When was the last time you received a message that made you feel appreciated and loved?
When was the last time you sent a message that made someone smile or feel special?
Nowadays, we’re so used to receiving and sending PMs, DMs, emails or text messages. While technology is great at helping us communicate quickly and efficiently, our digital messages often lack a personal touch and most don’t really inspire warm feelings. On the other hand, receiving a greeting card can increase a person’s sense of well-being. Neuroscientist Dr. Lynda Shaw explained that being aware of the time a person spends on a greeting card - choosing one, writing a personalized note, and then posting it - makes the recipient feel that the sender cares about them. This applies to postcards too!
So if you want to send out a greeting card but can’t decide what, here are some of our top choices:
- Funny cards. Send this to a friend with a quirky sense of humor, or a loved one who needs to smile more.
- Greeting cards that celebrate important events. We’ve got cards for birthdays, anniversaries and other special events.
