favorite perfume. Tuck into an envelope. Consider adding your photo, a few heart-shaped confetti, or some dried rose petals before sealing. Add a candle wax seal using a heart-shaped stamp for a nice finishing touch. Hand-address and mail in plenty of time for him to receive—and enjoy—by Valentine’s Day.

How to Write a Love Letter

Nowadays, with email, texts and IM chats, it’s easier than ever to stay connected. But how often do those “connections” go above and beyond a quick message or even no words at all (OMG)?

And on the rare occasion that someone does craft an eloquent email or a touching text—how can you possibly tuck it away in your shoebox of keepsakes?

Isn’t it about time to bring back the love letter? You don’t need to be a poet to pull at someone’s heartstrings. And since seeing something personal among a stack of bills automatically triggers happiness, you’ll have them at hello.  But we can help you do better than that.

Simply think SWEET:  Sit. Write. Emotion. Examples. Time.

 Sit.

Find a quiet place to give full attention to your letter—and your relationship. Think about why you fell in love, what makes this person special, and what you want to say. Then immerse yourself fully in the project. Whether you end up with three paragraphs or three pages, your letter deserves your undivided attention.

 Write.

There’s nothing like the age-old act of putting ink to paper that better symbolizes “pouring your heart out.” You’re single-handedly creating a cherished keepsake, possibly a piece of family history. Present your words in a classic way—on personalized stationery, or inside a blank card, for shorter sentiments.

 Emotion.

Express your feelings! But don’t overdo it. Especially at the beginning of the relationship, keep things subtle and simple. Let your loved one read between the lines. As your feelings intensify, your language will, too. But even then, don’t get too dramatic. Write the way you talk. Your love letter should sound like you, not Shakespeare. Keep it real.

 Examples.

You both know the details of your love story, but you can give mutual experiences a fresh perspective by reminiscing from your point-of-view. Does a special moment stand out in your mind? Why? Be descriptive. A good love letter speaks plainly and illustrates perfectly. “When I saw you that day, I knew. With your gentle kindness, your quiet confidence, your passion for life — I knew I could give you my heart.”

Time.

When your letter is finished, put it aside for a day or two and then come back to it. You may be surprised at how different it sounds, and it might need some tweaking. Once you feel like it’s your own personal version of a romantic card, then you know it’s ready to send!
