MODERN CHRISTMAS CARDS FOR A HEAD START ON YOUR HOLIDAY TO DO LIST

How is it already October? It’s like I blinked and suddenly the insanity of the holiday season is right around the corner. Fall weddings, a shopping night, holiday parties… They’re all totally sneaking up on me! One of the things I’ve always wanted to do but never seem to get around to is mailing out holiday cards to family and friends. My parents hang ribbon across the windows in their kitchen and use mini clothespins to hang up all their holiday cards. It’s so fun to see how everyone’s kids have grown up in the past year and to read the holiday letters that some families include.

I will say that there are a lot of ugly holiday cards out there. I am pretty picky when it comes to paper goods but I stumbled upon a treasure trove of clean, modern Christmas cards and wanted to share for those of you looking to get a head start on your holiday to do list! What’s cool is you can also customize the silhouette of your card, which greeting you’d like to send (holidays, Christmas, or New Year), and choose from several font colors to get it looking just right.

  1. Spending a night writing out Christmas cards is one of my favorite holiday traditions. Love spending time writing personalized messages. I too enjoy receiving them and seeing how families have grown. A guilty pleasure is reading the newsletters that accompany some of them from the obnoxious relatives (I’m sure we all have them) who feel the need to tell us just how perfect their life and high achieving kids are.

  2. We get our Christmas cards from Nico & Lala every year, and we’ve always been SO happy with the results. Since their work is custom, it always matches our family’s personality (and chosen photo) so well. Christmas cards are a tradition I hope lives on in perpetuity!

  3. Artifact Uprising has some really cool ones that are very simple, but they’re perforated so that you can detach the photo (save it) and then the other part that says “Merry Christmas” (or whatever) can then be used as a gift tag by the recipient. 🙂

    1. I know it sounds a little crazy to plan so far ahead but I have a friend who insists on finishing her holiday shopping in August and every year I’m jealous I didn’t do the same. 🙂 I think this is a great time to start thinking about cards so you can have family photos taken and take your time addressing them instead of handwriting every envelope in one sitting.
