18 Best Easter Card Ideas to Send to Everyone You Know
As much as you’d love to load up a basket full of chocolate bunnies, Peeps and hand-dyed eggs your kids custom-made for everyone in your extended family…you’re a realist and you know it’s not going to happen. Whether you’re the renowned hostess in your family—everyone looks forward to your decadent Easter brunch or your beloved Easter cupcakes—or you’re the relative who shows up mainly for the food, the pandemic has put a halt to most in-person activities. That doesn’t mean you can’t send everyone you care about a little something in honor of the Easter holiday, however.
Thanks to greeting cards, you can let your presence be felt from a (social) distance. And we’ve found great options for everyone you love, from those hard-to-please teens, to that one artsy friend, as well as the grandparents who you haven’t been able to visit in a year.
