National send a card to a friend day

Did you know that every year there is a National Send a Card to a Friend Day?

This falls on the 7th of February each year and is a great way of thanking someone for being such a great friend to you.


Good friends make life so much easier but because they are often ever-present in our lives it is extremely easy to take them for granted with our increasingly busy lives. Sending a card is one way to let him or her know that he/she is so highly valued by you and why.

A thank you card doesn’t need to be a novel. It can be short, simple and to the point but written from the heart. Four or five sentences is all you need to write, at the most.

What to Write

If you are struggling with what you should write in a card here is an example that you might like to base your thank you card on:

Dear [Name]

I was just reflecting on our friendship and wanted to let you know how much it means to me. Your thoughtfulness always makes my days a little brighter and problems so much smaller than they really are. You have a great knack for doing or saying exactly the right thing when most needed. I am so lucky that you are so skilled at getting past my imperfections and concentrating on what’s good. I really appreciate you.

I hope I can be just as good a friend to you whenever you need me. I can’t imagine the world without you. I only know it would be a much different, lonelier place without you.

With much love

Include A Quote

Why not include a quote on the inside leaf of the card.  Here are a few examples:

  • The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention ~ Oscar Wilde
  • Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light ~ Helen Keller
  • A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out ~ Walter Winchell
  • One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives ~ Euripides

Personalise It

Find a photo of the two of you and include it on the front of the card.  There are many on-line greeting card companies which have this facility, to incorporate your own photos onto a card, and often the card is posted directly to the recipient making it even easier to send a card.
