Letter Endings, Letter Closings

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,
  • Cheerio,
  • Cheers,
  • Chill,
  • 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,
  • Cordially,
  • I look forward to hearing from you soon,
  • Kind Regards,
  • More Shortly,
  • Truly,
  • 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,
  • Kisses,
  • Hug ya,
  • Love you so much,
  • Love always,
  • Lustfully yours,
  • Xoxo,
  • 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,

Shasta Matova from USA on February 02, 2012:

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

matlock on January 18, 2012:

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

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.

jburley from Florida on March 16, 2011:


Good information. Thanks. I may try to use all of fun ones, depending on the contents and the contact.

Haunty (author) from Hungary on February 09, 2011:

If you think I'll respond to this you're mistaking me for a nice guy.

Selina Kyle on February 08, 2011:

bahaha I think that might have been me.... Now respond to me!

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. ;)

Selina Kyle on February 08, 2011:

I am so ending my next letter in "OMG the dog's on fire..." hahahahahaha love it

Haunty (author) from Hungary on March 11, 2010:

Thank you, MOW! I love to see your avatar on my hub. :)

Justine - I mailed you a minute ago. I'd like you to think about it. Will be back in a few hours.

Justine76 on March 11, 2010:

"May I always live to serve you and your crown"....hmmm, I feel like Ive seen that somewhere before? :) this was way funny, Haunty. Ill have to read it again, i cant pick a favourite.

myownworld from uk on February 21, 2010:

Great hub...! 'Forever and always or is it?...' 'With trepidation' ha ha...these were really interesting. And neat presentation! :)

Haunty (author) from Hungary on February 19, 2010:

akirchner - I am glad that you can use some of them. :)

nadia - It's so good to see you. :) I'm looking forward to reading something from you.

nadiaazhar from kuwait on February 19, 2010:

i enjoy the read:)unconventional letter closings are intresting!!


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:

Hi Haunty,

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 :)
