Knitted hearts in different colours

French inspiration for your Valentine’s cards messages

It’s that time of year again, February the 14th is almost here, you’ve got the card and gift, maybe even planned a special celebration but now you just can’t find the right words to write in the card for your loved one. Tough gig!

I try to write original messages in my cards but as time passes it gets harder to avoid the usual phrases, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who struggles with this.

It is argued that French is the most romantic language in the world, and having lived here now for nearly 9 years I can see why. So I’ve taken inspiration from my French counterparts to give you 14 romantic French phrases you can use in your greetings cards this Valentine’s Day.

14 Romantic French Sayings

Je t’aime plus que le jourI love you more than the day
Je t’aime à la folieI love you like crazy
Je t’aimerai jusqu’à mon dernier souffleI love you till my last breath
Je veux passer ma vie avec toiI want a lifetime with you
Nous vivons d’amour et d’eau fraîcheWe live on love alone
“Entre deux cœurs qui s’aiment, nul besoin de paroles““Between two hearts there is no need for words” – Marceline Desbordes-Valmore
Tu es tout pour moiYou are my everything
Tu fais partie de moiYou are a part of me
Je suis à toiI am yours
L’amour ne meurt jamaisLove never dies
Tu es l’amour de ma vieYou are the love of my life
Toujours dans mon cœurAlways in my heart
Je t’aimerai pour toujoursI will love you forever
Pour toujours et à jamaisForever and ever

These phrases work equally well in the French or English version, so you could use either for your cards for Valentine’s Day or even your anniversary cards too.
