While we live in this fast-paced instant world of high end technology that feels like it’s taken over our everyday, I still believe that the greeting card and thank you note is a truly effective way of telling someone you really care. We express emotion when writing in a greeting card, and it becomes a moment of affection that you sometimes just can’t express face to face.
We all have busy lives, so in this day and age it’s easier and faster to write a quick email or Facebook message rather than personally handwriting a little something. It takes no time at all to choose the right greeting card, write your message and send it, to really help make someone feel valuable and worthwhile. Let’s face it, gift giving is a part of life, and a handwritten message done the traditional way is a priceless gift.
The only thing that matters is you
What better way to tell someone you care? Especially when there’s a significant occasion coming up, like a birthday or special event. And think about it – there are so many benefits to giving a greeting card or thank you note. Think of how happy it makes the person you’re giving it to. These feelings are so valuable to our mental well-being, and in return, you start to feel great about yourself because of how good you made that special someone feel. Sending or giving a card goes a long way towards preserving a good relationship.
Ah, the joys of snail mail
Compare gifting a greeting card to getting a parcel in the post. There’s no more delight anymore making the daily trip to the letterbox is there? You know all you’re going to find is a stash of bills or worse still, the never-ending pile of advertising that you just end up contributing to the recycling bin. But take a moment to recall all those times you received a letter, or a card from your Nan on your birthday. Did it make you light up the street when you saw your name on the envelope, handwritten? Did you start ripping it open to see the beautiful pictures and message created especially for you? Those feelings never go away, even today, when you get an individualised piece of paper in the snail mail. It symbolises someone is thinking of you, and adds more happiness to life.
No particular reason at all
This might be one of the best reasons to send a greeting card. Even if everything is going wonderfully well in someone’s life, it’s always great to hear from a loved one who says something positive and wishes you well.
Nowadays there is a card for just about every occasion, and every relationship. Each one expresses all the human emotions and allows us to connect on an emotional level with the people who have touched our lives.
