What should I write in a Valentine’s Day Card?

Whether you are sending Valentine’s greetings anonymously to someone in your class; to a love from afar, or to your significant other, it can be hard to find the right message to share your feelings of love with them.

Here at Snapfish, we have compiled a list of Valentine’s Day sentiment and love-themed words and phrases to make it easier to say “I love you”.

1. From a secret admirer

“A Secret Valentine has come your way. I’m pretty sure you have no clue who sent this today! Happy Valentine’s Day!”
“Can you figure it out? I want to be your Valentine. Who am I?”
“Happy Valentine’s Day. I think you are cute.”
“Sending you a big Valentine hug!”
“Love you to the moon and back, from ?!”
“U R 2 Cute! Be my Valentine?”
“It’s Valentine’s Day and I wish I was kissing you instead of missing you!”
“Cuddling you would be perfect right now. Will you be my Valentine?”
