One of the worst tortures known to humanity. What’s your tactic? Friends and sister I get the shittest card possible. Others I now get Star Wars cards and pretend that my son chose them.


#2

Normally go for the smallest (don’t have to write as much shit) and the cheapest (I’m skint).


#3

I can confidently predict that only 15% of DiS users ever buy cards.


#4

I always try go for a joke card no matter what the occasion, and if I can find one that’s slightly offensive as well that is just a bonus.


#5

probably maybe buy about 2 cards a year, if that


#6

Usually buy something pretty cheap and non-soppy. Humorous if possible.

I detest everything about greeting cards. Waste of trees/ink/money. Fucking things.


#7

I just buy a handful of decent ones in Paperchase every now and then, and then have them to hand at home.

Was my Dad’s 60th in November. He made a big fuss about none of us getting him cards / balloons with a big 60 on. So for most of last year, each time I was passing a CardFactory or similar I’d pop in.

He got sixty “Happy 1st Birthday” cards from me.


#9

that’s what my mum does, she’s a stock piler of cards


#10

make you work hard
make you spend hard
make you want all of her love

(hmm)


#11

Saw some cards in Paddington a while back that had gone past risque jokes and innuendo and were just flat out “Happy Birthday you fucking cunt” and similar. I should’ve stocked up.


#12

hmm


#13

M&S do good ones which aren’t all that expensive and are fine for pretty much everyone.

If I could, I would pass a law banning all cards. Waste of paper, load of shite.


#14

Oh yeah, Scribbler do them.


#15

Usually just go with yer man Boofle for most relatives.


#16

If you can sort out the foreigners while you are at it you will have most of the board’s vote.


#17

I like the Tate ones that’re in WH Smith and stuff because I’m a berk


#18

Proper shit they are.


#19

Can be recycled as roaches if they’re not too glittery tbf


#20

At the risk of sounding like an old prude, I thought they were pretty awful tbh.

Though this has just reminded me of the time my brother got my dad a “Best Day in the World” card and then written in NOT THE at the beginning. My dad opened it and was properly like… “Why would you do that?”
