The possibilities are endless
When it comes to friendship cards, the possibilities are endless. You could send a card with a “blast from the past” photo of when you were both young. How about a “thank you for being you” card or a “congratulations on being an amazing human” card. And, let’s be honest, everyone just loves a sweet picture of a cute animal.
No matter what you decide to send, finding a lovely friendship card in their mailbox sent by someone they love will always be a real treat that will brighten their whole day.
Unleash your inner novelist
Whether you want to be funny or sweet, poetic or cheesy, tear-jerking and sentimental or motivational and empowering, there’s no wrong message to send to a friend.
But if you need some help, here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
Why not borrow a quote or two?
Lost for words? Don’t worry, just use a quote from your favorite show, a famous poet or perhaps someone you both respect and admire. Sometimes the best words to say are borrowed.
