40 Creative Ways to Say ‘I Love You’ to Your Sweetheart


How Many of These Can You Say in One Day?

By Emily Brady

In the movie, “Moulin Rouge”, there’s a line that has always stuck with me: “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.”

What gift is greater than telling your darling how much you love them (and hope they love you that intensely in return?) When you and your sweetheart exchanged vows, you promised to love each other no matter what. While those three words are powerful and important, they can easily become a part of your daily routine. If you want those words to continue to mean something throughout the years, there are ways to get creative.

Here are 40 unique ways to say “I love you” to your spouse:

1. You inspire me

2. I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together

3. You add more joy to my life every time I look at you

4. I hope our children are just like you

5. I’m so happy to have you in my life

6. You’re my best friend

7. I love your family

8. I love you more and more every day

9. You’re my favorite person

10. I’m so happy I get to spend forever with you

11. I don’t believe in soulmates, but I think you’re proving me wrong

12. Wherever we go, as long as we get to do it together, I’ll be happy

13. I never imagined I could ever feel as happy as I am when I’m with you

14. Whatever you have to do today, I’m glad to do it with you

15. I’m yours

16. You’re mine

17. You make me want to be better

18. You’re my everything

19. I’m devoted to you

20. You make me laugh, even on my worst days

21. You’re pretty perfect

22. You’re the only one for me

23. I’m always here for you

24. You make me feel amazing

25. I miss you

26. I choose you, every day

27. You’re my dream come true

28. I hate saying goodbye to you

29. I’m sorry

30. How can I make it up to you?

31. I forgive you

32. I’m proud of you

33. Be safe

37. You’re a wonderful father/mother

38. You’re amazing at what you do

39. I need advice on …

40. I’m so glad I met you

While some of these are intentional ways to say “I love you,” not all of them are. You tell your sweetheart you love them through small and simple things, not just through the big grand gestures. How do you tell your spouse you love them? Share in the comments!
