Writing a card that shows your love and admiration without sounding cheesy isn’t everybody’s forte. Most of the time it’s hard enough to say it out loud, let alone arrange it into poetic sentences on a piece of paper.
This Valentine’s Day, we’re here to help – no more over-the-top cheesy cards with over-affectionate, yet impersonal, messages. This year, it’s your turn to write your own!
There are three basic rules to remember when writing a Valentine’s card:
Be simple and keep it short
Men are simple creatures, and they like things to be straightforward. Keep your message concise and clear – they’ll appreciate it much more than the two-page essay you were conjuring up.
Don’t make it too feminine
Yes, you want to put your own stamp on it, but glitter, frills, hearts and sequins are appealing to you, not necessarily to him. Keep the card simple and the design not too detailed.
Say what you mean
Do you love him? Want to reveal yourself as his secret admirer? Tell him straight – Hallmark may be making a living out of long and contrived love poems, but when it comes to cards, less is more. A simple “you mean the world to me” or “I love you very much” speaks volumes.
