Are you bad at remembering birthdays, anniversaries and other important dates? Well, you’re definitely not alone in that department because most of us are. And it’s not that you don’t care or you’re not very thoughtful, just sometimes life gets in the way and things slip your mind. So to help you out, we’ve put together a few easy tips that will keep you from having to send any embarrassing belated correspondence.
Fill out your calendar – Since it’s the beginning of the new year, it’s time to pencil in those important days on your empty 2014 calendar. While this might be the most common method for keeping track of birthdays and other special dates, it’s not completely foolproof. We suggest utilizing this technique in conjunction with some of our other tips.
Make a birthday and anniversary list – Create a list of birthdays and anniversaries then post it on your refrigerator or on your bedroom mirror so that it’s seen frequently. It will be impossible not to see those dates every day and you’ll always be aware of any upcoming occasions.
Use a reminder service – You may or may not already know this but Treat has a handy-dandy little reminder service that alerts you whenever there is an upcoming birthday, anniversary or other occasion. Simply enter all the details in our event calendar and we’ll email you as it approaches.
Schedule ahead – Go one step further and not only let us remind you about when an event is approaching, but we can even send out the birthday card or anniversary card for you. After you’ve entered all those important dates into our reminder calendar, create a card for each event and we’ll make sure that special person receives it on time. And don’t even worry about running to the store and purchasing a present because we’ll print a gift card of your choice right inside the greeting! Can it get any more convenient than that?
