Make Someone`s Birthday Special with Greeting Cards
Many people choose to celebrate their birthdays in different ways. Some are very excited about birthdays, particularly people who are younger. Some people do not wish to bring a lot of attention to themselves on their birthday. One thing that is common to almost everyone is that people enjoy receiving thoughtful gifts and greeting cards on their birthday.
If it has ever happened to you, or you have known somebody who is expecting well wishers, gifts or greeting cards for their birthday and have not received them you will know it is not a good feeling. Sometimes the expectation can set people up for a fall when those expectations are not met.
It can be difficult to remember all of the birthdays of people that you care about. You may remember the birthdays of your siblings or parents, but it is quite a feat to remember all of the birthdays for your friends and co-workers. It may help you to have some kind of system so that you do not miss a special birthday.
Even if you just write down all of the birthdays that you do not want to miss on a slip of paper and put it into your purse or wallet this can really help. If you have an e-mail client, PDA or phone that can send you a monthly alert this will remind you to check that slip of paper and send greeting cards or gifts to people who have a birthday in the next month.
One of the nice things about birthdays is that you don’t have to have the card or the gifts arrive on the exact day of the birthday. If you send them a week or two in advance, the sentiment is just a strong and in fact you may save someone the anxiety of the anticipating whether or not they will receive gifts or greeting cards on the birthday.
It is nice to do something different when it comes to sending greeting cards or gifts. You can send them something that is unique to you; it can be a small wish card that they can keep with them all the time, a tarot card that will bring them luck or a small gift that is something they will use in their day to day life and remind them that somebody was thinking of them on their birthday.
If you can think of something like unique gift cards or gifts that can be used for people of different ages and genders it may be wise to stock up on them. You can develop a system where once a month you shop by pulling out your slip of paper with the upcoming birthdays on it. This way you will keep a good balance of different cards in stock.
The small amount of time and money that you spend to send greeting cards and gifts will pay off huge dividends for you. Not only does giving make you feel good, but do not be surprised if you start receiving more greeting cards and tokens of affection on your birthday from people who remember how you made them feel.
