Here’s a range of romantic things to write in a card to a loved one, so you keep your love thriving.
When the holidays or birthdays roll around, it can be difficult to pick out the right card for a spouse, crush or significant other.

If you’re new to a relationship and having trouble dropping the ‘L’ bomb you can try to say it in a written message.
