10 unlikely reasons to send someone a card

Society dictates that greeting cards are normally sent during cookie cutter holidays such as birthdays, christmas and anniversaries. 

BUT there are many other reasons to send a card. And sometimes this small act of kindness and thoughtfulness can make the biggest difference to the most important humans in your life.


  1. Your friend missed out on the job they really wanted 
    Disappointment is such a hard feeling to process. So many should have, could have, would have thoughts. Send your friend a card of support to validate and acknowledge their disappointment.

  2. Your mate is always so unlucky in love and you want to remind them that they are an absolute stellar tip top human despite yet another awful Tinder date
    As they say, you gotta kiss a lot of toads before you find your prince (or something like that). But you notice that one of your mates has been kissing a lot of toads lately and it’s really bringing them down. Send them a card to remind them how awesome they are and their bad luck in love is not a reflection of who they are.

  3. You want to surprise your long term partner, just cos 
    For anyone in a long term relationship, it’s very easy to fall into a monotonous predictable routine and lose a little bit of that ‘honeymoon phase’ magic. Bring back some of that magic by surprising your partner with a card and letting them know that you still think they are smoking hot!

  4. Your friend has finally left a toxic relationship and are feeling very lost and uncertain
    It’s been a long time coming and your friend has finally taken their power back and left the dud that they had been dating for a long time. Without bagging their ex, send them a card to let them know just how wonderful you think they are and how you will be there to support them through their breakup.

  5. Your mate has started their own business and they are terrified
    It’s a big thing to start your own business (trust me). There are a lot of highs and lows. Send your friend a card and voice your support for their new venture. Let them know you see their potential to be a huge success. (support them by buying their product or service too ;) )

  6. Your mate just finished a gruelling fitness challenge and you want to congratulate them 
    There’s a challenge for everything these days, whether it is fitness or mindset or financial or something else, there’s something for everyone. And it’s called a ‘challenge’ for a reason. Send a card to your friend who has just completed a challenge to let them know they are incredible and capable of doing hard things.

  7. Your friend’s pet died 
    The death of a pet is absolutely devastating. Losing a faithful furry companion is life changing and something that can take a long time to process. Send a card to show your support to your grieving friend.

  8. Someone who has admitted that they are going through a rough patch in their life
    Sometimes it’s hard to know what to say when you know that someone is having a hard time. Instead of pretending nothing is wrong OR trying to fix their problems by trying to say the right things, send them a card. Acknowledge how they are feeling and let them know that you’re there to support them in any way that you can.

  9. That friend in your life that is always so supportive and always there when you need them.
    Sometimes there’s nothing better than a good appreciation card. Some of us are lucky to have friends that are so consistently good to us. They pick us up from the airport at odd times, always remember important dates, always know the right thing to say. We should take the time to let these people know that we love them and they bring so much light and joy to our lives.

  10. Someone who is feeling lonely
    Loneliness is a horrible and isolating feeling. A simple gesture of letting someone know that you are thinking of them can make them feel a million bucks. Send someone a card to let them know that they are on your mind.
