I buy Christmas, birthday and anniversary cards write in them and hide them in the spare wheel well just in case I forget. Saves
getting caught out, yes I`m a clever dick.

Just make her one John, it's the thought that counts and there's nothing more thoughtful than a homemade card

Mate.... I'm that clued up she even gets one signed from the cats... Xmas/birthday/anniverary cards are non-negotiable... get it right man.... otherwise you'll face a lifetime of a recurring point scoring from her every time you have a row.... make a point in noticing she's had her hair done, even if she hasn't... pre-emptive compliments work.. I ??????

Don't mind buying presents. In fact I like to put a lot of consideration into it, in the hope that I get her something she really likes/wants.
Cards however are a total No No. I refuse to buy them. Didn't help when I found out Bryan Robson owned one of the shops that sold them

Just announce on Facebook to your family and friends that you are not sending cards but instead will be making a charitable donation. Save yourself loads of hassle and a charity gets a bit of cash. Winner winner, Turkey dinner.

Just been reading somthing on the net saying you should not give cards now to save the planet. That sounds good.

I reckon more paper is used in wrapping presents than making cards - perhaps we should ban presents lol
