Written with love

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, why not ditch the chocolates and flowers and use the written word to express how you feel and make this the year to remember the true meaning of Valentine’s Day. 

For some of us, Valentine’s Day might be the perfect excuse to shower our loved one with gifts, but how about taking some time to write down how you feel to show the person you love how much you really care for them.

It’s safe to say that the way we express our affection has certainly changed over the generations and with all the latest technology at hand, our passion for love letters and poems seem to have got lost in the technological post. But going old-school with the way we show our affection can mean so much more to someone than a life-sized teddy bear. You shouldn’t feel pressured to buy an amazing gift for your partner just to show them that you care when the thought that is behind your token of love will be just as much, if not more appreciated than anything else.

One of our favourite ways of expressing emotions with words, is a poem. Written or spoken, we love that it allows you to present your feelings in such a unique way. What’s great is you can be as creative as you like; so much so that it doesn’t even have to make sense to others, something for only you and your loved one to share and understand.

There are many fantastic and beautiful poems out there already that you could send to your loved one this Valentine’s day. But you can also use them for inspiration for creating your own peoms too.

If you’re finding it hard to know where to start and are stuck for ideas, here’s some lines from our favourite wordsmith to help (made in the UK, of course):


William Shakespeare (Romeo & Juliet)

But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun

See how she leans her cheek upon her hand!
O that I were a glove upon that hand,
That I might touch that cheek!


Whether you’re planning on sending a mystery love note or just simply want to show your partner how much they mean, melt that special someone’s heart with a beautiful poem from you. So, sit back and grab your journal…it’s time to think Cupid.
