If you’ve ever had a person that you care about ever forget or neglect your birthday, you know how bad it can feel. Of course, most of us don’t expect presents, but a card is nice! Having experienced this before, you probably won’t want to do the same to others. So, you need to make sure that you do some work to make this easier easier for you.
Thanks to modern technology, remembering someone’s birthday is no longer a problem. Most social media networks will let people submit their birthday. This allows the website to show their friends when it’s getting close. Websites like Facebook will even give you reminders, of you set them up. And, because everyone is on these sites, it’s easy to make sure that you always know who’s birthdays are coming up. Make sure that anyone who you want to give to is on the websites that you use. Otherwise, you could forget birthdays because you’re relying too heavily on being told when it is. Keeping an eye on social media could also warn you about other events coming up in people’s lives.
But, remembering people’s special days is just the start of it. Next, you need to find the time to actually buy and send out the cards and gifts. Thankfully, there’s some services that can help you here. Hybrid mail software can help you to create and send cards, without ever having to make contact with them. Instead of buying a card and sending you; you design the card and have it sent by someone else. This takes just a few minutes, so it’s perfect in a pinch. And, as long as you know at least 3 days in advance, most companies can get a card delivered on time. This is perfect if you only remember a birthday last minute.
Some people need to get more than a card, though. This is where things can get harder. Sending larger mail means that you have to visit a post office. And, these places are usually very busy. They also have weird opening times, that don’t work with most people’s lives. Thankfully, websites like Amazon have gift wrapping services. This means that you can buy an item, have it wrapped, and it will be sent without any purchase details. Or, if you need something more personal, websites like Cadbury’s offer ways to customise boxes of chocolates, which are sent to the receiver in a similar way. These options guarantee that your gifts get there on time. In most cases, you can even choose a specific delivery day. If their birthday, is on a mail day, this is absolutely perfect. It can be a great way to surprise someone when they think you’ve forgotten!
Hopefully, this will inspire you to make the leap and start remembering all of those birthdays. This can save some very embarrassing conversations. And, it can help you to avoid upsetting people. Of course, most people won’t be too bothered if you forget. But, it will probably be remembered. So, it’s worth trying your best.
