When or for whom should we use "Warm Regards" in conclusion?
Where is "Kind Regards" or "Best Regards" applicable?

I don't think there is any standard. So I will just voice my own personal opinion.

Regards,...often used as a standard

Kind regards, Best regards,...can be used as a standard or slightly preferential

Warm regards,...use for those who are close to you...good friends, family, associates

You can also use as a standard....

Yours truly, Sincerely, Yours sincerely

If it is some that is special to you--very close friends, family, or intimate partners


To be honest, people don't really pay much attention to the way a letter is signed UNLESS they notice that you are treating them in a cooler than normal fashion. For example, if always signed your letter to your girlfriend,


but have recently begun to sign your letters with,

Yours truly,

she might wonder why you have gone from being affectionate to being "cold".

For everyday, normal correspondence, you have lots of options to choose from.

Hope that helps.

Thanks a lot, anon.
My boyfriend gave me a Christmas Card signed Best Wishes once. He never made that mistake again!
