  • Decent Birthday cards for men?

    Does anyone have any ideas of anywhere I can find any?
    I've searched ebay, all the card sites I can find.

    I don't want golf/car/snooker/sports related.

    Why are there no simple cards of cards for chocolate or music lovers that don't want card of a specific band?

    Any ideas/reccomendations please? Desperate!

    oh my gosh there are loads of great crafters on here that can make you personalised cards as simple or as ornate as you want - I have had some great ones from Tip Top (Ruth) and can highly recommend her.....as well all the other card makers on here which are fantastic!

        does it have to be handmade. Oxfam have a fabulolus range of greeting cards, suitable for men/women all ages. And obviously you are helping out when you buy tehm too.

          Susie Q made a great one of a hiker a little while back, she makes really different cards too. Tiptop's card a little while ago for someone who was a Cliff Richard fan was excellent as she'd found out the person's favourite things and put them all onto the card too.

            Hey - what do you sell lauraj? Think of the poor card makers before you send everyone to Oxfam to buy them. I know they are a good cause, but ..........

              I can recommend tip top for cards. I get all my special family ones from here. She is excellent and tailors the cards to the recipients likes, tastes, what they look like pretty much anything. I know oxfam is for a good cause but you would never find a card like that in there!!

              Cheers.

                Agree there, it's possibly not the best form to suggest getting a 'bought' card on here, especially on the 'Cards' section where all the card-makers hang out

                I'd suggest taking a look at the members who post on this section as you'll find loads of wonderful handmade cards and if you spot a 'style' you like I'm sure none of the card-makers here would object to you contacting them

                  Men are notoriously hard to cater for, as it does tend to be the same old themes trawled out over & over again.

                  Can you give me an idea of the sort of thing you're looking for. I do some with lovely old fashioned pictures/photos of men in Victorian/Edwardian/1920's dress if that's of any interest to you.

                  Or I recently did a fabric card, with a coffee theme to it, see if I can get a picture for you, I can do something like that again.

                  Let us know what sort of style you want, and I'm sure somebody on here can help you out.

                    i love the fact that this forum doesnt criticise other members for voicing their opinions.

                    Ifor-Jones, I make jewelery. I merely stated Oxfam because the question was asked where was good and I replied. pinkpumps said she was desperate so I thought she might be in a rush and its a bit quicker to get to oxfam then buy a card online if yu are in a rush. Plus I often get cards there as its a worthycause. No disrespect meant to the card makers.

                          I now ask Pagan to make my special cards - she makes a beautiful job and they are personalised and I won't buy family cards from a shop anymore. It really does'nt cost any more and you certainly get value for money.
                          Which reminds me I must get my Christmas order in soon...
