My friends and family don't have many winter birthdays, so I went with a generic “get well soon!” card. It's nice to have cards on hand for those last minute events where you need one. In fact, I have a drawer full of them, some of which include timeless messages as “Y2K is almost here!” and “I'm glad to hear you didn't contract SARS.”
