Who doesn’t love a thoughtful verse written just for them? It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, just something to let them know how important they are to you.
Something to put a smile on their face and let them feel loved will be a hit. Incorporate some inside jokes or fun memories and your favorite qualities about them to give it a personal feel.
- Coupon Book DIY Birthday Cards
Why not give a card that keeps on giving? Make a coupon book card that offers personal favors and services throughout the year.
It could be something like helping plant their garden in May or shoveling the walkway in December. If its a card for a child perhaps you could offer to do a fun activity on each coupon. One could be playing a board game while another is going to the local park for a picnic.
- Electronic Birthday Cards
Many of our connections in the world are in cyberspace these days so you may not have the mailing address to send birthday greetings to. That doesn’t mean you have to skip sending your wishes!
Why not consider a birthday ecard to let them know you care? You can send beautiful or funny sentiments with animation and music or a simple picture and message to mark the day.
