This really helped me tell my crush that I liked him and turns out he likes me too. I said, ¨”Hey Nathan can we talk for a minute??¨ He says,¨ Yeah, what´s up?? Then I replied, ¨ I been meaning to tell you that you are one in a million. And I would like it if we were more than just friends.¨ Then to my surprise, he felt the same way towards me and 2 hours later he asked me out!! And of course, I said yes!!!

Anastasia Koltai

Wow, this is sooo romantic!

Thanks!! Nathan is really one in a million. I fell right in front of him right before I started the conversation. In my head, I thought now what is he going to think about me?? There is no way he is going to like me now, but I might as well give it a shot.

Before I started the conversation I fell right in front of him.He asked me if I was ok. And I said yes as he was helping me up off the floor.

120 Cute & Creative Ways To Say 'I Love You'

Little things (like this) mean a whole lot..

By Jim & Carrie Gordon — Written on Apr 05, 2022

i love you to the moon and back

How strong is your communication with your partner ? Do you find that the two of you text, email, nod at and grunt in reply to each other more than you typically have meaningful conversations with each other?

Admittedly, we all get caught up in our busy day-to-day lives, and often it's our most important communication — expressing our feelings of love for our partners — that pays the biggest price.

Why is finding ways to say "I love you" so important in relationships?

When we forget to say those three little words 'I love you' often enough and with full sincerity, even in the form of a note scrawled with one of the best, most inspiring love quotes you can find, our connection with each other begins to suffer.

The connection in the relationship may start to weaken so slowly that we don't even notice as the distance continues growing.

In his New York Times Bestseller, " The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts ", marriage expert Dr. Gary Chapman urges couples to learn how to express their love for each other in the forms their partner gives and receives love most naturally, be it through physical touch, gifts, acts of service or devotion, quality time, or words of affirmation.

In particular, he stresses one important communication skill related to words of affirmation that all too often gets overlooked in our fast-paced digital society — and that method of connection is the written word.

Think about it ... love letters used to be epic ! They were tied with ribbon, stored in boxes for decades, and passed down through generations.

Don't worry, your expressions of love can be epic, too — whether written love notes, verbal declarations, or through text messages and body language.

For being a mere three words and eight letters, "I love you," sure is a phrase that carries a lot of weight. When said genuinely, it's perfectly, adequately meaningful all on its own. Still, if you're looking to mix things up when professing your head-over-heels affection for your partner, there are a multitude of ways to say I love you. (Just ask Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore's characters in Ghost. Ditto .)

Remember: Not everyone expresses or experiences love and affection the same, so be sure to communicate with your partner about how to best give and receive love . You may need to specifically hear words of affirmation every day to feel safe and secure, while your partner feels loved when their external needs are being met. (They might put grocery shopping and errand-running on the same level as those three little words!)

From thoughtful actions to ultra-romantic phrasing, here are 109 ways to say I love you.

  • It’s not easy for me to say this, but I think it’s time for us to end our relationship.
  • I don’t see a future for us together, and it’s only fair to be honest about it.
  • I’ve realized that we have different priorities and values that make it challenging for us to continue as a couple.
  • We’ve been through a lot together, but I think it’s time for a fresh start for both of us.
  • I believe ending our relationship is the right decision for both of us to find happiness.
  • I value the time we’ve spent together, but I think we need to move on separately.

  • It’s important for us to be honest with ourselves and acknowledge that we’re not thriving in this relationship.

As you saw in the last section, English is a language rich with sayings, quotes, books, songs and movies about love and romance . If you want to understand the many romantic references you come across , you’ll need to expand your vocabulary.

As you well know, love itself is a universal language spoken everywhere in the world. This means you simply can’t learn the English language without learning how to say “I love you.”

Of course, if you keep using only these three words to express your love, it could get boring very quickly. The good news is that there are lots of creative and indirect ways to express love .

The video below shows you scenes from different romantic movies to illustrate the many, many different ways of saying “I love you.”

Unique Ideas To Say ‘I Love You’

Now that you know what to say, here are a few unique ideas to make that moment memorable for both of you. We have included ideas both for the first time as well as for the many times that come afterward.

