Ideas of what to say in a Valentine's Day Card

Every year when Valentine's Day comes around, we are eager to get at least a Valentine's Day Card for the ones we love. Often, the card says it all, and anything we could add would not really add that much (or so we think!). Sometimes, we just need a little "something more" that we can add to the inside, above where we sign our name. Below are some ideas that you can use or adapt with your own words, to get that special message across to your Valentine. Sometimes, just adding a "Happy Valentine's Day", or "I love you" plus the saying is more than sufficient and gets the message across beautifully.

Whether you are buying a card or making your own, I hope you find something here you can use, or that spurs you on to think of your own special message to say. Happy Valentine's Day!

Messages to Put into or Add to a Valentine's Day Card

* I wish you all the love your heart can hold this Valentine's Day.

* If there is anything that makes you happy

If there is anything that makes you feel loved

If there is anything that your sweet heart wants

That is what my heart wants for you this Valentine's Day

* I hope your Valentine's Day is as wonderful as you make me feel!

* With you in my life, I am the luckiest man (or woman) alive. Happy Valentine's Day.

* This message is coming your way to bring you lots of love this Valentine's Day.

* This Valentine's Day is the perfect time to let you know how very much you mean to me. Happy Valentine's Day to the one who means more to me than any other.

* Wishing you the all the best that life has to offer this Valentine's Day.

* Life has more meaning when shared with someone we love. The best part of my life is that I get to share it with you. Happy Valentine's Day.

* Happy Valentine's Day to the one who completes me.

* I am the luckiest person alive to have you as my Valentine. Happy Valentine's Day.

* Sending the warmest wishes possible to the most wonderful person I know. Happy Valentine's Day.

I like the idea of personalizing a valentines day card. I am usualy pretty good at picking cards that are a very good fit for the person I am giving the card to. I do like the idea of personalizing one though. With the right software, you could make your cards look very professionally done. Thanks for the tips and examples of phrases that can be modified. I can tell you put a lot of thought into this hub. Voted up, useful, and beautiful.

Lovely thoughts for Valentine's Day cards. I like making my own cards with stamps, ribbons, and other decorations, so I do need something clever and heart-felt to write inside. Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello Ayliss, I totally agree with you about how great it would be to receive a Valentines Card with impressive words or letters. It doesn't even cost a lot and makes a great impact! Thanks for your comment.

Hello Brandon, thank you very much for your kind words. There is a lot that can spark our imaginations and ideas. I like how you mentioned using software to get a note or card to look professional. I appreciate you coming by and leaving a comment, thank you.

DIY, thank you very much! So glad you liked those, and I am glad you stopped by and left a comment. It is much appreciated.

Hi SaferDates, thank you for your comment and visit here. I am glad you wanted to share also, thanks!

Hello Steph, thank you very much. I am the same way, in that I also like to make cards with all the same things you mention. My only problem is that I need to do that more. Over time, its easy to develop a little collection, but then almost get too busy to use them all. I love a homemade card, truly. Its so fun to make and give them as well.

I appreciate your comment and visit. Now I feel like making some Valentine's Day cards! Happy Valentine's Day.

You can definitely see your ertexpise in the paintings you write. The arena hopes for more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. All the time follow your heart. Man is the measure of all things. by Protagoras.
