Saying I Love You with Shakespeare’s Words

'It were as possible for me to say I loved nothing as well as you'

Spoken by Beatrice in Act 4, Scene 1 of Much Ado About Nothing

No one says ‘I love you’ like the characters in Shakespeare’s plays. Shakespeare writes such all-consuming professions of love for his characters that it’s hard not to look to his words when thinking of how to say ‘I love you’ on Valentine’s Day. From his sonnets to his plays, Shakespeare speaks of such depths of being in love that one cannot help but be moved by it.

While most people look immediately to Romeo & Juliet to find inspiration for extraordinary professions of love, we’ve looked outside the famous tragedy to find some truly beautiful quotes to highlight love this Valentine’s Day. Printed on a selection of textiles and even on heart shaped biscuits, this Valentine’s Day there’s more than one way to say ‘I love you’.

We believe that there is nothing more everlasting than the words we give to others, nothing more powerful than the words we utter to each other and the feelings of love they illicit. This year, why don’t you let Shakespeare help you find the perfect words to say, ‘I love you’ by shopping our Valentine's Day gifts.