  • If you are good at baking, then bake your beloved their favorite cake and write the message on it.
  • Record your words in a voice message and send it to your sweetheart; they can go back and listen to it as many times as they wish. Isn’t it kind of sweet?
  • Customized coffee mugs are the best as you will have the freedom to express your thoughts, make them quirky, funny, romantic, or cheesy, it’s all in your hands.
  • If it’s your first time saying ‘I love you,’ then make it special by taking them out to their favorite restaurant, walking hand in hand to a romantic place, looking into your beloved’s eyes and pouring out those special words.
  • Write a few love notes and leave them in unexpected places such as their packed lunch, the wardrobe, in their coat pockets, in their wallet or purse. Imagine how thrilled they will be when they open their purse for cash and find your priceless note.
  • If your partner is going to take a shower just after you, then write a personal message once the mirror gets fogged with steam. Although the message will be invisible once the steam has cleared, it will magically appear when your partner takes a shower. If the mirror doesn’t get fogged, then do not get disappointed. You can always write your message on a note and stick it on the mirror.
  • This is an over-the-top idea. Cut heart-shaped pieces out of a colored paper and fill each heart with one reason why you love your partner. Make as many as 100 or more and either stick them on your bedroom door or put them all in a box and gift it to your sweetheart. They will jump with joy reading all those messages.
  • Bake cupcakes and write short love messages on them. If your partner has a sweet tooth, then these cupcakes will be sweeter than usual.
  • Go through all your old photos, pick some and match each one with a love quote , stick them in a journal and gift it to the love of your life.
  • Roses are the epitome of love. Send your sweetheart a bouquet of roses along with your I-love-you note, or decorate your bed with rose petals and place a love letter on the bed.
  • Social media is the modern way to shout out your love. Type in your love message along with a cute picture of you both, post it, and tag your significant other (make sure your partner is ok with it).
  • Make a playlist of songs you both like. In between the songs, record your love messages, gift it to your sweetheart; they will be thrilled to hear your voice in between.
  • A love letter can never go wrong. Handwrite it, or email it but pour your heart into words, and send them a heartfelt love letter.
  • Write your message in a bottle, decorate it, and present it to your beloved. This classic way never gets old.
  • Buy a chalkboard with the words ‘ I love you’ written across, write one love message a day until their birthday or Valentine’s day. This is like a daily dose of love each morning.
  • If your partner is late from office and you know they had a long and tiring day, do their part of chores and leave a love note. They will remember this forever.
  • Book tickets to their favorite vacation place and gift them along with your love note. Do we need to say more?

Being in a relationship in the digital age has its checks and balances. We can reach the people we’re dating instantly, which means there’s more time we can spend with our partners. But we’ve all been in a situation where we can’t figure out how to express love in a way that feels natural through a screen. So here are 5 cute ways to say “I love you” in a text.

Cute Ways to Say ‘I Love You’ in a Text’

Romantic Ways To Say I Love You Text

And what if you’re in another country, let’s say on a whimsical summer vacation in Paris, and you stumble upon the man of your dreams. Or what if you want to spice things up and make the phrase less serious? Regardless of the reason, we’ve included ways to say “I love you” in 20 different languages.

Ways To Say ‘I Love You’ in 20 Other Languages

  • Arabic: “Ana behibak” (male) or “Ana behibek” (female)
  • Czech: “Miluji te”
  • Dutch: “Ik hou van je”
  • French: “Je t’aime” or “Je t’adore”
  • Filipino: “Mahal kita”
  • German: “Ich liebe dich”
  • Greek: “S’agapo”
  • Hebrew: “Ani ohev otah” (female) or “Ani ohevet othah” (male)
  • Hindi: “Maim tumase pyara karata hum”
  • Italian: “Ti amo”
  • Japanese: “Aishiteru” or “Anata ga daisuki desu”
  • Korean: “Sarang hapnida”
  • Latin: “Te amo”
  • Norwegian: “Jeg elsker deg”
  • Polish: “Kocham cie”
  • Portuguese: “Eu te amo”
  • Russian: “Ya tebya lyublyu”
  • Swedish: “Jag alskar dig”
  • Spanish: “Te quiero” or “Te amo”
  • Turkish: “Seni seviyorum”

Sometimes a quote can express love in a way our own words cannot.

It can be hard to make sense of your own feelings when in love—feelings that are usually overwhelming and hard to put into words. But at the same time, your heart can grow heavy if there are no ways to express your love. It can grow heavy with the nagging need to be heard.

And what I mean by being heard is that you want the object of your affection to truly understand the depth of your feelings.

