I love the Assortment Boxes because you have a whole host of cards available and ready to used or mailed out at a moment’s notice. I keep a list of all birthdays and important dates of my immediate and extended family and always still mail out a card for that important milestone.
I also love to mail out Get Well cards to make someone feel better and let them know someone is thinking of them. The Gallery Collection All-Occasion boxes give me the means to handle all those occasions. Don’t you remember when you were little and you received “mail”, how excited you got, before getting mail meant bills.
Keeping the tradition of physical cards alive is a way of getting back to that magical feeling of receiving a birthday wish, a get well sentiment or even just a thinking of you moment. If kids enjoy getting the cards they are more likely to send them out as adults or as teenagers for Thank You cards.
I am a firm believer that every household should have an All Occasion Assortment box in order to never be caught without a card for any occasion. Even blank note cards can get the job done allowing you to use it for any occasion without having to worrying about running out to a stationary store to pick up that special card.
Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, or any special occasion; we find ourselves stressing on what the perfect gift would be. A greeting card assortment box is the answer to alleviate all your worries. Personally, I love to gift things that the person can either use, it’s in the person’s needs, or comes in handy. When my son graduated Kindergarten, I couldn’t think of a gift to give to his teachers other than your boring set of flowers. I decided to gift each of them a greeting card assortment box.
In the following school year, I was able to chat with my son’s kindergarten teacher and was truly pleased to find out how happy she was with her gift. It’s a gift that is not normally thought of, but it comes in handy in that last minute when you’re running out of the door to a celebration and forgot to buy a card. It comes in handy when you want to send a card to a relative or friend that may live far just to wish them well or even to send them sympathy if a tragic event ever occurred. Overall, the greeting card assortment box is a shoe win as a gift to anyone of any age and for any occasion.
When my Dad owned his construction business years ago he was a very considerate boss. Respect was a two way street at his office. He always asked his assistant, my mom, to run to the card store for specialty cards. His always had corporate greeting cards to fit every occasion. He appreciated his employees so much that an anniversary, birthday or any other occasion never went by without him acknowledging that special day in the life of his workers. One day my mom forgot to send a card for a particular birthday to an employee. This was a milestone birthday for this worker and it was important to my dad that he received his card on time. There weren’t any cards on hand in the office so he went himself to a store to pick out a card.
He came across the idea to order boxed greeting cards online. This way he would always have them on hand at the office. This was a good fit for his thinking; he would always be ready with that perfect card to send for any occasion. The companies’ business greeting cards tradition was a welcome practice by all the employees. It gave them a sense of appreciation in more ways than one.
Looking back, I remember a time when I had been the host to a fantastic surprise birthday party. It was a 16th birthday party that took place at my home on a Saturday night in March. There was a lot of thought; preparation and planning that went into organizing the event. I sent out invitations about a month and a half in advance so that everyone could have enough time to plan ahead for the big night. I figured sending out invitations in the form of assorted greeting cards would be the best way for everyone to remember the date and mark it on their calendars.
As the day of the party drew closer, I double checked my list to count how many people were coming so I knew how much food to make and how many beverages were needed. There were 50 people coming. For those 50 people I had ordered 50 boxed greeting cards. On each card I wrote, “Thanks for sharing in my Sweet Sixteenth birthday” and included a picture of my daughter on it.
On the Saturday afternoon of my daughter’s birthday I began to decorate my home. I placed the pink and silver Happy Sweet Sixteenth Birthday banner up in the foyer and scattered the matching pink and silver balloons throughout the foyer, the kitchen and the dining room. I had ordered plenty of coordinating pink and sliver plastic plates, napkins, utensils and cups. Throughout the day I cooked and prepared appetizers, the main course and baked and created a two-tiered chocolate cake! As I finished icing the cake, I placed it on a silver platter on the kitchen table and surrounded the cake with pink and silver photo confetti. On the confetti were pictures of my daughter – just the perfect touch of detail to mark her special day.
At 8pm the guests started arriving and by 8:30pm everyone had arrived and the lights were out. We were ready for my daughter’s arrival. My daughter would be arriving at 8:45 from her dance class and we were all quiet and still ready for her entrance. I was the closest person to the front door and I heard the jingling of her keys as she was preparing to unlock the door. As she opened the door and reached to turn on the light, we shouted out “Surprise!”
