Best Way To End An Email


We already know this email is informal, as it’s going to be sent to a relative of yours or someone you are close with like a friend or even a loved one.
While this type of sign off will always have a friendly and close tone to it, you need to change it up a bit for the different occasions and for the different levels of closeness you have to the people you are writing to.

For example, you can be more caring and endearing when signing off on an email or letter to your mother, more loving and romantic when saying goodbye to your loved one or more chummy and lighthearted when addressing a friend of yours.
This is the key to writing a great ending to a great text.