Before we start breaking down any specific words or phrases, one thing to note: saying I love you and making romantic gestures is obviously important to any relationship. But it’s not, I repeat, NOT the be-all-end-all of your relationship.

Focus on the quality of the time your spend with him, and try not to obsess over what he says and what you say. Overthinking and over-analyzing how you say “I love you” might actually blur the sentiment you’re trying to express.

Sometimes you can say “I love you” by pushing him up against a wall and “making love” to him (see what I did there?). There’s a reason we always see this kind of moment in movies—it’s effective, and usually works! Words are not the only tools we have to say “I love you”; men actually feel love more with a physical expression. Remember: there are many languages of love. Men happen to speak the best in body language.

Holding his hand or looking into his eyes are good starting points for showing love in a way that he might respond to better than most ways of saying “I love you.”

Let yourself express your love for him in a way that feels natural. If something feels natural, it will come across in a way that he can intuit. What better way to communicate something naturally than with good old-fashioned body language. Though it’s important to establish a natural way of expressing your love for him, be sure it’s never forced. Trying to “force” a romantic exchange between you and him will set you up for disappointment.

And speaking of disappointment, a key point to always remember is this: don’t look for him to respond in a certain way. Have no problem with how he responds. Listen to him and be fully engaged in each passing moment. Love is not something that can be concretely defined. Love just is.

It’s my hope that you’ll incorporate these expressions of love into your relationship to bring you and the man you love even closer together. In most relationships, there are usually two pivotal moments that determine whether or not the outcome will be heartbreak or “happily ever after.” At some point, he’s going to ask himself if this is a woman he should commit to long-term. And his answer to that will determine everything, so be prepared to determine whether or not a man sees you as girlfriend material or as a fling. If you aren’t, please read this next: The #1 Thing Men Desire In A Woman…

But even then, disaster can strike no matter how deeply in love you and your man are. If at some point he starts to lose interest, are you ready for it? Let’s say he doesn’t call back and he becomes more emotionally closed off. It seems like he’s pulling away—do you know what to do? If you’re not willing to put your relationship and the future of your love life in danger, read this now: If He’s Pulling Away, Do This…

I say I love you to my wife constantly, and she says it to me constantly: at least 5 times a day. We have been together for 30 years now and there is still a burning passion in the two of us. All of you people that think that saying I love you too often “takes away from it” or “cheapens” it have no idea what true love is. The words “I love you” are strong and beautiful like a diamond. And like a diamond, they can be used over and over again and not wear out. They aren’t an old set of tires on a beat up old pick up truck.

'data-no-lazy-load src=

i think “LOVE”is a powerful word and should be said in all sincerity and proven

'data-no-lazy-load src=

Being apart from someone you really love is difficult yes. Especially that all you can do is to tell him what you feel “I LOVE YOU”. Like you have to think of how to say it differently everyday but.. you wouldnt mind it anymore. What i best learned from love is that , if it is true, and if it is meant to be for the both of you , it will last FOREVER.

'data-no-lazy-load src=

So sweet! These are great ways to say one thing, without saying the words. I good way to keep the phrase alive and well in your relationship.

Saying I LOVE YOU should be reserved for the times that you are truly in love with someone. I feel that many kids like to use the words way more than they should. By using the phrases that you have listed here, it seems that you can get the same message across without actually saying I LOVE YOU.

Everyone has there own idea about how to have a good relationship. There shouldn’t be anyone judging and telling other people how to handle one.

It is not easy to stick with one part of a routine for a long period of time. It does make the combo is better than any other option!

Great post. Most guys would love a girl that is all about the I LOVE YOU’s, but I like it when other words can be used.

I am the same way. If you can tell it to me in another phrase and without saying those words, I am totally going to be in love!

I consider myself an expert at the I LOVE YOU phrase. These are great additions to what I know.

I love you has become so common these days. Young people do not even know the words before they are saying to a partner.

All of these are nice. It would be nice to hear them from a man for a change!

Sometimes you have to surround yourself with the type of man that is willing to take the right steps and talk to a woman like this!

'data-no-lazy-load src=

If a man cries he isn’t weak he has a pure heart. If a man says I LOVE YOU he means it. If a man can’t say I love you he doesn’t deserve you. There are two types of men, realists and romantics, realists get lots of girls, romantics get one girl and that girl is the only one he needs.

