Greeting Cards, You Gotta Love Them!

Updated on August 2, 2011

Birthdays, Valentine’s, Anniversaries, there is a greeting card for almost every event under the sun. There are stores filled with them. Expensive ones that play music and those that you can record in. Or simple ones that are less expensive. With things being digital now a days, you would think that people would be more into receiving ecards in their email. But I think differently.

When I receive a greeting card in the mail, I am thrilled. Because sending a card out does take planning. The person who is sending the card has to first think and remember the event. This alone is could be stressful sometimes because many of us have like 10 birthdays and 5 anniversaries all in the same month! This is why I think the less expensive cards or even creating your own cards could be a way to go to save money.

So then it’s planning the trip to the card store. Once entering you begin to walk up and down the aisles looking for the category that you need. Then you may find yourself just standing there, starring at all cards to choose from. Picking up a few, looking at them, reading the inside greeting. Thinking to your self, ‘Is this what I want to say to this person’. It’s a lot to think about.

It turns out that this greeting card thing is big deal. This card that you choose is representing your feelings for this event and person or persons involved.

So, when I receive a card in the mail. I am appreciative. I don’t take it for granted. I acknowledge all the time that person put into purchasing the card, and of course signing it.

You know, like they say, it is the little things in life that make you happy. I believe that people want to be acknowledged sometimes in simple ways. This is definitely a way to thank someone, celebrate someone, or just show someone that, yes you are important to me.

I know that sending a greeting via email could be just as thoughtful. It is easier to just click your generosity away. Maybe I’m just old fashioned because I think that anyone that walks to their mailbox and receives a greeting card addressed to them gets an instant smile on their face.

      I know your right! It is becoming rarer and rarer. Who knows maybe 50 years from now greeting cards will be things of the past and ancient. Have a great day Phil!

      I agree that receiving something like this in the mail does show that the person sending it took the time to do it, which shows a level of caring or consideration that is becoming rarer and rarer.
