How to Write a Love Letter 08.02.19

It’s almost Valentine’s Day which means it’s the perfect time to pull out all the stops for your loved one, and what better way than to write a love letter. In todays society we all now communicate via text message, email or social media and it seems the art of letter writing is fading into obscurity, however this can actually make writing a love letter so much more special. A letter is tangible and is something your partner will open, read and then cherish forever. Love letters can solidify milestones in your relationship and can be read again and again to reaffirm feelings. We realise that it can be hard to express your true feelings sometimes but you don’t have to be a poet or literary genius to write a love letter, so to help you get started here are our top tips…

Make a list

Begin by making a list of all the things you love about your partner, including treasured memories and dreams of the future.

Make it Personal

This is for the person that you know better than anyone, so mention all the little idiosyncrasies and moments that they might not even realise you notice or have remembered.

Speak from the heart

Be honest, this is a chance to write the things you want to say but can never find the the right time or words. Writing will give you chance to to think of exactly how to express yourself and you won’t be in danger of saying something of the cuff and it coming out wrong.

It’s easy to be cheesy

Steer clear of clichés and rhymes but quotes and song lyrics can work well in moderation.

Short is sweet

Don’t worry about the word count, because remember it’s the thought and effort that counts.

Use good stationery

A beautiful envelope and some luxury writing paper can take your love letter to the next level (we might just know where to get some). For writing, we would always recommend a fountain pen, it brings out personality in your handwriting and will give it a classic timeless feel.

Send it

This sounds like the easiest but can sometimes be the hardest part. Just think how much you would appreciate receiving one and then take the plunge.
