One of the saddest trends in the past few years is how many people no longer send Christmas cards. I get it. With Facebook and other social media, people feel as though everyone is already updated on their lives, so why spend the money on cards. But going out to the mailbox and seeing cards from the people I love instead of the usual stack of bills is truly one of my favorite things about the holidays. So I emphatically implore you, KEEP SENDING CHRISTMAS CARDS!!
It has become a tradition around here for me to involve my readers in our Christmas card selection. I’ve had so much fun over the years compiling my favorites and seeing which ones you love too. This year I’m really excited that we are getting our holiday photo cards from Pear Tree Greetings. They have the most beautiful selection of Christmas cards you can easily customize for your family. From modern to classic. Embellished with foil and ribbon. Tri-fold or postcard (even ornaments, mini photo books and banners). They even have a selection of cards without pictures that are stunning. If you can dream it up, they probably have it. Cards are printed on heavy premium paper with a variety of envelope colors and styles to choose from. It is Christmas card heaven.
I thought I would highlight a few styles and you can vote for your favorite in the comments:
I am not the biggest fan of the whole green and red thing. I love that this card usually totally nontraditional colors. Plus how fun is the back??
I love how many pictures you can highlight on this card. And the BACK. I’m OBSESSED with the back!!
I know this one is on the plainer side, but I love it for its simplicity. With the right picture it would be stunning.
The bright colors, the polka dots, the baby!! Okay so obviously I couldn’t use the baby, but this card is so cheery and fun.
I just love the black, white and gold combo. Plus everyone looks amazing in black and white.
The spots, three kids. Plus a little spot on the back for Ryan and I. Or maybe the dog…….
A card with pop up photos? Plus a spot for a little update? It is the card of my dreams.
Peekaboo. I love this freaking card. #thatisall
This one feels like Instagram in Christmas card form with a vintage feel on the side. Love it.
I am absolutely enamored with Pear Tree Greetings. With most people ordering from the same old places, I feel like these cards are a breath of fresh air.
Which one do you love?
Disclosure: I was provided with Christmas cards for my participation in this post. But love and obsession with Christmas cards? That’s all me.
