When someone says “New Year,” a bevy of thoughts may come to mind. You may first envision a gathering of adults with glasses raised celebrating the occasion. Or, you may picture yourself struggling through a spinning class in the middle of February in an attempt to fulfill your New Year’s resolution. The point is that the New Year can mean a lot of different things of a lot of different people. Thus, you should keep this in mind when designing this year’s New Year’s Card and think about the type of New Year's message to send to your loved ones.
No one is saying that you need to overthink your cards. However, you should take a moment to consider the message that you’re sending with it. Keep the following few tips in mind:
• Are you planning a party? Some may view your sending them a New Year’s card as you inviting them to ring in the event at your house. Therefore, be careful in your wording so as not to make it seem as though you want company on the 31st. If you are planning a party, we've included great New Year's Eve party ideas.
• Put some thought into your message. If you are not including a photo, take advantage of the space on your card to give recipients an update on what you and your family accomplished throughout the year. Talk about your spouse finally landing that promotion, or your children’s scholastic and social achievements. If you do include a photo on the card, keep the message short and sweet. Not feeling creative? Just borrow a line from your favorite song or poem.
• Think about your family photo. An easy way to go with your picture is to just include your family’s holiday photo. Another good family photo idea may be to create a collage of photos of the events you experienced throughout the year.
• Don’t go to crazy. The goal here is to send affordable New Year’s cards, not artwork that one will feel obliged to hang on a wall.
Ultimately, one of the main purposes of any card is just to let someone know that you’re thinking about them. With that in mind, take a few extra moments this year to ensure that your New Year’s cards have just the right amount of personal touch. Doing so may help someone special in your life enter the new year with just a little bit more happiness and hope.
