It’s fun to celebrate your significant other, boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife with a special treat to show them that you love them! It doesn’t need to be for a special occasion, but it’s a good idea to make them feel special on anniversaries, holidays, birthdays, and any time they could be celebrated. You could get them flowers or their favorite treat and pair it with a nice greeting card.
What do you say to your loved one in the card? How do you put into words how special they are to you? I am sharing my favorite ways to say I love you through written words. I’m sure one of these will fit your style and go nicely into a greeting card!
Sweet Romantic "I Love You" Ideas
Sweet romantic messages are always a hit! Say you love them in a short but sweet note like some of the examples below:
“I think about you all day, every day.”
“Thank you for making my life brighter!”
“Our lives may be hectic but I’m never too busy to think about you.”
“I still get excited when I see your name pop up on my phone.”
These sayings would go perfectly in a card like: I Met You. I Liked You. I Love You. I’m Keeping You.
