Buffalo Grove, IL – There are so many electronic communications options these days that the old-fashioned letter often seems quaint. Don't believe it! According to Sue Fox, StudioNotes Etiquette Expert, handwritten letters were not lost in the dark ages — maybe just overlooked with the onslaught of electronics! This Valentine's Day, show the ones you love how much you appreciate them by following these sure-to-win tips for romantic letter-writing:
If you aren't living under a rock, you've most likely noticed there is a new-founded popularity of personalized notes and letters. Call me old-fashioned, but I still believe that nothing is as thrilling (and romantic) as receiving a nice, long "handwritten" letter full of news, intimacies, and real emotion — the kind of letter that you can read and re-read and tuck away in a special place forever.
When it comes to cards, there is just something more romantic and personal in receiving a well-designed handwritten note card instead of an e-card. You can’t hold an e-mail in your hand, admiring the ink and penmanship. And a text or a Tweet may be a momentary cheery greeting, but when it appears on a gadget there’s nothing intimate about it!
The only "hardware" of letter writing is: pen, ink, paper, brain, and heart! To write a “real” letter (that is, one that does not involve a computer), you need paper, an envelope, a pen (and ink if you use a fountain pen), a postage stamp, and, probably, a wastebasket.
There is no question that etiquette changes with the times, but the tradition of handwritten letters is here to stay. So, this Valentine’s Day think “romance” and take the time to write a love letter for your special Valentine -- maybe tuck it into his or her Valentine's Day gift?
It's time to stock up on real, adult stationery and put the pen to paper. You may surprise yourself with the results!
