Valentine’s Day is nearly here and the loved up but disorganised among us will be trying to find the perfect way to express their love – so we’ve rounded up some romantic quotes for you to use
Getting all your thoughts about your loved one down on a piece of card isn’t as easy as you’d think.
While a simple ‘Happy Birthday!’ or ‘Merry Christmas!’ might suffice on other days of the year, a bit more thought needs to go into a Valentine’s Day card. Your other half will no doubt be expecting some effort, but if you’re not great at expressing your feelings or have left your declarations of love until the very last minute, then writing a coherent message of love and admiration might seem like a mammoth task.
But don’t worry, because you can still take inspiration from elsewhere, and it still mean a lot to your partner. Here we’ve collected some swoon-worthy Valentine’s Day quotes for you to copy into your card. This will let your loved one know how much you care. But we recommend adding a line or two from your own heart – it’s Valentine’s after all.
Whether your card is from M&S, Moonpig or made by you, these quotes are the perfect way to impress your loved one and let them know you’re thinking of them.

No matter if you’re newly dating or have been together for 70 years, Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to remind the people you love just how much you love them. While Valentine’s Day mainly focuses on romantic relationships, don’t forget to remind those around you that you love them platonically too.
