It's special if it's handwritten
“The word that is heard perishes, but the letter that is written remains.”
In an era of instant gratification where sending text messages and emails are easy options, a handwritten letter stands out as a special gesture. Ever wondered why?
Here are a few reasons why a handwritten letter is the best thing you can give someone.
A letter makes for a special gift
The time and effort that goes into a handwritten letter signifies how important this person is to you. It's almost like having a heart-to-heart conversation, but in writing. It gives your loved one the impression that they are special to you.
It's personal and intimate
When you write a letter to your loved one it often takes them on a nostalgic journey down the memory lane. Mentioning the inside jokes you still laugh at and the special moments that brought you two closer, makes your letter intimate and personal.
A letter is all it takes to make someone's day
Writing a letter is a traditional act of love. Making someone feel special and wanted is the right way of reaffirming your love for them. With a few strokes of your pen you might be able to encourage a loved one, inspire a friend or even kindle a romance.
It gives you enough time to think and re-think
When you write your heart out on a blank sheet of paper, you take some time to frame the right words in your mind. The best thing about a handwritten letter is that it helps you pause long enough to say things that matter making it much more deliberate.
It's a memory to cherish for a lifetime
A handwritten letter is a memorabilia that can be passed down to generations. History has it that a handwritten letter is a tried and true ritual that leaves a lasting impression on your loved ones. A letter is the most beautiful way to tell someone that you love them because it's a remarkable feeling to know that someone has taken the time to sit down and pen those sweet words for you.
There are so many people in your life who deserve something special, more personal and creative. So why not open up and fill their soul with joy and tears of emotion? Be different. Send them a handwritten letter.
