If you would like to give a special gift this holiday season, write a love letter. If you’re not sure how to write one or have trouble putting your feelings into words, The Art of Manliness has tips that anyone use. As they explain in their post:

And they are preserved and cherished in a way that text messages or email never will be. not only has guidelines for writing a letter but also has a variety of love letters if you need some inspiration. And, if you are a poet, you could add your own poem as part of the letter or you can choose one from Best Poems Encyclopedia.

Happy writing!
