Finding the right words is not always easy. Every situation is different — and knowing what to say can be difficult. Or maybe you know what to say but are having a hard time deciding how to say it. That’s why so many people love the simplicity of a greeting card: It can help you convey what you may have trouble saying.
But even with a card, don’t you want to include something personal? These suggestions can help you figure out what to say and how to say it… or at least where to look to get you started!
Focus on a childhood memory: This is a great prompt for cards for lifelong friends or family. Recreate a cherished childhood memory for a birthday, encouragement or just-for-fun cards!
Reread your favorite book: Your favorite stories are often full of words of wisdom or funny quotes. Search your favorite books to find a few lines for a card of encouragement, sympathy or humor.
Look at old pictures: A picture is worth a thousand words. Upload your personal photos to convey what you are thinking!
Inside jokes and family sayings: If your family or friends have a particular joke that always gets a laugh, use it! Not only will your words provoke laughter when your loved ones open the card, but it will bring back memories of all the times you’ve laughed together!
Speak from the heart: Sometimes we put too much pressure on what we want to say, when it’s the gesture that will really convey how we feel. Choose a simple, elegant card when you don’t know what to say and write what you feel. It can be short and sweet or long and heartfelt. Your loved one will know you care because you took the time to tell them.
The beauty of sending a greeting card is that you can adapt it to any situation. With SendOutCards you can make your own card for any occasion or choose an existing card to personalize. These tips will help you find just the right words to brighten someone’s day!
