Where to Share Your Valentine Messages for Girlfriends

Octopi My Heart Card

Design: Signature Greenvelope

There are so many awesome ways to express your love for someone with valentine messages for girlfriends. Here’s a quick hit list of how to share your love messages on this special day of the year

Valentine’s Day Card

Let’s start with the most obvious — the Valentine’s Day card message. A handpicked card is a must-have for most people who celebrate this love-fueled holiday. Whether you opt for a printed or online card, there’s a Valentine’s Day card out there for everyone. 

Look for the perfect Valentine’s Day card for your girlfriend and get to work crafting a message that says “I love you.” What’s great about a Valentine’s Day card is that you’re free to keep it casual or go ultra-personal and create a fun keepsake to look back on. 

Handwritten Letter

If you’re all about romance and want to sweep your girlfriend off her feet, a handwritten letter or note might be the way to go. Sure, it’s traditional, but sometimes that’s the perfect thing in such a modern world. 

Break out the fancy stationary or find a cute postcard that you can write on. Craft a loving, romantic, heartfelt letter that tells her just how much she means to you. Send it to her home address or present it as a gift when you meet up to celebrate Valentine’s Day together. 

Gift Tag or Note

Valentine messages for girlfriends don’t have to be wordy to be meaningful. One of the sweetest ways you can share your love is to add a few words to a gift tag or note alongside a Valentine’s Day gift

The small space of a gift tag forces you to get creative with what you want to say. There’s no writing an essay or love poem here — it’s straight to the point, and straight from the heart. The same goes for a small note that you might hand over while exchanging gifts — you only need a few words to communicate just how much she means to you.

Social Media Post

Don’t think you have to go old-school for your love messages to count for something. These days, a heartfelt comment on a social media post or a gushing video posted to your TikTok can be just as romantic as anything else for the right couple. 

If you love public displays and know that your sweetheart does too, you could create a viral-inspired video about how much you love her. Take your time planning, directing, starring in, and filming your very own declaration of love to share on social media. You could also do the same thing for your BFF to express why she’s your best friend for life.

Text Message

Some people love a romantic poem or a heartfelt letter while others prefer to treat Valentine’s Day much more casually. If you’re in that second boat, you can’t go wrong with an SMS text message. It’s one of the simplest ways to express love and gratitude for someone without getting too cliché.

Send your girlfriend a quick “I love you” or “Happy Valentine’s Day!” in the morning before you surprise them with an epic dinner or fun celebration later on. If you want your text to really stand out, select a digital Valentine’s Day card and send it as an SMS instead of an email. It’s an easy yet thoughtful way to make her smile. 

Express Your Love with These Valentine Messages for Girlfriends

Whether you go all out for Valentine’s Day or consider it a bit cliché, there’s a style that suits you. Write your long-term girlfriend a love letter alongside a handpicked gift, or send your bestie a funny Valentine’s Day card that you know will make her laugh. That’s the beauty of this holiday — it’s all about celebrating love in a way that makes sense for you and your gal.
