Where can you find greeting cards in Singapore for any occasion (with local references, humour and customisation options)?
Nothing says “I’m thinking about you” better than a greeting card, especially in a time where we’ve had to limit social gatherings, travel and extended contact with the ones we love most. But instead of opting for a run-of-the-mill greeting card for your friend’s birthday, parents’ wedding anniversary or your colleague’s new baby, consider one with plenty of personality instead. Where can you get some, you ask? Why, just check out our list outlining where to find the coolest, prettiest greeting cards in Singapore! Some online options allow you to customise your greeting card and you won’t even have to get off the couch to go buy them!
