This year will be Reese’s first in a real classroom, so we hit up Target (and loaded this coupon onto my Cartwheel) to grab some fun cards for her classmates as well as some for her favorite ladies: her grandmas (she has four) and her teachers. We went to our favorite spot—Target, of course—to grab everything we needed for an afternoon of crafting. I’m not particularly crafty, so we kept it simple with lots of stickers (these American Greetings pizza + donut ones are my favorite, and I may have grabbed a sheet for myself) and some heart-shaped little happys (what we call small presents) to include—think bath bombs and candy from the Dollar Spot. It’s a really easy and inexpensive way to show someone you care about them.
Reese let me pick out one of her sets of American Greetings cards, but I’m sure you all can guess which ones she picked out (grab yours with this Cartwheel deal). That girl loves pink and puppies. If you’re not as puppy obsessed, they have a bunch of other really cute sets of cards plus tons and tons of individual options. I can’t let Reese go that route, though, or we’ll be in that aisle for a year!
Clearly I’m not into New Year’s resolutions, but I am going to make more of an effort to send cards just because. I have a friend from high school who is so good about this and every time I get a card in the mail, I feel so special. I want to make sure to spread that feeling more and remind people I care about them.
I’m thinking I’ll start making it part of my Target run routine. Or at least I’ll try to remember, although I rarely leave the store with what I came for… I know I’m not alone on that one. I love the idea of swinging by and grabbing one of American Greetings’ fun or sweet or silly cards whenever I’m there and sending it to a friend or family member just to let them know I’m thinking about them. It’s certainly more special than a text.
