Valentine’s Day is probably the absolute worst day to realize you forgot somebody. When you’re out buying gifts for friends, family, or your significant other, trying to balance expenses, and deciding how much meaning to put into each gift, it’s easy for something-or somebody – to slip your mind. It’s almost as bad as Christmas.
Finally, you get home at the end of your shopping day. You expect to put up your feet and relax, and you feel good because this year, you took care of everybody. Unfortunately, that’s just not how it works in real life. Yes, you forgot somebody, and yes, it’s too late to go back…but you’re not totally out of luck.
With internet access, the possibilities are endless. Instead of racing back to the store to purchase the very last card that nobody else wanted, you can choose from pages and pages of Valentines ecards to send to that special someone…you know, the one you forgot all about.
There are many websites to choose from when considering what kind of ecard to send. Each of these sites has their own collection of ecards, so you literally have hundreds of choices, and you can be as picky as you want.
While you’re browsing these sites you may notice that they have you covered for pretty much any occasion. There are birthday ecards as well as ecards for St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, and even Groundhog Day.
Another good thing is that you can choose the amount of feeling you want to convey. There are selections that are more serious, and some that are humorous. You can send an ecard to somebody you are intimate with as well as somebody who you just want to let know you were thinking about them. You won’t even need to look through all of the cards to find the right mood. There are separate categories for humor, friends, family, and sincere.
You can choose Valentines ecards that are animated, or that have music (or both animation and music), or there are ecards that are just pictures. Some of them have jokes, and some of them just have funny animations, and still others have poems or quotes.
You can also customize your ecard, and type your own words on the background of your choice. There are all kinds of Valentine’s Day themes to peruse: flowers, hearts, boxes of chocolate, animals, and even large men dressed as fairies.
The best part about all of this is that these ecards are completely free of charge. All you need is an email address to send them to, and you’re good to go.
Some ecard websites will even donate to charities and organizations if you use their services. One in particular will donate to save a square foot of rainforest for each ecard you send. The people who work for these websites devote a lot of their own time to volunteer work, and are not interested in profits. The only money they care about is the money they are able to donate to important causes.
