130+ Best Valentine’s Day Email Subject Lines

Along with Halloween, Black Friday, Christmas and New Year, Valentine’s Day is a huge shopping event. Starting from late January, people start looking for presents for their friends and family, little gifts for colleagues and something extra special for sweethearts.

Obviously, any brand wants to capitalize on this craving and puts a lot of effort into creating their V-Day emails. However, no matter how good your holiday offer and design are, the user first needs to open the email to enjoy them. And they do it very largely because of good email subject lines.

So in this article I’ve picked up the best Valentine’s day email subject lines to help you build a real love story with your subscribers this February.

P.S. If you’re stuck with ideas even after checking the below list, consider using email subject line generators. They won’t give you ready answers but can help to show the direction to move in.

Gift Guides

A gift guide is a tried and tested method of engaging your audience and a ready content idea on its own. You can create gift guides by price, gender, recipient, product category, bestsellers, etc. If applicable to your brand, consider focusing on the holiday-related products like sweets, jewelry, candles, fragrance, romantic getaways, etc.

Holiday Mood

Valentine’s Day isn't about presents only. Spending time with your loved ones isn't less precious. I'd say it's even more appreciated after the Covid-forced lockdowns during which people were deprived of social interaction. Make your Valentine’s email subject lines and messages about having a perfect V-Day experience with close and like-minded people.

Not a Word about Saint Valentine

Not all of your subscribers may go crazy about February 14. Too aggressive holiday marketing, rebellion against imposed steryotypes, bad past relationships, status of a single - these are the reasons people see V-Day as overrated. For them, consider running a different campaign that has more to do with personal contentment rather than with gift giving.

  • 50% OFF Annual Plans Today. Because We Love You;

Emojis

Valentine’s Day email subject lines and emojis seem like a match made in heaven. A picture is often worth a thousand words. That said, consider the effect emojis will have on your audience. Too many generic hearts and kissy faces may turn away potential buyers. Think about the unique message you want to deliver in your Valentine’s Day subject line and find a matching emoji to spruce it up.

  • 💖 Valentine’s Day Plans?? 💖
  • Give the Gift of Gratitude 💛
  • 🔥 A Passion Filled Valentine's 🔥
  • Gifts for all that February brings. 🎂❤🍸
  • ❤️Layered in Love❤️ 
  • The Valentine's Collection is Here! ❌ ⭕️
  • 10% Valentine's Discount Ends Soon ⏲️
  • Need the perfect gift? 💌

Finding the best V-Day email marketing strategy and the most effective Valentine's subject lines for your messages is a challenge only you can tackle. Use the above list to inspire your own Valentine’s Day emails, considering the unique needs and wants of your customers and the nature of your business.
