The romance of a love letter

Valentine's Day

A survey has revealed that 90 per cent of Australians say that writing a love letter by hand is one of the most romantic things you can do.

77 per cent will pen a card to their loved one this Valentine’s Day and 80 per cent have hand written a love letter. The love letter, it seems, is back in fashion. 

What better gift than a beautiful pen to foster the romance of the love letter!

Valentines Day


Pilot Pen Frixion 3 in 1 Wood features a choice of three ink colours, blue, black or red – perfect for penning that romantic Valentine’s Day card. Just click down on the barrel and choose your colour!

As with all Frixion pens, the ink is erasable, so you can rub out any mistakes with the eraser on the end of the pen and start again for perfect work every time.

Frixion 3 in 1 Wood features a metal barrel with coordinating wood grain, topped off with a sleek metal tip and clip. RRP $31.50.


“3 in 1 looks great and feels great – it has a chunky barrel so it’s easy to hold and a fine nib so it helps to makes your writing look tidy and neat and if you make a mistake, you can always start again without anybody ever knowing!” said Ms Barbara Oliver, marketing manager, Pilot Pen Australia.

    love should be celebrated every day,
    that’s all I am going to say.

  12. Kelly R February 13, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    A day where lovers can be reminded why they fell in love, where partners can fall in love all over again & where hopeful souls have an excuse to go out and have a chance to fall in love.

  28. Cindy February 11, 2017 at 1:18 pm

    Forgiving someone who bought you flowers only because they were marked down at Woolworths, it`s the thought that counts afer all.

  29. Kristina S February 11, 2017 at 8:49 am

  40. Ern February 10, 2017 at 12:44 pm

    Valentine’s Day is loads of fun, time to send anonymous VD cards out to unsuspecting friends and revel in their highly amusing reactions!!! Wife + I do it every year, cracks us up and is a huge secret, we never confess.

  41. Diana February 10, 2017 at 12:40 pm

    Valentine’s Day is….an over commercialized crock of shit. A day where florists, chocolatiers and wine makers hear the glorious sounds of cash registers lining their pockets, going ‘cha ching’. The true meaning of the day now long gone, now a day where many feel shamed into partaking, otherwise being told ‘awwww you don’t love me’. This said, when you’re in love, real, true, deep, eternal love, with ‘the one’ and it’s reciprocated, each and every day is filled and fueled by romance, that happens naturally, is more meaningful because it’s not expected. It’s the small things that count, a hand written love note in with your lunch……for no reason at all, only that you’re loved, on each and every level. And I have this, and am eternally thankful for him, for us, for the way we complete each other.

  42. Amy Petersen February 10, 2017 at 5:32 am

    A day to show everyone how much you love them! A small act of kindness to bring a smile to the faces of those special to us!

  43. Lara Daebritz February 9, 2017 at 9:36 pm

  46. Anita A February 8, 2017 at 10:45 pm

    ..a day to be cute and corny without getting embarrassed. Whether it’s a lavish Valentine’s Day card or a sticky note in hubby’s lunch bag, I never pass up the chance to let him know what he means to me.

  47. Josephine Hellings February 8, 2017 at 7:31 pm

    love, chocolates and a romantic movie to watch.

  48. Margaret Hollis February 8, 2017 at 5:49 pm

  58. Bryan Rigby-Roberts February 7, 2017 at 9:53 pm

    …a special time for my wife and I as I proposed on this day back in 2005. Well, I say I proposed on this day, but it was technically the 15th – I’d hidden the ring amongst chocolate so she was so busy eating that she didn’t find the ring until after midnight!

  59. sharyn w February 7, 2017 at 8:12 pm
