In the February 13 issue of Woman’s Day magazine, readers were asked: What do you want most this Valentine’s Day? Fifty-six percent responded: a love letter! That was more than double the second response—diamond earrings—from 20 percent of readers. I think this especially holds true for women. They would love for their men to tell them how they feel about them! Unfortunately, many men are intimidated at the thought of writing a love letter—they’d much rather blow a bunch of money on jewelry than have to write their thoughts—so I’ve come up with a simple fill-in-the-blank letter that anyone can personalize to write a simple but loving letter!
The first time I saw you . . .
What I love most about you is . . .
Thank you for . . .
You will always . . .
So, your letter might sound something like this:
The first time I saw you, I couldn’t take my eyes off of you. You were so beautiful! What I love most about you is how you curl up on the couch and watch football with me. You also make an awesome apple pie! Thank you for marrying me and giving us our beautiful daughter. You will always be the love of my life.
Love, Your husband
This simple letter is guaranteed to melt your loved one’s heart! (And if you give it to her with those diamond earrings, she’ll be even more ecstatic! But, honestly, just the letter is enough.)
Happy Valentine’s Day! And, please don’t lose this opportunity to tell your wife or husband how much they mean to you!
