Getting a card in the mail can make someone’s day. Tucked in with all the bills, advertising fliers and worthy causes all asking for your money, a card stands out as a welcome reminder that someone cares. Whether you like to send custom greeting cards or need help finding the right words, there are many options for sending a reminder to a loved one that they are in your thoughts. Here are the top five occasions for sending greeting cards.
Steeped in tradition, sending a Christmas card is an annual ritual that many people around the world enjoy. It’s as much fun to give as it is to receive at this time of year, and that goes double for cards. Along with remembering friends, family and colleagues, don’t forget those who serve you throughout the year, including mail carriers, garbage collectors and more. Custom Christmas cards are a wonderful tradition for many families who include photos to mark the changes the past year has brought.
2. Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is a special time of year for those who share a relationship. Many people still remember their early school days, when everyone in class exchanged cards, as well as their first real Valentine. Today, the day has grown beyond simply recognizing significant others, and many people send cards to grandparents, nieces, nephews and others.
3. Mother’s Day
Even small children recognize the importance of their mother in their lives, and thanking her for all you put her through is something that never grows old. This is the day to remember all the kind and encouraging words she’s spoken, all the special dinners she made, colds she nursed you through and more. She loves and saves the custom greeting cards you send, just as she loves and saves those macaroni necklaces you used to make for her.
4. Father’s Day
Make up for all of those ugly ties, ashtrays and singing fish you’ve given in the past with a heartfelt Father’s Day card for the one who coached your Little League team, laughed at your silly jokes and clapped the loudest and longest at your recitals. It can be hard to talk to some fathers, so let your card speak for you. He can see beyond the funny holiday cards and recognize the effort, as well as the sentiment, that you put into choosing and sending it.
This springtime holiday is a natural fit for cards, whether they are sent with blessings, bunny rabbits or both. A notable religious occasion, Easter is also a fun event for parents and children, who love to color and hunt eggs and bite the ears off chocolate rabbits. All ages love receiving Easter cards, as well as treat-filled baskets, to commemorate this special day.
