51 Open When Letter Ideas For Significant Others

Open When letters are such a sweet and thoughtful gift to do for your significant other. But if you are wanting to do a lot of them it can be hard to come up with ideas!

So today we are going to talk about 51 Open When Letter ideas that you can write to your significant other to help your relationship!

What is an Open When letter?

It is a letter you write for your significant other that you set a time for them to open! You’ll see examples below but the general idea is that they can only open the letter when the scenario or date on the envelope matches!

I recommend explaining a bit to your partner if they aren’t familiar with these letters! So that they don’t open their “open when” letters on the wrong date or in the wrong scenario.

Is an “open when” letter only for long distance?

I have seen this question a lot online and the answer is no! I definitely think these are so thoughtful to do during a long distance relationship but you don’t HAVE to be in a long distance relationship to do open when letters. They are a sweet gesture and very meaningful.

I have seen brides to do them for the year leading up to their wedding or the first year of marriage and I think those are both amazing ideas!
