As a kid, we'd (me + my twin sister)show up to birthday parties with a present wrapped in beautiful paper with a gorgeous bow. As the birthday girl/boy would open their gift, we'd explain, "There isn't a card...it's from us." Even though my mom owned a gift shop and sold greeting cards, we were convinced we didn't need a card attached to the gift...a card was just an added expense. True when you have 6 kids invited to birthday parties all of the time, and true when you watch kids toss the card to the side in .2 seconds to get to the gift. Isn't it interesting, that as we get older, the sentiment of the card begins to hold more value than the gift?
Proof: the local Walmart has a huge Hallmark section- taking up 3 whole aisles.
We came to a screeching halt when we saw the sign for 47 cents! Forty-seven cent cards immediately reversed my childhood belief that the card is just an added expense to the gift.Hallmark cards starting at 47 cents, so we stocked up!
With the cards tucked neatly inside a Hallmark Happy Birthday gift bag with tissue paper, we are hoping to brighten a few senior's days.
Who would you send a smile for about a buck??
