Writing a Thanksgiving Card or Note - Different Ideas

Getting a note or card around Thanksgiving time is a joy! Why not send a note or card at Thanksgiving time to your family or friends to let them know you are thankful for them. They will be delighted.

Whether you have purchased a card from a card store, or have made your own, I hope the ideas here will be a help. Use them as they are for your card, or let them help spur on your own ideas for cards.

There are those out there that love to craft different things. You can make your own gift bags and cards using all kinds of things like rubber stamp images, stickers, buttons, ribbons, etc. The ideas are really limitless!

If you are like me, and time gets away from you, all hope is not lost! You can still send an E-card, or create your own design using clip art and other graphics. One of my favorite sites to get E-Cards from is Hallmark Cards.

Regardless of what you use, the recipient is sure to know you care and are thinking of them. In this world of ever increasing business, and the quick passing of time, its hard to imagine you would ever regret sending a note or a card. Make someone's day today!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I've never sent a Thanksgiving card but after reading your article, I think that's going to change...

Hello Olderbutnotwiser, I think many people have never sent a Thanksgiving card. It almost seems a bit odd, but the idea is a great one I think, and having received one myself, it is very special! I think it is kind of going above and beyond to let people know you care and are thinking about them. I am so glad you might send one now, and thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment.
