Pear Tree Greetings Thank You Cards {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Angela K!}

In my first Pear Tree Greetings giveaway (back in July) I mentioned that I feel like there are just some occasions when pulling out a pen and paper is more appropriate than sending a digital message. Sure, it's not always the easiest thing to do (who has the time?) but it's one thing to send a quick thank you email and it's quite another to sit down and write out a thank you card to mail out.

Which one would you rather receive? Or, the real question, which one would make you feel like the recipient of your gift or action really, truly appreciated it?

With so many occasions in the fall in which a beautiful, handwritten thank you card would be the perfect response (birthdays, holidays, baby showers, weddings, etc) finding a convenient, affordable place to purchase them is a must. Fortunately, Pear Tree Greetings has a wide variety of stylish Thank You Cards that are just the thing to send out to show just how much you care.

From simple, classic designs to modern, graphic art, the Thank You Cards at Pear Tree Greetings come in so many great options that choosing your favorite is the most difficult part about ordering them. The end result will always be high quality, colorful and able to express your gratitude in a way that lets your recipient know that you care and appreciate their thoughtfulness.

In the past when I have received or purchased a mixed set of stationary, I was typically able to sort through and immediately get an idea about which items I planned on sending out first. Similar to choosing sports teams as a kid, there were always those that were left back to be the last picks because, unfortunately, they just weren't as good as the rest.

However, with Pear Tree Greetings, I can't wait to write and send out each of these beautiful cards!

Bright and colorful, I love the crisp, clean design of these cards and how durable and high quality they are. Even though they are from the great line of Christmas Thank You Cards, I could see sending out many of them throughout the year.

One of my favorites, the Wooded Silent Night card comes in more than 30 different colors and can be personalized with whatever name, phrase or wording that you would like. Just look how pretty those trees are! Also great for winter, the Evergreen Treasures card has such great sketched details in the pinecones that it is almost a work of art all in a 3.5" x 6.25" package.

When it comes to sending out a card to express your thanks, Pear Tree Greetings has something for everyone. And, in addition to their reasonable prices and unique, bright styles, you can customize them to fit your family or need for any occasion, event or just to have handy when it comes time to send out a card.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will get to be their own Thank You Card designer at Pear Tree Greetings, because...

One lucky person will win a set* of Thank You Cards from Pear Tree Greetings!

*Up to 16 cards for any occasion.

the best thank you I received was during my husband's first deployment right after we were married someone wrote me a note thanking me for my service. I still have that note almost 8 years later and I still look to it for strength when murphy's law strikes.
