10 Ideas for Sending Cards

Do you find yourself stumped for reasons to send cards? This list should get your brain jump-started for great reasons beyond the usual suspects. I've also linked the articles that I pulled a few of these ideas from and would highly recommend checking out their full lists as well.

  1. Check your Facebook Calendar and send your friend or family member a card for their birthday. So much more personal and meaningful than the "wall" post everyone else does. (From the 30 Ideas for Letters to Write post at Green Fingerprint).

  2. Drop a note in the mail that includes a blank card with a stamped, self-addressed envelope or postcard for the recipient to send back. Better yet, leave off the address and encourage them to pay it forward to someone in their address book. (From the 30 Ideas for Letters to Write post at Green Fingerprint).

  3. Love Letters, there's nothing better than a handwritten love letter.

  4. New homes and new jobs are both great ideas and something I never think about.

  5. To send a gorgeous card you found. What better way to tell someone you were thinking of them and share something beautiful to brighten their day. (From 100 Unconventional Reasons to Send a Card at How Life Unfolds).

  6. To share a recipe. If you're a cook and have a friend or family member that is into recipes, share a recipe you think they'll love. (From 100 Unconventional Reasons to Send a Card at How Life Unfolds).

  7. If you have great neighbors, let them know with a card. (From 100 Unconventional Reasons to Send a Card at How Life Unfolds).

  8. Have little ones in your life? How about congratulating them on losing their first tooth. This is such a cute idea for Aunts, Uncles, and Grandparents. (From 100 Unconventional Reasons to Send a Card at How Life Unfolds).

  9. Why not show off your handwriting. Cursive is being taken out of schools and handwriting is becoming overruled by technology. Take a minute to send a card and show off your skills. (From 100 Unconventional Reasons to Send a Card at How Life Unfolds).

  10. Celebrate the seasons. We all know about sending Christmas cards, but what about all the other holidays, or to welcome Fall or say hello to Spring? (From 100 Unconventional Reasons to Send a Card at How Life Unfolds).

Of course, there are all the usual suspects that shouldn't be forgotten, but it's the unique and unusual cards that will stand out in people's memories. Don't forget the birthdays, anniversaries, congratulations, weddings, babies, thank yous, get wells, and sympathy cards, but I encourage you to think outside the box and send more cards to the ones that matter in your life.
