Anniversary cards can be an unexpected surprise for your parents, since these celebrations are not as prevalent as major holidays and tend to go unnoticed. But this is also an opportunity to show them how special they are, and how much you appreciate that their marriage has been successful. To give the anniversary card a little something special, slip in a gift. Whether it be movie tickets, a hotel voucher or plane tickets, surprise your parents with something they can share on their special day.

Print a Card

You can download free templates from Avery (see Resources), and open them in Microsoft Word to make professional-looking cards that are still personal. You can decorate them right on the template with pictures and text and then print, fold and send.

Go Online

There are many websites that will let you design and print a card for free. For example, dltk-cards.com has an easy step-by-step method and a lot of different themes to choose from. When you are finished you are taken to a printable screen where you can print as many copies as you like.


Craft stores have an abundance of card-making supplies including nice paper, stencils, cutouts, stamps and embossing supplies. The card can be as creative as you want, or can afford. There are even one-day workshops available to learn new techniques that will make your card shine.

Cards from Kids

Sure, you are your parent's children, but homemade cards from grandchildren are just as special. Kids have a knack for drawing and decorating long forgotten by adults, so break out the glitter and let your kids get messy!
