1.) Rhyming Letter
A little rhythm never hurt!!!
Rhyming is a great and fun way to make an impression on paper and anyone can do it! The words can be your own, or you can reference a favorite song or poem.
For additional structure, you can follow a rhyme scheme which is a common poetry technique. For example you could use an ABAB rhyme scheme in which the ending word of every other line rhymes.
Roses are Red (A)
Violets are blue (B)
Chivalry’s dead (A)
But my heart’s true (B)
2. Famous Poetry
If you’re experiencing some writer’s block, as everyone does, you can always turn to the great poets to have your back.
From Shakespeare, to Oscar Wilde, to Rupi Kaur, there are so many great poems from amazing authors to choose from. You’ll have no problem finding one that best expresses your flavor of love.
If you’re into classical poetry, ballads by Shakespeare are a great source of love literature! But there’s nothing like a classic love song everyone can recognize and relate to.

3. Inside Jokes
Inside Jokes are a great way to make your loved one smile. You can use an inside joke to tell a story and keep your letter lighthearted or from feeling overly romantic.
This method is also best if your loved one is the type to gag at over-the top instagram proposals or mushy anniversary posts. To each their own!
Inside jokes are also great to use if you’re writing to a family member or old friend you may not have seen in a while. There’s nothing like a funny memory to throw back to the good old times.
Writing an anonymous love letter can be mysterious and exciting if you wish to share your feelings but remain unknown to the recipient.
If you don’t know the address of the person you wish to send your letter to you can leave it in a place you know they would find it or give it to a mutual friend to pass on to them.
5. Describing Him/Her
Describing your loved one is an extra romantic way to make your love letter more intimate. Try to be descriptive as possible by using creative adjectives.
You can start by describing their physical features and go on to describe all the things you like about their personality. Make them feel loved and beautiful!
6. Cheesy Quotes
Cheesy quotes or pickup lines might not be your first thought when it comes to romance, but they do make people smile! And a smile is an expression of love
For cheesy pick up line inspiration, try watching a few episodes of any 90’s sitcom.
7. Similes and Metaphors
Similes and metaphors are a literary device where you compare a subject to something, or in this case your loved one to a beautiful sunrise.
Using similes and metaphors really help to get the creative juices flowing when you are struggling to think of expressive words for your love letter.
8. Anecdotal Approach
Anecdote or a short personal story is a way to let your partner or significant other see the world through your eyes. What you show them is up to you! You could tell the story of the first time you noticed them or your perspective of what it was like to grow up in the same neighborhood
With anecdotes, you can make it as lighthearted or personal as you wish all based on your experience.
9. Romantic Memories
Romantic memories are somewhat similar to anecdotes, except these revolve more around romantic moments with your loved one. This is great if you’re celebrating an anniversary and wish to reflect on a favorite moment, especially if you’ve been together for a while!
10. Add an Inspired Drawing
Images can express when words fail us. Wanna give your letter some additional creative flare but you’re all out of words? Add a drawing! Everyone enjoys a bit of custom art.
It can be anything from a small doodle with a few flowers to a whole page portrait! The only limit is your own imagination. And if you wish to include a bit of artwork with your letter but aren’t the best at drawing, you can always ask for help from local artists!
