We've all been there - picked up the phone or walked into the florist, ordered a beautiful bouquet of flowers and suddenly feel like a deer in headlights when faced with penning a special card message. And we get it - love, loss, celebration - it's all personal and hard to put into words. But...words are important and a sweet, simple, unique card message can really make a difference.
Here are some ideas:
Ways to write about affection:
Pick a lyric from a favorite song: It's no mystery why tunes like You Are the Sunshine of My Life (Stevie Wonder) and You Make Loving Fun (Fleetwood Mac) are timeless hits.
Get specific with what you love about them: Their laugh, ugly slippers, sense of adventure? If you have a cute pet name for each other, this is the time to use it.
Poetry: When in doubt, whip out a short and sweet poem.
Memory: Mention a special memory in a simple and straight forward way like "Thinking of us at the lake last summer...can't wait to do it again."
Humor: Crack a joke. Everyone loves a joke.
Just say it: Penning the classic "I love you" is always perfect.
Ways to write about sympathy: Send kind thoughts by way of condolences, appreciation, or an offer to help. Here is what we mean...
Condolences: A simple way to tell someone you're thinking of them during a hard time. “Remembering your wonderful mother and wishing you comfort.”
Appreciation/Memory: Share a specific trait you loved or memory about the person who has passed.
An offer to help: "Dropping dinner off Tuesday night and thinking of you until then."
