A 5 year anniversary card is a card that is sent on the 5th anniversary of a couple's marriage, or a birth anniversary of a child. The text inside the card can be about anything that is significant to the recipient. It could be about their relationship, their children, and their family, or it could be something simple like how they met.
So what does this text say? Well, typically it begins with a greeting and ends with a simple “thank you”. It also could say something like “To the love that brought me here, it is my pleasure to celebrate your 5th wedding anniversary.” The text in the card does not have to be as long as the recipient prefers. It's the sentiment that counts.
An often overlooked anniversary gift is a 5th wedding anniversary card. People often receive these without really knowing what is in them. The key is to look for signs within the card itself that will clue in the recipient into the fact that they should expect a gift of some sort on this day.
Look at the inside text of the card. Often times in an attempt to make the card seem more sincere the inside text can be vague or fill with words that do not really say much. You want to look for the signs of the happy fifth anniversary. Does the text communicate that the couple loves one another? Do the details of their marriage make the card worthwhile to the receiver?
The time of year that the card is sent can be important as well. If the card is sent out during the Christmas season or at least during the holiday season, the card may not be received as well as a card sent out a few weeks later. Receiving cards during the harsh winter months can be one of the most difficult times of a person's life. Look to give something beautiful and warm to commemorate the occasion. Sending a card in the middle of the cold winter months may even mean that the receiver will keep the card and use it more than once!
Finally, there is one little detail that should be considered before purchasing an anniversary card. What will the recipient be using the card for? Is it for the purpose of buying gifts or is it just to send a message of friendship and love? If the receiver uses the card a lot for gifts than it might not make very good sense to buy them a large card. Buying a small card will have the same meaning and send a very warm and genuine message!