This is great. I love being able to say the same thing without always using the exact same words. It just starts to sound stale after a while.

I wish my last b/f would have done things like this. He rarely ever told me that he liked how I looked or even just kissed my on the cheek for good measure. It’s too bad for him, I really liked him a lot.

Romantic ways to say I LOVE YOU are a great way to let your partner know how much they mean to you!

My parents say it to each other all the time and I could never figure out whey they were never bored with it. Then my mom explained that they didn’t want to be apart without saying because it might be the last time they see each other.

Like many others here, I do not like to say it too much. The novelty wears off and then you are left with a bland statement.

The best part that I like about LOVE and expressing it, comes when you do that one thing that really catches your mate off guard and they melt right in front of you!

It helps that you have a guy that accepts this type of action, right? Otherwise it would seem like it is for nothing.

I was asked by my b/f if I was annoyed by him always saying the words I LOVE YOU. Now I can give him a couple of other options that he might not have thought about and it will mix things up a little for us both ;)

ALL of these are great ways to say I LOVE YOU. The best part is that for each of these you can find at least a few that will fit just about any personality. Saying I LOVE YOU and being romantic is the best :)

Awesome! Being able to say I LOVE YOU without saying those words is really a true art. The ones that have mastered it have my attention all the time!

I agree, I do not like the phrase going stale because it is said so often. These options keep that from happening.

I love you is very romantic already, but I can see how some of these would sound even better than just using the actual words.

Wow, page two has so many great ways to say I LOVE YOU that everyone could learn from them.

I wish I was an expert in saying these words. Instead, they are something that I have yet to even hear spoken to me.

Some people have it come naturally to them, while others have to be shown that this part of their brain does exist.

I always held I LOVE YOU as an important part of any relationship. Once I was in one that was longer than short, I realized that there are different ways to say it.

These are great. Saying I love you is one thing, but to be able to say it romantically is a whole other ballgame that you must learn.

I was taught very early in my life that saying I LOVE YOU was precious and it should not be just tossed around. I choose to say it different ways and that is a great way to keep it from getting “cheap”.

I agree! However, saying it too often takes away from what it means, right?

That is what I feel. I am sure that every one takes that differently, but that is how I always looked at it.

99 Ways To Say I Love You (With Words And Without!)

c84df75b4562878bf092c20eb3cd7edf

Valentine’s season is upon us! I won’t listen when anyone tries to tell me that Valentine’s Day is a holiday made up by greeting card companies to sell more cards. I absolutely love Valentine’s Day and everything that comes with it—chocolate, flowers, the color pink, winter, heart-shaped things, and love. 

If you’re celebrating a new relationship this season and aren’t ready to say “I love you,” you’ll find more than a few alternatives in the list below to help you bridge that gap and show your significant other that you care deeply. 

But if you’ve been with your partner for a million years, you’ll find just as many tips here. Maybe you already say “I love you” every day, but that shouldn’t be nearly the only way you communicate your affection in a healthy, thriving relationship. Read on for 99 things to say or do to show your someone special that you love them. 

How To Say “I Love You”

  • “I saw this picture (or article, meme, etc.) and thought of you.”
  • “I heard this song and thought of you.”
  • “I never get tired of spending time with you.”
  • Give a compliment on their looks—the classic “you’re cute/hot” works well here, but try to find something specific to compliment for deeper meaning.

  • “I’m crazy for you.”

The most romantic ways to say 'I love you', from the romance experts

Debbie Elliot

Debbie Elliott

Ahead of Valentine's Day, we ask romance writers and advice columnists for the best or most memorable lines that say "I heart you."

DEBBIE ELLIOTT, HOST:

Valentine's Day is just a few days away. Trying to figure out how to tell your honey how much you love them? Well, movies can help, maybe.

(SOUNDBITE OF FILM, "JERRY MAGUIRE")

TOM CRUISE: (As Jerry Maguire) You complete me.

(SOUNDBITE OF FILM, "NOTTING HILL")

JULIA ROBERTS: (As Anna Scott) And don't forget I'm also just a girl standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.

(SOUNDBITE OF FILM, "CASABLANCA")

INGRID BERGMAN: (As Ilsa Lund) But what about us?

HUMPHREY BOGART: (As Rick Blaine) We'll always have Paris.

