Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and lovebirds all over the world prepare for the year’s most romantic day. Some plan to buy the traditional red roses bouquet or a heart-shaped box filled with chocolates while others choose to make a DIY special gift. In any case, one thing is for sure: every present must be accompanied by awesome Valentine’s Day greetings

You know it, even though you’re afraid to admit it, that Valentine’s Day card and what it reads is more important than the gift itself. It shows your beloved ones what they mean to you and plus they last forever. It’s something you can find after years in a drawer and remember that special day on the 14th of February 2019. So, the question is how to write the best Valentine’s Day greetings. 

Check out our postcard Designshop. Here you can find the best and most romantic Valentine’s motives to send them easy and fast as a postcard.

What has to be in a Valentine’s Day Card

Not all of us have a poet hidden inside. And that’s totally fine. You can still write a 3 to 5 lines text that will make your darling’s heart melt. All you have to do is make this text sound unique. Think for example, what you like the most about this person, a special moment you share during the day or an inside joke only the two of you laugh about. Then all you have to do is write it down in your own words.

Even if it doesn’t sound as poetic as you wish it did it still is much better than writing just a cliché phrase. If you fill the card’s blank page with just an overused quote, chances are your beloved one will think that you saw this Valentine’s Day card as a chore. And that’s exactly what you must avoid!

How to choose the right type of Valentine’s Day card?

Ever since Valentine’s Day is a celebrating day for couples, romantic cards of all kinds, shapes and colors fill the shops already since early February. But especially nowadays you have a bundle of possibilities which kind of Valentine’s Day greetings you want to send. You can choose a pop-up Valentine’s Day card, add your favorite photo to the front page or send a personalized card.

Hiya, I’m Maud. I’m an English girl who's moved to Berlin - because who wouldn’t fall in love with a country which has words like ‘Kummerspeck’ hidden around every corner... I love traveling and finding out the quirks of each country - and what better way to remember them than on a postcard?
