Sending a get well card to a dear one, friend or even a colleague is one of the sweetest gesture to show that you care and wish him to get well soon.

In that case, here are ready-made wishes that can be used in a handwritten get well card.

What to Write in a Get Well Card

On hearing of a person's illness, long or short, the first thought to cross the mind is to meet him/her personally to brighten him/her up and encourage for a quick recovery. Sometimes, it may not be possible due to varied reasons.
In these cases, sending a card can be the best option to show that you care. Although you can get a ready-made card in the market, a handwritten one seems more personal and will definitely touch the heart of the receiver.
The text written in the card depends on your relation with the person. Get well messages are often very simple and brief; written in a sentence or two. It is recommended to keep it that way, as elaborating on it too much is not actually necessary.
In formal cases, a short simple message can suffice; whereas in informal friendly cards, you can add quotes or verses. Humorous get well cards are also quite popular these days. Here are some sample wishes.
