Tips for Writing Personalized Notes
If you only have a couple of cards to write, or simply want to add a little extra love to your V-day cards, try hand-writing your messages. Keep these tips in mind:
- Mind your relationship. You wouldn’t write the same message to your grandpa as you would write to your boyfriend or husband.
- Don’t be afraid to get a little punny when sending cards to friends, new relationships, coworkers or other non-significant others. Have fun with your message!
- Consider color. Colors carry certain meanings; for example, red and pink are perfect for your significant other, but more casual shades like yellow, orange, or purple are ideal for others. Keeping these meanings in mind can help you create the perfect card tailored to your recipient.
- Hand write your note. This may go without saying, but a customized note should always be hand-written – it’s more personal and sentimental than printing a message off your computer.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
