With Thinking of You Week just around the corner I thought it might be helpful to give some ideas of people you could send your 7 cards to.
1 – Your neighbour
Let’s face it you could send all 7 cards to people in your area and light up the whole neighbourhood with smiles. A little card to say, ‘Thanks for being a great neighbour’ would be lovely don’t you think?
2 – A family member
Who is special to you in your family but you never quite tell them often enough, or maybe they’re so special that you can’t tell them too often. How they’ll smile if you pop a card through their door this week.
3 – Work colleague
Who’s having a tough time at work? Who makes the office more fun and bearable and makes coming to work worthwhile? Send them a note to let them know that work wouldn’t be the same without them.
4 – Secret admiree
Who would you like to talk to but can’t quite pluck up the courage to do so? Or maybe you don’t get the chance without someone else around all the time. Why not send a card, they’ll feel very special and it might just break the ice.
5 – Someone bereaved
Who’s lost a loved one recently, or maybe it’s an anniversary of their loved one’s death? A card to let them know they’re thought of and cared for is a nice touch, especially if it’s a bit awkward to bring it up in conversation.
6 – Your bestie
I know you see them all the time, you talk and text on the phone regularly but I bet they’d love a card from you. It would be unexpected and special.
7 – Your postman
Well why not? They deliver all your mail, be nice if they got one to take home with them wouldn’t it?
8 – The Queen
Now Britain’s longest reigning monarch I bet she’d love a card for no other reason than to say ‘thanks, thought you might like this’.
9 – A celebrity
Well, when else would you have the excuse to send a card to George Clooney/Justin Bieber/Rihanna/Shakira?
10 – Neve
And last, but most definitely not least – Elaine at Country House Gift Co is asking if everyone can send 13 year old Neve a Thinking of You card next week. Neve has leukaemia and loves receiving cards, which are really helping to give her a positive boost during her treatment. Please send your card to Neve via Country House Gift Co, 17/19 Woodborough Road, Winscombe, Somerset, BS25 1AB.
The challenge is to send 7 cards over the course of a week, I’ve given you more than 7 possibilities in case some of the ideas don’t apply or appeal to you. Go on – send some smiles!
