Forget that Valentine-Write a Love Letter! Here's
Has anyone every given you a love letter? If
so, did you keep it? I bet you did. If it was
well written, I bet you framed it. Have you ever
given someone a love letter that they framed?
No? Want to? It's the very best valentine you
can give anyone and easier to do than you think.
Just follow these simple directions:
1. Quickly write a list of everything that endears
this person to you. He or she could be a parent,
child, cousin, friend, lover, spouse, teacher--or
your boss (in extremely rare cases.)
2. Be specific. You will be writing so fast you
may include traits you don't like. That's okay.
You can cross those out later.
3. Include physical characteristics that you
know your recipient likes. For example, if he
has a full head of white hair (or purple) that
he cares about enough to have a special barber,
4. Add specific humorous moments in your life
together, not embarrassing ones, but those that
you know he or she definitely enjoyed.
5. When you have a really long list, write your
first draft. Begin with a general phrase such
as, "I love you," or "Je taime, je t'adore, mon
6. Arrange your paragraphs from your list and
end with a general phrase such as "I love you."
It's the details you include that make it a zinger!
7. Type, spell-check and wait a couple of days.
8. Make changes if needed, print and mail. (or
roll into a fancy bottle and gift wrap.)
