How to Choose the Perfect Birthday Card
Everyone has birthdays, and whether or not you send a gift or flowers, you should always send a birthday card. There are so many great ones to choose from, and it can be overwhelming! So how do you decide? Here are some tips we think will help:
- First, start out by thinking of who the person is and what he or she is like. Consider things such as whether they are serious or silly, young or old, trendy or traditional. Next, consider what your relationship is: are they family, friend, co-worker? Are you heart-to-heart close, or just acquaintances?
- Next, you can decide on the tone of the card, such as “Funny,” “Heartfelt,” “Cute,” or “Romantic.” You can select a general card, or one that is specifically for the recipient—“Grandma” for example. If you’re very close, such as a parent, child or spouse, try looking at photos of the special times you’ve shared for inspiration. The memories can help you decide on the type of card and what you’d like it to say.
- Now you’re ready to add just the right message inside. Here are some great choices:
May this year be your best ever.
I hope all your birthday dreams and wishes come true.
I hope that for every candle on your cake you get a wonderful surprise.
May your birthday be filled with sunshine and smiles, laughter, love, and cheer.
Hope your birthday blossoms into lots of dreams come true!
The list of card choices is long these days, and while everyone is familiar with paper cards, there are lots of other options, too.
Birthday ecards are a quick and easy way to send your wishes, and Personalized Paper cards add an extra-special touch. You can even shop the card aisle right from your home computer or even find printable birthday cards you can print from home!
The bottom line – a birthday card not only brings happy wishes, but it’s also a reflection of the relationship you have with the receiver. So, by thinking about that first, it will make it much easier to choose the perfect one.
