Writing a Memorable Message

Now comes the fun part: writing your message! Don’t be afraid to get a little cheesy or sentimental. After all, it’s the thought that counts. If you’re stuck on what to write, a simple “Thinking of you!” will do just fine. 

Here is a list of ideas for what to write in your Thinking of You card:

  • Sending you warm thoughts and good vibes.
  • Thinking of you and hoping this card brings a smile to your day.
  • Grateful for our friendship and sending warm wishes your way.
  • Sending you a mail hug!
  • Thinking of you today.
  • Remember when we [insert memory]? Those moments always bring a smile to my face, just like you do.
  • No special occasion needed to brighten your day. Sending you a little happiness, just because!
  • Hope this brings a smile to your face.
  • Friendship doesn’t need a reason to be celebrated. Grateful for you, just because.
  • Here’s a smile for you, just because.

The most important thing to remember is to HAVE FUN!
