How to write a love letter
Love letters aren’t a thing of the past. Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to put your feelings down in a good old fashioned, hand-written love letter. So dig out your favourite pen and practice your best handwriting. Our top tips are all you need to write a love letter this Valentine’s:
- Date your letter
Your letter will be a treasured keepsake by the recipient, so writing the day, month and year at the top will always place it in time, no matter how long it’s kept or how many times it’s read.
- Start by saying why you’re writing
Begin your letter by telling your loved one why you’re writing to them. This makes a great introduction for the rest of your words. You don’t have to have a Shakespearean way with words, even ‘I’m writing to tell you how much I love you” is the perfect beginning for a letter of love.
- Make it personal
The small details are what make a love letter great because they really convey personal meaning and shared experiences. You could include when or how you fell in love and some of their best qualities. Make sure that everything you say is real, a love letter must be based on true love.
- Use quotes
If you’re struggling to really convey how you feel, it’s not cheating to use quotes. Sometimes someone else has just said exactly what you want, perfectly. Don’t try and pass this off as your own work however, as that could really backfire. Our ‘Famous Love Letters ‘blog post has some of the best love quotes. Click here to get some inspiration.
- Don’t worry about the length
Whether its three pages or three lines, you can make your letter as long as you like. The meaning will be there no matter how long it is, so don’t try and pen an essay if you’re a person of few words.
