7 unique reasons to send a greeting card

Sending a greeting card can be a powerful way to connect with the people in our lives and let them know that we care.

While we often send cards for traditional occasions like birthdays and holidays, there are many other situations where a card can be a meaningful gesture.

Here are some scenarios where sending a card could make a difference:

A friend is going through a health scare
Waiting for health test results can be an incredibly anxiety-provoking experience, often causing more fear and stress than the actual results themselves. Whether they receive good or bad news, the waiting period can be a nerve-wracking time for anyone going through it. Letting them know that you're thinking of them and sending positive vibes their way can make a world of difference in their emotional well-being.

Send them the "It's so unfair" card. 


A friend is celebrating a milestone
Maybe they just ran their first marathon, got promoted at work, or finished a big project they've been working on for years. Whatever the milestone, a card that celebrates their achievement can be a wonderful way to acknowledge their achievement and show them how proud you are.


Send them the "I think you're otterly amazing" card.


A family member is about to get married
Weddings might be all about celebrating love, but often trying to meet everyone’s expectations as you build up to the big day can be one of the most stressful things you ever experience as a couple. While cards at weddings are certainly expected, why not go the extra mile and send a heartfelt note of congratulations in the weeks before the big day? It could be just what the happy couple needs to remind them of exactly why they’re doing this. 

Send them the "It's good to see you thriving" card. 


 A family member is going through a divorce
Divorce can be a difficult and painful experience, and your loved one may be feeling overwhelmed and alone. A card that expresses your love and support can help them feel less isolated and remind them that they have a strong network of people who they can lean upon who care about them.

Send them "I'm ready to chat over a glass (or barrel) of red" card.


A colleague is leaving their job
There’s a reason why people at work feel like family. You don’t just spend lots of time with them, you share experiences with them, you eat with them, you laugh with them, and sometimes you even start businesses with them ;) So when somebody flies the nest, whether it be for a promotion, moving to another city or for retirement, it’s important to acknowledge the value they’ve brought to the business and the contribution they’ve made to your life. A greeting card is a great way to do just this. 

Send them the "you're simply the best" card

A friend is going through a tough time with their mental health
Mental health struggles can be incredibly challenging to navigate, and opening up about them to a friend is a really vulnerable and brave thing to do. Letting someone know that you see their struggle and that they have support can make all the difference. Send a card that lets your friend know you're there for them, no matter what and make the effort to check in with them whenever you can.

Send them the "I'm not good at being fluffy, but I do care" card.

 A neighbour has done something kind for you
Did your neighbour water your plants while you were on holidays or bring over soup when you were sick? Let them know how much you appreciate their kindness with a card that expresses your gratitude.


Send them the "you make the world a happier place" card. 

No matter the occasion, taking the time to send a thoughtful card can help strengthen our relationships and show the people in our lives that we care.
