New at Thortful – Personalised Cards and Gifts

Thortful have recently added some great new options that make it the perfect site for those last minute cards and gifts. You can choose from 28 of my cute card designs, add a personal message and have it sent directly to the recipient – j0b done!

Even more helpful are the gift options. If you’ve totally forgotten someone’s birthday or just want to cheer up a friend, these can be sent out the same day you order. Who wouldn’t be happy to get chocolate in the post?

My favourite option is including a pair of socks! You can choose from four colourful patterns.

Or turn the design into a notebook so it’s useful too. You can include a message inside the cover so it’s great for exam time or new jobs.


I ordered a card myself last year and can recommend the quality. Read the full review.

Visit my Thortful store to check out all my designs including both familiar favourites and some new variations. Cards cost £2.99 and postage is just 64p in the UK and £1.30 worldwide. Adding socks, chocolate or a notebook still keeps the price under £10.
