Thinking of you week: how you can make someone's day with a card ūüĆą

 

- What is Thinking Of You Week?

 

Thinking Of You Week celebrates the power of greeting cards in creating love and connection. It's the perfect week to send cards to friends, loved ones, colleagues, neighbours, the nice lady from the corner shop - anyone you can think of!

 

Created by the Greeting Card Association (GCA), Thinking Of You Week serves as a reminder of the joy of sending and receiving greeting cards.

 

Thinking Of You Week takes place from the 18th - 24th September 2023. 

 

- The importance of sending cards

 

Did you know that sending cards generates positive feelings and wellbeing? They create not only an emotional connection between the sender and recipient but a physical one too, knowing the card has been touched by both parties.

- What to say in a thinking of you card?

 

Finding the right words to say you're thinking about someone can be hard, especially when you haven't seen them in a while! So, we've compiled a blog dedicated to 'Thinking Of You Messages'.

 

We'll leave you with some ideas below but you can read the full blog here!

  

  • Sometimes a text isn't enough. So here's a cute card just to say hi!¬†
  • Just sliding into your letterbox to say 'I miss you!' Hope all is well :)
  • In the immortal words of¬†Kris Jenner:¬†You're doing amazing sweetie.

 

- What to say in a card when someone's going through a tough time?

 

Thinking Of You Week is the perfect opportunity to check in on loved ones who may be going through a difficult time. A card can be the perfect solution when you're not sure a phone call is appropriate and can really help brighten their day.

 

Here are a few things you can write:

 

  • I just want you to know that I'm here for you, always.
  • I'm here for you. Call me if you need¬†anything.
  • I will always have your back. Give me a ring whenever.
  • I'm always here for a chat, hug, cuppa, anything!¬†
  • This is tough, but you're tougher. You got this.¬†

"Thinking Of You Week is an important event in the calendar as it acts as a reminder to send greeting cards (all year, not just that week) because cards are powerful little things that spread love and positivity better than any electronic communication can."
