"It's all about you!" Collage _ If you know the birthday person well then this will be easy! Start collecting images of their favorite things: television shows, favorite band or singers, foods, sports, movies, games, etc... Then put together a collage that celebrates them as a person! If you have a picture of the two of you, then make that the centerpiece of the card so she or he will always remember who made the very special birthday card! This will really show how much time you spend thinking about them and cooking up this homemade birthday card.
Another tip is to try talking cards. The moment you open it, it would say 'Happy Birthday' or some sweet little words. Some times you would come across interesting things like a cat meowing or a dog barking. They are also real fun. These players are battery operated so it is another item to keep in the list. Likewise other interesting idea is to take a musical card. You can choose among the birthday tune and some happy kids' songs. At times, you may also gift a card that plays classic songs.
