I have a love/kind of not love (hate is too strong a word) relationship with greeting cards. While I do love giving them to family and friends, I have a really hard time picking out the right one. I’m a pretty sentimental person, but I’m not really what you’d call sappy sentimental. Just when I think I’ve found the perfect card, I flip it over to the price and find out that it’s almost as much as the gift I’m giving! When did greeting cards get so expensive?

If you're going to send a greeting card, make it one they'll want to keep forever! Check out 5 of my favorites from Lovepop!

The way I see it, if I’m going to spend more than a few dollars on a card (and let’s be honest, you really can’t find anything great for under $4 these days), I want it to be something that the recipient will actually want to keep for a while. I remember seeing Lovepop on Shark Tank and thought “yeah, I’d actually hang onto those!”
