Get Well Soon Messages: Examples of What You Can Write in the Card

Have you ever been stuck on what to write in a Get Well Soon card? Maybe your best friend or family member is feeling under the weather with a common cold.

Maybe you have that one silly cousin who insists on acting out crazy stunts and, as a result, he’s always ending up in the hospital.

How to Create the Perfect Card - Examples

Whatever the cause of their malady, you want to send them a Get Well Soon card because you know it will brighten their day and, at the very least, they will know you were thinking of them. Recognizing that someone else cares for your well-being? That alone can make anyone feel better.

Sentimental Get Well Soon Card Message Examples

The problem with a blank card is that it’s so overwhelming when you first open it. There’s only a limited amount of space, but there’s so much that you want to say. And there’s always the pressure of trying to figure out the perfect words to say. The most important thing to remember is to be as honest as possible.

Remind your friend of that happy moment you shared together that you know will make him or her smile. Or, if the card is being sent to a parent or family member, add a note about that cute little anecdote from your past that, at the time, made them so angry but now has become a go-to story that makes the entire family chuckle at the memory.

A smile can go a long way, especially if a person is not feeling well. See below for some examples of sentimental Get Well Soon messages that may just sum up how you are feeling. Or, at the very least, maybe these can get you started on the right path to finding the correct words. Don’t feel like you need to copy these as is. You can always add your own flair and style to these messages to make them more personalized.
