Staying in touch can be as fun as you want to make it.
With the assortment of themed stationery, quirky note cards and personalized invitations to match every occasion imaginable, keeping tabs on family and friends has never been easier.
For anyone who still loves to sit down and write a note, you can choose the color or themed stationery that complements your personality. For the more digital personality, have fun personalizing your correspondence with photos, designs, or your own verses.
Here are five online stores that offer fun solutions and ways to stay in touch.
Personalized greeting cards
Buy in bulk
Buy in bulk and has every card for any occasion that comes your way. Start off with choosing your quantity, size, paper, and envelope. Then create your own personalized verse for a truly custom card. Someone in your family have a birthday coming up and can never find a store bought card with a verse you care for? (We can all do better, right?) Show your clever wit and let Aunt Martha know you are thinking of her.
Delicious gifts baskets
For holidays, birthdays or just because
Let your loved ones know that you’re on their mind with something everyone loves: delicious foods, tempting treats and rich indulgences, all wrapped up in a pretty gift basket. That’s where a gift basket master comes in. They offer hundreds of ways to wish a happy birthday, happy anniversary, congratulations or just I’m thinking about you. Choose baskets filled with chocolates, coffees, snacks or cheeses, or even goodies for the four-legged family members.
Design a calendar
Make each month special
Not just for business, but for personal correspondence as well. Look for templates allowing you to choose your own photos for memo pads, note cards or mom’s “To Do” list. However, if you want to remind family members or friends of all the good times you had together; send a calendar with customized photos for each month of the year. Whether you choose a photo of the family dog or a picture of the latest addition to your growing family, a calendar with personal images is a great way to share with family or friends month after month.
Don’t just disappear
Have neighbors and friends who promised they would write when you moved to a new home? Take the initiative to keep in touch by sending personalized cards customized with your new address. Let everyone know where you are so they don’t have to track you down.
Don’t let the name fool you… a wedding store is far more than just wedding invitations. They also do wonderful party invitations, thank you notes, change of address notices and personalized stationery.
The sweetest way to stay in touch!
The best confection store knows that chocolate trumps even the cutest hand-written note. In fact, the only thing better than a gift basket filled with their rich candy is a gift basket AND a letter on adorable stationery!
The best thing about chocolate is that it’s good for all seasons and every ocassion. An engagement? Send chocolate! Christmas or Easter? Yup…more chocolate. Even without a special holiday or event, fine chocolate is and always will be one of the very best ways to stay in touch, whether you’re across town or across the globe.
