Now that I’m an adult, sending Christmas cards becomes more normal- and almost a necessity in certain social circles. I’m sure once I have kids (or maybe just another cat) I’ll do the whole “let’s take a cute photo and send it to everyone we know on Christmas”, but for now I find myself just sending funny, cute cards to a handful of friends and family. One place that has become my go-to for cards for an upcoming occasion is Cardstore.
I’ve used Cardstore previously (and gave my own Cardstore review on my blog last summer) for other occasions, like my dating anniversary, and love the variety of cards they have. You can customize the cards to your liking (with photos and text) and then mail them electronically or have them printed to you and mailed with an envelope. I prefer the tangible cards, so I always opt for that option. Getting something in the mail with your name on it is the best feeling, right?
This year, I stocked up on a few cards for Christmas- a sentimental one for my Mom, a funny one for James, one that’s perfect for a blogging buddy of mine and then a couple of cards that are great for anyone who celebrates Christmas (a.k.a. last-minute cards to give to someone when they send one to you!)
While you’re browsing their cards, why not enter the Candid Christmas Cards contest? Choose your funniest “real life” photo and create your own “real” Christmas card to submit.
