We all love to find an excuse to celebrate. Whether that being for Christmas to spoil our loved ones or for their birthdays. 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.
Parties for your pet
Yes, you heard correctly, it is now socially acceptable, if not popular, to throw a birthday 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!
Why not have a mini celebration for your pet’s birthday? By using a greeting card supplier to create your puppy a card and wrapping up a chew, you’ll be sure to make your dog’s day special. Or perhaps you could throw your cat a birthday paw-ty? Too much? There’s no such thing
Don’t feel bad for perhaps forgetting your pet’s birthday date, instead celebrate their adoptaversary! Dedicate a day towards celebrating being brought together. And if you’re still looking for inspiration, take it one step further with ‘Happy Mew Year for Cats’ day, ‘officially’ celebrated on the second of January (we promise we won’t judge).
Here are some pet related birthday cards to inspire you for ideas:
A Television triumphs
Whether you’ve run an actual marathon or completed one on Netflix, any achievement is still something to celebrate. 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.
Fancy throwing a season-finale party with your friends? Or celebrating a newly released blockbuster movie with a cinematic themed card (let’s not forget about the surprise tickets!)? regardless of the celebration, it’s one that isn’t restricted by a yearly date.
In contrary to this, choose a cinematic themed birthday card for those who are obsessed with a particular Television show or movie. 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:
Festivities for food fans
Whether you’re looking for an excuse to praise your favourite meal or say thank you to a loved one for a food-related achievement, there are several card options to choose from for all you foodies out there wondering. 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. See
one of our favourite foodie cards below for some inspiration that will get your mouth watering:
Is it ‘Fri-yay’ yet?
When that ‘fri-yay’ feeling begins to dawn over you, why not rejoice over it? Forget annual celebrations make it a weekly one whilst you’re waiting for the weekend to roll in! Why not acknowledge the TGIF feeling with a card? 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 a reason to celebrate each and every week — why not?
Cards that capture that ‘Friday feeling’…
Because why not?
Last but definitely not the least, those random and unexpected quirky celebrations where you can send a card or banner for whatever reason you like. Because… well, why not? 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. After all, 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.

With all that being said, make sure to celebrate with joy no matter what the reason may be! No matter how quirky the concept, everyone loves a day of celebration and 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!
