I have been thinking about using low content books as a replacement for greeting cards. I think anyone would be happy to receive a handy notebook or journal that they can actually use instead of a card that just gets shoved into a drawer (or thrown away).
For $5 to $7, which is not out of line for most greeting cards, you can choose from thousands of journals, notebooks, planners and other books that will last and be used.
This seems like a great idea for holidays, back to school, teacher appreciation, birthdays, Father's Day, Mother's Da, gifts for family and friends.
I plan to stop sending greeting cards and start sending greeting gifts!
