What to Write in a Valentine's Day Card

It's that time of the year again when we have the opportunity and excuse to celebrate the source of unconditional love that is ever-present in our lives but perhaps goes quietly unnoticed in our busy day-to-day lives. This time of year can be poignant for some as well as difficult for others. We at Bravovoucher encourage you to feel the source and love within and believe that on this day each of us is special, loved and important. It is a great time for loving yourself as well as loving others and gift-giving is simply a way of demonstrating a strong feeling of emotion that you feel for someone who is important in your life and that you believe needs a reminder of how much you appreciate them. You can celebrate the love you feel for yourself, the love you feel for your family, the love you have for your friends or someone new who has become an important part of your life.

Saint Valentine's day was first recognised as a Christian feast by Pope Gelasius I in the year 496, and back in the 1300s Valentine's popularity grew, as courtly love spread like wildfire across the most sophisticated courts of continental Europe. It's safe to say, though, that it wasn't until the 1800s, when a retro fashion for medievalism became all the rage, that Valentine's reputation came to its own. Valentine's cards and letters became so popular in the times of Charles Dickens that he called it Cupid's Manufactory, and the production of small gifts for the occasion soon spread from Valentine's cards to flowers, chocolates and the rest of the usual stuff. With such a rich history of letter writing, ‘Happy Valentine's Day’ just doesn’t cut it anymore. That’s why we’ve created a helpful list of tips on what to write in a Valentine’s Day card. 

 

What to write in a Valentine’s card for him

So the big day is fast approaching (Valentine’s Day that is, not your wedding) and you’re completely stumped on what to write in a Valentine’s Day card for your boyfriend, husband, dad or whoever! Have no fear, we’ve got plenty of ideas.

What about the classic ‘Happy Valentine’s Day to the best husband ever’ (replace husband with dad/boyfriend etc). Pair it with a ‘Best Husband Ever mug’ at a fantastic price amongst the amazing Amazon offers to really seal the deal. Then every time they have a cup of tea, they’ll be reminded of how lovely you are!

If they’re more romantic, something a little deeper might be called for like ‘I wish I could give you the world for Valentine’s Day. Will you settle for my heart?’. Maybe sneak in an ASOS voucher cut out in the shape of a heart so when they open it, your ‘heart’ flutters out!

For all the tech-heads out there, whose screen time has increased tenfold over lockdown, how about a cheeky ‘To my darling, I love you nearly as much as you love your Playstation’! Then why not use one of our Currys PC World discount codes and get them the latest phone, tablet, or games console! 

 

What to write in a Valentine’s card for her

Now we’ve got what to write in a Valentine’s Day Card for your husband sorted, let’s move onto the perhaps more tricky part: what to write in your wife’s Valentine’s Day card (or girlfriend).

If you’re in a long term relationship, why not allude to your future together with ‘I can’t wait to grow old with you and for all the adventures to come’. Flowers and chocolates are a winning combination for a reason so join this with a beautiful bouquet without the huge price tag thanks to a Prestige Flowers discount code.

Cheesier still might be this next idea: ‘I may not be your first date, first kiss or first love, but I just want to be your last everything.’ Show them you mean it by getting a flower subscription for 3 to 12 months! They don’t even have to know the fantastic price you got it at when you saved with a Bloom & Wild voucher code.

Some other of our favourites include ‘Yours forever and always’, ‘My Forever Valentine’ or you could even go with famous quotes like ‘You're the first thing I think of when I wake up and the last thing when I go to sleep. You're my sun and moon and stars, my past and present’.

 

How to write a funny Valentine’s card

For those of you that don’t like all the soppy stuff and want to go down the humour route, we’ve got some great options for what to write in a Valentine’s Card when you want to see their face light up with a smile.

Any food-based puns are bound to go down a treat. ‘You stole a pizza my heart’ is a great one or ‘Let’s avocuddle’ for the avo toast lovers. What would be more appropriate as an accompanying gift than a Just Eat voucher

Or why not play on a classic like: ‘Roses are red violets are blue, not sure if you know but I fancy the pants off you’. Or keep it topical with ‘You’re so hot Greta Thunberg has declared an emergency’. If they’re into this cheeky wordplay, you should definitely check out our Lovehoney offers to spice the day up a bit- it’s win-win for both parties in a couple.

 

What to write in a Valentine’s card for classmates

Last but not least, with mass class card giving becoming more and more popular amongst the kids, we’ve got suggestions on how to write a Valentine’s message for classmates. After all, it doesn’t always have to be romantic! 

If it’s for your gals pals and you’re out to celebrate Galentine’s, how about ‘When should we start rosé-ing?’ and get the vino and cheeseboard ready for a night of giggles. Other potential Valentine’s Day messages could be ‘Mates before dates’ or ’Sistas before mistas’. Avoid all that sympathy drama from relatives who think you'll stay single and hit the town with your pals.

If it’s for that cute person you’ve had your eye on since the very beginning of term, now’s your chance to act on those feelings. How about a simple ‘Will you be my Valentine?’ and find out how they feel. Perhaps a bit of humour to ease the tension might help with something like ‘Ouch. I was just hit with an arrow. Did Cupid get you too?’. Whatever their response (we’re hoping yes), at least you’ll get a reply and who knows, you might get your a Valentine’s Day date!
