23 Thoughtful Valentine’s Day Card Messages For Your Partner

Valentine's Day is an opportunity 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 show a little love as well!).

For some, writing a special Valentine’s Day card feels effortless - talking about feelings comes naturally. But for others, the thought of sharing their feelings on paper has their palms sweating and a lump forming in their throat...am I right?! So to help, I have written 23 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. You can copy and paste the messages 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…!

What do I write in a Valentine's Day card?

1. I love all of our adventures, and the fun we have together. (You could make this more personal by talking about a memory of an adventure you’ve had together during the past year.)

2. Thank you for reminding me to laugh, be silly, and have fun, even on bad days. Happy Valentine’s Day!

3. Life wouldn’t be the same without you, I love you so much.

4. You are the kindest person, and I am so lucky I get to spend each day with you. (You could make this more personal by changing the adjective to something more appropriate e.g. loveliest, funniest, smartest, most caring, most generous…)

5. We have so much fun together and you make me so happy. Happy Valentine’s Day!

6. Thanks for always putting the bins out and feeding the cat, you’re the best! (You can personalise this with whichever jobs your partner does!)

7. Life is so much better with you in it. Happy Valentine’s Day!

So there you have it, 23 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 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 focus on when writing your Valentine’s Day card. Be authentic, speak from the heart, and you'll nail it. 

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!
