If you ask me, greeting cards are not fun to give or receive. The only time any of us really like to get them is when they have money in them. Greeting cards are also expensive with a nice card costing nearly $5 these days for something you know will get tossed in the trash shortly after it’s given.
ThinkGeek has some very awesome greeting cards that I guarantee won’t get thrown away. These cards are mailed in a normal envelope but instead of boring paper inside, the person receives a thin wood board.
The boards have die cut-parts on them that you punch out. All those letters in whatever card you choose then build a tiny little wooden robot. You can get cards that say “Congratulations,” “Happy Birthday,” or “Thank You” for $7.99 each. These are the first cards I’ve seen that I think are worth giving and getting.
