There’s never been a better time to pick up your pen and send somebody a card. As people continue to practice social distancing and limit their interactions with others, there are friends and family members who have gone unseen for much longer than we’d ever hoped. While platforms like Zoom, FaceTime, and Skype have helped people stay connected, there’s still something to be said for the special kind of intimacy found in writing letters and sending cards. Not to mention, it gives you something to do if you’re really bored (and we know that you are.)

Whether there’s a birthday that can’t be celebrated IRL or you just want to offer someone a few words of encouragement, a card is a great way to show someone that you’re still there for them. Plus, there are even cards for those who just want to commiserate together, if that’s more your style.

1. RitzyRose Social Distancing Cards Boxed Set

The messages on these blank cards get to the heart of how isolating social-distancing can be. From the simply put “I Miss Your Face” card to the oh-so-relevant for today option, “I Washed My Hands Before Writing This Card,” the cards in this set will make help you and your friends share a laugh through the struggles, even if you can’t be in the same room.

2. Hill Valley Greetings Sassy Greeting Cards

Say goodbye to formal, boring, congratulations cards. This 48-pack features cards of eight different designs, all of which have a more personal, light-hearted approach to cheering your loved ones on. The whimsically-designed “Celebrate” still has a classic feel, whereas the “Time to Party a.k.a. Eat Cake” and “Yas, Queen,” cards keep things lively until you can celebrate in person.

3. Fun Puns Blank Note Cards

No matter the occasion, this set has a card – and a pun – for you. The cards come in variety packs of ten, and they all showcase bright colors and adorable cartoon critters and foods, like the “shell-shocked” seashell and the “chilly” chili pepper. They’re blank inside, which is perfect for those times when you just want to drop someone a note. We also love that these cards are made from cardstock that has 30% recycled content.

4. GTOTd Thank You Cards

What better way to say “Thank You” than with the Grateful Dead? With bright, tie-dye backgrounds and large dancing bears, these cards offer a vibrant, mood-lifting pop. They come in packs of five, and each card in the pack has a different bear featured on the front. You’ll want to send them to all your fellow dead-heads, and maybe even save one for yourself.
