Quirky cards that are ideal for quirky festivities
Whether it being for Christmas, a birthday or pancake day we all love an excuse to celebrate and spoil our loved ones. We celebrate new homes, new arrivals to the family, anniversaries and those BIG birthdays choosing to ignore the number! So why stop there? From your pet’s milestone achievements, to your friend’s end-of-boxset triumphs, we think that there should be a card for every occasion, no matter how unusual.
Throw a party for your pet
Believe it or not it’s now considered socially acceptable, if not admired, to have a party for your pet! Many still roll their eyes at the thought of a poodle in a party hat, but we want to see more of our pet’s getting the celebration they deserve! These are our furry friends after all, who are ecstatic to greet us at the door after a long day at work, they bring us comfort in times of stress, and they always appreciate the food we put in front of them at mealtimes. Our pets see us through thick and thin, so we think it’s only right to celebrate them once in a while! Pet’s aren’t just our furry companions and friends; they are a huge part of the family!
By wrapping up a chew and creating your pet a card using greeting card manufacturers, you can throw a mini celebration for your pets birthday and make their day a one to remember. Or perhaps you could throw your cat a birthday paw-ty? Too much? There’s no such thing.
It’s quite possible to accidentally forget your pet’s birthday, but instead of feeling bad why not celebrate their ‘adoptaversary’ instead? An entire day revolved around celebrating being brought together. And if you’re still looking for inspiration, take it one step further with ‘Happy Meow Year for Cats’ day, ‘officially’ celebrated on the second of January (we promise we won’t judge).

A cinematic Achievement
Running an actual marathon and completing a Netflix one are both achievements worth celebrating. We love a good film or T.V. show and they often bring us all together. Lots of people have recently got into the habit of throwing parties to celebrate season finales or new releases — featuring themed outfits, food, and decorations.
Send a card to your friends inviting them to a blockbuster new release party, or why not throw a season finale party for your favorite TV series? The good thing is these types of celebrations are not restricted to a yearly date.
Choose a cinematic themed birthday card for those movie obsessed family members and friends. It adds something special if a greeting card reflects someone’s specific interests. They will know you’ve really thought about what they love before selecting the card.
Here are a few examples below:
Festive cards for food fans
For all you foodies out there wondering, yes there are cards available to help show your gratitude for a favorite meal or to say a big thank you to a loved one for a food related achievement. You might know someone who has reached a goal in their diet for example, or perhaps they’ve completed Lent or Stoptober. It might just be the 11th May, the very enticing ‘National Eat What You Want’ day. Or maybe you and a friend have a particular type of food that you bond over and want to find a way to celebrate your traditional pizza night or chocolate splurge.

Hurray for ‘Fri-yay’!
Instead of only celebrating annually, why not purchase a weekly ‘Fri-yay’ card to celebrate the weekend that’s about to roll in? After all, everyone else is probably as excited as you are, and a card will only add to the jubilation. We don’t believe in the idea of limiting celebrations, so if there is reason to celebrate each and every week — why not?

Well… why not?
Why not send a completely random and unexpected quirky card or banner out of the blue, just simply because you can! A card sent to a friend for no reason other than them being generally fantastic, will always make them smile. There doesn’t have to be a specific date to celebrate your friends and loved ones. Afterall, they brighten up your life each and every day! Sending a card ‘just because’ will give both the sender and the receiver a positive boost — a random act of kindness like this is the perfect way to let someone know how much they’re appreciated.
Take a look at this small selection of ‘just because’ cards, because… well you can.
So, no matter how mad and quirky the concept is, celebrate with joy and let everyone know what you’re thinking about! Whether you want to use the day to celebrate your dog, your favourite meal, a major T.V moment, a Friday, or your best friend, there is a perfect card out there for you!
