Use Your Hands

The next time you're in the card aisle, you might be better off going to the nearest arts and crafts store. While it may not be manly to you, it would be quite meaningful to your wife that you made her the card that you're giving her. The best thing about this idea is you get to truly customize the card for her. Few cards will ever fit her perfectly off of the shelf, and no matter how much she likes a card picked off of the shelf at a store, she would prefer a card you made. Yes, it will probably be more expensive then buying a card, because arts and crafts stores are pricey, and yes it will be time consuming, but this is part of what makes it so special.

Get some nice heavy card stock, then go into the scrapbooking aisle and find those puffy stickers, and foam cutouts and whatever else you think she might like and adhere them to the card. Yes, this is journeying into territory that you probably don't often visit, but it will be very special to her.

More Tips: If you are unsure of what to do, or how to make a nice looking card, find an employee at the store and they will probably be a huge wealth of knowledge. They can also make the experience a lot more comfortable for you. I've been to many arts and crafts stores and the employess are generally nice, and they enjoy arts and crafts.
