It means more when the effort is there

Whether it’s Christmas, Easter, or just an ordinary day, nothing is more exciting than getting a thoughtful reminder from the person that you love. However, you don’t have to go too far to find the perfect way to communicate your thanks, appreciation, or affection. Greeting cards are the best way to surprise someone special to you because they say everything that you feel on a daily basis but probably don’t express too often. What are the best ways to send your greeting cards to family and friends? Read on to find out.

One of the most memorable ways to reach out to loved ones is to send a card that no one else will have. Personalised cards are easy to make, as long as you have a little inspiration and a little time on your hands. You can get any kind of paper, including card stock, recycled paper, or poster board, and then cut it into custom shapes to make one-of-a-kind cards. Add ribbon, paints, and personal photos to make your friends and family feel extra special. And don’t forget to write a heartfelt message.

But what if you don’t have the time or money to gather all of these materials and make them into something great? You can always order personalised cards by choosing from the dozens of templates offered by a greeting card company like Hallmark. These cards are like a blank slate for you, allowing you to choose images that will perfectly match the message that you want to write inside. You can even get them delivered directly to the doorstep of the person whom you want to cheer up.

Nowadays, it is considered old-fashioned by some to send cards through the mail. If you’re more likely to log onto the Facebook than to check your mailbox, that doesn’t mean that you have to give up on greeting cards. E-cards are the perfect way to add some joy to an otherwise boring day at the office or break up monotonous work on the computer for someone that you care about. They’re fast, convenient, and completely customisable, with some of them even allowing you to add music to your animated message. One other plus for sending e-cards is the fact that you’ll know the moment that your recipient opens his or her message via email, meaning that you will never have to wonder if your surprise gift made it to its destination.

However, there are other ways to make a splash with your greeting card, as well. If you feel like a card simply won’t be enough, think of creative pairings to send along with it. For example, you can send a small box of chocolates along with a Valentine’s Day message. Or you could have a custom basket full of personal care items delivered along with a birthday card. When you think about enhancing your greeting card with a unique gift, the possibilities are endless. Just make sure that they have a special meaning to the person you’re sending them to, and you’ll leave a lasting impression for years to come.

It’s easy to “follow” a friend on Twitter or to write on a loved one’s Facebook wall, but these messages can fade away just as quickly as they’re transmitted. Sending a card remains a unique and memorable sentiment that is to be cherished for much longer than it takes to click a button. Your kind words mean more when the effort is there, and a card is a great way to send them.
