19 Delightful Just Because Cards To Brighten Someone’s Day

Wouldn’t you love it if someone sent you a delightful little card just because? No specific occasion, no birthday or holiday… But just because they were thinking of you? How much would that brighten your day? A lot. That’s how much. So why not be that someone?

One of the simplest random acts of kindness to mark off your daily list is to send someone you care about a just because card. No other reason than because you want to brighten someone’s day. That’s reason enough.

Tell them how much you love them or that you appreciate their existence. Express your gratitude towards their typical supportive behavior. Wish them good luck on their big presentation or simply tell them to keep killing it!

Whatever reason you choose — just make it something you can express with sincerity.

You don’t have to make the message long — short and sweet always wins the day. All you need to do is make it sincere. Keep the cheese for your belly and write from the heart. Though cheesy puns can totally come from the heart too.
