More and more businesses and individuals are sending out “Happy Thanksgiving” cards instead of the traditional Christmas or Holiday cards. Personally, I think it is a great idea. You get these cards out before the hectic season and the thousands of other cards. Your card will be noticed and remembered. Now let’s make sure it is being remembered because of the special sentiments you write on the inside.

When writing your Thanksgiving cards, you should keep in mind that this is a time for giving thanks. Whether you decide to keep it lighthearted or sentimental, let your note be simple and direct. Use certain key words such as grateful, blessed and lucky to describe your connection.

Other key things to express when writing in your Thanksgiving card should include how much you appreciate them and how important they are in your life. You can mention that you don’t know what you would do without them and how much they have bettered your world.

If it is personal, being specific is also a great touch. Let them know exactly what you are thankful for. Is it the time you spend together, their friendship? If it is a business to their employees, let them you appreciate their hard work and effort in making your company successful. If it from a business to a customer, thank them for their business.

Whatever you decide to write in your Thanksgiving card, be sure to include words of the season and a hope of goodness throughout the Holidays and the New Year.

I have only received a couple of Thanksgiving cards across the years. I remember feeling excited in anticipation of the coming festivities. I was also quite touched that someone took the time to send me a cheery note. The image on the front of the card brought back found memories of many past get together with family and friends. I have not forgotten these dear friends and its inspired me to send a few cards of my own.

I was thinking of sending Thanksgiving cards this year. I like the idea of sending holiday cheer early. Thanksgiving is also my favorite holiday.

Thanksgiving cards – such a good idea! Everyone sends them out for Christmas so your card would stand out and most people celebrate Thanksgiving so it would be more inclusive.

Since receiving a Thanksgiving card is something that is pretty rare, I would think that the surprise of it all would make the receiving of it very special, a big plus for the sender, especially if the card emanates from a business. Being remembered can potentially help business and, hence, increase profits!

I’ve never thought about sending a Thanksgiving card and really personalizing it by telling that person you’re sending it to how much they mean to you. Thanksgiving is the perfect time to express your gratitude. Great idea!

Saying what we’re thankful for at the dinner table on Thanksgiving is a tradition in my family. I have never given or received a card, though! I would love to, and after reading this, 2016 will be the first year I do so. Great tips!

I have never received a Thanksgiving Day card but I think it’s a great idea for businesses to show gratitude to their customers and show how thankful they are for their business. What a great idea!
