Not just on Valentine's Day: Time for compliments
The best ideas for compliments & how to deliver them
"I just wanted to say that you mean the world to me."
A little attention, a spontaneous gesture, or a simple smile - just say thank you and give an extra bit of appreciation! You don't really need a special occasion to do this, because the little gestures and appreciations are often neglected in everyday life. In our culture, we are often rather reserved when it comes to compliments, while in other countries and cultures small compliments are part of small talk. In the USA, for example, compliments are often integrated into the greeting, such as "Hey, I like your glasses!”
In this article, we show you how to give a little love and appreciation to the people who are important to you. Get inspired and give your loved ones a little surprise with compliments that come from the heart!
Small compliments in everyday life – little and often
Compliments about what you appreciate about a person or what you are grateful for are always well received. Tell your loved ones from time to time how much you enjoy spending time with them! As is often the case, little and often makes you a good at complementing. Keep it simple, rather than pompous, as this is the most authentic.
Compliments like that are always well received:
- I'm proud of you.
- You make me happy!
- Without you, everything is only half as much fun.
- I can be myself with you.
- You always make me laugh!
- If I didn't have you...
- Thank you for always being there for me.
Compliments to send
You can also send compliments and messages from far away. For example, print your words on a smart greeting card and surprise someone you may not have seen for a long time with a personal message. Discover the many card sizes and get inspired by the many great design templates! When written down, your compliments will stay with the recipient for a long time to come, and they can keep them at home to look at again and again.
From simple to detailed: Get creative when designing your compliments on Photo Greeting Cards. For your inspiration, we've conjured up some great designs for you to download as templates that you can easily use for your greeting cards.
