Online Thanksgiving Cards, Done Right
eCards were one of the first viral hits of the 1990s internet. Unfortunately, they also became synonymous with cheap, ad-laden sites flashing outdated stock images. If you were wondering “How can I show someone I care on Thanksgiving…but not really?” – eCards were the unfortunate, but true, digital answer to your question.
But not anymore.
Forget about the corny jokes and annoying popups. With Kudoboard, you can create personalized, online Thanksgiving cards with pictures, videos, and notes. You can even invite others to contribute and turn it into a group card.

The Thanksgiving Day holiday, though quite controversial and rich with problematic history, is thought to be a celebration of the feast shared in Plymouth between the Wampanoag people and the Pilgrims after much loss and strife. The celebrations held today center around gratitude for the goodness in life despite all of our hardships. Things like family gatherings and Thanksgiving cards are used to take a pause from the everyday chaos and remember what is most important to us.
Thanksgiving cards are a tangible way to show love and gratitude to your family and friends over the holiday season. This time of year is largely focused on acknowledging what you are thankful for and for many of us, our friends and family members are at the top of that list.
Thanksgiving ecard from Kudoboard is a digital way, as an individual or group, to express love and gratitude to the people in your life during the holiday season. Picking out the perfect Thanksgiving card can mean hours spent googling “Thanksgiving cards near me” and walking card aisles hoping you will find the right one for your personality. With Kudoboard, you can custom-create a board to compile you gratitude messages along side photos, GIFs, and videos.
Finding ways to express gratitude throughout the year is important for our minds, bodies, and relationships with others. Thanksgiving cards might not be necessary, but they are a great way to pause and reflect on what is most important. Sending them to friends and families helps to create more meaningful connection and to hopefully inspire them to remember what things they are thankful for in their own lives.
We have worked hard to make the process of designing Thanksgiving ecard so simple, anyone can do it!
Once you click the “Create a Kudoboard” button on our website, our template will walk you through each step quickly and easily. You will be prompted to input the name of the recipient and a title for your board, and then you will select which type of board fits your needs best. From there, you can try out a variety of backgrounds until you find the right one. Voila! Your gratitude board is created!
Now comes the fun part: adding in the virtual Thanksgiving messages from you and/or members of your group. As the creator of the board (hats off to you), we suggest you do the honors of the first post. That way, when others come to add in their messages, they have an example of your creative ingenuity (you’re welcome) as well as how this digital gratitude card works.
If you are sending a group Thanksgiving card, send everyone a link or email inviting them to contribute, and watch as the board fills with messages, photos, GIFs and videos. You will be amazed at how seamless and easy the process is!
You’ve made your Thanksgiving card already but it’s sitting in front of you completely blank. We know, this is the hardest part! The most important part is that whatever you write comes from a place of genuine love or gratitude. Because we can’t read your mind (sorry!) we aren’t able to tell you exactly what to write. But here are some Thanksgiving message ideas to hopefully get you thinking in the right direction:
- “Wishing you a Thanksgiving full of all of the things you love the very most”
- “Our hearts are full reflecting on all of the goodness in our lives. Thanks for being at the top of that list!”
- “Our cup of gratitude is overflowing this Thanksgiving season and we hope that you feel the same”