(SOUNDBITE OF FILM, "WHEN HARRY MET SALLY")

BILLY CRYSTAL: (As Harry Burns) I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

ELLIOTT: But this is NPR. We have to consult the experts. Novelist Allycie Rye loves this section from Mary Oliver's poem Coming Home, she says it sums up how it feels when the world isn't quite a right fit for you, but you are the right fit for your special person.

ALLYCIA RYE: (Reading) And what we see is a world that cannot cherish us but which we cherish. And what we see is our life moving like that along the dark edges of everything, headlights sweeping the blackness, believing in a thousand fragile and unprovable things.

ELLIOTT: Lovely but maybe a little long? How about this?

CASEY MCQUISTON: (Reading) You pierce my soul.

ELLIOTT: That's romantic comedy writer Casey McQuiston, quoting from Jane Austen's novel "Persuasion."

MCQUISTON: I think that is absolutely devastating in the most wonderful way.

ELLIOTT: For a lot of our experts, love really means what you do or say in the moment. John Paul Brammer writes the column Hola Papi on Substack.

JOHN PAUL BRAMMER: I mean, for me, the most romantic thing you can possibly do is tell me that you picked up food for me and that it's waiting back home. Oh, my goodness. I would melt.

ELLIOTT: Allycia Rye remembers when her partner said the perfect thing at the perfect time.

RYE: We had kind of a tumultuous birth and labor and everything. And he just looked at me, and he said, wow, you are, like, the toughest person I have ever met in my life. And I thought that was wildly romantic.

AMANDA MORRIS: I was interviewing a couple where the woman in the relationship was very, very sick.

ELLIOTT: Amanda Morris is a disability reporter for The Washington Post.

MORRIS: One of the first things her partner said to her was, I'm here for you. Like, I'm not going anywhere. That's, like, so powerful because he could have said, shall I compare thee to a summer's day? And yada yada yada. And no offense to Shakespeare here, but, like, just simply stating what your intentions are and how you actually feel about somebody is just, I think, the most powerful thing you can do.

ELLIOTT: It is. And you can still quote Shakespeare if you'd like. Or you can channel Nicolas Cage from Casey McQuiston's favorite movie, "Moonstruck."

MCQUISTON: I love you not like they told you love is. Love don't make things nice. It ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. And this is my favorite part. We aren't here to make things perfect.

(SOUNDBITE OF FILM, "MOONSTRUCK")

NICOLAS CAGE: (As Ronny Cammareri) Not us, not us. We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and die. I mean, the storybooks are [expletive]. Now I want you to come upstairs with me and get in my bed.

ELLIOTT: So have a happy Valentine's Day, no matter how you say it or what you do about it.

10 Sly Ways To Say "I Love You" Without Ever Using The L-Word

S aying "I love you" comes with so much baggage. First, there's the question of what you want it to mean. Is it a declaration of commitment? Is it a simple statement of appreciation? Do you even know why you want to say it?

Then there's the question of when to say it. Do you plan a time, like a romantic dinner or a lazy Saturday morning in bed? Do you let it pop out unexpectedly? Or do you wait for him to say it first ?

RELATED:  What True Love Means, According To A Therapist

And finally, there's the question of how it's received. Will it freak him out? Will he understand what you mean? Will he say it back? And if he does say it back, does he mean it the same way you do? 

No matter how you answer all these questions, telling someone you love them is a big deal. So what if you're not quite ready to say it but you want to show it? Or what if you've already said it, and you want something more than just words?

Here is a list of ways to say "I love you" without using the "L" word. Our favorite is this one: Stock your fridge with his favorite beer, carve his name into a tree, and  let him see you cry . 

In addition to the above, we'd like to add our own.

Here are 10 sly ways to say "I love you" without ever using the L-word:

1. take a picture of yourself smiling while you're on the phone with him so he can see how happy he makes you.

Time to work on those selfie skills.

2. Grab him when you're in front of a mirror or a reflective store window and say, "Look, it's us!"

You can use the opportunity to take a cute photo of the two of you in the reflection.

3. Do the dishes even though it's his turn

You don't like how he does them anyway.

4. Let him have the smushy pillow

It stops him from snoring .

5. Pay for dinner

It's about time you treated him to a romantic dinner date .

6. Always answer his phone calls and respond right away to his texts and emails

It shows that you care.

7. Make his bed after he's left in the morning

He likes the way you do it.

8. Kiss his eyelids

It's a very intimate gesture.

