23 Special & Thoughtful Valentine’s Day Card Messages For Your Partner

Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is here to stay. It is a day for you to show your other half just how much they mean to you, with a beautiful Valentine’s Day card, special gift or thoughtful gesture (though remember there are 364 other days throughout the year to be kind and thoughtful too!). For some, prepping for a special Valentine’s Day feels easy and effortless - romantic gestures and talking about feelings comes naturally. But for others (not looking at anyone in particular… ahem), it is the source of much anxiety. And a big part of this can come from not knowing what to write in a Valentine’s Day card. So to help, I have written 23 special and thoughtful Valentine’s Day card messages for your partner, to take some of the pre-Valentine’s Day stress away. They will love receiving a special and thoughtful Valentine’s Day card written by you, and they don’t need to know the inspiration for the message came from the internet!

Am I right in thinking the mere thought of sharing your feelings on paper has your palms sweating and a lump forming in your throat? This Valentine’s Day card stuff makes you feel awkward. You know you love your partner, you’ve told them multiple times! You’re wondering why you have to jump through all these hoops just because it’s Valentine’s Day?! Honestly, it will mean the world to them that you have written a romantic and thoughtful message in a Valentine’s Day card, especially if they always get a sweet Valentine’s Day card for you too. They know this stuff doesn’t come easily to you, so will massively appreciate how much this has taken you out of your comfort zone. But you don’t have to do it alone! Knowing what to write in a Valentine’s Day card can be daunting, and staring at the blank inside of the card can be a little overwhelming. So have a read of the 23 special, thoughtful Valentine’s Day card messages for your partner that I have written in this blog. You can copy and paste them word-for-word, or use them as inspiration when you write your own Valentine’s Day card. I hope this goes some way to making your Valentine’s Day preparations stress-free, and maybe even enjoyable…!

So there you have it, 23 special and thoughtful Valentine’s Day card messages for your partner. I really hope you have found this useful and could take some inspiration from it, or copy a message or two from the list, for your own Valentine’s Day card. Sharing your feelings is not always easy, but will mean so much to your partner, and help bring you even closer together. Telling your partner how you feel doesn’t have to be overly dramatic or cheesy like you see in the movies. As you can see from the Valentine’s Day card messages written in this blog, a lot of love comes from the little everyday things your partner does that makes you laugh or brightens your day, and they are what you should be focused on when writing your Valentine’s Day card. Don’t feel the pressure to spill your heart out and write the world’s most romantic message. Be authentic, speak from the heart, and don’t put too much pressure on yourself! A Valentine’s Day spent focusing on what you love about your partner, spending precious time together, and feeling thankful to have such a wonderful person in your life, is a Valentine’s Day well spent. I hope you have a wonderful time together!
