Did your best friend move away to college? Perhaps they finally landed that dream job and set sail (so to speak) for a place far far away. Maybe your sibling lives in a different state or city. Even if the person you’re missing lives right next door, perhaps you’ve drifted apart the last few weeks — or years. Regardless of how long you’ve been separated — figuratively or literally — you can always reconnect when you’re ready. All you have to do is say the word[s] — I miss you. Telling someone that you’re missing them with I miss you cards is the small gesture that has a big effect. You may not be able to go back to how things were before, but there’s always opportunity to start things anew. Getting a fresh start to any relationship requires someone to reach out.

Yes, even you. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner — what will you be doing for your sweetheart this year? If you’re thinking you’ve got plenty of time, you’d be right. But this doesn’t mean you should be putting off planning for the big day too much longer. This is the perfect time to get started planning to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember. And while there are many unique Valentine’s Day date ideas you could do, one of the oldest and most classic love gestures anyone can do is cook. The way to the heart is pretty much always through the stomach. If you’re about as useful in the kitchen as you are out of it– then making your sweetheart Valentine’s Day dinner will be all that much more special. If you decide to make your valentine a romantic dinner for the big day, your efforts will be exponentially appreciated since it’ll be clear just how *much* effort it took.
The age old question — should you send a thank you card? Better yet, should you send a holiday thank you card? The holidays have come and gone and we’re left standing in the cold holiday-less dust. Winter is still here, but the Christmas tree is not. The remnants of the holidays can still be felt most strongly with the pile of gifts that we were so eager to open just weeks ago. Bringing us back to the question at the heart of this post — should you send a holiday thank you card? And something tells us you probably already know the answer. Sending thank you notes is pretty much always a good idea. If someone did something for you, it never hurts to give them a sincere thank you note. If nothing else, it’ll brighten their day and more than likely surprise them. Thank you cards, however important, are often overlooked and forgotten. If you’re the one who remembers their gesture and actually goes out of your way to give them a holiday thank you card, they’ll no doubt remember that gesture as well. Don’t you want to be remembered?

With more on the way — Christmas is still weeks in the future — it feels like the right time to start thinking up ways to get those cards out from under a pile.

Christmas is coming! Prepare yourself for the cards to start pouring in soon enough. And if you haven’t been keeping up with the family on Instagram — you’re about to be up with the times. Many of your family and friends will likely be sending your Christmas cards showcasing their lovely faces. Some may choose to put a photo of their kids and new borns and while still others will showcase their newest puppies (and we’re so not sorry about that). And while these cards will be as delightful as any — you’d prefer something that requires a little less photo editing. Didn’t take any family photos this year? Or perhaps you’re just not interested in sharing it with the world. Or better yet, there are specific people on your Christmas cards list that you’d rather just send a card without showcasing your family’s photo. Maybe you’d just like a Christmas card with a classic scene. Whatever your reasoning to forego the photo Christmas cards this year and opt for one without photos — we’ve got quite the list for you.