9. Be the outside spoon

Men like to be held too.

10. Buy him toilet paper when you notice he's almost out

This is to help you as well.

50 Cute Ways to Say “I Love You” to Your Child

50 Cute Ways to Say

Inside: If you’ve been saying “I love you” on autopilot, it might be time to mix up the routine. Here are 50 cute ways to say “I love you” to your child so they feel secure in your love.

As parents, the phrase “I love you” probably comes out of our mouths more than any other—although “be careful” and “stop bugging your sister” have got to be up there, too.

You say “I love you” to your child before they head off to school for the day, when you tuck them in at night, and in countless other small moments, day in and day out.

But after a while, saying “I love you” becomes something you do on autopilot. The phrase can feel like a routine rather than heartfelt words filled with warmth. So instead of your child hearing those words and feeling secure in your love for them, the words barely connect.

In the hustle and bustle of family life, saying “I love you” to your child can become as notable as saying “don’t forget your backpack” or “time for dinner.” In other words: Not at all notable.

Here’s the Solution

Your child needs to feel secure in your love for them. Because when a child feels warmth and affection from a parent, that shapes the child’s happiness for life—research shows that expressing love to your child results in life-long positive outcomes for the child. That includes higher self-esteem, better parent-child communication, and fewer psychological and behavior problems. 1 Cox, M. J., & Harter, K. S. M. (2003). Parent-child relationships. In M. H. Bornstein, L. Davidson, C. L. M. Keyes, & K. A. Moore (Eds.),  Well-being: Positive development across the life course  (pp. 191–204). Lawrence Erlbaum Associates Publishers.

But any phrase you use a lot can lose its meaning, including “I love you.” This phenomenon is called semantic satiation, and it means that repeating a word or phrase can make it less meaningful for the listener—or even meaningless. 2 Petit, Z. (2015, December 9). Semantic Satiation: Why Words Sometimes Sound Weird or Lose All Meaning . Mental Floss.

The solution? Mix up your regular routine with a handful of new and cute ways to say “I love you” to your child.

These cute ways to say

But First, You Need to Know

Sharing sweet words with your child is just one way to show how much you love them. I would never want to suggest that simply talking about how much you love your child could replace giving them hugs and kisses, actively listening when they talk, and spending quality time together.

So if you’re looking for some fresh ways to show love to your child every day— even when you’re busy—here are a few more resources for you:

  • Surprise your child with a  new  kind of hug from this list of 21 Sweet and Silly Ways to Hug Your Child So They Feel Absolutely Loved .
  • To encourage your child to open up about what’s important to them, what has them worried, and what they’re excited about, check out 100 Non-Boring Questions for Kids to Get Them Talking .
  • If you struggle to fit in quality one-on-one time with your child, you’ll love The Best 10-Minute Fix to Spending Quality Time With Kids .
  • Take five minutes to read aloud to your child from a special book: 10 Picture Books About Love That Will Make Your Kids Feel Absolutely Loved .

50 Cute Ways to Say “I Love You” to Your Child

When you want to make sure your child truly feels the meaning of your loving words, pick one of these heartfelt but cute ways to say “I love you” to your child.

Because you don’t use these phrases every day, they’ll disrupt the automatic “I love you” reflex and get your child’s attention so that the words don’t go in one ear and out the other without connecting. (Side note: Many of these phrases work well for spouses, too!)

When you sprinkle a few of these sweet phrases and actions into your days, the meaning of your message will get through, and your child will feel secure in your unconditional love.

  • You make me smile.
  • For extra giggles, touch your child’s toes when you say “toes,” their nose when you say “nose,” and the top of their head when you say the last line.
  • As an alternative, some families use “I love you from your head to your toes—and from your knees to your nose.”
  • You make my heart feel full.
  • I love you so much I want to eat you all up! (If your child is familiar with the classic picture book Where the Wild Things Are † , they’ll love hearing this one.)

  • You’re one of a kind.
  • I love your insides and your outsides!
  • You make life fun. (This phrase is featured on  our sweet I Love You Bookmarks . Get the whole set here so that every time your child reaches for one, they’ll feel absolutely loved.)

Hand these I Love You Bookmarks to your child and make them smile

  • Seeing you happy makes me happy.
  • You are a precious treasure to me.
  • I love your laugh/smile.
  • It’s you I like. Every part of you. (Perfect for fans of Mister Rogers !)

