I enjoy every postcard. I don't 'favorite' any postcards I have received. My favorites list is of postcards I do not have.
The list below is just to make things easier for you but it is not mandatory. I appreciate postcards of all sorts (including things not on the list). Enjoy whatever you send because I will enjoy it when I get it.
I do prefer stamped postcards and no envelopes please. I am not a stamp collector but I appreciate the stamps used as much as the postcards. Also, please remember to write the date on the postcard.
I like views of country/city (single or multi-view tourist cards are great!!), history, architecture, archaeology, art (but not abstract, manga or anime), landscapes, geologic formations, stars, aurora borealis, rainbows, animals, birds, butterflies, bees, flowers, trees,tall ships (masted ships), fountains, clocks, bells, candles, royalty, people in national regalia/costume, national celebrations/festivals, national holidays, especially Christmas and New Year (religious and non-religious), spirituality (any kind), postcards with inspirational or funny quotations (I translate them using Google translate but if the characters are non-roman I would need the translations written on the back), the colour green and anything sparkly. I like printed postcards of your own photos too.
Recently I decided to make a theme of fountains across the world. Different views of the same fountain are just fine.
My hobbies include visiting people, cooking, flower gardening, hiking, nature photography, singing, calligraphy and knitting. The only television I watch are mysteries and cooking or travel shows.

P.S. If you are from the United Kingdom...I would appreciate an Agatha Christie stamp
P.S. If you are from Finland...a postcard about your 100th anniversary would be great
ABOUT THE NAME 'MOOSE JAW'
One of the most commonly asked questions is, “How did Moose Jaw get its name?”
The most likely theory is that the name comes from a Cree word, “Moosegaw”, which means ‘warm breezes’.
