There are so many reasons to send a card to someone. Greeting cards are kind of magical. They’re just a page of card stock folded in half with some ink on… But they can do amazing things and actually change the way people feel!
I love creating greeting cards knowing that they’ll be used to deepen friendships and make people smile. Sending a card lets your favourite people know that you care enough about them enough to make a bit of effort. And it’s a physical reminder that you’re thinking about them. Here’s a list of 5 reasons to send a greeting card…
Celebrate a special occasion
Okay, so this is the most obvious one, and the reason most of us send cards in the first place. Sending a birthday or anniversary card lets the recipient know that you remembered that this day is a big deal for them and you’re celebrating them and their special day.
Send a card to wish someone luck
Getting a good luck card definitely gives us a little boost of confidence before we tackle something that’s a bit daunting. Whether they’re going for a job interview, taking a test or exam, or attempting a physical challenge, sending someone a good luck card will be a little reminder that you believe in them.
And to say well done
A card is also a great way to say well done when someone has already achieved something. Whether that’s graduating, having a baby, passing a driving test, finishing a marathon, getting a new job, or any other accomplishment, you’re letting that person know that you think they’re brilliant!
Send a card to stay in touch
Sometimes a card can be the best way to just say hi when you haven’t seen someone for a while. While technology makes it easy to text, email or call someone pretty much anywhere in the world, sending a card is a more permanent reminder that you’re thinking about someone. You’ve shown you care enough to choose a card, buy it, write in it and post it off to them!
Cheer someone up with a card
It’s very easy to send off a text message… But just think how you feel when physical post arrives through your letterbox. We’re accustomed to the noise of digital communication so getting something nice in the mail still gives us a little bit of a thrill. Sending a greeting card is a fantastic way to cheer someone up when they’re having a tough time. They have the excitement of receiving mail. And they also have something real they can put on their desk or shelf to remind them that you’re there for them.
These are just a few of the zillions of reasons to send someone a greeting card… They’re a relatively inexpensive way to make someone feel good, to connect with them and to cement your friendship or love, for whatever reason. Send one of your favourite people a card today and make them smile 🥰