  • More than all the stars in the sky
  • More than all the fish in the sea,
  • More than all the crayons in the biggest crayon box,
  • More than monkeys love bananas,
  • More than milk loves cookies,
  • More than cupcakes love sprinkles, and so on—feel free to come up with your own silly comparisons too!
  • I heart you.
  • Say “I love you” in sign language . (Teach your child what that sign means so that any time you flash them the sign, they’ll know what’s in your heart.)

  • You are my favorite 5-year-old. (Just replace with their current age!)
  • I love you to the moon and back. (Or you can take this one step further by adding on, like “I love you to the moon, past the end of our solar system, to the next galaxy over and to every other galaxy in the universe, to the alien planet no one knows about yet, and all the way back home.”)
  • I’m a fan of you. (This one is inspired by our favorite pick for family movie night, We Bought a Zoo . An alternative is: “I’m your biggest fan.”)
  • I love you so much that my heart might just explode . (To ham it up, you can cover your face or avert your eyes and say, “No, really. I can’t look at you anymore, or I’ll go kablooey!” Out of this whole list of cute ways to say “I love you” to your child, this is the one that gets the most giggles from my kids!)
  • You light up my day.
  • Then hold your arms out as wide as you can.
  • Alternatively, you can ask “Do you know how much I love you?” and then answer “THIS much” with your arms held out wide.
  • Come up with a code word that means “I love you” so you can say it any time, even if you’re around others or in a crowded place. For example, you could teach your child that any time you say “whirligig” or “flibbertigibbet,” that means “I love you.”
  • I love you so big.
  • You are my sunshine. (You can also keep it going with “You make me happy when skies are gray.”)
  • I have fun when I’m with you.
  • I love you more than French fries. (Or insert your favorite food like pizza or cupcakes.)
  • Seeing you smile makes me smile.
  • You are made of awesome sauce.
  • I love you so stinking much.
  • Teach your child that when you mouth the words “olive juice” and “I love you,” it looks the same. Then a day or two later, get their attention and say “olive juice” aloud. It’ll take them a second, but they’ll remember!
  • I wouldn’t trade you for a million gabazillion dollars.
  • I love you when you feel brave or scared, or
  • I love you when you’re serious or silly. (Side note: The inspiration for this one came from the sweet children’s book called The I Love You Book .)
  • I miss you when I blink. (This is also the name of a funny memoir from a mom about trying to do it all.)
  • Channel your inner Buddy the Elf and sing, “I love you! I love you! I love you!”

  • I love you times infinity.
  • You are pure magic.
  • I love you even when you have stinky feet,
  • I love you even when your hair is a mess, or
  • I love you even when you have chocolate ice cream on your face. (By the way, the inspiration for this comes from the song “All Ways” that’s on this playlist of The Best 20 Love Songs for Kids . If you’re looking for more cute ways to say “I love you” to your child, check the lyrics of those songs!)
  • I wish I didn’t have to go to work so we could stay home together and play all day!
  • Say “I love you” in a different language, like “Je t’aime” in French or “Ich liebe dich” in German. (Here’s a list of some common “I love you” translations from the Duolingo app.)
  • I love you the mostest.
  • I love your face.
  • You’re a gem.
  • Come up with a secret handshake that means “I love you.” For example, you can teach your child that when you squeeze their hand three times in a row, that means “I love you.”
  • No matter how many times I say “I love you,” I will always love you more than that!
  • You’ve got a friend in me. ( Toy Story fans love this one!)
  • If I had a time machine, I would go back in time and spend today with you all over again.
  • I love you three thousand. (This one’s perfect for Iron Man fans, but you can use any random big number.)

  • Ask, “You know what my favorite thing about you is?” They might say, “No, what?” Then reply: “Everything.”
  • Of all the days I’ve lived, the best ones have been with you.
  • I love you because you giggle at my stupid jokes,
  • I love you because you like curry, or
  • I love you because you hate getting pruney fingers in the bath.

So glad to hear this resonated, Jennica!

I love the “squeeze hand three times”, this has been something my husband and I have done for 25 years. Anything in sets of three, flashing car lights following the other, winking 3 times, honking the horn, he squeezes my shoulder or arm. I love this one!! It’s like our own secret code!

Aw, that’s so sweet, Shannon! <3

I absolutely love these. Thank you for putting this together. I’m going to print these out!
