Flatter Dad, the birthday girl, the anniversary couple
A few weeks ago we wrote about Austin-based Weeva, which invites people to share stories and photos about the honoree and then compiles them into a book.
Another option for making someone feel special for Father’s Day, a birthday, a wedding, a new baby, an anniversary or a retirement is the Flatterbox at Flatterbox.com. You chose your occasion, your colors for the cards and then you invite friends to submit a card. It all gets boxed up and sent to the honoree. Boxes start at $69 for 50 cards. If you don’t have time for the sentiments to be collected and printed, you also can order a box of blank cards for people to fill out at an event for $59.
