Have you ever felt it's boring to use the same letter endings or letter closings over and over again? Sometimes, a good, flippant closure does not come naturally, so it's always useful to have a list of possibilities at your fingertips.
Informal Letter Endings
Letter endings that I think are friendly and less formal - something I would use to close a letter to a friend:
- Always in my thoughts,
- As always, with affection,
- Be well,
- God Bless,
- Peace, Love & Happiness,
- Rock on,
- Season's blessings,
- See ya,
- Take care,
Formal Letter Endings
Some of the letter endings that I consider formal and less friendly. They are good for closing business letters:
- Best Regards,
- Best Wishes,
- I look forward to hearing from you soon,
- Kind Regards,
- More Shortly,
- Yours Faithfully,
- Yours Sincerely,
Love Letter Closings
Letter closings that are good at the end of love letters or letters sent to a loved one:
- Eternally Yours,
- Kiss ya,
- Hug ya,
- Love you so much,
- Love always,
- Lustfully yours,
- Missing you already,
- Missing you every moment,
- My heart belongs to you always,
- Sending you all my love,
- Soon to be your wife,
- LYLC = love ya like crazy,
- Hugs, kisses, and gropes,
- I could eat you!
- Bjocas (kisses)
Funny Letter Closings
Letter closings that are funny or a bit unusual:
- May the Force be with you,
- Yours 'til the cat meows,
- Rock on,
- Hugs and pogo sticks,
- Hugs, kisses, and broken fingers,
- Keep your stick on the ice,
- Shine on,
- May I always live to serve you and your crown,
- Yours til the cow moooooooss,
- Forever and always or is it?
- Your Majesties exiled servant,
- Au revoir
- Go with God
- Vive la revolution!
- Did you fart?
- Don't sweat the petty things, just pet the sweaty things
- See you in the inbox,
- Happiness is a choice,
- Take care, comb your hair,
- Fica bem (live long and prosper)
- saudades (I miss you.)
- Peace, love, and vitamin c,
- Plant you now, dig you later,
- Yours till the amusement parks,
- With trepidation,
- Go forth and multiply,
- Till death do us part,
- OMG the dogs on fire,
- Your pet,
- Only you can prevent forest fires,
- Catch you on the next bounce,
- I'll leave you to it,

These are great creative letter salutations. I wish I had them when I wrote letters.

I have also used "Your Dearest PIC, aka partner in crime, or what about "God save the Queen"

Cindy Letchworth from Midwest, U.S.A. on August 12, 2011:
I love your funny closings...especially the one that says OMG the dogs on fire...very clever! I have a co-worker who always says Rock On...she would like that one.

If you think I'll respond to this you're mistaking me for a nice guy.
Selina Kyle on February 08, 2011:

Haunty (author) from Hungary on February 08, 2011:
Someone once said it's nice to say something in response to each comment that you get. This is my best performing hub. Receives 1/3 of all my page views. Sorry, if you are not interested. ;)

Audrey Kirchner from Washington on February 16, 2010:
Very cute - I would probably add 'screw you' depending on my mood or who the letter was going to - okay - probably not but I'd be thinking it! Will have to copy some of those down though for future reference....
Haunty (author) from Hungary on February 16, 2010:
Alison, out of nowhere! Didn't realize you were back. :)
Al Hawkes from Cornwall on February 16, 2010:
This is great, ending a letter always takes some thought.
Did you fart? haha
Haunty (author) from Hungary on February 15, 2010:
Nice to know. :) Thank you very much, missmaudie.
missmaudie from Brittany, France on February 15, 2010:
I'm bookmarking this one Haunty for future reference. Of course living in France I also have the option of cher, chère to start. Want to know what yours sincerely is in French? Thought so - veuillez agréer, Monsieur, Madame, l'expression de mes sentiments distingués. Phew! Living in Brittany I can confuse people with Kenavo the Breton word for goodbye. Kenavo then :)
