Real Talk—Summer Birthdays Can Be a Bummer, But Here's How to Make Them Fun

Hi, it’s a mom with three kids who have summer birthdays over here. And I can tell you from years of experience trying to plan parties that sometimes, nothing comes together—and it’s sad. When my son turned 5, only two kids showed up to his party. Several friends RSVPd “no” because their families would be away on vacation. Another let me know a last-minute trip had come together so they couldn’t make it. Someone else got a little too loosey-goosey with summer planning and mixed-up dates. She showed up for the party two days later.

For Valentine’s Day, e-cards find a niche where texts won’t do

By many estimates, the greeting card industry is in decline, with sales shrinking and retailers moving to cut shelf space in recent years as birthday wishes and holiday greetings moved to social media and text. But for those looking to send their loved ones something more than a text this Valentine’s Day but worried a paper card is a little too 20th century, consider e-cards, which in recent years have moved beyond the basic GIFs of holidays past, with digital card makers offering customization options, embeddable video, digital gift card options, and even artificial intelligence to help you draft the right sentiment.
