Valentine’s Day Messages to Your Family
Longer messages to help you express more fully the love you have for your family.
When I tell you I love you, I don’t say it out of habit or just to make conversation. I say it because you really are the best thing that ever happened to me.
Happy Valentine’s Day to a most special person! You fill my life with joy, sweetness, and love in ways that can never be measured. No matter how much you grow, or how far away you are, you’ll always have a special place in my heart.
I guess I’m supposed to write you a message in this Valentine’s Day card to tell you how I feel about you, but I don’t think words could express the love I have for you. This is my best attempt at describing the indescribable, explaining the unexplainable, and expressing the inexpressible.
Last night I looked up into the stars, and matched each one with a reason why I love you. I was doing great until I ran out of stars.
Sometimes, it’s hard to find words to tell you how much you mean to me. A lot of times, I don’t say anything at all. But I hope someday, you’ll understand, having you is what I live for.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. This kind of love is ultimately and perfectly displayed in Jesus. Here on earth, I see it clearly in you. Thank you for being such a wonderful [son/daughter/sister/uncle/etc]. I love you!
(from I Corinthians 13)
[I pray that] you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
(from Ephesians 3:17-19)
Valentine’s Day Compliment Quotes
Spruce up your Valentine card with a thoughtful compliment. “I love you because…” or “I love your…” or “I love the way you…” Sometimes silly compliments are fun (“You could totally survive a zombie apocalypse” or “On a scale of 1 to 10, you’re an eleven!”) but ultimately it’s the specific, thoughtful compliments that are the most meaningful.
Your smile is infectious.
You always know just what to say.
I love the way you are always ready to help.
You always have encouraging things to say to others.
You’re such a wonderful example to others.
Spending time with you is always such a blast.
You have the best laugh.
You crack me up!
Our family is better because you’re in it.
You’re always so thoughtful.

Tips for Writing Great Valentine’s Day Cards
Buy a card. This shows that the recipient is valuable. But also make sure you write a personal note inside – this shows that you’re thinking about them and not just fulfilling an obligation.
Make a card. This tells the recipient that you’ve put time and effort into their Valentine. If you’re going to DIY your Valentine’s Day card(s), be sure to use quality materials and write out the contents carefully with nice pens.
Use a quote. Quotes help expand your thought vocabulary to include fresh and interesting ideas. That’s what the list above is for – use it!
Add your own thoughts. In other words, don’t just use quotes in your Valentine’s Day cards. While it’s good to broaden your horizons with new expressions, your loved ones want to hear what’s in your heart. Tell them!
Keep it simple. Have a simple, clear expression of love at the center of your card. If you want more space, write a letter.
Be specific. Saying “You’re the best!” really doesn’t mean anything. A much more meaningful expression of your love is something like, “You’re the best son ever because you always notice ways you can help out, whether it’s carrying groceries, letting your sister go first, or giving me a hug when you come home from school. I love these things about you!”
Add the date. Some people love to save their Valentines. Write the date inside a little heart on the back. It’s an extra-special touch that they will appreciate when they notice it – perhaps years later when going through old boxes of photos and keepsakes!
