Get Well Card Messages & Wishes

Updated on January 8, 2015

Who doesn’t enjoy receiving greeting cards? Especially when we are sick. There’s nothing quite like receiving a card with nice get well card messages to put a big smile on that face that’s likely been coughing a ton!


Get Well Card Messages

It’s easy to go to the store and find a nice card, but if you take the time to make your own and write very personalized get well card messages, it is sure to put an even bigger smile on the face of the ill.

Whether you make your own card, or just buy a blank one at the store to write in your own message, so as long as the message comes from your heart, it will be felt by theirs and be so appreciated!

Sometimes it’s hard to find the right things to write in a card, especially during a time of illness. Take into consideration the recipients personality so as to avoid writing something that will offend them. If you need a few examples, here’s some get well card messages for you!


Be sure that the recipient has a good sense of humor. Proceed with caution!

  • Stay AWAY from the light! I repeat, stay AWAY from the light! Get well soon!

  • I heard you were under the weather, as long as you don’t go over the rainbow, we’re okay. I hope you feel better!

  • Get well soon because your cough sounds so gross! Sincerely, your loving sister.

  • Well, at least it’s not Ebola! Get well soon!

  • You said you needed a break, well, be careful what you ask for next time! Get well!

  • Don’t get well soon, get well NOW!

  • I heard you caught a bug! Can I squish it? Get well soon!

This is the safest kind of message to write in a get well card. You can’t possibly get offended by nice words!

  • Sending well wishes and happy thoughts your way! Get well soon.

  • I was told you are under the weather. I’m here if you need me. Get well!
