Hardcopy Smiles found at Donna’s Hallmark in San Carlos CA
Tis the season for greeting cards! I don’t know about you but writing holiday greeting cards for me is hit and miss. Some years I’m full of holiday spirit and love to write them, then other years I’m full of humbug and it’s more of a holiday chore. Even when I am full of Holiday grumpiness, I do still love receiving them. I love lining them up on my fireplace mantle, it reconnects me to people that I’ve sadly have not reached out as much as I’d like to throughout the year. It brings back memories with those friends.
The key here is that these have to be physical cards and not some eCard. Something you can hold, feel in your hand, placed somewhere where you can see it for days. Not something you glance at and hit the delete button on and it’s forever gone, which means out of sight, out of mind! Hardcopy cards mean more smiles for a longer period of time.
Where to find the Right Card?
So, where to get these little treasures? If you live in San Carlos CA then you’re lucky enough to have Dona’s Hallmark on Laurel Street. Maybe that’s part of the reason San Carlos is known as The City of Good Living? It’s because everyone is so happy to have a Hallmark?
Anyway, that’s where I get my holiday cards and boy do they have a great selection. Of course, greeting cards don’t stop at the holidays, there are birthdays, anniversaries, and various other significant events throughout the year that merit a greeting card! The thing about greeting cards, especially for birthdays and other personal events, is that they must connect to the recipient. This means that you need selection and that’s why you need Dona’s Hallmark in San Carlos where you will find aisles of Birthday cards that really speak to the birthday boy or girl and not just a few crumpled up generic cards missing their envelopes. I know you could probably find as much selection online, but there’s something about scanning the aisles for the right card that seems to enrich the experience, it makes it more fun and meaningful plus you’re supporting a local San Carlos business which is pretty cool.
Party Stuff Central
Dona’s Hallmark also has wrapping paper, holiday ornaments, stationery supplies, picture frames, other party related items and even fun socks, but I’m a huge fan of greeting cards. I love finding just the right one for that special person. As a real estate agent with Vabrato, I really enjoy buying cute cards congratulating my clients on their new home – yes, they got a card for that too!
Happy Holidays and I hope to bump into you at Dona’s Hallmark sometime soon where we can find some hardcopy smiles!
