It is not easy to choose a perfect birthday card for a boy. Picking a good card can show our interest and care about that specific boy in our life, but choosing bad one results with disappointing. If we show a lack of interest for that person he may think that we do not care about him in other things in our relationship and he may think that we did not think seriously about his birthday and best wishes we wrote on the card. Good choice in giving a birthday card means that we know the person we gave a card and really meant what we wrote. There is couple of things we should know before we give a card as a gift.
How old is a boy – you already known that age of the person we give a gift for is a crucial thing for picking the best gift? It is not easy to find a good gift for a young boy, but much heavier is giving a birthday card to a teenager. Whatever you choose, one thing should always be in your mind – there is no universal birthday card for a boy. Things which are interesting for a young child are not interesting at all and can be stupid for a teenager or adult boy. If you are not sure in your choice, ask people in a store or consult people who have children.
Get know who is his favorite player/cartoon/games – it is not too much if you get to know a little person you want to give a gift for. He maybe enjoys in watching some sport and has his favorite player which you do not know that he even exist. Buying a card with popular actor will not help if he does not love to watch movies at all, but his favorite player on the birthday card can be a big plus for you. If he is a young boy or a child, ask his parents what he likes, and for older person ask his friends or recall his habits and interests. Maybe he called you to watch a movie with always the same actors and you never noticed that.
Be careful with funny things – some people love to make jokes and they actually never know that their friends are not like that. So, even you may think that funny card would be the great choice for your friend, think twice before you actually buy it. Some people can find very disappointing the fact that their friends do not know anything about them, so buying a funny card can be even abusively forcing to accept something they do not understand or like. If you are a girl, on the other hand, boy can have very weird ideas with the jokes which you have not realize at first place. Funny cards leave for really close friends and only in special occasions. Birthday cards usually are not funny or with jokes.
Do not save compliments – everybody loves to get compliments and not only for a birthday. Birthday cards can be a great opportunity not just to show to your friend or boyfriend that you know how good he is, but sometimes can show that you really know what he does in his life. He is maybe a great football player, but he never realized that you know that. Make sure that you are serious with those compliments and that you will be able to confirm that in real life, too.
The point of his talents and interests – like we said above people love when their friends or partners know their interests and what they do in their spare time. Do no save compliments in that case, too. Show him that you know and understand their feelings and talents; even you are not really interested in that area. You may be the worst fisherman, who not even like that sport, but if your friend loves that, you can show that you understand him, at least in birthday card note.
Do not forget best wishes – even the occasion is birthday, your friend always need best wishes from you. Make sure that you know his plans and expectations in the future and wish him exactly what he wants.
Every birthday is an opportunity to show to our closest people that we care about them and love them. If the birthday card must be a piece of paper where we can show them that – then let it to be. Whatever you need to say to your friend, always keep in mind love and respect you have about him and you will not make a mistake.
