Finding the perfect card to go with your gift

Gift-giving is something we all do at one time or another. It's an act that can be extremely rewarding, but it can also be a lot of pressure! Finding the perfect card to go with your gift isn't always easy, especially when you run out of ideas at the last minute. You want to make sure that you aren't wasting your money on something that is going to be thrown away and forgotten about. So here are some tips for picking up cards for all occasions:


Picking up a card is often the last act of gift giving, the final touch that turns a present into a package, but for many people, it's also the most daunting task. Sure, there are some who see it as an opportunity to score points with their keen wit, but for many folks, it's tough to find just the right thing to say.

Cards are a great way to say thank you, happy birthday and congratulations. They can also be used as a means of expressing love and declaring your affection for someone special.

Whether it's I love you or I'm sorry cards can help you express yourself when words just aren't enough. Cards don't cost much but they do carry the power of emotion along with them making them one of the best gifts out there today!


Use your words

When it comes to picking the perfect card, you want to make sure that it's appropriate for the occasion. If you're celebrating a friend's birthday, try using your words to express how excited you are or why they mean so much to you. If you're sending a thank-you note on behalf of your entire family after someone hosted an awesome holiday party, think about what makes that person special and let that shine through in your message. You never know what someone will appreciate hearing most—it could be something funny or serious! But whatever side of yourself comes out when writing a card is always worth sharing with others in order to get them into the spirit of things too!


Think outside the box

A way to avoid choosing a card that's too generic is to think outside the box. You need to be able to connect with your gift recipient on a deeper level by considering what they might like, not just what everyone else would say is good. To do this, ask yourself questions such as:


What does my friend/family member like?

What are their interests? Do they enjoy art or music? Are they more of an outdoorsy type—or do they prefer being at home watching TV (like me!)?

Has my friend ever mentioned something about his or her favourite movie or song that might give me some clues about what kind of card would suit him best?


A picture is worth a thousand words

Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words. If you want to get creative with your gift card packaging, there are lots of ways to incorporate an image into it. You can choose an image that says something about the person you're giving the present to. For example, if your brother-in-law has always been fascinated by space travel, you could use one of those classic NASA photos from the 1960s as his card. Or maybe his wife gave him a great new tool for gardening and he loves taking care of their flower beds—you could include some shots from their garden with your gift card inside!

A photo doesn't have to just say something about its recipient; it can also be used as a way for people who know each other well (even if they aren't related) to express themselves through art together—whether that's simply showing off how much fun they had over dinner or getting more personal by sharing details about how much they love each other's company at home after work every day.


Keep your cool

  • Don't stress about it.
  • Keep it simple. It's the thought that counts, not the card itself.
  • Don't worry about what other people will think (although if you want to send them a funny card, go for it).
