We all know that despite the lovely thought of being sent a birthday card, the card itself can be pretty boring; an endearing image, some heartfelt text and a hand written message inside. Although we appreciate being remembered, more often than not or unless you are a hoarder, these cards are thrown in the bin a week or two after being received. Some thrifty people cut out the images and greetings to make gift tags, but let’s be honest, for most of recycling is putting our glass and plastics into a different coloured bin at the start of the week.
Despite the short life of the birthday card, it is something you cannot decide to give up on. Kids may accept it with glee secretly hoping that you have stashed some money within but then there are older more sentimental people who really appreciate the effort you put in to remembering their birthday year in year out. If you want a card with lasting impact that won’t burn a ridiculous card sized hole in your pocket then you need to get online.
Online shopping is fast taking over from the high street. With its ease of use and the convenience of staying at home, more and more people are opting for the virtual world over the real world. When it comes to personalised birthday banners and gifts, online shopping really comes into its own with something to suit everyone. From high tech gifts for him to pampering gifts for her and a whole selection of personalised birthday cards, you may never set foot on the high street in pursuit of gifts again!
By simply browsing online you will find a wealth of personalised card options. If you are buying for a football fan then why not purchase a card featuring a crowd of supporters in a football stand holding high a banner featuring the birthday boy or girls name and a greeting. Don’t forget you can also type as much as you like on the inside of the card too, so there is plenty of scope for imagination.
Another option is to include a photo of the recipient on the card. For example if he or she is a golf fanatic then why not superimpose their face on a golf ball in flight. They will enjoy the laugh and no doubt will keep the card to show their friends and family. You will find that the more personal you make the gifts or cards, they more likely they are to keep them for longer.
If the birthday boy or girl is away from home and you would like to send a sentimental card then there is the option of filling the card with uploaded images such as family, friends and pets. They will love to see the effort you have put into such a card and will be overjoyed to see that everyone is doing well back home.
