Your time is here, 2022 grads! With graduation right around the corner, you’ll probably be receiving quite a few cards and gifts from friends and family members who want to celebrate this important milestone with you. While being showered with attention like this does feel great once in a while, it’s important to take a moment to thank all of the people who helped you get to where you are today.

Whether this includes a family member, a trusted professor, or an inspiring mentor, take a moment to express your gratitude to the important people in your life. Sending a Hallmark card or Hallmark Digital Video Greeting is the perfect way to go above and beyond a simple “thank you.” The best part? As a 2022 graduate, you can send one Hallmark Digital Video Greeting thank you card for free!

Consider sending a card to these important people:

1. Family members

Family can mean a lot of different things. Maybe your family includes your parents and siblings, or maybe you’ve created your own chosen family made up of close friends. No matter who comes to mind when you think of your family, take a moment to let them know how much you appreciate them. I promise it will mean so much more to them than you may think.

2. Your favorite professor

We all have that one professor who stands out as a favorite. Whether you really enjoyed their class or received important advice and guidance from them, be sure to send them a thank you card to tell them how grateful you are for all they’ve done for you.

3. Inspiring mentors

If you’ve been lucky enough to have a mentor to inspire you throughout college, a special thank you is in order. Personally, I have a few mentors I’ve looked up to throughout college (even a few here at Her Campus!), and I definitely plan on thanking them for everything they’ve done for me over the years.

4. College roommates

Graduating college often means moving away from your roommates. They’ve seen it all, from your highest highs to your lowest lows. Taking the time to write down how much they mean to you is an easy gesture that goes a long way. Plus, it’s great pen pal practice if you’re going to be living in different cities post-grad!

5. Supportive bosses

Celebrate this next transition in your life by reaching out to supportive bosses you’ve had over the years with a hand-written thank you card. Not only is it a nice gesture to show them you care, but it’s also a great way to stay connected to people you could work with again in the future.

6. Best friends

Chances are many of your best friends are also graduating this year! To thank them for all of the laughs, memories, and support, create a custom Hallmark Digital Video Greeting to send to them on graduation day. You can add your favorite photos from the past four years and even film a personal video message for an extra special touch. Be sure to tell them how grateful you are to have had them by your side every step of the way throughout college, whether you went to the same school or not!
