CBS Mornings Host Tony Dokoupil Shares The Only Three Rules To Writing The Perfect Love Letter

This article was produced in partnership with Pandora Jewelry.

Fact: Any partner who’s ever told you they were fine with a romantic love letter in lieu of a gift was lying. Also a fact: A romantic note paired with the perfect gift will win you points that will last you into the New Year and beyond. Such a note shouldn’t recount your entire epic love story — there’s only so much paper real estate on fine stationery — so a short and sweet encapsulation of the unique love you’ve found is all you need. In Found Love: Gift Notes, we asked fathers to share a quick tip on how to say a lot to the mother of their children in only a few words.

You Found Love, Now Find the Perfect Gift

Writing a great love note is one way to express how you feel about your partner—but don’t stop there. Giving the perfect gift is another way to demonstrate you know and appreciate them. Personal and beautiful Pandora jewelry will remind them of your love every time they wear it.

I have three rules for a successful love letter. First, get a working pen. Second, search for a new way to say I love you. Third, know that you will fail but that trying is succeeding. You can’t explain love. You can only demonstrate it—which is the point of a love letter. For example:

Dear Katy,

The only thing I’d ever dream of doing without you is going on a cruise because I know you hate the idea of a cruise. But honey? I don’t like a Disney Magic Stateroom without you.
