Nobody sends greeting cards anymore, and that’s mostly because nowadays everybody prefers to send a message on Facebook, which is kind of sad if you think about it.
Yeah, I know it’s more comfortable to send your Christmas wishes to your grandma from the comfort of your bed/couch/chair from which you haven’t moved all day, but when you put some thought into it, there’s nothing special about it.
You know how when you get a card from your loved ones, you store it somewhere in a box with every other card/letter and other things like that, giving you the possibility of reopening that box and going trough actual memories gathered along the years?
There’s no chance you can do that with a facebook message or comment because let’s be serious, you won’t go trough your messages checking for birthday, holiday or special events wishes and thoughts and most definitely you won’t print them and store them somewhere (that would be weird).
I know some cards can be extremely dull, but there’s a cute alternative you can try now, which will definitely put a huge smile on somebody’s face. And that’s because they come in little matchboxes that hide a secret message inside.
Made by the Vietnamese shop shop3xu, these genius matchboxes are a great alternative to the traditional greeting card.
