When to Send Cards to Be the Most Thoughtful Member of Your Family & Friend Group

Technology may make our lives easier every day, but that doesn’t mean that we should forget about all of the old ways. Texting, calling, and emailing all have their place in our lives. However, the romance of good old fashioned snail mail just can’t be captured in any other medium.

When it comes to making your favorite people feel loved and special, you can’t go wrong with sending a beautiful greeting card in the mail. Taking the time to select, write, and send a unique card in the mail is a simple but thoughtful gesture that is always appreciated.

Don’t miss an opportunity to show your nearest and dearest just how much they mean to you. Continue reading for our top five most card-worthy occasions to mark on your calendars. We’ve also included our recommendations for beautiful cards that will make anyone smile.

  1. Housewarming

Buying or moving into a new home is always a major life step, and it often doesn’t get the attention it deserves from our family and friends. Despite all of the excitement, moving comes with massive amounts of stress. And when the move is finally over, the people moving are expected to host a housewarming party!

Show the loved ones in your life that you celebrate this major step in their life. Sending a card is especially appreciated if you’re not able (or willing) to help with the move in person.

You may find it challenging to find housewarming cards amongst all of the birthday cards in stores, but we’ve got you covered. Check out these playful, colorful Welcome Gnome Cards. Seeing this little domestic gnome and a thoughtful message from you is sure to make the burden of moving feel at least a little lighter.

  1. When A New Baby Joins the Family

A new family member joining the family should always be celebrated to the max! Whether your loved one is welcoming a new child, niece, nephew, or cousin, you can let them know you’re sharing their joy. Maybe if you write a sweet enough message, you’ll finally be invited to meet the baby in person.

These sweet Mother Crane and Baby greeting cards honor the beauty of new life and family. While they are appropriate for anyone who has recently welcomed a new family member, new mothers will especially resonate with this heartfelt image. With their beautiful artistry, these cards are guaranteed to stand out in any nursery or mantelpiece.

  1. Birthdays

We all love to send (and receive!) birthday texts and social media shoutouts, but nothing has the same charm as receiving a birthday card in your mailbox! We love sending birthday cards because you can take the time to be more personal and thoughtful in your message–no character limits like texting, and no public pressure like on social media. Your loved one will know that this message is from the heart and just for them.

As an added bonus, cards can highlight their personality like this funky Happy Birthday Chicken Cards. Extra special cards can also be saved in memory boxes to be cherished for years to come. Don’t let your birthday message rot in the digital graveyard–put pen to paper with a lovely birthday card.

  1. Christmas

Mark the most wonderful time of the year with a gorgeous card. While traditionally people send cards filled with family photos, they aren’t a requirement. The photo-averse deserve to share holiday cheer too!

Send your Christmas cheer with this Musical Santa Holiday Card. Christmas may be a centuries-old tradition, but who says that Saint Nick can’t get groovy?

Looking for a full Christmas package, including a gift? Keep the funky Christmas vibes by sending the card with this fun and funky Santa Frog. Christmas cheer has never been more personal or thoughtful!

  1. Just Because

Nothing’s better than getting a card in the mail for no occasion at all. It’s the ultimate way to let someone know that you’re thinking of them. Follow your heart when sending an impromptu greeting card, because there’s really no rules here!

For winter time greetings, this festive Snowman and Mouse Greeting Card works outside of the month of December. For an extra-special “just because” gesture, pair the card with these adorable, handmade snowmen made from blown glass.

Congrats, you are now officially the most thoughtful person in your circle!
