Loving you messages for significant others, perfect to write in cards!

Love, amore, amour … it’s what makes the bad days a little less difficult and the good days even better. But how do you put what you’re feeling into words?

Romantic messages can come in many different shapes, sizes, and forms. It’s easy to take a couple of seconds to think about your partner and what they like to say how much you love them! Scroll down to learn more about showing your appreciation with a handwritten love note, or a small act of kindness.


Love Languages: How to send messages of love

We are all such different people when it comes to showing our emotions and our love to others. This can even be in a non-romantic way! The 5 Languages of Love is the perfect way to get to know yourself better to send an “I love you” message to someone close to you!

Taking a short quiz can easily help you figure out your own love language as well as those around you. From there you can figure out which romantic message to send to your partner!


Acts of Service

This love language is a physical one, but not in the normal sense. You appreciate when others go out of their way to help you, maybe doing a project you know they don’t enjoy because it helps you out.

To create messages that say “I love you” with this love language, think about taking out the trash before it gets too full, cleaning the bathroom if your partner is having a stressful week, or even volunteering to go grocery shopping. It might seem like little things, but it makes a big difference to someone with this love language.


Quality Time

This language of love means sending loving messages via time spent together. Take a couple of hours alone in a park with a private picnic, have a dinner date with just the two of you … the opportunities are endless!

Picta’Tip: take advantage of your time along to create a photo book from your memories or trips together, available for same-day pickup at Walgreens!


Physical Touch

The love language we all think about, touching, hugging little kisses … but it can be much more than that to send a message of love.

Think about rubbing your partners feet, braiding their hair, or simply holding their hand in public to let them know how much they mean to you!


Words of Affirmation

Saying things out loud for someone that has this love language is just the start. It isn’t always easy to express your feelings out loud, so maybe writing a handwritten note, photo card, or even your favorite quote can be the way to go to show your partner some love.

Picta’Tip: printing out their favorite quote, or even a little saying that you tell them all the time as a magnet or even poster will let them know you care.

Or go the extra mile with a photo card and a handwritten message to show them how proud you are of them with a photo of the two of you!


Receiving Gifts

We’ve saved the best for last! (Kidding! Everyone is different in their own way which makes these loving messages so unique!) Receiving gifts can range from large gifts to small gifts and is the best way to let someone with this love language know how much you care about them.

Picta’Tip: with a wide range of products on our apps for same-day pickup at CVS and Walgreens, giving last-minute gifts has never been easier! From posters to wall decor to magnets and more …
