I like shopping for cards, because I like picking out the right card for the right person. I know my family, friends and such and can usually can gage what card fits their personality. I know what will make them laugh, cheer them up, and usually what will fit the moment or occasion. I also like going and picking out a few at a time to stock up ahead of time for birthdays and holidays.Now I do love Hallmark and other well known brands but sometimes I simply can't afford to spend a lot on cards. I'd much rather use more of my money toward a gift to go along with the card. So I go to the Dollar tree and pick up most of my cards there. One of the brands they carry are made by "Tender Thoughts" and they have cards for pretty much every thing. Also, at 2 for a dollar price, I can afford to buy a few here and there to have on hand when I need them.
If you don't already pre-purchase cards for holidays, birthdays, and such, you might want to consider it. It's a great way to be prepared, and save on time, gas money, and running around to pick them up individually. Dollar Tree is a great place to get them too!
