Ideas for People to Send Cards To Today!
The past one to two years have really deviated from what we what consider the norm. We certainly didn’t think we’d still be dealing with the effects of a pandemic after all this time. Yet here we are.
While there’s light at the end of the tunnel, personal communication is still a challenge for many of us. Staying connected with friends, family, and your community remains extremely important, even if we can’t visit in person. Letting someone know you’re thinking about them can go a long way in relieving stress and strengthening relationships.
Therefore, we’re sharing ten reasons to send a card to the people you know.
Reasons to Send a Greeting or Note Card
Following are ten amazing people you can reach out to with a greeting or note card. Sending something as simple as a card is a wonderful way to make someone's week!
A Friend Who's Far from Family
It’s likely a challenge to hop on a plane to visit family and friends who live out of state. Let them know you’re thinking of them — and schedule a phone or video chat! — with a beautiful PLUSH™ note card.
Parents + Grandparents
Nothing brightens a parent or grandparent’s day more than getting mail from you or the grandkids! (Other than an unexpected visit, of course). Your note doesn’t have to be long; something simple and sweet will do the trick just fine. Include a funny story or childhood memory for extra-big smiles.
Your Spouse or Significant Other
Yes! You can totally send a card to someone in your own home. If the past several months have left you both feeling stressed, or even a little distant, a from-the-heart note can go a long way in the healing process.
Elderly Friends + Neighbors
Chances are, things are still just as hard on your elderly friends and neighbors now as they were when COVID first hit. Many still feel uncomfortable going out in public or having visitors over. With a new cold and flu season on the way, a note from you might just add some warmth to their day.
Health Care Workers in Your Life
For many frontline workers, every day still brings fear and uncertainty. And with anticipated winter case surges, spirits are undoubtedly low. Don’t underestimate the power that a few sincere words can have on someone who continues to give so much.
If you’re still working from home, reach out to your work friends with a funny story or memory. Hopefully, it won’t be long before you’re gossiping by the water cooler again.
The school year has been just as stressful and frustrating for our teachers as it has been for students and parents. (Let’s not forget that many teachers are parents as well). A simple note of empathy and thanks to the teacher in your life will mean more than you know.
Your Friends Who Are Still Homeschooling
There is nothing easy about homeschooling, especially when it’s a decision you were forced into. If you have a friend whose kitchen is still a classroom, reach out. Tell them how proud you are that they’re taking on the challenge of keeping their kids educated. Plus remind them that no matter how tough the struggle may seem, that you know they’re killing it.
Friends Who Are New Parents
Being a new parent is hard enough. However, parenting during a pandemic can be downright terrifying. Chances are there are many parents who feel isolated and alone. And when help does arrive, it isn’t without risk. Your note of love and encouragement could serve as the sweet pick-me-up new parents need to get them through the day.
Frontline Workers Who Can't Work from Home
While you might be completely over working from home, you probably have a friend who would kill for the peace of mind that distance working can offer. A note of sympathy and encouragement is just the ticket to get them through a tough week, and hopefully bring a smile to their face.
