What to Write in a Card

If staring at the inside white space of a greeting card makes you a bit panicky, we’re here to encourage you to ‘keep calm and write on.’ Our team of American Greetings writers and editors are here to help you with things to write in a card when the wheels in your head are spinning but you’re going nowhere. We get it. It happens to us, too. (It’s true!) But figuring out what to write in a card can be easier than you think.

Since we’ve been around the block a time or two with figuring out how to write a greeting card, we’ve pulled together some helpful ideas and messages that you can use, or put your own spin on, for birthdays, anniversaries, offering comforting words of sympathy, or saying thanks.

Want to add some humor? We’ll give you some ideas for that, too, so you can share a laugh on their birthday. Have to give your boss or coworker a card? We’ve got your back. We’ll even help you out with what to write in birthday cards for the kiddos. And if it’s love, actually…we’ll help you say what’s in your heart.

“Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought
and the thought has found words.”
