In a birthday card for a granddaughter, convey not only your congratulations and birthday greetings but also your heartfelt wishes for her happiness, health and success. In addition, say how special she is to you and express some of the reasons why you love her and are proud of her.
Personalize a birthday card to suit your granddaughter’s age, personality, talents and achievements. If she is a baby, then her parents may preserve the greeting card to show her when she is older. If she is a toddler, she may be happy with colorful images she finds familiar, such as teddy bears, princesses, angels, dolls and hearts. If she is older, perhaps a teenager, add your own sentiments and special terms of endearment even if the birthday card you choose already has a verse or message inscribed in it.
Humor can play an important role in helping you create a memorable birthday card for your granddaughter. You can also take advantage of e-cards or social networking sites to send your personalized greetings. Use the special nicknames that your granddaughter addresses you with to sign the card. You could tell her that she is life’s gift to you and that she gives meaning to your life with her smile, love and care.
