Tips To Make Your Nephew’s Card Extra Special
There are a few extra steps you can take to ensure your birthday greetings for your nephew are extra special:
- Address the card to your nephew using any nicknames you have for him. This will work especially well if you use a nickname from when he was much younger, as it will make the card more sentimental and nostalgic.
- Similarly, if he has any nicknames for you, you should sign the card off using that nickname.
- Choose a message that you know that he will love, whether it be a great quote, a joke or something very sweet. Make sure that the message you write in his birthday card is one that he will really love and appreciate, and one that will make his day feel just as special as he deserves.
