Have you ever searched high and low for just the right gift for someone but couldn’t find it? I think it’s hardest when you have an idea in your mind but can not figure out where to get it. That’s why a birthday card is always the perfect solution.
You can find a card that is simple and elegant or even just a card that’s blank on the inside and you can write a note that’s personal and from your heart. After all, isn’t that the message you want to convey on a birthday anyway? Sometimes you think the perfect gift will say it all, but nothing replaces a note or sentiment that expresses your best wishes to the birthday guy or gal.
I know that I have a shoebox I’ve kept for years with birthday cards in it and every now and then I run across the box and open it and start to read some of them from years ago. I’m almost certain I can’t say that I can find some of the gifts I received years ago! Reading a birthday card is such a special way of almost hearing the person who sent it to you wishing you a “Happy Birthday” as if they were standing right in front of you. If you try hard enough, you can picture them looking for just the right card that reminds them of you.
I have to say that I think birthday cards are just as important as the birthday gifts because no two will be exactly the same. Oh, you may find the same card and even the same greeting, but the message the sender adds, makes that birthday card one of a kind – just like the person who is receiving it.
