People have been writing love letters for centuries. The time and effort needed to express your feelings and emotions poetically through words is almost more romantic than the words themselves. But in a new world of texting, have we lost the art of writing love letters? Limited by character count and time, we are in a time where “I <3 u” and “ILY” need to convey the same message of love. It seems as though something as real and complex as passion has been reduced to a few simple letters.
If you are looking for a simple and thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift, put down your phone and close your laptop. Take out a pen, and write a love letter. Start by jotting down some adjectives that come to mind when you think about your loved one. You can talk about your feelings, the goals you share in life and the great things that contributed to where you are today. Form these ideas into sentences. You may need to re-write it a few times until you get the flow just right. Don’t try to be perfect or anyone other than yourself. Having if sound like you and reflect who you are as a person is part of the charm.
Write it on nice paper, sign your name with love, and seal it in an envelope. Clip it in our Heart Shaped Clip and hang it on the fridge for your loved one to find on Valentine’s Day. You will have given one of the most thoughtful and romantic gifts of all time.
Also, consider that Valentine’s Day doesn’t stop with your loved one. If you’re in business marketing, you can help your customers and employees enjoy the Valentine’s Day spirit with pens and other giveaway items in red or pink. Everyone loves a gift from the heart!
