Totally random, I know, but I’m curious.
I love to get my friends funny cards for their birthdays and I love receiving them as well. Sometimes sentimental ones just seem so… cheesy or something. I would rather write a special memory, or a sentiment of my own inside a funny card, rather than give a generic one. Ya know, cuz life isn’t necessarily one big Hallmark moment lol. 🙂
What do you all prefer?
My best friend and I usually get each other funny ones..

Unless it’s written by hand, I’m not big on sentimental cards. Sometimes they’re ok, if you know that the person really means those things, and didn’t just pick up a mooshy card by accident. Normally I like a funny or inappropriate card, with drawings or cute things inside.

I don’t have any preference because I appreciate both. Everything has its own time and place.

For friends: funny or blank
For DH: blank with funny or cute picture, or sentimental but with very little text.

@ Melissa – I feel the same for the most part, plus I love to make people laugh 🙂
@ Ember – I do agree with you and I’ve been known to give sentimental cards a few times in my life 😉

I never give sentimental cards, and I’d much rather receive a funny one.

@ egb – Blank so you can write your own stuff inside? Or just so they’ll open it and be like WTH? Heheh.. that could be funny!

I also like giving and receiving cards that have NO connection to the occasion – you know, cards for old ladies, or for little kids. Sometimes the kids cards are the FUNNIEST – a lot of themes like nose picking, farting, you name it. Really mature, i know. the old lady cards tend to have the same kind of vibe, now that i’m thinking about it.

It depends on the person and the occasion! I love to get cards that make my sister’s cry… hehe, and that’s usually for “just because” kind of things – like I enjoy giving everyone cards on Valentine’s Day. 🙂 And for example, I typed up a “card” sort of thing to ask my sister’s to be my bridesmaids… and they both laughed AND cried when reading them!
For FI, it’s usually sentimental. Unless if it’s a card that is about an inside joke of some sort!
For everyone else, usually funny. 🙂

I love funny cards, but I definitely like reading how someone feels for me on paper!
