One of the best ways to convey exactly how you feel about someone is through written words. Finding the perfect way to say what you mean - when it comes to love - can be a challenging task for anyone. So, we've gathered some helpful tips. Go ahead; spill your heart onto a piece of paper. Whether through a one-line sentiment, a poem, or some prose - let 'em know how you feel!

Make it personal. Writing a love letter is a dying art. So if you're going to say it - mean it! Express your gratitude for the person being in your life.

People have been writing about love for centuries. Love quotes can capture exactly how you feel about your sweet in just a few words. Make up your own, or borrow a few of these to add to your letter.

Think a letter is too boring? Here are 10 ways to get your message across and have it remembered.

1. Write your message in magnetic letters on their refrigerator.

2. Create a Letter Hunt.
Leave a note on his/her computer telling him/her you have written him/her a love letter, but it has to be found. Give a clue. Clue to clue to clue. Make your lover search for the prize.

3. Send your love roses according to how many letters he/she has in their name.
On each flower, attach a note that uses the letters of their name, as the first letter of the message. For example: "Sean." The first rose could say, “Sometimes I get starry-eyed when I look at you.” The second, “Everything you do makes me happy.” And so on.

4. Book of Love.
Put together a book of ten pages - each page for some unique thing you love about him/her.

5. An audio tape letter.
A cassette tape with your voice on it is an unexpected surprise.

6. Letter a day.
Write your love a letter every day for a week and leave it in a place it will be found.

7. Write your loved one in a different language.
He/she will have to get it translated, which will make their investment in the letter special.

8. Write a ransom note.
Ransom an object of your lover's and leave a note saying you'll return it only after a romantic evening together.

9. Run a bubble bath for your love.
Put a note inside a bottle and leave it floating in the water.

Hide little love notes in your lover's pockets, wallet, bag, or desk for them to find later.
