Here at Honest Paper, we sell hundreds of cards, we have so many different beautiful brands but our number one prerequisite when we add cards to the wall is that they MUST be blank on the inside. We figure, what is the point of giving someone a card if it just says “To and from” on the inside? 

I’m sure you can agree that sometimes the words inside the card are the best bit of the whole gift, so today we’re going to give you a few top tips on how to write a meaningful greeting card. 

The very fact that you are going to write in your card is the BEST start, but in case you just never know what to say” here are some ideas to guide you. 


Dear ________,
Then, add the main reason for the card. Eg. Happy Birthday Girl! 
Continue to add some depth… you are such a__________, I am so grateful to know you because________. 
A line of thanks is usually well appreciated. Thank you for always____________
Then a note for the future. I hope this year holds___________
Lots of love from_________

A little dot point list you could refer to is:

  • The main reason for the card 
  • A note of thanks
  • Something you like about them
  • A memory you have with them
  • Something you hope will happen to them
  • A promise or gift of kindness
  • A quote or saying
  • A little drawing or scribble
