The stuff that you will have to write in a birthday postcard will also depend on your relationship with the celebrant.

If you are greeting a happy birthday to a family member, it is very common to wish them good health or that you are in full support of their dreams and no matter what happens in the future you will always be there for them. If you are not very sure on what to write in a birthday postcard for your friend, best friend, girlfriend/boyfriend, or for anyone special in your heart to be general, here are some tips to help you out:

  • If you are writing to a friend whom you are not very close to or who is very far away, you may include how is life in a foreign country, or how are you.
  • If your lover is the celebrant, you can always sincerely express how much you love him/her and that you are in full support of their dreams, no matter how difficult the journey may be. Tell him/her the promises that are meant to fulfilled in the future, that is if you are very certain that your current lover will be the one you are spending the rest of your life with. Fill the postcard with appreciation to him/her and appreciation to life with him/her. Yes, birthday postcards can be love letters as well.

2. Presenting a birthday postcard before a birthday celebrant displays you exerted effort in their special day

The search of the perfect birthday postcard can be quite a challenge. There are birthday postcards where witty captions or inspiring captions are in it. If you are looking for a postcard with a caption that best suits the celebrant, you can always customize or even create a birthday postcard of your own. Exerting effort no matter how insignificant the cause is will make others think that you are sincere in doing such actions, or that you have a heart of a saint. It is only right to exert effort for the special day of someone special to you.

In the traditional days, postcards or greeting cards were even displayed in their houses to show they are famous in town for visitors were always dropping by, or that their wealth ran so vast that they invite anyone in their house for a big celebration even if there are no special occasions to be celebrated. Just to give you an idea, you can actually collect postcards that are sent to you by anyone and have them posted in the walls of your room to create that home-like or rapturous ambiance.

Tips in Choosing the Best Birthday Postcard

It’s no surprise for you to be very wary or careful in choosing the best birthday postcard, considering that you will be handing them to people who mean a lot to you. Well, here are some tips to help you out with it:

  • Choose a birthday postcard with a celebrant’s type of design. There are various designs of birthday postcards. There are vintage, playful, heavily saturated, seemingly hand-painted pictures and more that you can choose from. But, your interest in choosing which you think is the best one should not be the basis of choosing it. It should be the interest of the special someone since you are not celebrating your birthday. Since the taste of people differs from another, you can ask the celebrant days before her birthday what beauty is for her. This, at least, gives you an idea about what the celebrant’s interests are. Although this increases the task in looking for that birthday postcard, at least you know what you’re looking for. The ideal birthday postcard would be the design that best represents him/her as a character and his/her taste.
  • Make use of today’s digital medias. Instead of visiting different stores in your search of a birthday postcard, you can just look it up in the internet. You can even make use of e-cards, since most e-cards have these funny or witty captions that reminds you of a memory with the celebrant.
  • Consider the size of the postcard. You have to consider the length of the message you are going to write because you can only fit so many words in it. If you are going to be wordy about your birthday message, add some stickers, silly pictures in it, the most ideal size of that card would be 6×11 or even bigger.
